Splogville (Jay Dedman)
Categories: Tech

Someone’s going to get a bunch of justifiably angry emails from the Videoblogging Group tonight.Imagine if a website launched…and they simply reposted blog posts from Boing Boing, Scobleizer, Engadget, etc. These kind of sites are called “splogs”. Any funded site knows this is a no no.But new video hosting companies are still all learning that you can’t build a site by stealing other people’s video either…which is exactly what MyHeavy.com has done. * They seem to be pulling videos from different feeds like Blip and Google. * They repost them to their site with a preroll video ad…and an image ad all around the video. * They put a MyHeavy watermark on the video. * They resize the video from the original intended size. * They have no linkback to the original blog or blog post.
