It is always sad to see that some people take advantage of others in this way. Good series you are doing here Steve. It helps people be aware that what they are looking into buying may not be all it is cracked up to be. I will look forward to seeing the next installment. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

So would you be upset if “Ted” or anyone else re-packaged your videos?
Could you prevent it? How?
I thought maybe you could put a message at the beginning of each video – explaining that it’s free and if anyone charges you for it they are taking you for a ride. But someone could easily edit that off. So you would practically have to put a scrolling title at the bottom of the screen to that effect that covered the whole video – and that wouldn’t be pretty. You should definitely look into copyrighting your work. But I realize that doesn’t prevent someone from repackaging it.

I love your videos and your straightforward style. So please keep it up!

Steve -

Good work. Do notify Clickbank. They should care about these issues (if they don’t… more for your story!). The lack of contact info will catch their attention first and foremost, followed by the lack of clear copyright on anything.

Pretty hard to prevent if you haven’t go the money to chase and persue it… It is basic copyright. Anything you make and produce, write or photograph is instantly copyright protected under international by laws and agreements even if you take that photo and put on the net it is still copyright protected by the orginal author, and you must have the orginal authors permission to reproduce or use it. You do not need go and get anything done to have it copyrighted it already is, as soon as you produced it.

Would I be upset if I made video’s for free for any one to view, if you search the net. The aswer is “Yes, I would especially if they have not even had the decency to ask, if they can use my content. (not that I have made any videos or anything) But I do write music and have found on quite a few occassions my music on compilation CD’s that are for sale…for $25.00. Wait a sec I give my music away for free if you want to use it for some ask… and if you make money from my muisic then where is my cut of the share.

Many freeware software authors have the same issue, I have seen many freeware applications for sale buy other so called authors… but wait as second go to the softwares website and get it 100% free from the auhor…

People making money off other peoples works simply shows greed and simply disgusts me…

Rant over as you were… :-)

Yes! Complaints should be sent to Clickbank! By Registered Mail w/receipt too.

If they cannot get a reply from his Email address, I would think that, alone, would be reason for dismissal.

Add all of the other violations and I think they should Remove him from their site.

Keep fighting, but don’t let this consume you! A lot of us enjoy your work, I can honestly say I look forward to it each and every Friday. I’m not quite as interested in your work with Ted’s Woodworking. They are obviously scammers. I hope they aren’t using your videos for profit, and I hope you don’t let this affect the great things you are doing on the web. Keep it going!

Don’t worry Dwain, these are videos from my other YouTube channel...Mere Minutes.

I don’t usually post them on LJ because they aren’t project oriented. I thought some LJs might find these interesting as something of a followup to my woodworking scams video a couple years ago.

Regular Mere Mortals videos will always be on Fridays!

Steve I enjoy your wood working show. But i think this is serious we belong to these sites and although lumber jocks is not as bad as a lot of sites. if you happen to use someone elses material you get called to the mat. or its taken down or block. but then you get someone like teds thats paying to advertise get a way with jamming up the sites and none of these site or company’s do anything to them. i look forward to the rest of your investigation. Wood workers we all have to pay for are internet and i for one think its crap that we have to put up with spam and being deluged with ad after ad start complaining if we dont its only going to get to the point were it takes minutes to get through to the programs we like to watch.

Thanks Steve

Great videos Steve, one thing though with all this talk about copyright infringement. Do be careful with what you place in your next video in regards to “Ted’s plans”. We wouldn’t want you to get into trouble for posting images of paid plans on a free website. I could be wrong and maybe someone else knows more than I about this matter. Just a thought.

Good research on the click bank (You know were the money goes, naaaahhhh)

Seems that Ted is a multisectorial entepreneur. He makes him call also Ronaldo.

He is an expert on male health as well

But He also writes in the same web on Woodworking.,-Tips-and-Carpentry-Tricks&id=4204608

So we have two TEDs now.

I wonder how many STEVEs do we have
