(crossposted from pool 'blog)
Today I got an email from someone I didn't know telling me to check out another pool site.
What I found there were copies of my PDF files and videos. Exact bit-for-bit copies even.
I received no credit, and if not for my URL at the bottom of every page in the PDF, and the fact that it was me shooting in my basement in the videos, there would have been no mention of me or barenada.com on the entire site. The files were clearly meant to look like they belonged to the company with the website.
After a few phone calls I spoke to someone at that business. He assured me that they had no idea that the site contained copyrighted material, and that he would take care of it.
Time will tell I suppose.
For now I'm not sure whether to feel violated, or proud, or both.
