There is actually quite a bit of activity as a result. One of the better videos explaining the issue come from Ted Bier, of Ted's Holdover fame (not so much fortune!). H.A.M. has it on the front page, and as of yesterday afternoon, it was still up on YouTube.

One on-line blogger stated Vimeo wasn't an answer, but it appears most folks are gravitating to that site. It was also suggested that the airgun community start its own video storage site. I guess they have (had) no idea what kinds of monies we're speaking about.

And just because I could... I removed what little I had posted on YouTube, and cancelled my account in total. While I have no idea if I ever made YouTube any monies, I sure don't want them profiting from me.

You'd think that youtube would in the very least given folks a warning, and explained what the beef is.

Well, if it happens again, you all can use www.airgunflix.com. It was started by Dana Webb, better known as Crosman999. Thank him, not me.
