Webcam model tips how to remove your recorded video

 

Being a camgirl is a great way to make a living – there’s no doubt about that.

what’s not to love? You get to work from home, run your own schedule, and have a massive amount of fun while doing it. You get complimented all day long – which worked wonders for your self esteem. You get to dress up in sexy outfits, and play out your fantasies in front of a paying audience. You get to make more money than you ever did in any office job, out in the ‘real world’, and you are really not working anywhere near as many  hours as I may have done.

 

However, there are some times when the world of camming can be difficult, and the same technology which allows cam girls to do this job, is also causing one of the biggest annoyances in the industry. I’m not talking about time-wasting clients, who promise you the earth and yet seem unwilling to actually pay for your services. I’m talking about videos of my performances turning up on free porn tube sites.

Reasons that viewers who upload your videos are your biggest enemies.

Firstly, camming job does require some anonymity. Most of cam girls don’t really want people to be able to come across them while they’re browsing for porn.

 

Secondly, webcam model’s performances are their job. They’re how they make money. If they’re splashed all over tube sites for free and people are watching them without paying, Cam girls are essentially being ripped off.

It’s essentially taking cash from model’s pockets, and taking customers away from their room.

 

Thirdly, recording them without their permission, and then allowing someone else to profit from their image, their hard work, their body… it’s a violation, and it is understandable that models get really angry.

 

The problem is, if you’re a reasonably popular camgirl who works regularly and has a fair number of punters, the likelihood is that this situation is going to become a reality for you sooner or later. Almost every camgirl I know has googled herself, and come across her videos on a tube site… and not one has given her permission for that to happen. It’s an epidemic in the industry, and while some people would tell you that it’s simply a risk of the job, and something that you cannot help, I’m here to tell you that this simply isn’t true. It’s against the law, and there really is a lot you can do about it.

Ok, here is what you need to do

DMCA

Removing recorded camming show

What you need to familiarize yourself with is a piece of legislation known as the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or DMCA for short. This piece of legislation was introduced in 1998, and signed off by Bill Clinton, and essentially allows you to exercise your right as the copyright holder of any digital material. Make no mistake about this: you ARE the copyright holder of your videos. You don’t need to add a watermark or a copyright sign to your shows – you are the subject of the video, it is your performance and nobody else’s. The copyright is therefore automatic, and as such, anyone recording, sharing or selling your video without your permission is breaking the law by doing so.

 

The DMCA dictates that the tube sites which show pirated video can be quickly and easily sued by the copyright holder, if they don’t quickly and effectively remove the video upon receiving a notice claiming they are in breach of copyright. Now, these tube sites really, really don’t want to be sued, and as such, generally have a team of people whose job it is to receive these notices, and ensure that videos are promptly deleted in accordance to them.

How to report the recorded cam show to take it down

What to do if you find your show is recorded

If you discover that a video of your performance has been uploaded without your permission to a tube site or anywhere else, the process to getting it taken down is quite an easy one.

 

First, confirm if the content belongs to you or the site you work at. Most of camming site has terms and condition that whatever you broadcast is camming site’s property. So check the terms and condition.

If it belongs to the site, then report to camming site about the recorded videos. the camming site takes care of taking videos down.

 

If the terms and condition does not state that the content belongs to the site, it is your property.

That case, you need to contact tube site by yourself.

At the bottom of almost all major porn tube sites, there will be a link entitled something like ‘DMCA’ or ‘ABUSE’ or simply ‘CONTACT’ which will give you an address to mail a notice of copyright infringement. Make a note of the URL of the video or videos, and copy them into the following letter:

“My name is INSERT YOUR LEGAL NAME.   A video that your website hosts is infringing on at least one copyright owned by me.

A video was recorded and uploaded onto your servers without permission.

The unauthorized and infringing copy can be found at:

PROVIDE WEBSITE URL WHERE YOUR RECORDED VIDEO IS

This letter is official notification under Section 512(c) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (”DMCA”), and I seek the removal of the aforementioned infringing material from your servers. I request that you immediately notify the infringer of this notice and inform them of their duty to remove the infringing material immediately, and notify them to cease any further posting of infringing material to your server in the future.

Please also be advised that law requires you, as a service provider, to remove or disable access to the infringing materials upon receiving this notice. Under US law a service provider, such as yourself, enjoys immunity from a copyright lawsuit provided that you act with deliberate speed to investigate and rectify ongoing copyright infringement. If service providers do not investigate and remove or disable the infringing material this immunity is lost. Therefore, in order for you to remain immune from a copyright infringement action you will need to investigate and ultimately remove or otherwise disable the infringing material from your servers with all due speed should the direct infringer, your client, not comply immediately.

I am providing this notice in good faith and with the reasonable belief that rights I own are being infringed. Under penalty of perjury I certify that the information contained in the notification is both true and accurate, and I have the authority to act on behalf of the owner of the copyright(s) involved.

Should you wish to discuss this with me please contact me directly.

Thank you.

YOUR NAME

Address
City, State Zip
Phone
E-mail”

When reporting to the site, you have to use your legal name as DMCA requires it.

Typically, you’ll get a reply within a day or two, confirming that the material has been removed – although it’s a good idea to check that this in indeed the case. If your videos have NOT been taken down, it’s worth seeking further legal advice, and you’ll likely be entitled to compensation.

 

It’s unfortunate to say the least that this happens on a regular basis, but thankfully in these cases, the law really is on the side of the performer. Hopefully, if more camgirls chase up these copyright infringements, the people running the tube sites will cotton on that something needs to be changed, and will think twice before uploading anything to their sites without first checking they have the right to! However, it may be some time before that happens.

 

Still don’t let it put you off, and make sure you fight for your right to cam professionally and profitably!
