Gag reel hearts
I am constantly blown away by fans and their generosity and all rounds amazingness.

A YouTuber alerted me to the fact that someone posted one of my vids to their YT. No credit, no acknowledgement that it's not theres - you know, that stealing thing that seems to go on. It was nice to know someone had my back.

Though.. it makes me wonder that, like Tumblr, it might be considered "reblogging"? So repost someone else's vid as a way of passing it on maybe? It doesn't seem right but graphics are reblogged all the time on Tumblr with out credit so maybe it's no different? (ack! I didn't mean to get thinky on this... but it did occur to me).

The lovely feather_touch has donated a signed copy of her book to spn_littlebro for us to give away to a littlebro member. She's even paying for the shipping... so if you'd like a hard copy of Marked Yours (:koff: Branded Yours) go HERE for the details. \o/ (Any queries feel free to ping me..)

Speaking of which... if you guys read any hurt!Sam or Hurt!Jared Big Bang stories that you'd like to share be sure to link them at spn_littlebro. I'm so excited for ALL the fics that are coming out. How INCREDIBLE everyone is.... the talent just blows me away!

And while I'm here bythedamned needs an extra hug for making... *wait for it*..... graphs!! Ack.. I'm in geek heaven.

Tumblr is a special case, though. Credit is somewhat inherent in the reblog. When you reblog it says who you got it from and stores a history of who posted it and all the times it's been liked and reblogged in the notes.

And when it's not a gif/graphic but actual artwork or photography, an actual credit line is still expected to be given even on Tumblr.

And I do see reposting a vid on YT as a breach of netiquette because it's implicit on YT that you own the content you upload, unlike on Tumblr. So just the act of uploading a vid implies that you made it because there are other venues for sharing/distributing it without having to repost it to your own account.

Aaaaah - I didn't realise that about reblogging. So you could trace the source back if you wanted to. I get that. It's interesting then how many gifs/graphics make it to LJ without credit... though I've noticed a lot of stuff now has tumblr watermarks on them.

And yes about YT. I think it's rude to upload someone else's work. even if it's to share... but there are other avenues of sharing on YT - like favourites for example.

Maybe I should be kicking up more of a fuss. I checked though and no one is watching so...*shrugs* I don't know what to do..
