KJ! - I hope Zuffa doesn't come after my lil forums but since I'm not making money they shouldn't. Phone Post 3.0

You're smart enough to know that they cannot pursue you legally. You simply posted in order to plug your forum.


So he's very very smart is what you're saying?

Kirik,

I sincerely appreciate your direct response. I honestly was not expecting one. I think, after reading your replies, I now have a better understanding of the very unpleasant position you've been put in. I also stand corrected- it was Jason who initially commented on the .Gif-banning issue. As I've said, I wish you nothing but the best, and I really hope this works out well for us all moving forward. Thanks again for your response.

And che1f, thank you very much for the offer. It says a lot about a person who, out of this whole mess, took the time and consideration to read my long-winded response, see a small part of my story, and offer assistance. For your consideration & kind offer, I am very grateful.

Again, I hope you guys all have a great weekend. Phone Post 3.0

Kirik -

Please do not post animated gifs of the action at UFC 172, or post links to same, or request same.

I know that people who post animated gifs are not doing so to make a killing, and are just trying to share compelling content with a community of fellow devotees. However, the content is owned by ZUFFA, not us, and they have made the determination that posting animated gifs is bad for business. I have heard all the arguments for why piracy, gifs, etc are all actually good for a company, but my belief is that if the UFC is smart enough to create compelling content, they are smart enough to know what uses are in their best interests.

So please don't post animated gifs of UFC 172, or links to same. Any who does so, the mods will have to give them a red card, so please don't.

I just kind of get pangs of the SOPA debate, in both the UFC's position and Kirik's comments on the issue (which was heavily debated here, and I think there was an underestimation of whatthe reaction would be to that legislation by both politicians and industry supporters). I have had nothing but positive  interactions with kirik over the years, and emphathize with the position he is in, but I think I also just have a fundamental disagreement with him as to the validity of the UFC's specific actions in these instances (while still understanding  the concept of copyrights though not always in the way certain business' and governments choose to implement it.

I trust them to look after their business, but I do not necessarily trust them to inherently respect whatever rights others may have while doing so. They can fight for their rights but others can fight for their own rights too (verbally, legally, or by other acts of protest)

As respectful as Kirik is if Zuffa's alleged rights, the big lesson here is that they ate threatening someone who is sympathetic of their cause and probably scaring the shut out of him, the assholes Phone Post 3.0

Test.

Dana if you read this please reconsider this copyright GIF issue with the UG.

Over the years GIFS have given us loads of entertainment but also gives us the ability to discuss techniques used in the fights, etc. GIFS have literally kept fans coming here over the years and the loss could kill the whole vibe of the UG.

I understand the use of copyright material is considered detrimental to ZUFFA the company but they're also a driving force in the entertainment value of for your fanbase.
