I'm guessing the pictures of the football games was the issue?

Lost of people (including myself) embed YouTube videos of movie scenes, music and music videos, etc. Is this infringement also?

It was actually links to TV shows on the networks websites on a very old thread.

i dont believe youtube counts because they police for copyrights.

but for our sanity, when in doubt please hold off.

I soooooooooo want to post a link to Mahna Mahna. But I have a feeling that might be the culprit... Farking copyright farks!:mad:

I'm not even sure who posted it. I just removed it immediately. it was in woodpile and was a few seemingly harmless links. What I THINK pissed them off was that I had 'video framing' turned on. Thats where your videos get framed and play within the post instead of having to CLI k a link and go off site. That frame actually streams from off site but LOOKS LIKE IT HOSTED HERE. I have a suspicion that they thought we were copying their content to our servers and playing from here.

that's just a hunch. I can't see any other reason.
