I have recently had issues with people taking my DVDs and making them available for free download. I am assuming it is some company from overseas, and taking any legal action will be too much for my little company to handle.
So, I am considering changing my DVD/film process.
– Make a new web site (or somehow combine it with my current site) that charges a fee
– Make all DVDs available as a download through this web site, and continue to add video every week or 2 (depending on what I am working on). These videos would be either quick 5 minute demos or full video of a complete project.
– They will not be professionally edited, but I will attempt to get good close-up shots
– All videos will be available whenever you want, if you subscribe
Please give me your feedback. I think this is the only way to prevent the information I film from being illegally downloaded. And it will also put the pressure on me to get more video filmed while I am simply carving and doing what I do daily. Photographs are one thing, but video shows so much more…
I am assuming that people are unaware that these downloads that are available are illegal, as they appear to simply be legitimate web sites. Please be aware that if you see my DVDs being offered as a free download, they have not gotten my permission to do this.
If anyone can guide me in the direction of how to start this process, please let me know.
Thank you for all your support and encouragement!
