Blip.tv has deleted my account because I apparently violated their terms of service. I assume that it has something to do about the ads that I upload, they might have interpreted it as promotion for the goods/services. The worst part is that I wasn’t even informed.
Though my intention, as any regular reader of this blog would agree, was never to promote a particular product. It was to put at one place ads that people love and those from another age that I managed to dig out. It was for the students and the researchers and the ad lovers.
I hope Blip.tv restores my account or at least lets me download the content, so that I can put them up elsewhere (where they will be less likely to be taken off). Should have kept a backup of so many years of effort. I have some, but not all.
I used Blip.tv to host my videos because I found it much better than any other video sharing services out there. Though I didn’t intend to use ads on the videos (it doesn’t pay much anyway), I did because my conscience told so. So that the good guys at Blip.tv get some benefit from providing me with their (till now) excellent service.
To be fair to Blip.tv I even got paid for my share of the advertising revenue that the videos I uploaded generated and reinvested it back to my online interests.
Till the time I put things back in order, please bear with the videolessness (also some audio) on this blog. And this could take a while.
