just read this from the skatethis.net

sept.1 all videogame related videos (which includes all users that make ea skate. vids) are banned from vimeo and will be removed

accordingly all machinima will stay?:confused:

I can understand clips from games, copyright infringment and all that twaddle, but user created stuff? Madness I tells ya.

*psssst* what's machinima?

idk if i spelled it right machinima or machinema which is movies created by video games. example would be red vs blue which was made from halo
i guess ea skate. videos does not fall into this category

yeah...how they're handling the situation is disrespectful and demeaning too

i'm done with vimeo...even if they allowed us to keep videos their attitudes are completely ridiculous...

karma will come their way

*oh and exposureroom.com does look pretty good...i'd say on par with vimeo quality-wise
