The copyright holders of one video, posted by an arts organization in Cyprus, tried to argue to Vimeo that the 2006 was made by the author “using his own photos and sounds/music on a shoestring budget and infringes no copyright.” They pleaded with Vimeo to “check the video in question and confirm for yourselves that it breaks no copyright laws and that it has nothing to do with the latest multi-million blockbuster which prompted this notification.” The wonderful response from Vimeo wasn’t “Oh crap.
