[theprp.com] Puscifer have apparently begun a campaign to cut down on unauthorized Puscifer footage uploaded to Youtube, be it promotional or live. The following message was posted on Puscifer.com February 01st:
“We are currently working on some form of reciprocal exchange. Almost 100% of the copyright infringement on uTube from other channels never gives a nod to the source. No mention of Puscifer.com or www.youtube.com/pusciferdotcom being the official channels for Puscifer, Caduceus, A Perfect Circle, and Tool. No traffic is sent our way. This recent barrage of cease and desist notices is an attempt to correct this.
People/artists doing videos using our work without permission deliver an added sting when they don’t even mention our sites. We are independent. We NEED the traffic to OUR URL’s and channels to survive as an independent project.
So some form of reciprocating gesture needs to be put in place for us not to be pricks about it all. Then and only then will we consider allowing people to use our art and product in conjunction with theirs.
Having said that, NO live footage is EVER permitted. The live experience is to be enjoyed in the moment. Not on the internet.
We’ll be in touch.”
At the time of this news posting numerous unauthorized videos from Puscifer, Tool, etc., without any return links, were still available for viewing on Youtube.
