LONDON — JT of ReallyUsefulCash.com was the first to raise the topic: That XVideos.com has changed a key policy that affects uploaders to the popular tube site.

JT brought up the news this morning on an XBIZ.net post, which has brought out scores of comments about the policy that in essence makes uploaders give up copyright protections.

The statement to uploaders is demanding: Users must agree to never remove content, or face having their content channel eliminated.

"All actions will be locked until you either accept or reject these terms," the XVideos message said. "Due to recent events we have to request the following: All the videos you upload under your account will remain on XVideos and you renounce the right to request them to be deleted.

"Accepting this will allow you to update your account and upload again. Rejecting this will cause your channel and all your videos to be deleted."

JT told XBIZ.net users that the move by XVideos is "directed at everyone and will affect everyone."

He said that he refused to sign on to the agreement, despite the fact he gets a lot of traffic from XVideos, and gave up his channels on the site.

"[It's] a maneuver by XVideos to counteract my request last week to them (and other major tubes) to have all of my FakeTaxi.com clips removed from their site because I have signed an exclusive deal on FakeTaxi.com with PornHub network," he said. 

He continued on to say on XBIZ.net that users are "in effect giving them perpetual rights and ownership over every clip you have ever uploaded to them via their CPP."

"You lose complete control over your content and this is not something you should be doing," he said. "You never know what is going to happen in the future, and what is on the imminent horizon for content owners in this industry.

Execs from XVideos, operated by a WGCZ S.R.O., which runs scores of adult websites including the XNXX.com franchise, were unable to be reached post time. XVideos attorney Marc Randazza told XBIZ he could "neither confirm nor deny any relevant knowledge."

Later today, JT revealed that he may have to challenge XVideos because one of his uploaders clicked on "accept" for the MassageRooms.com account "as he didn't even bother to read what was written."

"So, according to [the] XVideos announcement, they now have full ownership of all videos ever uploaded to that account, forever," JT said.
