the mirror would do well to reflect further

If this is the wrong place to post this I apologize in advance, but this site seems to be stealing thousands of artist's identity info / work to set up fake profiles and drive more traffic to the site.

Just found a fake profile page for me and a couple of my former students on the site.

http://viflux.com/

After contacting the domain owner he removed my fake profile with this text attached:

"Oh my god, somebody tag your unique video in the site. OH MY GOD....
Your profile now is deleted.
Peace for your brain."

The point is that this person has no regard for artists or their work and is driving traffic to his site by stealing / reposting work to make his site look better. Then, adding insult to injury, offering them the chance to "claim their profile" even though it has already been created.

I suggest you goons check to see if he hasn't stolen your ID and work as well.

This kind of thing is so....

If you have a vimeo page, you have a fake profile on here. he's duplicated every single account on there.
wallpart just grabs images from google's image search. most of the samples of new stuff is just random poo poo.

It's not really as big of a deal as you're making out, both sites are completely automated. people printing $6 'posters' from poo poo resolution image search results are such a tiny thing to be bothered by.


I might buy this one though

such a great poster. this one is choice too - http://wallpart.com/poster/-466897977

all the view counts and ratings are randomized.

Seems like I should contact vimeo then. However, I guess mirroring websites is perfectly legal, so it is a waste of time.

From Viflux:

"You think that we are mirroring vimeo profile and It's not true. We have 1M profiles, maybe 300k have Vimeo(And Vimeo has 32M users). The normal use of Viflux is use the search tool and not search your name in google. If you see viflux.com/stefansonnenfeld he hasn't vimeo (Or maybe yes but we don't have this information).
If I walk for the street and I write the names and address of the restaurants I can create a search of restaurants. Where is the video creators? How can we organize video creators?. If you see our page and try our search you will see "skills" so where are the skills in Vimeo? How Viflux know that one person is "director of photography"?, Vimeo is cool to hosting and distribution of Video but where the creators get jobs? Viflux is trying to accomplish this task.
If you really want to know what we are doing , please write an email and we restart our relationship . Maybe we need to create the "how it works" page.
Thanks "

That's a lie, this http://viflux.com/neilgriffiths-use...c5f7f6_71113964
order of videos and bio text is exactly as it appears on vimeo and is nowhere else.
