Veoh Stops Posting without Permission

Om reports that Veoh has responded to critics and changed its policy.

From the post:

"Veoh was facing the ire of the video bloggers for taking their content and transcoding their videos into a proprietary format. A day after, the company backed off from the practice and is now seeking permission from the video bloggers. Veoh has removed all the videos they had re-hosted without permission. Dmitry Shaprio, CEO of Veoh wrote to video bloggers group:
We have made a decision to remove any videos published via an RSS feed that have not specifically been claimed by the feed owner. If you have published your feed to Veoh, but have not been able to claim it yet, it has been removed, and we ask you to please republish it. We apologize for the inconvenience, but there was no other way to clean the database."
