    What do you think are the dangers for watermarking vidoes that are not yours. Lately I have been uploading half videos to xvideos and than using ppd to content lock the other half.

    I simply post a shortened link in the title and description and people follow it to the ppd site. Now if I was to ever get noticed or feel like someone was on to my scheme I can simply remove all the links and be good.

    I also had the idea that if I was to watermark the video with the link the traffic would increase because people could download the file and the link would stay with it. However with that said the owner of the video could also find the link and follow it to my ppd site or link shortener and possibly discover me.

    What are you thoughts? Am I just being paranoid or is this a logical concern?

    PS-Can people find out who made a shortened google link?

    If they wanted, they could track you down and sue you for copyright infringement, although it's not very likely someone would be willing to go to that extent. Plus, the PPD network may not even want to reveal your info, I'd guess that they get tons of complaints per day and responding to each of those if probably not worth their time. Anyway, have you had any success with this method? I can't imagine too many people willing to fill out a survey just to finish watching a porn video...
