I notice that big newspapers are always stealing viral videos and stamping their logo on

    Huff post, the guardian etc. I find it pretty cheeky how they just hijack popular videos online and watermark their crappy name on the videos and never seem to source where the orignal came from.

    Or do they pay the original person for them do you think?

    If it's any unknown like us we quickly get flagged and videos removed etc. so how do these 'corporations' get away with it?

    They are news organizations, and news organizations get to pick stories they consider news. A video going viral is newsworthy, they are simply doing their job. They just have lawyers in case someone complains.
