    Yeeah, 5 hours ago I uploaded a short video I recorded from tv broadcast of latest sports game match (hockey related) and it has already 3,178 views 31 ratings and 29 comments! :D

    I think I was the first one to upload this video to yt because I submitted it around half an hour after the match was over.

    what should I do now??

    you provide a link to your offer or website on the video or you tell them that if they want more of the same to subscribe to your mailing list. do you have any offers that would appeal to hockey fans?

    Here's hoping too that YT don't pull it off.

    One comment I have and this could help mitigate any claim whatever Hockey Federation may get all steamed-up; if indeed they do - is to place the following comment in the description box, to the right of your video:

    "Notice: The Video On Our Official Page - (Web or Blog URL), Belongs To It's Respective Owners And We Claim No Copyright Over it".

    I saw this wording on a fellow forum member's (kumansk is his name) web site and FWIW thought that by placing something like this could tactically help offset a whole heap load of sh1t.

    Kumansk btw is promoting Eminem (eminem3am.com) and you can see an example of what I mean by checking-out his forum posts.

    I had a friend post a spoof of a Nike commercial, and it wasn't a big commercial either, and it went somewhat viral.

    This is a great marketing method.

    what I would do is add some annotations and a link to a quick landing page with the old poll method --> make a vote on the LP something like "who played better? russians or canadians and get a chance to win an iphone (or whatever email submit you want)"

    i don't have any better idea now but don't loose that traffic.
