    Could be that they found your video interesting. You should get on skype and discuss with that person and check more about it. Maybe it could be a profitable thing for you and could bring loads of views to your video.

    thank you so much guys
    the problem that i'm afraid of, is all my video license are standard license the music (bought from audiojungle.com) and images from (depositphotos.com) and for airing videos on tv another license is needed i have talked with them about the liceses that i use in my videos, and they told me that as long as i have a standard license it's fine, and they will handle all performance rights for airing on theire network

    and they have sent me this document to sign it's in attachment files
    please what do you think

    Anu updates on this? I received the same e-mail. Seems legit at first glance but of course am also cautious.

    Thank you :)

    What they are doing is collect video rights on a large scale basis, to build inventory. They have no obligation to ever use your videos, but they have the right to do so.

    Note that it clearly says that you need to own all rights to the content. So in case you use any non-licensed music, clips, or images,you open yourself to a serious risk of litigation, as the videos will potentially air on cable.
