    I recieved to of these messages today, both very similar...

    "We would love to be able to use your clip of ******** on the GMTV programme tomorrow.

    To do this, I need to have your agreement as you have copyright over the item.

    Would you be happy for us to show the clip? We are talking about funny videos on the web tomorrow morning at 8:40am and wanted to include your video. I am afraid we cannot offer a fee but hopefully you'd like to see your video being used on a show watched by 6 million people!

    Please let me know, either by replying to this message or emailing me at jemma.carlton@gm.tv

    Many thanks

    You could always do a whois on that site.

    But, I don't see a real problem with that.
    There are no downsides to them showing that video.

    I didn't believe it the first time I got one either, but it's probably real.

    They do that daily show all the time where they show funny videos its legit, i know a lot of people who have been mailed that, its legit!
    And go for it they say your name out sometimes too and the video name, its a daily or every other day show where it shows funny videos actually good! watched by millions.

    So accept it fast because theres millions of vids to choose from so dont keep them waiting.
