    I tried follow the journey where he advised, get a domain, redirect to offer, download and water mark a bunch of video that are non-watermark, and upload to xvideos, that thread got a 300 thanks can't recall where I got it now and it was 2014 post.

    but 5 days later I got this word beside my videos
    Waiting for legal documents for notice

    Contact xvideos, they are pretty good at dealing with this stuff. Asked them what video it is and make it not visible or ask them to delete it. If it breaches copyright all you have to do is remove the content and you've complied. It's when you don't comply that you will get into trouble.

    No, NOT funny, ask the same question at GFY . Xvideos works with content partners and they do not like to see their videos with other watermarks. If you use my videos I will be taking some action to because it is just stealing..

    I've just had the same thing happen to me when I uploaded a video.
    I contacted Xvideos and explained my side of the story and how I had no clue it was copyrighted and then closed my account.
    I don't want anything to do with that site anymore...
    Will I get in trouble? Legal trouble?
    Just seeing the words 'legal documents' just terrified me.

    What I suggest you do is move to Mexico, change your name to Pepito and start selling sombreros for a living.

    No, you're not in trouble.

    For any future by-passers, any time this happens it means that a take down notice has been issued by the original content owner against the video you have uploaded, and that in compliance with DMCA, XVIDEOS contacts you (the uploader) in case you wish to dispute the claim made against you, XVIDEOS wont automatically remove the content because you may actually have a legal right to use the content, and as such it allows you to dispute the claim by handing in the legal documentation that proves your right to use the content despite the claim made against you, if you do not dispute the claim, then the video is simply removed by XVIDEOS and end of story. If you persist in uploading content that you do not have a right to use, your account will be banned after it receives 3 separate take down notices. This is explained in their TOS.

    The Counter-Notification Process

    When a user’s video submission has been removed pursuant to a DMCA take-down notice that complies with 17 U.S.C. § 512(c)(3), the Website shall notify the user of this removal.
    Pursuant to the Website’s repeat infringer policy, the user then has seventy-two (72) hours to submit a counter-notification to the Website, explaining why the original take-down notice was sent in error. The Counter-Notification may be sent to the email the user originally received a notice from (c******).

    For the Website to consider a user’s counter-notification, it must comply with the requirements of 17 U.S.C. § 512(g)(3) and include the following:

    1. A physical or electronic signature of the user.

    2. Identification the material that has been removed by providing one or more URLs where the material was previously available.

    3. A statement under penalty of perjury that the user has a good-faith belief that the material was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or misidentification of the material to be removed or disabled.

    4. The user’s name, address, and telephone number.

    5. A statement that the user consents to the jurisdiction of Federal District Court for the judicial district in which the address is located, or if the subscriber’s address is outside of the United States, for any judicial district in which the Website may be found.

    6. A statement that the user will accept service of process from the person who sent the notice of alleged infringement or an agent of such person.

    Counter-notifications that do not satisfy all of these elements are ineffective and will not be considered by the Website. Failure to provide effective counter-notification when a takedown notice is issued for a video posted by a user’s account will result in a strike against the user’s account; three strikes, as described on this page, will lead to the termination of a user’s account under the Website’s repeat infringer policy.

    Even if he uploads videos "that are not already on Xvideos", or videos that he has downloaded from somewhere else other than Xvideos for that matter, does not mean that he wont still get an infringement notice as the copyright to that downloaded content almost certainly belongs to somebody else.

    I learned about this recently but some companies actually buy the rights to porn clips they know people have violated copyright on by re-uploading solely for the purpose of suing the people violating the copyright.

    It's just like patent trolling only it's porn. Porn trolling.
