Repost for James Gunn
eBaum's World is a Piece of Shit, as is Eric Bauman
Category: Movies, TV, Celebrities
Let me explain to you a little bit about how JAMES GUNN'S PG PORN works. We get a small amount of money up front from Spike, which essentially covers our production costs, but almost nothing else. We then get paid a certain CPM -- a certain amount of money for every thousand hits. Most of us create PG PORN for free, with a little hope of some money on the back end. Not everyone who works on PG PORN is wealthy, or even close to it. The hundreds of dollars (not even thousands) my co-creators will make off of Spike.com really doesn't pay for the countless hours of work they've put into the project, but at least it's something, and it helps them to pay the rent and eat.
Spike.com has been a fabulous company to work with. They've let us do whatever we want with the series, and it helps them to make a little money because when their hits go up they can charge their advertisors more money.
So it kind of sucks when a disgusting lowlife piece of shit like Eric Bauman, the dude who owns eBaum's World, blatanly makes a rip of PG PORN: ROADSIDE ASS-SISTANCE and posts it on his site with an eBaum's World imprint on it. He could just as easily post an embedded file from Spike, giving them the hits, but he chooses to blatantly and obviously steal it anyway.
And this is not a one time thing. eDouche also stole NAILING YOUR WIFE and posted that on eBaum's World as well. Our lawyers contacted him to tell him to cease and desist, which he did... after a week or so when the hits had died down.
Currently, ROADSIDE ASS-SISTANCE is up on his home page and has gotten 60,000 hits. Viacom's lawyers are contacting the anus-sucking boy whore to tell him to take down the content, which he certainly will, after a certain amount of time. It's all become a part of eBaum's business practices. They steal videos from other people, post them, and gather all the hits while they're hot, then lackadasically remove the videos when they're contacted by lawyers.
Perhaps if it's a video from a big company or major studio, it doesn't make that much of a difference. But I can tell you it definitely makes a financial difference to my partners, and it makes a difference to me as well. If PG PORN, or my other projects in New Media, cease to be profitable, I can't continue to create them.
So what can you do?
1) You can contact the advertisors on eBaum's World, and tell them you will no longer use their services as long as they advertise on the site. They are complicit in the illegal activities. Here are a few whose services I will no longer use --
Time Warner Cable
2) You can spread the word that eBaum's World sucks, and tell everyone you know not to go there.
3) You can visit, watch, rate and comment ROADSIDE ASS-SISTANCE on the only legitimate site for PG PORN, Spike.com/pgporn .
Let me also say that YouTube has also featured rips of PG PORN in the past. However, a few things make it different: 1) They aren't actually posted by the dudes who run YouTube, 2) When we contacted them about taking it down, they took it down in a few hours, not a fucking week, and 3) YouTube has put new technology in place where you can give them footage and any videos coming in matching that footage will not be allowed to post. So far, we have seen no illegal rips of ROADSIDE ASS-SISTANCE on YouTube. (I just talked to Jake Zim, our distribution chief, who said that JUST TODAY YouTube has blocked 17 users from uploading ROADSIDE onto the service.)
Anyway, that's it for now. Sorry to infect you all with my bile. I'll be back tomorrow, most likely, with a less pissed-off blog.
