Veoh = piracy; also: Discovery Networks asleep at wheel

Standard

Doing some research for work on the existing science / tech / green shows out there, and I keep coming across cool ones on Veoh. Except that they’re all pirated.

Someone at Discovery Networks needs to wake up and send the takedown notices. In the meantime, I’ll continue to enjoy downloading full episodes of Extreme Engineering and Man vs. Wild.

Didn’t we learn this lesson over a year ago with Youtube?

While I’m on the subject, another expression of Discovery’s apparent paralysis in the face of the web is that this network doesn’t even bother with their own YouTube page (unlike National Geographic and, well, just about everyone else) which leads fans of Discovery programming to re-post material from their itunes teaser feed for them. This kind of sloppiness just kills me.
