Copyright ignored again?

Yesterday I received a Google Alert for Conductive Education which appears to be a video produced by the Foundation for Conductive Education.

Over the years a number of such promotional films were made and if I remember those correctly this particular upload seems to be a bit of a cut and paste job from more than one.  There is no mention of any production date that I can find.

This film was uploaded by ‘Pearley Franc’ and  on going to the home page of the website I can find no information about this person just links to other films that have been uploaded. None of these appear to have any link with Conductive Education and I can find no Pearley Franc on Facebook .

The website dailymotion.com  appears to be a facility that you can join up to and use to upload videos of your choice and is based in Paris.

Perhaps the Foundation knows about this and has given permission to use its films but there is no mention or acknowledgment to say so.

Copyright is something which seems to get ignored on the Internet as many people appear to think that anything published on the Web is up for grabs and  are happy to cut and paste to their hearts content from websites, documents and films. Perhaps those who hold copyright to their material should try and monitor it a bit more and at the very least require acknowledgment of their work.

    I wonder if the people in the pictures have given permission for their images to be used in this way? It is surely, at the very least, courtesy to ask, let alone a legal requirement?
