The terrible hypocrisy of Telecinco (II)
Telecinco, a tremendously hypocritical and contradictory chain that used to make us laugh (because of the nonsense they did) but now it just makes us angry. Some examples:
- They sued the sixth so they can’t put images in their programs, but they continue to put images from other networks without any problem.
- sue Google/YouTube so they can’t upload videos of theirs, but they use any video they see on YouTube and don’t give credit.
- They complain about “computer hackers” referring to those who capture portions of the chain’s video and upload it to the Internet, but they do the same on their website.
That same company now demonstrates an even worse level of hypocrisy: some time ago Rufino Herrera-Garcia posted a video on Youtube where he showed that Telecinco violated their copyright, using an image that belongs to you without any permission. Reaction? denounce him and have his account deleted for a video showing how the chain violates copyright. To cry.
One wonders how is it possible that about to arrive 2009 there are entire companies that do not have the slightest idea of what the internet is, especially media companies operating in Europe, in a country where a very large number of its inhabitants use it on a daily basis and quite actively. Isn’t there a single person in Telecinco with some power to reconsider those who insist on this stupid battle against Internet users, against YouTube under the pseudo-excuse of copyright?
