Happy Spring! (& Tongue Out Tuesday) 🌷
I wanted to share my experience with @dogsofinstagram
with you to ensure that none of you get manipulated into unknowingly selling the rights to your content that you have worked hard to create. I have submitted a few videos and photos to @dogsofinstagram
in the past assuming that I was only submitting content for a chance to be featured on their page (which was previously a dream of mine). To my horror, I found out yesterday that I have unknowingly signed over the rights to my content to @dogsofinstagram
and gave them the right to legally own/monetize my content in any form they please. At least one of my videos has now been sold and uploaded to YouTube by another company called “CollabVideos” who now owns MY CONTENT and is making money off of MY video and MY dog. They even have the right to tell you to remove your own video from your page since they legally own it! DO NOT SUPPORT @dogsofinstagram.
DO NOT UPLOAD CONTENT TO THEM. DO NOT LET THEM EXPLOIT YOUR FUR BABIES AND HARD WORK! SPREAD THE WORD!
