I called you about this but you didn’t return my call. Your CNet TV site has been stealing my work.

Try a search on “CNet” and “NerdTV” and you’ll find many of my NerdTV my shows, complete with their Creative Commons attributions at the end prohibiting their use on commercial sites. CNet TV is a commercial site because it carries advertising.

Why does your professional media operation feel the need to rip off my work?

Here’s my Google search:


Here’s a sample CNet page. Notice the Blackberry ad.  There are other ads.


I don’t know how long this has been going on but stop it immediately.

These shows and NerdTV season 2 will appear in the fall on a site that actually asked permission to use them.

Take them down now.

Note — As of  Sunday evening July 3rd Cnet appears to have taken down the NerdTV videos.
