Manyvids updates policy to clarify that only videos uploaded after February 19 will be affected by the new ban on external links
After an avalanche of feedback – most of it negative – Manyvids has updated its new “no external links” policy as it regards watermarks on videos. Performers were concerned that the policy appeared to be retroactive, which would require models to take down all videos that featured watermarks that included external links. Manyvids has now updated / clarified the policy to indicate that the new policy only applies to content uploaded after February 19, 2021. Only videos that feature a URL watermark will be affected – watermarks using logos or text that are not a URL are fine.
“UPDATE: We understand that watermarks on vids are essential in helping you protect your content online, so watermarks with names and logos will still be permitted. Only watermarks linking to external websites are not permitted. Please note that the new rule regarding vids watermarked with external links will only be enforced on content uploaded after February 19, 2021. MV Stars will not be asked to change any content upload prior to this rule going into effect.” – Manyvids Blog
