Manyvids changes watermark policy to allow external links to personal websites
Clip site Manyvids, still under heavy fire for their recent ban on external linking, has informed performers that they may watermark their videos with personal websites. The update specifies that it must be a website that the performer “own[s] and manage[s]”, presumably to filter out performers who have branded URLs that redirect to external platforms, such as a ModelCentro site or OnlyFans profile. All content uploaded on or after February 20, 2021 must conform to these standards, and enforcement will begin on May 20, 2021.
“To align with our guidelines on external links, aimed at ensuring the safety of the MV Community, we allow watermarks that feature your individual brand, or a website you own and manage that matches your brand. We don’t permit watermarks that display URLs to external platforms.” – from the Manyvids watermark acceptance criteria page
