Dave Palumbo has come up with a solution regarding bodybuilding media, and we think he is absolutely correct. During his latest edition of Iron Debate, Dave came up with some very good ideas regarding bodybuilding media.
Everybody has to work together and not one entity trying to take everything for themselves.
For example, we have already teamed up with sites such as musclesportmag.com. When we have a good story that we think they can add to, I just send it over and they build on it and the other way around.
Why try to kill each other when we can all have a better product at the end of the day. Everybody still can make good money, sharing a story will definitely not effect that.
We do use footage from other sites, and we are not afraid to say this. We are not stealing as Mr. MusclePhone (@MusclePhone) said, but we gave him a nice reply for this last month. If the footage is on youtube and there is an embed function, it is for the public to share. At the end of the day, the person you get it from is getting the hits, and as well they will be making money from the google ads that appear on the advert as well. So it is a win win situation.
Everything we use, we give credit to and as well we ask for permission. We have peronaly Dave Palumbo and he was very nice to let us use his footage as well, as long as we give credit and use the embed function. And that is the right way to go about it. We are the same with NPC and all the rest.
The idea of having a webcast for each professional show would be great, even if we had to pay a small fee to watch it. It will be a great idea.
Well said Dave, finally somebody put this out in the open!!
