Hey everyone, I ran into some problems with an online video competition sponsored by Ziddio (www.ziddio.com). For those unaware, Ziddio is a YouTube copycat, but differs in that they do competitions. Any advice would be much appreciated. Ziddio sponsored a video contest called Are You WWE's Biggest Fan? (Yes, I'm a huge wrestling fan). The rules and requirements, which I have a hardcopy, are pretty basic: no copyrighted material (merchandise that you own is considered fair use); one minute or less; under 100MB; uploaded as QuickTime (H.264 recommended), Mpeg, or AVI; no defaming of other companies; and no performance of wrestling moves. Entries could be submitted til July 31st midnight. From there, judging occurs until August 3rd. Top 10 rated videos are finalists along with 5 others chosen by a WWE panel. The 15 finalists win a trip for two to New York, along with hotel accommodations, tickets to a live event, and a red carpet event. I submitted my video on July 31st, 12 hours before the deadline. It was a QuickTime video with H.264 codec at 65MB with 95 kHz stereo audio. I received an automated message saying that the Moderators Team has to review it before uploading. If there are any problems, they will contact me and allow me to resubmit the video. In the meantime, a web page was created for my video, just with no video embedded in it. Each webpage has an ID Number. I got suspicious when other videos with higher ID Numbers were uploaded just a few hours after mines. So I emailed them, but they didn't respond. Finally, after two days, and many emails, I get a response from them. They apologized for the long wait and that they SUPPOSEDLY found audio problems with my video. They go on to say that there are other contests that I may be interested in. WTF?!! So I complained about the following: - Why did it take them two days to respond? - Why aren't they allowing me to resubmit my video (I really doubt there's anything wrong with my video) - How are videos with copyrighted materials allowed to be uploaded? That's just a quick summary of my complaints. I plan on doing a formal written complaint to Ziddio, Comcast (parent company), and the WWE (nothing against them, I just want to inform them of my complaint to Ziddio). Each will contain a letter, emails to and from Ziddio, and a DVD of the final video (with images and some raw footage to show the amount of effort that went into it... approximately 50 hours of effort). Anyone got advice for me? Do I have a case? My college professor said that if they don't handle my complaint well, I should get a lawyer and file a lawsuit. Anyone else I should contact? I visited the Better Business Bureau website, but it seems like a business-customer transaction needed to take place. I'm not sure. HELP!
