Update: 27 October 2018 - I have decided to remove the watermarking from both the live stream (done some time ago) and the WeatherCam itself. Thanks to all those who provided feedback and for your patience.
You may have noticed that I have recently added some prominent watermarks to the Aberdour weathercam's images, time-lapse videos and live streams. Unfortunately, this has been a necessary measure, due to the continued unauthorised republication of footage taken from this camera.
The footage from this camera appears to have proven popular, predominately with a number of conspiracy groups that like to focus on typical optical artefacts (mainly caused by the fact the camera faces directly into the rising sun, which can create a variety of visual anomalies such as lens flare), in a bid to support their various theories.
The operation of the FifeWeather weathercams comes at significant personal expense and it is very frustrating to see my footage being used and republished on YouTube channels and videos (typically monetised), without my consent. As such I have decided to add the watermarks in a bid to deter (or at least make apparent) this dishonest behaviour and disregard for my intellectual property rights.
I do apologise for any inconvenience caused to the vast majority of viewers that watch and enjoy these cameras for their intended purpose of enjoying our varied, changeable and sometimes severe weather conditions along the Fife coastline.
I'd also like to thank those folk who have contacted me to alert me to the unauthorised use of my footage.
