I am bummed!
From what I know of Dick Mills, he probably knows something about pitching, but I’ve never been a fan of his self-aggrandizing style…which reminds me of some race-track touts I used to see out in front of Golden Gate Fields back in the day.
Now, I am personally bummed out: He embedded one of my YouTube slo-mo clips of Tim Lincecum, and wrote a piece to go with it that makes it sound like he and Tim and Chris Lincecum are all good buddies, just seeking pitching mechanics truth together…
What’s more irritating, although I changed the YouTube setting to “private” for awhile, in order to shake him off unless he gives proper credit for the video on his website, Mills’ still somehow has access to it and he refuses to acknowledge the source.
Not-for-profit blogs are one thing, but unauthorized commercial uses are something very different…at the very least, people doing this sort of thing need to properly acknowledge the source of the video clips they are using for commercial purposes.
Although I can’t seem to shake him off without deleting the clip, which I am unwilling to do, I hope I have made life a little bit uncomfortable by re-titling the video: “Dick Mills cribbed this video from: laflippin”.
If he doesn’t respond, the title is just going to get worse.
