In case you haven’t seen or heard, Charged Media has officially announced they are kicking you in the bean bag on a policy they encouraged for many years. I’m okay with the fact they no longer want affiliates “promoting their network” via uploads and/or watermarks, but this part here is pretty disgusting (entire e-mail below):
“All domains purchased by us to be used as watermarks will be redirected internally until expiration.”
So they are basically saying, yes we were buying domains for you to use, we wanted to keep control over them in case they would expire or get redirected to a competitor by you, but now we’re just going to take all of your work we’ve encouraged you to do and just dump that in our bank account instead of yours. Oh and by the way, strap your dick because your account is going to get its entire life DMCA’d and will probably get shut down.
Thank you Charged Media,
You guys suck and you just sucker-punched your entire affiliate base.
Not to mention steal from us. Redirecting our links internally…
Your network has been absolute shit since Sadiq took over.
Look forward to your inevitable and now accelerated downfall.
Webmasters, save yourselves some time and look no further, move to Carnal Media. I moved my chips there a long time ago when I saw Charged Media declining and have never been happier. Better production, better actors, amazing account managers, more flexibility, and best of all, better conversion rates.
Thank you, for being a valued partner of PaperStreetCash, MylfMoney & ChargerCash.
As you may or may not know, many companies have moved away from allowing affiliates to upload their content to various tube sites. As merchants, banks, and tube sites adjust their policies, so must we.
In an effort to protect our brand and content, we are forced to make a policy change with regard to affiliates who are tube submitters.
As of August 1st, 2021 we regret to inform you that we no longer allow affiliates to promote our sites via content submission on tube sites. This includes the method of using custom clips with non-official domain watermarks on our content.
You’re receiving this email because we have purchased domains for your account and prior to this policy change, we’ve allowed you to download full movies to cut/crop and re-watermark our content for tube site submissions.
Again, effective as of August 1st, 2021, this will no longer be allowed. All domains purchased by us to be used as watermarks will be redirected internally until expiration.
Any and all sales made prior to this policy change date that have been paid out via Revenue Share will continue to rebill and you will be awarded your share of revenue via your affiliate account.
You will no longer be allowed to download full movies. You will no longer be allowed to watermark said movies and you will no longer be allowed to submit any of our content to tube sites you do not legally own as an official partner.
Any violation of this policy will result in payment holds and account banning. We have a zero strike policy in place for this. Please reach out before the policy change date if you need further clarification.
Again, we appreciate your business and partnership over the years and we encourage you to use other valid methods of promoting our sites to generate traffic. We have a large portfolio of sites and ad tools still available so please reach out to your account rep for help. Our support team is ready to assist in any way we can!
