Have you noticed in the last month that video clips of Only Fools & Horses have basically disappeared from Facebook?
Up until recently, if you liked any Only Fools & Horses fan pages or groups, then you couldn’t go a single scroll down your news feed without seeing a video from the show.
But then all of a sudden these videos stopped overnight!
The reason for this is simple – the BBC have decided to strictly enforce their copyright on Only Fools & Horses (and other BBC shows as well).
This means that the BBC copyright team are actively pursuing pages which post clips from OFAH, as well as groups in which individual members post any videos.
At best, the “host” of the video (either the page or the group) will find their video clips deleted and a warning given. At worst, page and group owners deletion of their entire page or group for posting the copyrighted clips. This has already led to the downfall of one of the largest Only Fools & Horses fan pages – Only Fools & Horses Reactions – which was marching on towards 1 million fans, but which is now no more!
So if you’re wondering why we always post video thumbnails that take you through to this website (as opposed to being viewable on Facebook) there’s a very good reason – it’s the best we can do to show you Only Fools & Horses video clips without placing our page at too great of a risk!
