    my friend wants to post a 'revenge' video of him and his girl on the net...
    but does not want to get sued or anything...

    i know this is kind of off-topic,
    but he said that he can be traced---as in the original author of the movie.
    --he says that the movie file will say that the movie was created with his camera (or serial number of the camera) as well as the create date, name of computer owner etc etc.

    is this true?


    also, can he be sued =)???

    *********i posted here b/c i remember seeing a few revenge threads like this here************8

    ya it can be traced, and ya he can be sued, well in canada at least. But if she decides to do something about it she will make it even more public and draw more attention to the video.

    Are you kidding me? From the sounds of that, this kid is in the video. I think the header information is the least of his worries if he lets it out.

    what exactly can be traced that can incriminate him?

    as far as i know, the only thing that can be seen in a .wmv file is the Date Created..


    does it show what/Who's computer it was made to, who the program was registered to, etc?

    last time i checked canadian laws, as long as one person know about anything being recorded (ie, phone taping, video cameras) and is not on the person's private property, it is legal. hence why voyurism is legal in canada.

    but IANAL
