This week, I messed up badly and owe an apology.
I published two video classes that were created by Brian Teeman.
I took Brian’s name, copyright photo and copyright biography and put them on those video classes as the teacher. I didn’t have permission to do that.
Using Brian’s copyrighted information caused confusion and put him in a really awkward situation.
I’d like to make several things clear:
- Brian Teeman does not work for OSTraining or with OSTraining.
- Brian Teeman does not endorse OSTraining.
I have much to do after these mistakes.
I started by unpublishing the two video classes and related blog posts.
Next, I need to improve our internal processes, with improvements such as making sure that all video classes have formal approval from the teachers before publication.
First and foremost, however, I apologize to Brian.
