Last month, I shared some thoughts on Vimeo, AI, and the future and asked for your feedback. It’s been incredibly helpful to hear from so many of you as we navigate the evolving landscape of technology and creativity together.

As we integrate AI tools into Vimeo, our goal is to uplift and protect the creator and their creative process. Gathering this feedback ensured that our community’s voice guided our decisions and that we approached this question with transparency and inclusion.

After extensive outreach and hearing your thoughts, we are taking a definitive stance contrary to many other community websites: Vimeo will not allow generative AI models to be trained using videos hosted on our platform without your explicit consent, even if you use our free offerings. In addition, we prohibit unauthorized content scraping (by model companies) and continue to implement security protocols designed to protect user-generated content.

This decision underscores our role as a protector of creative rights and reflects our dedication to the ethical and transparent use of technology.
