This site has no original content whatsoever. All they do is copy pictures and videos from somewhere else on the internet, photoshop out all watermarks that giving credit to their respective creators and instead replace it with a horrible looking "ebaumsworld.com" mark. They in turn make money from ads plastered all over this unoriginal, copied content. What a bunch of lazy, freeloading riff raffs. The owner Eric Bauman even went so far as to put malicious code in the homepage. Its a miracle this clown hasn't been sued yet.
I like much of the content- and it is on my favorites list- but users should STAY AWAY unless they run NoScript and Request Policy. As always, people who use defenseless browsers are just asking for trouble. Bank on getting more viruses. Your local repair shop loves you!
Some of the things running in the background absolutely need to go and perhaps losing business will make them straighten up their act.
It is controversial for many reasons, primarily because much of the content on the website is taken from other sources without permission and rebranded with the eBaum's World logo.
eBaum's World has garnered controversy in different Internet communities over the years due to numerous incidents of content being taken from other sites (such as YTMND, Something Awful, Albino Blacksheep, 4chan, Olde English, Weebl's Stuff and Newgrounds) without attribution. Companies such as Viacom have claimed that the Baumans have infringed on their copyrights as well.
this site is just full of funny vids n pics. yes it has advertising, yes some of the quality is bad and yes some of the vids have been taken fro other sites but really, who cares?!?! just laugh or don't go visit it
