Most of us know that copyright laws are n't exactly strictly enforced in Thailand, it seems that Nikon Thailand and/or it's advertising agency are not worried about IP rights. It has come out that the promo for the Thai launch of the D800 opens and closes with images of the D800, but much (if not all) of the footage was done on Canon gear, and used without permission of the original videographers ! http://youtu.be/z0WO4qdoo3U

This is interesting.  It's very common for promotional footage or images to be done with whatever gear the advertising agencies photographers use.. often it will be medium format backs and the like.. but you say used without permission?  I'm not sure I understand this part?

Well, the promo includes footage from unrelated projects ( a ski movie and an advert for Strongbow Cider for a start) that was used without the copyright owners knowledge, the guy who shot the snow scenes has specifically said (in the comments at the Youtube link) he knew nothing about it.....and that he uses Canon gear! The Strongbow advert was shot in Australia at Bondi beach about 5 months ago for the start of our summer. Sure, an advertising company would use their normal gear to shoot a new product, but the "borrowed" video implies that the video footage has been shot with the new D800...not so!!

Ah.. I get it now. This is similar to the Gopro cameras.. a friend bought a complete setup hoping for the great quality videos he was seeing on their site which at least seriously implied this was the video you get with the Gopro.. but a halfway experienced eye told you it was a gryo (ken labs probably) high end video cameras. And they didn't need to do that, they shoot decent video for what they are. There's a lot of bad judgment and just downright poor ethics out there.
