Clip theft is a concept in vidding. It refers to getting footage for a vid from other vids rather than from the unaltered canon source. In many vidding and AMV-making communities, this is a serious breach of fannish etiquette akin to plagiarising fanfiction.

Some vidders watermark their work to deter clip theft.
