    Ok, so I do toy reviews. I have a healthy channel and after a certain point it's to be expected that people might start trying to take advantage of me. However, this is pretty weird:

    This is my video:

    Transformers Prime Megatron Posing - YouTube


    And so are these:

    Transformers Prime Megatron Posing YouTube - YouTube

    Transformers Prime Megatron Posing - YouTube


    Notice anything strange? Yeah, there all the same video. All uploaded by three different channels, only one of which was uploaded by me and properly formatted.

    Here's the video description of the two imposter videos:

    And he also provides "download" links in the description. This asshole is trying to claim my work as his own and even made up a bullshit story about how some "friend" helped him. I've reported both instances to Youtube and I've PMed the guy, telling him that if he wants to reference my videos on his channel he can feature my videos, make playlists for my videos, favorite my videos and make his favorites list public, and link to my videos.

    But I have to wonder, why this video? Why twice? Why at all? What does he hope to accomplish?

    If I recall a fair while back on some chinese video site (I think it was chinese anyway), a ton of Peaughs videos were being taken and reuploaded in 240p.

    Really strange. Not sure why. I wouldnt worry though, just report it and move on.

    It's not that I'm worried, I just want to understand what's going on.

    I had once a little dispute with a guy from Holland who uploaded illegal music to YouTube and had my logo used for the video and claimed it wasn't mine, he found in on Google... :banghead: 

    As if I wouldn't recognize a logo I personally designed and created and as If everything would be for free, just because you could find it via Google... hellooo?!

    Thieves are everywhere. Need to copyright/watermark everything on the net.

    Bastards.

    Yeah, it's a pretty sad day when we've gotta use watermarks on toy posing videos...

    XD

    If the dude just linked to me and didn't act like it was his video, I'd have been fine with it.

    The same has happened to a video I had uploaded and someone else re-uploaded it and guess who it is... a user that had commented on the original video he/she had stolen. I'm about to report that user as well.

    Video no. 2 has disabled the comments and video 3 doesn't seem to appear for me at least. Ps. Cause of your video I can wait to get Deluxe Megatron.

    People are weird. Reminds me of the time someone stole my ex from 6 years ago's photos on myspace and pretended they were their own.
