You know, since he's proven he's a troll who's just trying to get attention, that might be your best bet at this point. I know there's a group on YouTube who investigates vid and clip theft, let me see if I can find who they are and I'll pass you the link along. You can turn it over to them and they'll do their best to get it taken down. But of course, a troll just lives for attention so you know he'll continue to enjoying all of the arguing no matter who it's from.

It's kind of ironic because yesterday I had somebody contact me at YouTube to let me know that they'd seen two of my Doctor Who vids reposted by somebody else (with my credits cut off but my watermarks still visible). I decided to try a different tact, so I wrote that person a fairly friendly note, saying that I'd noticed they posted my vids and, while I was glad they enjoyed my vids, I'd rather they just favorite them instead of reposting them, so would they please take them down? I really thought I'd be in for a fight because of how they'd already gone to the trouble of rerendering them both to remove my credits.

Well, I got a message back this morning saying, "Oh, sorry" and they removed the vids! I have to say, I was kinda stunned! Very happy but stunned!

But all too often when you get some pathetic person with no life who lives to get people stirred up and loves to cause arguments and such, then they'll keep the vid up forever just because otherwise how will they get their kicks and who would talk to them? If that's the most fun they have in their life, how truly pathetic is THAT?

I think that this is exactly the case. Well, not sure about the attention part, but im 100% sure that he a troll Plus, he has started to block users, so I suppose that the only way is to spread the info about him. And I'm not sure if flagging even works on YT.

Aw, I'm happy for u that those "stealers" just took those vids down I tried to write him a friendly note (well, not so friendly, but I still wasnt that mean) and he said that those are his vids and that i stole them from him I'm going to keep my eye on him, since I cant comment on him anymore. But still... Stealing sucks!

I had someone steal clips from one of my Mick and Beth(Moonlight) vids. She's from Germany and it was her first video on them. I sent her a message to tell her to remove the video from youtube and she sent me a message this morning saying that she removed it saying "I'm sorry I had no idea it was so important to you. I will just upload it again without your clips"

Anyway I posted a thread at Moonlight message board about clip theft and alot of the posts were about because I took the clips from the show without permission then someone else taking my clips from my music videos I shouldn't get all upset. Saying isn't that that pot calling the kettle black. I don't see it that way and yes it's true WE don't have the permission from the creators of these "shows" to make these fanvids but you can't look at it as a black and white issue. When others take stuff that you added effects to and took days to edited clips together. Then they shouldn't take all that hard work and stick it into their own video and claim all that work as their own.
It's interesting how others view all this.

that's why we have watermarks see the watermarks in the corner of the clips? That's heather's mark, its on all of her vids. the tag is meant to deter people from stealing, but it doesn't always help :S:S

nah; you can't search for it. that's why its so annoying; unless you randomly recognize it, like I did with that one, they get away with it :S:S:S Tagging doesn't stop the thieves, but it helps us to identify clip theievers :S Cos like with that one; i recnognize heather's tag There was one ages ago that stole chunks of clips from one of Aislynn's vid and the tag read 'Aislynn' like DUR!!! :S

OMG I'm just now seeing this. GGRRRRR!!! Not only are the ones with my WATERMARK on them mine, the ones that have the little snowflake in the corner are mine too. Also some towards the end that have no watermark but have that black line down the right side, those are mine too!

Clip thefters SUCK!
