    Downloading someone else's video created in Fiverr and uploading the video / re-branding it as my own. I'm pretty much stealing it. HOW MUCH TROUBLE CAN I GET?

    Someone will file a DMCA to take your video down. They may or may not sue you. Then you'll be taken to some secret prison where you'll be waterboarded, they'll make a video of it, rebrand your name and publish it under a different ID and profit.

    You'll be arrested and sent to North Korea forced labor death camp.
    Seriously, don't do it.
    What would you do if someone does that to you, stealing videos you made with hard efforts and hours of your time?
    Put yourself in other people's shoes.
    And even if you make some money out of it, sooner or later, that business model (stealing) crashes down, bringing negative consequences to you.

    Hopefully not much because that's my next course of action also. Following the rules on the internet is a bad thing and it will leave you broke and homeless.

    If the video is of a Fiverr guy. Just pay him and get your own video done by the guy.

    Why would one like to bet their reputation for $5?

    That same Fiverr guy will cost me $75-100. The video is 2min 30 seconds long but the first 60seconds is all I want. I was thinking of taking that 60seconds and then adding 30seconds of my own video.

    I guess i will just have to save some money and do it right. Thanks for all the input.

    As long as you change the MD5 hash of the video, your video should be live for quite some time. It will get removed eventually though (keyword: eventually)
