    Alright, short little intro, and then onto what i need

    As i posted in an off topic thread, i recently quit my job to do im FULL time. i was doing quiet well with it. my main source of income came through my youtube video. I made my Own ORIGINAL content, that linked back to my money site.

    This was working great, till one day, i wasnt making money. i ran to youtube to see that my videos were deleted. Due to "copyright claims by users"

    The user was "Crooked Crook" i shit u not. thats what it said...

    I quickly made new accounts and Reuploaded my videos. then i got really upset. someone had downloaded all my videos. and reuploaded them to various accounts and pointed them back to THERE money site *and they runnin some nasty PPI stuff*

    Guys, this makes me sick. im worried now how imma pay the bills, while someone is using my vidoes, that i created, with my voice, to make money.

    Screw that!

    How can i get his videos removed / banned

    I hear people saying that if u use tube increaser unwisely youtube will ban your videos. is there validity in this? im scared if i do it, ill just make his videos more popular.

    Im just upset / scared right now.

    ANY help is appreciated.

    Thank you for your time

    So basically, you quit your job, to work online making money from youtube?

    Eh, you should have a base, to knowing what to do, when all methods stop working dude.

    And about tubeincreaser shit thing. Why you ain´t putting his links in that tool, and making youtube ban his account.. "Revenge!" ;)

    Yeah, that's like true blackhat...old style, asshat, stealing... call it whatever you like..
    Have you considered writing an e-mail to youtube first, or even calling them?

    I mean, considering you said you actually made those videos, with your own voice, you could even prove those are yours. Why lowering yourself to that thief's level if there's no need for it?

    Good luck, man!

    will it really get his account banned, or will it just boost his views?

    I seriously doubt that youtube will understand when they see my video is for marketing, they dont really care. I have sent in a claim with them tho.

    I used youtube for traffic to my websites. worked for damn near a year. thats why i quit my job.

    So if you were making 9k a month from online work, and 2k a month at a dead end retail job, you wouldnt quit your retail job?

    I had more than 1 site, about 7 total. and each site had about 3 vids associated with it. this guy got them all taken down.

    If you were making 9 Gs a month hopefully you kept enough back to keep you going for another month or two -- stop being scared and worried (and getting in your own way) and do it again with some tweaks. Rolling with this kind of thing and adapting to it just the nature of the beast, eh?
    Best of luck to you.

    Thanks, i know what u mean. Im an odd person, and yah, i do have some to survive on, and i am still making a lil bit of money. not like i was. not even close. Unfortunatly i keep freaking out and get all panicy.

    Im just trying to figure out if theres some way i can get this dudes vids removed.
    Ive already taken steps like paying for traffic to my youtube videos , but thats a bit slow.

    And How come we have the exact same video online, same key words, he has 2k views I have 7k views, yet his video shows up first on youtube? just dont make sense

    I would try to get a new youtubeaccount or simply write youtube from another email they dont know of. Tell them that youre the owner of the videos and that your account wasnt infringing copyright.
    If that doesnt help I would take legal actions. You should have some money left... I wouldnt let go this bastard with this because if you start again he will earn your work again.
    I think when youtube gets message from lawyer they will look into the case. Maybe you can even demand compensation because youtube deleted your vids? But I dont think that you have the right to host videos there and youtube wouldnt be in charge. But who knows... Ask a lawyer about that.

    I do have more youtube accounts, but its like My Old Video Is Now My competition! Gah!
    And as for a lawyer? Uhm, i do have enough money to hopefully last me through this but i cant be spending it on a lawyer. i mean. bah.

    Also Get This.

    My youtube account and gmail account associated with said youtube account were suspended the same day.

    Youtube wont give me any info about anything unless i email them from the account i signed up with, WHICH IS THE SAME ACCOUNT in question.

    .... im sorry, but thats dumb. they wont take just my username and password

    Falsley claiming copyright on a youtube video is illegal.
    If the whole video was really created by yourself, you can make a counter-claim.

    Here's some information about that:
    The video should be yours again after a few days, unless the guy files an action seeking a court order, which he probably won't.

    Good luck, and keep us updated.

    You said 9K a month. So what will a lawyer cost?
    Again its a game of looking at the two ways. You could pay a lawyer and maybe get your incomesource back or you spare your money and can live with this money some more weeks. And you have to build your income from the scratch.

    So whats the best choice?
