    I am a long time member here who needs a little help from my fellow BHWers. There's a youtube user that has literally copied 20-30 of my videos, titles, tags and descriptions on youtube. I was hoping fellow members here can flag a recent video he has copied from me. He doesnt even have the decency to change the title of my videos. PLEASE HELP ME BY FLAGGING HIM DOWN.

    The video is here:

    youtube. com/watch?v=tge46XsJ51U (Just eliminate the space between youtube. and com to find this lowlife copycat)

    Any help by flagging this video will be appreciated. The best way to do this is to sign into your youtube account and not just to thumbs down him but to flag video option and flag as spam then submit it to youtube for review. Please post a message here to let me know if you have successfully flagged this A-HOLE. If enough users flag his video this way it will be taken down. I will let members know if this is successful.

    If I was you I would not post his YT video link because in a way I now know who you are on YT.

    From what I know people copy stuff word to word here on BHW (especially newbies) so the chances of your video replicating 1000 times is much more now.

    Hope you understand what I am saying ;)

    This is very true. Posting that link tells others there is/might be something to make money in. To be honest I never even heard of Mobile Cash Empire so I have just started doing some quick research. Maube its very new as there doesnt seem to be much viewing going on on Youtube. To be honest flagging etc isnt worth it. Anyone with a few Youtube tools and accounts can upload them quicker than you can flag them down. Just try and beat them on keywords/content/traffic etc.

    Why would fellow BHW ers want to copy my video also?? Youtube has a way of knowing when a video is copied word for word. He has been trying to copy my success to no avail. He gets very little views doing this. I'm just fed up with this guy because I just checked his channel and he literally has copied DOZENS of my video.

    You can report the guy and the videos will be deleted and if this is his first time doing this he will get a warning, if the guy has been reported before his account will be banned

    Because many bhw members are just a leechers from different forums. Also you dont have to flag the video, because he will reupload it for 20 sek. The only one way is to outrank him. Anyway i already flagged the video.

    If the videos are 100% original content created by you, then what stopped you from watermarking the hell out of them with your URL/channel? you can use the watermarks in such a way that they help brand your videos, and by not making them static (ie. same position throughout the video) you can make sure the copycat will unknowingly promote you. You can also add a watermark randomly in the middle of videos. Also, the constant mention of your brand/URL/channel helps.

    as already said use waermarks and dynamic watermarks the ones that appear after a certain time so that user can't delete them too.

    Not real info to answer your question.

    Edit: The same A-Hole re-upped the video 5 more times on 5 different channels. Guess what? I submitted 5 more complaints to those channel and guess what? ALL 5 ADS WERE REMOVED ASAP!
