    I've seen people doing this it's pretty lame imo using someone else's video as a crutch. But hey somehow they're making money off it so good for them. As for fair use do you really think they went and asked everyone person who's video they reacted to for permission? I highly doubt they asked and it could come crashing down on them eventually.

    Reaction video are one of the fastest going viral video. The reason that real video owner doesn't flag the video is because reaction video increases their popularity too.

    ^ this, but getting to the point. YouTubers are not equal, if you stole enough no one will care in most cases. Why? Because parthership with big networks does miracles. Also not all copyrighted videos get removed, competitors just flag your stuff and if you lose a dispute they will just put their ads on your videos.

    Edit: You don't even have to lose a dispute, flagged videos in most cases instanly show original owner ads and not yours.
