    Hi everybody,

    is there anything it can be done, when the own video on youtube got stolen and was reuploaded by another person?

    Hope someone can give me a helpful advice.

    Thanks in advance.

    nope not really. Just move on and keep working. You will spend more time and effort in trying to get the video down. In that time you could have done another one and put it live.

    Now if the video is on something that you have copyright and patent the get in touch with your lawyer and go after them. If not just move one.

    OK, people who have said you can't do anything about it don't know shit. I don't mean to offend them but there was really no point to misleading the OP when you have no idea of what you are talking about.

    You can do a lot about it.

    1) You can submit a complian to youtube, takes 5 mins and they take down the video within 48-72 hours. You can also submit dozens of videos in one form.

    2) If the video was uploaded elsewhere or if you cannot get youtube to take it down, I offer a service here for this purpose. PM me if interested.

    A word of advice: compare your video content vs effort, time and cost of taking them down. Easiest is to submit a complain to youtube, if that doesn't work then you may want to follow the other steps above or JUST move on.

    Hope this helps.

    build some backlinks to your video so that it comes up above the guy that stole it.
