    You can't really stop people from flagging or reporting the vid otherwise you make it private. Just enjoy the traffic while it last. When it's gone, then steal vids again and reupload. That's how it normally goes.

    Your asking a question like...
    I just stole a car...The cops arent chasing me yet but just in case they try to how would i be able to keep this car?


    If you stole it...Their bound to take it away...Blackhat doesnt mean stealing.

    Like BabyMonster said, enjoy the traffic while it lasts.

    I know they will probably remove it eventually but em stealing a video issss blackhat it's sort of the definition of it eventhough I know they are going to probably take it down morally I see nothing wrong with taken videos. and the original video i took it from only has like 300 views so they weren't going to make any money off it anyway. Also I don't uniuify my videos because I don't know how . If anyone had a solution I would be glad to here it.

    Don't think there is anything you can do to stop anyone from claiming it as there own or flagging it. Enjoy the traffic while it lasts and depending on the popularity and competion of the topic it could last a very long time. ;)

    But it's still profit these people can be making. You're profiting off of their video, which I find really rude. But hey, whatever floats your boat I guess.

    Look dude I know you're new here but this is blackhatworld where we do "blackhat" things for money so be please take your judgemental b/s to the warrior forum. Also i don't steal videos in my same niche the video didn't even have links in it and the titles are totally different so I'm not competing with so i have not taken anything away from them at all. Plus I did seo work added favs and made the video poplular myself not because of them it actually has like 250 dislikes so next time you get ready to call someone rude at least know the facts first.

    I'm sorry. I'm still quite new and I'm learning yet.

    How much trouble could you get into if the owner of said video where to find out?

    sorry about that I just hate when people past judgement and I don't really have the means to make the hundreds of videos i need. And as far the video you cant really get in any trouble they could ban your account but only if you do it twice.
