    Hi fellows.

    I have up-loaded a few videos in youtube which other guys tried to steal and re-upload my videos.
    What do you guys try to do to prevent or make it harder for such guys to do so? I am upset because those guys thieved not only the video but the exact contents and descriptions I used in my videos and re-uploaded them in YT once again!

    Thanks.

    Always use TON of watermarks on your video. Make them cover the whole video, but transparent enough so the video is still watchable. The only thing you can do is flag the videos and hope to get them removed.

    I do not see why you are so bothered, some of my best videos are ones that I have worked hard at to download. It is not an easy job searching YouTube for good videos to download, it takes skill and hard work.

    hehe lol, yeah it takes skill and time to find a good video which you can download :D
    once a guy ripped my video and copied the whole desc. with my link and ranked on first page :D i was so happy :D :p

    to OP, please watermark the whole video before uploading. You're doing IM so u shouldn't be bothered by these small things. See the bright side that the guy liked your video and desc. so much that he ripped it all :D :p

    I don't know about using a ton of watermarks but one or maybe two might work. Try to make the fact that they are copying them work for you.

    Personally since I watermark my videos I LOVE it when someone copies them as long as they leave the watermark.

    Thanks, but is there any real example about what you are saying? You mean I change the possition of the watermarks as well?

    So do I needto flag them? (so what if they try to do the same for my video even if it is mine and legitimate?) Isn't it better to use the copyright complaint?

    Lol, So you have capturd the video of others? didn't the videos get any watermark or so? If I was the owner of the vvideos, I would go for an copyright complaint or tried to flag you, hehe!

    Why he used your lnik as well or it was watermarked in your video?!!

    I amwondering what kind of watermarking is the best? And of course do I need to use just my link in the watermark or there is another passenger/pic which I can use with it if you know what I mean?

    yeah, actually he did copy my link given in the description. :p

    Watermark the video with your link, unless you're driving traffic to your site whose logo is well known by people. I mostly add link in the video, if someone doesn't see the link from your description , he'll see it from the video itself. :)

    To be honest, if the vids are good, I do not care about watermarks, as long as I get my affiliate link in the description, I do not care. I also do not get why people are so bothered about others copying their videos. People have actually copied my videos before, and it does not interest me in the slightest.
