I NEED YOUR HELP!

MY VIDEO WAS STOLEN!
And not just by one person, but by TWO people! I really don't get why people do that. Does it make them feel better about themselves?!

Anyways - I need you to help me now. I really don't want to start a shitstorm, but I want these guys to take their (my!) video down immediately. So this is what I need you to do if you're against video theft, like me:

1. Give both videos a thumb down.
2. Flag them.
3. Write the thieves a comment on their video, or a PM, or a comment on their channel and tell them to delete the stolen material RIGHT NOW.


Here are the two videos:

(Edit: Never mind, they're all deleted now ^_^)

Sadly, there's not much more we can do right now. I really hope they'll be sensible enough to see their fault and delete my video from their channels. However, with thieves, you never know how reckless they are. (One of them even had the nerve to put her own intro into the video instead of mine! Disgusting!)

This sort of thing makes me so mad! I'm doing some work for a client right now, but I'll get on the reporting and the commenting as soon as I'm done.

I've got that darn pre-Christmas cold too. I hope we both get better soon!

Thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate it! I wish there was more we can do about it...

I've been half-sick for months now, and yesterday my immune systeme finally broke down completely. Let's just drink a lot of tea and sleep a lot, and if we're lucky, the cold will be gone by Christmas! :)

Okay I went an posted scolding comments on the first two videos, and I see the third one has been removed. I haven't reported them yet, though because I have to click one of YouTube's set list of reasons why I'm reporting it and they are
Sexual content
Violent or repulsive content
Hateful or abusive content
Harmful dangerous acts
Child abuse
Spam or misleading
Infringes my rights
Captions report (CVAA)

Which one applies? Spam or misleading? What I really want is a 'stolen content' button to click.

Thanks a lot! You're a real friend! <3

Oh, one of them has already been removed? That's great news! I hope the other two will be deleted soon, as well. :)

Well that sucks, back in the day there was just a simple "Report" button. Why does Youtube always have to change their settings?! -.-
I simply clicked "Infringes my rights", but for you, I don't know which would be the right one... Yeah maybe Spam or misleading. But I really don't know either :/

I'm back. I left a second comment on the TeddyLovesAnime one and reported both of them for fraud. I hate thieves!

Yay! I love you! ^_^
I'm writing some more comments right now, too. I also wrote them PMs and comments on their channels. I hope we intimidate them enough to take the videos down!

WHOO HOO!! Victory!

I am essentially a peace-loving person, but some things are worth fighting for and I will always stand up and fight against people who think it's okay to steal the results of another person's creative effort. I am so, SO against that kind of thing.
