The stealing doesn't stop

I'm incredibly pissed of right now. Every few months when I'm looking up my video "FAKE manga & drama cd" on youtube (just to make sure it didn't get stolen and reposted again), I'll find tons of stolen versions where people just copied my video, the title and even the personal description! Each time, I'm flagging the videos and they always get taken down by Youtube, but it's so much trouble and frustration for me. Now I looked it up again and look what I found:

Original video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GfDfvU-0Jw&index=4&list=PLriq3JpcwUwXNgf-fm2aI3Fw4IPsweUa_

Thief - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kx2Jpra8_Hg

Title Thief - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYu2Afz4Qyc

Of course I flagged them all AGAIN (at least the first three ones, the other three just stole my title and description - for whatever reason - so I'm not sure if I can flag them) but I'm so incredibly pissed of right now! I might just take my video down because of all this frustration. >:(

Unfortunately youtube is full of thief's, no matter how much you try they always seem one step ahead. Very frustrating.

Also torquay? If it's the torquay I'm thinking of hello from Plymouth!

I hate thieves! I know I should probably be more relaxed about the whole matter but it really upsets me. Why do people do that, anyways?

Southern England? Yes that's it! :D I'm working here for 3 weeks to improve my English ^_^
That's funny, my sister was in Plymouth as an exchange student a few years ago. :D

I imagine because it's easier than taking time to create it yourself. Besides you could look at it positively by thinking your works good enough to steal!

Are you enjoying it there? haven't been there for a while. Felt a bit sad when I was there last as to recession hit Torquay hard. Small world! Hope your sister enjoyed Plymouth, it's a lovely city, but I suppose I'm biased!

Some people are so messed up... How can they be proud of something they didn't create? I'll never understand that.

It's great here! I'm in a very nice guest family together with another girl from Germany (and one from Argentinia) and we're going sightseeing a lot. I've never been to Plymouth but I'll see at least a part of it next weekend because we want to go horseriding in northern Dartmoor and therefore have to transfer to another bus in Plymouth. My sister liked it a lot there, though.

Some people are just like that I'm afraid. A few years ago a girl tried to steal my coursework and say it was her own, luckily I'd already handed it in to the teacher, else I could've been the one screwed over!

Hope you enjoy it, Dartmoor's lovely. Hope you don't have to stop in Bretonside bus station...it's pretty skanky there...

Phew! You were lucky that time. I hope the girl got what she deserved for trying to steal your work!

We're still trying to work out a way to get there, actually :'D I thought it would be easier to go to Dartmoor! I mean, we can't be the only ones who want to go there... Of course we could rent a car to get there, I have a driver's license since last year, but I'm not very practiced and I find the confusing English traffic too intimidating. ;o

GRRRRRRR! LEMME AT 'EM!

How can people think they can get away with such blatant theft?

(I still adore your vid though!)

I don't get it either. It's so messed up. I hope Youtube will delete "their" videos quickly.

But thank you! ^-^ I must admit I still like it too... So I will probably not take it down, on second thought.

I hope you leave it up, because despite the thieves, there are a lot of people who love your vid, it shows from the number of hits it's had.

Thanks for your support :')
Yes I think I'll leave it up. I'd feel bad if I took it down.

Oh, I just noticed the first three stolen videos got taken down! :) Now I only have to deal with the other three...
