Copying My Stuff!

Postby Kelly Harris » June 24th, 2015, 9:43 am

I'm not sure how to handle this. I came across this video the other day,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjjTPqgs7pk

which is blatantly copied from my video.

I'm also not sure how I feel about it. It's nice to know that it was good enough that he felt the need to copy it but it also pi**es me off that he slapped his name over top, called it his own and gave me no recognition. So much more went into my video than most people realize. Yes it was created to draw traffic to my site, to help people with their own loss, but it was also created shortly after I lost my coonhound Shelby. It was a difficult time for me and making this video was kind of a therapy, it means so much more to me than just a video.

Kelly I haven't had the need to handle anything like this so I am just spouting off right not.

He has some 28,000 views so maybe you can use that to your advantage. Send him a note stating this is your work and should he decide to keep using it he MUST put your web info along with any links to your site and give the credit to you otherwise your law firm of "Dewey Killem & Howe" will be contacting him.

He has already gotten lots of folks commending him on the great work.

Other than that, I got nothin, sorry.

I don't know aboooot your Can-Eh-dian laws up there, but I would find an online "cease and desist" to send (if you can determine the right place to send it.) I would also leave a comment with a link to your video and explanation for all to see. Maybe they will take it down. You can also make a complaint to YouTube- under the video is a menu of "Add to - Share - More"- click on more and then "Report".

Good luck! That's pretty crappy!

Oh, also- at the very bottom of every YouTube page is a link to "copyright" with advice, troubleshooting, etc.

Where did The Rainbow Bridge come from? Who owns The Rainbow Bridge? Did you do the pictures, music and wording?

I'd say he is dead on using your video. Unless all of it came from you ... I don't know the legal stuff enough to suggest anything.

On the first slide can you see your watermark in the upper left corner?!? It's very light, but that is what it looks like to me. I agree with contacting him.

Thanks for looking Jess. I thought that was what I was seeing...it was very light, but I knew Kelly would know it right away.
