Not that it affects the thief's status as... well, a thief, but it's a "she" by that name. Nadia.

I'd be curious about what her total "click" revenue is.

I have a good video from my old dashcam, I should post it and see if this person puts it in one of their videos.

What I found ludicrous was they claimed they got it from reddit, like that was OK to do.

I found my video on reddit, but it was a proper link to my YouTube channel.

This person is truly indignant with justifying why their theft is legal because I wasn't putting the video "to good use". They are adamant because I had it where it could be taken, it was "fair use" for them to profit because of "all the work put in for the compilation". They claimed they have "worked so hard" building up viewers and I am just ruining that.

The whining about me destroying their life and income is giving me a priapism.

Question(s):

Was the offending product clearly identified as a compilation of other people's work?

Was your segment attributed to you?

I used to watch a shit ton of dash cam crash videos on youtube, especially when I handled auto liability for a large insurance company. It helped keep the wheels constantly turning in my mind.

Anyway, a good portion of the compilation video makers credit the original channel with each video, and many have gotten so popular that people just send in their videos to the channel as soon as they happen. Sort of like how FailArmy constantly has content for theirs.

Obviously this person just wants quick cash without the effort.

People steal my images from my website all of the time and they spread like wildfire throughout the web. While I don't mind as much when they are being used as an example, I do have a big problem when somebody else is representing it as their work.

Here's a company in Estonia using a photo of me moving a safe as their own:

We have several of our vault door photos floating around out there. A few years ago I caught a company using one of the images to make things like cell phone covers. They wouldn't even send me one for free in exchange for using my image on them. Wink

The images I post here are protected by an .htaccess file that limits viewing to anyone clicking on it from this site. Click on the URL anywhere else, and it won't load. Of course anyone could steal the image and host in on their own site, but they cannot link to it on my hosting dime.

It's MY content he stole. He is claiming he has fair use of it because it wasn't causing me any financial harm and he could make better use of it. He claims it's his now because he slapped his url and logo over it and I'm not being fair.

My terrible attitude is destroying his livelihood.

At this point, I just enjoy being an asshole towards this thief.


That isn't what "fair use" means. But he'll just keep using that phrase because he thinks it is some sort of legal magic word.

Has to be a 25 year old skinny-jean, deck shoes wearing, bearded millennial by stealing from and then throwing around the word "fair" when he gets caught. It's what they do. They've been raised in a public school system and society with a sense of entitlement but not of right and wrong.

Keep your boot on his neck. He needs this lesson to make him a better man.

Now the asshole has filed a counter claim stating MY content was "fair use" and Google is stating I have 10 days to have an attorney file a cease and desist claim or they will reinstate the asshole's revenue.

Geez, she's got balls. (Nadezhda is a female name)

So, if you don't pony up money to secure your own litigator to get a cease & desist filed she keeps getting paid.

Would love to hear one of our own attorneys chime in on what recourse you have going forward.

Sorry you are having to endure this BS

I have a strange fascination watching these videos. Most LEOs are incredibly patient and tolerant. But, I saw one recently where an IL State Trooper just about tore the door off its hinges when the driver started spouting sovereign citizen jargon. Definitely worth watching! Big Grin
