    YouTube Thieves

    I watch a lot of youtube videos from the group here and sure have noticed a bunch of stolen content lately. Brand new names with 5 or 6 videos uploaded same day, often with the original posters names and tags still on the videos.

    Where is a good place to notify the owners of the vids when you stumble across one, and can you notify youtube directly even if it is not your channel?

    It's pretty annoying. It makes finding new content to watch more difficult.

    I typically just post on the real posters video.

    Does YouTube ever take any of these crooks down?

    I made post about this same thing not long ago. I contact the original poster directly through youtube. They have to take care of getting the channel taken down.
