Someone on YouTube has one of my videos up on their YouTube Channel.

1. Is this legal?
2. Is there anything I can do about it?

That is ridiculous to hear, and they are ranking higher, weird indeed.

Seriously? This is beyond ridiculous! I hope that YouTube takes it down! So sorry this happened to you!

Seriously! I did an incognito search for the keyword in quotes to see what came up. And HIS video was one spot ahead of mine! I mean really?! It's my stinkin' video. How is his ranking higher?

Anyway, it's my best video. I get WA referrals from it pretty much on a daily basis. It's the only video of mine that works that well, so you can imagine how unhappy I am. He could potentially be stealing traffic from me, with my own video.

Ugh.

I think if I had a WA video and a WA guy stole it, I would be talking to him right here. I wonder what Kyle would have to say?

I have had the same thing happen to me a couple of years ago! If you contact youtube they will take the video down, or they certainly did with me!

Typically, no it is not legal. You can file a complaint with YouTube and they will force the user to take it down.
