True Story... (@Chitown )

A) Random guy steals my audio-book and posts it on YouTube.

B) My company files copyright complaint.

C) YouTube terminates content and user's channel.

D) The IP thief messages me and asks that I rescind my copyright complaint. He wants to continue stealing other people's IP, but gives me assurances that he'll no longer steal mine. Then throws in another argument of his... "I'm losing subscribers."

E) I respond by telling the guy that STEALING is not a business model. And I don't trust thieves.

The best part is F...

F) I close with a short and sweet profanity which I won't mention here.

Kudos to Youtube for coming in although they aren't the best masters to pay dues to in terms of platform usage.
But wait...if he plans to steal more IP, shouldn't you report him and use the email as a proof for the authorities? It's like having a message from a murderer himself that he is going to murder more people, only that he will not murder you. :devil:

I don't know how is going to get dough by 'stealing' and putting them up from youtube. It seems he is relying solely on the platform for the ads dough or patreon. It's not very much if that is his game...so I dunno why is he keeping with it.

If he's gonna do this shit again towards other people who have spend blood and sweat, he better get busted again. And shut off real time.

But congrats, @MJ DeMarco ! On the bright side, if your book has gotten so popular to be deemed of EXTREME value to be bought, shared and even stolen, it's a winner.

The guy bounced back with a ridiculous claim that my company doesn't own the copyright, and I'm just making it up.

In other words, he should be able to steal intellectual property as long as the real owner doesn't find out.

Geez, some people are worthless pieces of shit.

Is he located in the US? You should teach him a lesson and start some legal proceedings. Just paperwork him to death.
