I ordered a couple of gigs from a Seller to create 2D Whiteboard animation videos. The script, VO, and logo are mine. I paid for them. The seller delivered the videos and I must admit the quality is more than I expected.
Before uploading these videos (I have an uploading plan) to my Youtube Channel, I just made a search for my keyword on Youtube to look for the competition. I found a Whiteboard animation video with an exact match of my Keyword.
I played the video and to utter surprise, I found that it is my video which I ordered it through Fiverr.
I approached the Seller and he accepted that it is his channel and he posted them as a portfolio. I told him that how can he post my video (for which I paid) on his channel even before I posted it on my channel and without my permission. I told him that those videos are useless for me as I cannot use them due to duplicate content issues.
The seller promised to delete the videos but he didn’t delete them the last time I checked his channel. I approached Fiverr support to report the Seller but unfortunately, there is NO action from Fiverr. I’m planning to report the videos to Youtube for Copyright infringement but I’m not sure whether it will help me.
Please help me if anyone of you faced such a problem and how you approached it.
