Someone is stealing deliveries from my page/orders or buyers' YouTube channels


#1

I have just found some of the videos I sold to different buyers on one person’s YouTube channel. They even had my makeup gig presentation video on their channel!



Is there any possibility for someone to hack their way into my delivered orders and get the videos? Because I have only found on YouTube very few of the videos I’ve ever sold and this person gathered more, so I don’t know how he/she could have done that without somehow getting access to my delivered orders here, on Fiverr.



This isn’t necessarily a problem for me, but I don’t want my buyers to be robbed either!



Any advice?



Thank you!

Well the videos in my samples are lower quality, so not the exact same work I give my buyers, but the watermark idea is brilliant!



Thank you so much! :slight_smile:

Ok, I think they only stole videos that I have samples for, so they probably had some kind of software for downloading the videos from the site. Should I just stop making my work samples available? :frowning: I know that samples usually help us grow sales… I’m very upset about this.



Everyone else should be very careful about this. If the samples can be downloaded, then anyone can steal what our buyers pay money for. That is NOT cool.



I hope a Fiverr admin can see this. I know nothing about programming, but maybe there is a way to make the videos in the samples 100% not downloadable?

You could also flag the video as your private work. Youtube is very… very strict now with copyright. It will probably be down within 3 days and the user will get a warn/ban.

Now that has me thinking…

There’s many ways to download videos, especially FROM youtube. So if your user uploaded it TO youtube, it’s very very easy to download it, and re-upload it on youtube.

Reply to @caiterz: No, they definitely downloaded the videos from Fiverr, because they are all videos that I had samples for, even my gig video description was on their account.

Reply to @bigbadbilly: I just hesitated doing that from the start because I give up any rights over my videos once I sell them, so my buyers can do whatever they want with them and I thought it might be a buyer. But then I checked out more of them and even saw my gig description video… I’ll see what I can do.



Flagging the video for a copyright issue is a pretty complicated process. Lots of things to prove… and I’m afraid that if my buyers have the same content on YouTube, it might be removed for them as well since I mark it as mine. :frowning:

Reply to @arnevb: I left her a comment on her channel and on every one of the videos that were stolen from my gig. I gave her time until tomorrow to remove them. If she doesn’t, I’ll report her. And she also stole from another makeup lady in here. I’m going to look for her to let her know as well.



Thank you for the support, Arnevb! :slight_smile:
