    Today I found one of my articles has been stolen by somone on Youtube, once again. It used to get about 1000 page views a day and now it is down to about 50. The Youtube video already has 200,000 views. I already filed with Google to have it removed but I am wondering if it is possible to find other articles that have been stolen by Youtube. (I found this one just because a person let me know he had seen it, and it contained the same information in my article.)
    Youtube videos often outrank our articles.Some searchers go directly to that site and do not even search on Google. Any ideas what to do about it?

      I had the same in 2018 with two hubs and I communicated directly with Youtube. Result was that the videos are gone. It was someone from Ha Noi. I found them by searching the title of the hub (between quotation marks) on google. This fellow had copied lots of hubs from Pethelpful. Specially dogs and cats.

        I just did that, using the title as you suggested. I found another for the same article and he had over 100,000 views. The article still has the snippet but now I think I know why I have lost so many views. (Not sure if I would have had many of those 300,000 plus, but at least some of them!)
        The latest thief I found was All About Animal. It looks like there are a lot of stolen articles from Pethelpful on his site but I cannot go through them all.

      I have had the same experience. You just have to do searches on YouTube using keyword phrases that are related to your article.

      I have a reminder in my calendar to check once a month.

      YouTube is good about acting quickly to delete the offending videos.

        Thanks. I think I am going to have to waste one day a month just checking for thieves at Youtube using the keyword method you suggest. Too bad I cannot send them a bill for all of my wasted time!!!

    How did you find it? It happened to me too because I found it embedded in an article that was also a ripped version of my work. Otherwise, I would have never known.

      I would not have found it had not one of my readers pointed out that the words I had written were the same as a Youtube video he had already seen! I found one other because it was ranking higher than my article in Google search. Very disappointing.
      I continued to search and found another copy of the same hub. I reported it to Google and it was taken down but now the plagiarist has written a letter to Google so that it is put back up again. His video is original, only my words are used. I guess they do not know about the concept of plagiarism everywhere.
      You and I both have a lot of articles. I do not know how I am going to go through and find the copies using the method Promisem suggests.

    I read somewhere that one has to complain in Google DMCA though I am not aware of the procedure.

      It is pretty straightforward, all through Youtube, however when the complaint is accepted they give your name and email address to the person who originally stole your work.
      Then the plagiarist can send you email telling you how it was all a mistake, can you take the copyright claim off please?
      I told the last person who asked me this that I had lost about $1600 from this hub since it had been copied. I would be glad to send her more info after I received a check. No more contact. Imagine that?
