What a guy. He's really dragging this out.
both are my project. The 2nd video is my current project a.k.a. the sequel of the game that he is ripping offWhich one of those is your actual project?
Have to tell you that I don't think any of us here can do anything for you. At least we are aware, but I don't think anyone is able to send him a link with a virus that can wipe out his computer. Or is there...?
Have you consulted with a lawyer?
Lol the sad thing is "I did report it" but youtube ain't doing anything about the video. Whether the video will be taken down or not, as long people know that I'm the game developer of it.The good news in that the video doesn't look like it's got many views (16?) since he has only 3 subscribers too. It's also great that everything else already got taken down.
You can report this video to YouTube if you have the original video. (There is a report button on the "...", which is the far-left icon.)
You can report "Hateful or abusive content", then either "Bullying" or "Abusing vulnerable individuals".
You can report a second time for "Infringes my rights". "Invades my privacy", "Infringes my copyright".
I would keep creating awareness and reporting it to admins on any site he tries to upload the game too.
It's a pain what's he still doing, but it actually is good overall for you because this awareness will prevent him being able to upload the game here or on any other popular forum, and he can get ban if he shows up.
So I don't think, hopefully, you have to worry about this spreading. Try not to let this guy bother you, I mean this is your game, not his.
I would try what you are thinking and pay no attention to him, see if that's enough for this to stop, but of course, keep providing evidence against the guy.
it will be a free game, then again I'm having second thoughts on not releasing it. But instead make a youtube video of it in episodical format.so long as people know that you are the developer that is all that matters, this is why facebook sucks, its full of jealous people wanting to steal. Do u have plans to make the game commercial or is it free game.
Mod note: After debate, we approved the previous reply. We debated it, since it is both necroing and hijacking. However, while we can't do anything to stop this person, we felt if may be beneficial since this person is out there and still harassing game developers and that perhaps being aware of his presence in communities might help someone out in the long run.
Hello jweav8705. What country are you in?I did take 2 semesters worth of business law, but it's not my specialty so I can't remember; isn't there very specific legal actions you need to take in order to hold a copyright, even for intellectual property?
Does OP honestly have a legal argument?
There isn’t a register of copyright works in the UK.
You automatically get copyright protection when you create:
You can mark your work with the copyright symbol (©), your name and the year of creation. Whether you mark the work or not doesn’t affect the level of protection you have.

The conversation is still relevant and it's possible that the responsible parties may still be out there, otherwise this matter would have been closed by the mods. But you do have a point.You realize you're in a thread that's three years old, addressing a person who hasn't logged on in three years?
I think you are unlikely to get a response.

As for the video, it has either been removed or is not available where you are located. I don't have time to check on the former scenario, though.
