I don't even know where to f*cking start. Long story short, there's been a french youtuber that has been stealing my youtube videos word for word, but just doing them in french. This is actually something I've known about for a couple years but I didn't do anything about it because I didn't think that I could. I initially found out about the situation awhile ago when a couple french viewers tweeted at me saying there's this french guy copying your videos and at first, I was f*cking hyped because I was like, oh maybe this is a good thing. Plot twist, it's not. But what I didn't realize was that he was copying my videos word for word, shot by shot, and oh, not giving me any credit. Let me show you what I mean. So original of you. You don't have to know french to see how bad he's copying me. Wow, even the words. Wow, great footage of a door, you know, it kinda looks like my door. Looks a little bit similar. Except I had better editing. Dude. Oh, a knife, what a sharp idea. And that's not even all of it. That's just a little portion of what he's been doing. From my understanding, he stole 7 of my video ideas and then he also stole other videos from other YouTubers including Marcus Butler and my good buddy Andrew Quo. Now, I actually just showed you guys his videos without asking for his permission which is ironic because I'm mad at him for doing kinda the same thing but I needed to show you guys the video side by side to prove my point. I'm not monetizing this video, I just want to get the word out because there is a huge difference between being inspired by other YouTubers and just flat out stealing their content. When I first found out about this guy, I messaged him on facebook, that didn't really work out so I messaged him on Twitter and that didn't really work out either. It's just really hard to communicate. He was really slow at responding, he ignored a lot of my messages, it was not a good time. Almost a year passes by and I was finally able to get the link to my youtube channel in the description of some of his videos and at that point, I was just happy to finally get some f*cking credit. Because prior to that, I was getting no acknowledgment for all the videos he was stealing. So the sh*tty part about this is, I don't understand french, like, at all. The most I can say is, bonjour and that's pretty much it so there's this huge language barrier separating us. So fast forward to right now, a crazy thing happened where this french forum found out about the situation and decided they were going to do something about it. The next thing I know, the video thief is trending number 1 on Twitter in France. Soon after, buzzfeed, huffington post, slate, and a bunch of other french websites started to post about it. Even some of the biggest YouTubers in France we're even rallying for my support. So, you might be wondering, Motoki, you're putting him on blast, what does he have to say for himself? Haha, well let me tell you because this sh*t is the best part. So after receiving some hate comments on his videos, he responded trying to explain that I gave him permission to use my video ideas. Which is funny because I found out about the videos after you posted them, and usually when you ask for permission, you know, before you even make it but I'm just, f*ck me right you know what I mean? But things don't get any better because he goes on one of the biggest radio stations in France and tries to explain himself. But instead of actually apologizing, from what people have told me, he says, "I'm not good at making video ideas so I take other peoples". Wow, what a great sounding guy, you know what, all is forgiven, I can not compete with this logic. Like literally, the least you could have done was just apologize but you done f*cked that up too. It sucks because his copies have way more views than my originals. Honestly, I don't really care about the views at this point. It's just sad seeing this guy piggyback off of other peoples' hard work. I really don't know what to do at this point, but it's good that I just get it out. If this has happened to me and several others, it's probably going to happen to other people too. We can't keep letting these kind of things happen. Thank you guys so much for all the support you've been giving me, I'll see you guys soon.
