Does it seem like the more content you publish, the more content gets stolen?
“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. Sure, that’s true. If you weren’t doing a great job providing interesting, popular content no one would bother stealing it.
If you aren’t trying to earn income from your original content, or even just trying to re-coup the costs of providing the content you might not care. But, the fact is, many pirates steal high-quality, popular content in order to monetize it on streaming videos websites like YouTube – they make money from your creative, hard work. Money which, by all rights, should go to you.
And to make matters worse, you’ve probably already discovered that as quick as you send in those Takedown Notifications, more infringements pop up. It’s viral. Pirates are not original thinkers, they’re thieves. And there is no honor among thieves. In fact, they steal stolen content from each other. As soon as they see that someone is getting good views, they jump in and steal it – from you and from each other. It’s really hard to keep up with and the time you spend trying to keep up with it could be better spent creating new content, spending time with your loved ones or pursuing a hobby.
STOP WORKING FOR THE PIRATES!
