    So if you know how to do something in Windows that no one else has made a video on (I know – one in a million but let's say you do) and you're just starting out like me, are you just at the mercy of other people making the same video once your video gets out there? I'm pretty new to all this and wondering if it's a waste of time to do as pretty much any how-to video gets done and redone by the larger youutbers with much bigger audiences. Serious question as I do have something good but afraid if I put it out there, it will just get re-made by a much larger youtuber and mine would get buried. Any suggestions?

    how to add the tshirt store to my youtube channel? ( Ive got one with 50 k sub)

  3. FreeScoopTV says

    Great stuff, i can protect my original videos now, a lot of people were stealing it

  4. DuncyDragon says

    But what about small content creators. If a bigger youtuber has re uploaded their content then they have only one way to copyright them. And even after that the big guy will have it repealed.

  5. amilcar teck says

    Dude you should be happy people uploading your videos. U getting popular. Why claim a copyright when in the video u have your signiture or something people only do that cas they loved your video.

  6. L1keABeast says

    Ive been putting a lot of effort on my videos but it is not how i expect

  7. Kenraalin pelivideot says

    I hope that you can't reupload some other creators content to unauthorized channel where is right amount of subscribers and claim original creators content as your own.

  8. Freakin' Reviews says

    Just ran the tool for the first time and was surprised to see dozens of channels that took my content and reuploaded it, some of them monetized. I hope YouTube rolls this out to smaller channels soon, too.

  9. Bipolar Corner says

    4 minute video with a 1 minute intro and 2.5 mins before you got to the point. You are killing me. LOL

  10. Backyard Art says

    How do you find out if someone copied and reuploaded one of your videos, if YouTube's algorythm doesn't look for it and tells you? Many of us are in small niches, which structurally can't have or very rarely will have +100,000 subs. Does that mean we are F***up forever?

  11. VinGin says

    one thing that I find missing, is information about copyright on youtube. you know, "fair use" etc. Now I avoid using any type of copyright music, I dont show clips, images or music from movies, in my videos, or thumbnails. but it seems to me that A LOT of youtubers seem to be doing just that.. Peter McKinnon, Casey Neistat, Pewdiepie etc. and most cases, I doubt they checked if they could use images. I make a lot of videos about the tv-show cobra kai, and I dont show images even as thumbnails because I just dont think I have the right. Fair use doesnt apply. any thoughts, or links on a good video on the topic?

  12. العبيدي Q-R-J says

    If some 1 make a video and i do a video that maby luck like simeler to both of , what will happen?

  13. miAim The Improvised Line says

    so many great features that are REAL IMPROVEMENTS but always need 100,000 subs. We are slowly (yes s-l-o-w-l-y) growing despite following all the advice from Derral and YouTube Creators and would like to take advantage of some more of them.. if only we could reach 1,000 or 100,000 subs… can some of these tools be made available to those of us with a track record of regular uploads like us.

  14. Pufa Channel says

    Im wondering if i go to google, and search a photo for a vid, and theres one image with someone in it, i download the photo but only use that persons face and put it somewhere in my video.. like.. its only his face, and its small.. is it okay to do that? Yes, i dont know if it has copyright or not, but i dont use the entire photo…

  15. Gayathri Pillai says

    Can anyone tell me whether the original creator has the option to get the revenue instead of removing the duplicate video?

  16. Birdy Official says

    Does "Copyright Match Tool" work? I submitted a removal request of some videos on 7 August but no response till date. How long does it take in removal of copyrighted videos???

  17. MrCustomConcrete says

    seems like youtube is always evolving… but then again everything is, your always giving great content, thank you
