I have someone who is publicly sharing my unlisted videos 1 Recommended Answer 2 Replies 2 Upvotes

Hi, 

I make some videos that are unlisted and I share the links with certain people. I am unable to set them to Private as it turns into a nightmare trying to add people... anyway .. someone has put all my videos including my unlisted ones on to a public playlist. 

I can not get hold of them to remove them ... I looked for a way to ban the person from my channel and I can only find block which doesn't stop them from having access to my videos

Is there anything I can actually do here? I have looked at terms and policies .. I have tried reporting the playlist but that doesn't let me say why I am reporting it so I don't think that will do much good either. 

This seems to be no way to get hold of a user and I don't want to go straight to the reporting copyright as I would first like to politely ask them to simply make their playlist private.

Thank you for any advice offered :) 

Cheers
Sam

"If there are no way to contact the uploader and you are the copyright owner, you can submit a counter notification on the video. "

That is incorrect information as the op talks about it being in a playlist not that it is uploaded on the other channel also they talked about filing a copyright claim not that one was filed against them:
 "I have tried reporting the playlist but that doesn't let me say why I am reporting it so I don't think that will do much good either. "

You can't file a copyright claim against a video in a playlist as all a playlist is is a collection of links to the videos. If you click on the video in the playlist it should take you to your own channel. Now if it takes you to their channel then you may have grounds for a copyright claim.

They are breaking no rules having your video in their playlist, even if it is unlisted as all that does is stop it showing in search results. The only way to stop it being seen by those you do not want to see it is to make it private.
