Yo team,
I wasn't sure if this was the right place to go but when in doubt, head for the pit!
Basically my band recorded an E.P. last year at a studio in Mansfield and posted a video for our song Breathe on youtube (It's in my sig)
Today I have been informed by someone that another youtube user has stolen my lyrics and posted a song claiming to have been written by him! Even worse, it's the sh*test thing I've heard in my life!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ow-xA5J3Jow
Here is the link for his video and click my sig to hear mine.
The songs are different but the lyrics are exactly the same, word for word.
Any ideas on what I should do?
Also, has anyone else had experiences with a similar problem?
I'm pretty annoyed about it.
I wouldn't have minded at all if he stated it was a cover or something...

Hey, I remember listening to your song ages back. I dunno what you can do idf it's not copyrighted, but I suggest you ask about this in Bandleading, specifically ask the mod axemanchris. He has years of experience and he knows his shit. Just make a thread over there and mention his name in it. Seriously, if anybody on UG can help, he can.
My name is Danny. Call me that.

Its funny how out of time and crummy his voice sounds.
But yea just laugh at him, it sounds awful, no one believes him.
#15
Why care? His version is shockingly bad, the only reason you should be upset is the sheer degradation of your song he has brought.

Seriously though, I'd be pissed if someone stole one of my songs. Which is why I don't ever tell anyone I don't know how to play any of them.

OH MY GOD I'M DYING LAUGHING.

Next time, copyright. It's not like it's a great deal of effort - you literally just put a C with a circle round it at the bottom.

*rolls eyes*

I guess you could argue over upload dates? ^.^

If you need someone to talk to, I'm usually about so drop me a pm or swing by the Hugging Thread.

Haha true but still... I just don't want anyone thinking he had any part in those lyrics!

And whatever it is he plays it is not anything like what I play!!! He just wrote some shit chords and used my lyrics!

I wouldn't be surpised if TS did the bad version so he could promote the good version to all of us.

If not, that's awful and that guy is an idiot.

I told him to stop singing before I rip my ears off. His version sucks and wont be listen to much anyways.. Also, great song even though its not my style.

*Steals song* :P

No but seriously nice song,

I actually feel kinda sorry for the guy now.
He obviously can't sing, keep a beat or even strum tightly. He probably just wanted to make friends.

lyrics please, i absolutely loved the song and want to sing along!

You gave him the lyrics, and he still dared to use them?



Maybe he's trolling?


He also asked for the lyrics of an Owl City song.

Looks like he's got a few other songs "he wrote"

See if you can take it up with youtube. I'm not exactly sure how you go about "reporting" a video.

Wow. That's so out of time it's a bit painful

This is exactly what I thought, you have to love cynicism.

Well, sue him for palagriaism (spelling?!).

Edit: After listening to the actual "rip-off", I seem to agree with the above poster.
