Should I feel complimented or pissed off?

Post by AstroGoat760 »

While searching out TT Scale videos on YouTube, I found that someone had copied one of my videos of the TT Scale Display that we had last year in St. Paul, MN, and had cropped and zoomed it in to make it "look different". Should I feel upset about this or should I feel complimented?

Do you have the two links, one to your layout and one for the other?

Here is the original video:


And here is the "lifted and modified" video, with no credit given:

I'd contact Youtube support, give them the exact time stamps and details and have them take down the video. But that's just me. Also it seems like everything in that video is lifted - the sound is obviously reprocessed.

Done. I shall see what YouTube has to say about this.

I think it was independently filmed.
Your video shows the chair is empty and the other video shows your wife or daughter sitting in it.

I think you should feel complimented that someone liked your TT layout (or TT scale in general) well enough to post the video. I think you should withdraw your complaint to YouTube. TT needs all the exposure it can get, especially since it appears the video was shot independently. The layout is small, and it is understandable that the two videos should look similar.

Agreed, I have withdrawn the complaint, if anything for the benefit of TT Scale.
