Hello, my friends. Today I come to you with some grave news.


Background:


Some background; A YouTuber by the name of "MrDuuba2" has been successfully been posting videos of unoriginal builds on YouTube for over six months. Downloading and filming builds by Minecrafters such as evQnxa, EpicQuestz, Aurelien_Sama, and Mithrintia, he has been making direct money off of other peoples' work.


I came across his work for the first time a few days ago, and as I assumed he was just a YouTube partner hoping to produce some quality videos and, in doing so, borrowing some builds without asking. I confronted him in a comment on his video containing "Galdor's Hold," a build made by members of my own server and myself, asking him kindly to remove the video, as we didn't feel it was right for him to make money off of our build. I didn't get a response at first, and a few days later, I checked back, and my comment had been deleted. I wrote back again, this time in his own language of German, hoping maybe he would reconsider. Again, the comment was deleted.


In frustration, I contacted some of the guys from my server, as well as Block_Fortress, and we all asked him in comments on his videos to remove those that he did not create, as he never asked these people to film, and has successfully monetized each. Every comment was deleted. He then made a post on his Facebook pages taunting us, who he referred to as the "haters."


By this point I've had enough.


His Offenses:

1) Filming builds without asking permission from the owners

2) Giving no credit to the original creators other than just providing a link titled "Download"

3) Deleting comments exposing that he was not the creator, and essentially saying he built each project

4) Monetizing his videos (essentially, he is making profit off of other peoples' work)

The Builds He Has Stolen:

evQnxa's "City of Arches"

EpicQuestz's "Imperial City" SUCCESS! The video has been removed!

Mithrintia's: "Galdor's Hold" SUCCESS! The video has been removed!

Aurelien_Sama's "Eldaria"

Aurelien_Sama's "Keitaro Temple" SUCCESS! The video has been removed!

Techno's "Cerelia"


What I Want You To Do About It:


I do NOT, in ANY WAY, want you to troll him. He has disabled comments and ratings on many of his videos, and so we are unable to leave remarks. Instead, I want you to do the following:


Go to each of his videos listed above and click the "Flag" button next to the "Share" button. From there, scroll down to the "Spam" button, and then again to the "Misleading Text" option.


This way, we are not TROLLING him, but instead flagging his videos, which is the best way to have his account de-monetized or removed. He has committed crimes against the Minecraft community, and should be shut down.


Thank you for helping out, and feel free to support us on Reddit:


The MrDuuba2 Reddit Thread


His response to a private message from Katcast:

In case you're not sure: Katcast sends a message of disgust about how he is stealing builds for money, and he replies by correcting her with "*a lot of money." Sickening

iRapp.... I must inquire about a recent issue which has arisen with YOU as the root, demonstrating behavior similar to this Youtuber's. I believe it was a certain Jamesdelaney1 which you blocked on skype after recording his build and threatening to post it on your channel (against his will) when he left the Mithrintia server? If you could please refrain from doing so, he (and we, the others notified) would be greatly appreciative. You have no right whatsoever to release his content on your youtube account in response to him leaving your server, block him on skype when he attempted to argue against this action; and should you follow through with such then I must notify you that a post similar to this one shall be created, along with further action in response.
Zorts strikes again!

Except that this is simply not the case, as Jam had previously given me full rights to film this and put it on my channel. As we have already invested time and effort into filming and preparing this cinematic, I hardly think it is reasonable for him to suddenly claim exclusive rights on a build built on my map on my server under my conditions.

You guys realise you can take legal action against this person. You have overwhelming substancial evidence against him. He is making (as he states) a lot of money off stealing copyrighted material. His Youtube Channel alone is enough to win a court case. Just saying.
Like Ibledue said, I was once told by a police officer who came to speak to my class that anything you make is automatically copyrighted, but I could understand why you don't want a lawsuit.

Yeah, he's been putting them up as they get taken down. As two of them have been removed due to copyright infringement, I don't know how he still has his partnership, or even his account. It's really strange. But thanks to you guys for your continued support.

I have recently been messaged by Mrduuba2 because his video containing my work has been removed. Success. However he did message me this;"UrheberrechtsbestimmungenHallo, ich habe YouTube kontaktiert und ich bitte dich die Urheberrechtsbeschwerde zurückzunehmen, da dies ein sehr weiter Einschnitt und Verbot gegen die Bestimmungen von Mojang sind (minecraft.net/terms - "what you can do")
Bevor von YouTube beziehungsweise von meinem Anwalt eine Abmahnung durchgeführt wird, bin ich verpflichtet dich Privat anzuschreiben und das Problem "Privat" zu lösen.
Damit es zu keiner gerichtlichen Auseinandersetzung kommt, bitte ich dich die Urheberrechtsbeschwerde hier
www.youtube.com/t/retractions
zurückzunehmen.
Ich habe dich in der Videobeschreibung erwähnt und ich möchte nicht das du in irgendeinerweise geschädigt wirst. Ich habe keine "böse Absicht" mit dem Video gehabt!
Einen Schönen Abend noch ;)"[size=12px]For non German speakers he says. That he is not committing piracy as it is not against Mojang's terms of service. He also made references of getting his lawyer involved. [/size][size=12px]Seeing he does not have much of a case I doubt he would ever peruse this, but it is something to take in mind. [/size]

If he wants to make a oversea lawsuit against you because you had his video removed for legitimate piracy, then feel free to let him spend thousands of dollars hiring a lawyer. Although, I doubt he has one, considering I'm very sure he's at least under the age of 15.

He will not pursue this, and if he actually attempts to, simply let me know and I will take care of it. Do not worry.

Atleast he puts real link to download in some vids.....

Though ofcourse yes a lot of people think its his account and he gets money when people view it....

Hope they remove the mod vids too as they are the Water Shader and Sonic Ether's Shaders.

And this guy probably deserves to be trolled :3

Some retards just can't be smart.
There is a simple fix to this, The people who created the builds need to put a CopyRight symbol on all there work and possible a custom picture in the corner somewere so its legitly theres.

Now the problem is, he's downloading the builds and making his own videos. Because he's doing that, he can easily remove any copyright symbol from the build before he films it.
Also, shame on Duuba. He must have no life.

Argggh! These are seriously the WORST kind of people on the internet. First, using other peoples work like its their own and getting views and recognition and second, not telling viewers who the real hard workers are. Its theft plan and simple and just because it's done anonymously over the internet doesn't give them the right to use it as they please. This guy has no sense of what is right and wrong and lacks respect for others. A complete waste of space and well worth the flagging. :D

As annoying as this whole thing makes me there is one thing that slightly amuses me.

If this ***hole is making money off views, then all this attention and making people go to his youtube channel and view them is just making him more money /palmface.

Good news about the Mith build, hope he takes down the rest or someone takes him down!!

Uhm, this is punishable by law. The builds are copyright of their owners, and he's profitting by receiving money for something he hasn't done.

I'm going on the premise that even the littlest project deserve some respect (by at least credit the author) but when I saw this guy, I'm wondering if he has principles in his life or if he's just a piece of shit who only cares about his wallet.
