My videos were Stolen!!!  
A person pretending to be me on youTube as BudongChowBC has stolen four of my videos and my name and pretended that they are hers.  I don't have a youTube account and I haven't for a long time.  I'm just so mad that she did that.  I put time and effort in to making them and I can't believe that someone would disregard that so completely.  I'm sure that person doesn't even know where the name Budong Chow came from.  It pisses me off that someone would be so lazy and talentless that they would try to pass themselves off as someone else.  I can tell you intimate details of each video when I made them, why I made them.  I also have them linked here far before she stole them and passed them off as her own.  I just hate the fact that she stole my name.  I make sure to stick my name and a watermark on my videos so that they don't get stolen but there is little I can do when they create a variation of my name and use that. 

This is a bigger problem then I thought.  I only started looking because I read on the Kawoosh forum that this was happing to a bunch of people.   I didn't think I would find anything but within a few seconds of searching.... MY VIDEOS on this losers site.  It just really bothers me.  I hope that none of you have to deal with this problem but if you do would you let me know how you handle it?  I left comments on her videos and her youtube account but I am only one person and short of annoying her to death with posts saying this video is stolen I don't know what else I can do. 

I would really appreciate any help that you guys can give me... go here and annoy this person, that would help :)  In the very least it would make me a little happier because right now I am livid.  I don't think I've felt this mad in a while.  I am generally a very happy person but right now I just can't seem to ease my mind about this.  I just hate that all these people are commenting on how good the videos are and how great her editing was when it was me.  I guess I should be flattered that this person wants my life but I'm just pissed!!!!

That's awful! I just don't understand why someone would do that, especially after the amount of work a person puts into making a vid. I'm sorry. : (

Thanks, and thanks for the comment you left of their youtube page. So far I haven't been responded to by them but it's only a matter of time right?

It was no problem at all. I just hope that this gets resolved...

Thank you for the list of sites... They will be very helpful in at least getting the word out. I just don't understand what joy someone like that would get out of people commenting on something that isn't even theirs?!

I've had some experience with these sort of people and I've yet to figure out what they gain from it besides false adoration. Empty, hollow praise is empty, hollow praise. It's mind boggling.

Seriously?

Man, I don't understand how someone can do something like that. Try to go with the flattered...even though its hard. That way you can sit back and let us all annoy the crap out of this person. =)

That does make me happy.. :) And I'm trying to go with flattered.. I does help that so many people are coming to my aid though, so thanks.
