This is unfortunate and with the way things are with the online world its hard 
for you to even take action to get it removed. I do not post anything online 
that I am at all concerned with someone stealing. I am even very paranoid with 
having password protected films on vimeo but so many festivals these days only 
want the online submissions. Thanks for the heads up Raymond, it was good of 
you to share this with the group.

Without failure you can never achieve success. I have based my process and my 
career as an experimental film artist on this statement; and I welcome it as it 
pushes me forward as an artist to try something different, something new.

This is very common, beware everyone believes everything is "fair use" these 
days despite laws and some restrictions. And maybe they are correct. If he 
makes money on it you can probably sue him. I caution anyone who places work on 
youtube. However, I can find almost any film (narrative, documentary, etc.) on 
youtube.  I do not look for ag films there.

Hello all

Just a polite heads up. I was recently approached by a "composer" named Patrick 
H Kowalewski, who requested the use of one of my films to use as a music video. 
I declined and told him that although I do make music videos on commission my 
films have specific soundtracks, editing, etc.

Of course today I have found that despite being told no he went and used it 

So just in case someone named Patrick H Kowalewski (or various other band names 
he uses on youtube) approaches you to use your work I would keep and eye out 
shortly afterward for infringement.
