Well the Thompson SPAM tactics have now hit an all time low, moving to the realm of copyright infringement!
I was alerted by a viewer just a few minutes ago through YouTube, of a jackass that had STOLEN my How To Smoke A Cigar Video (original seen here) and reuploaded it as his own (stolen copy seen here), along with a handful of others. Obviously the username is bogus, but what’s interesting is a link in each to a Thompson POS cigar bundle deal, through a shell URL link.
Figuring this wasn’t the only one I uncovered many more such fake accounts with many more ripped off videos, even from other bloggers and sites like Cigar Aficionado, Tobacconist University & Doc from Stogie Fresh and more!
I have already filed a copyright infringement claim with YouTube that pulled my content but most of the others are still up.
