Ho Ho Ho! What did you do YouTube? On 25th December the world goes crazy and why it shouldn’t it’s Christmas. Many companies share creative videos, posts over social media wishing everyone happy holidays. But when the biggest video sharing platform YouTube attempted the same something went wrong.
Lily Hevesh, a domino artist got stunned when she saw YouTube’s Christmas greetings on Twitter, it was her video but without the credit. Hevesh had uploaded the Christmassy domino video on her YouTube channel on December 23, which now has 72K views. While the stripped copy that YouTube published on Twitter has surpassed 570K views.

In reply to the upload, Hevesh tweeted, “(I am) very glad to see my Christmas domino e-card is getting good use”. She added, “However, I’m a bit disappointed that YouTube would take my video and re-upload it with absolutely no credit. People rip off my work every day and it’s honestly saddening to see this happen by YouTube itself.”
