Just a very few highlights. This is long.
“David Wilcock’s only official YouTube channel has been “permanently disabled” after four fake copyright strikes by a single individual, going by the name “Alec Theodore Wallace.” Ever since December 21st, we have been writing multiple, detailed letters, to everyone we knew “on the inside” at YouTube, with our Internet attorney in the To: field, and got nothing. Now an anonymous individual has managed to destroy David’s entire YouTube presence. His stolen videos are still online and he is earning felony Grand Theft-level profits from them.
“My channel had been online since August 2010 without a single copyright strike — because I make my own videos with my own content.
“So who the hell is Alec Theodore Wallace?… How does a random, anonymous individual come to think he can own my voice, my writing, my narration and my content — jointly produced with Corey Goode and his team? The other three links to my book-promoting videos also say the copyright claims were made by “Alec Theodore Wallace,” as you can see for yourself.
“Unless we start committing fraud like Sir Wallace, I am not legally allowed to create new channels either. Those are the rules YouTube put in place. I represent a whole team of people working in alliance. In one utterly ridiculous series of events, we have been vanquished by a faceless attacker.
“CONCLUSION… I know this is a lot to look at, and it affects others in my field besides just myself. I do not believe this will go away even if all of these are taken down, but I do believe this is a good start. A serious investigation is required into what is going on here. I believe people are buying short-term mobile phones, validating these accounts and hiding their identity.
“Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. This may also include a workflow for me to continue reporting these channels as they pop up.”
David Wilcock’s only official YouTube channel has been “permanently disabled” after four fake copyright strikes by a single individual, going by the name “Alec Theodore Wallace.”
Ever since December 21st, we have been writing multiple, detailed letters, to everyone we knew “on the inside” at YouTube, with our Internet attorney in the To: field, and got nothing.
Now an anonymous individual has managed to destroy David’s entire YouTube presence. His stolen videos are still online and he is earning felony Grand Theft-level profits from them.
This is punishable by up to three years in prison if he gets caught, particularly with his other crimes factored in — as we will discuss. Wild stuff.
What could possibly have allowed this to happen? There is a much greater cosmic story going on here when we consider the content of the deleted videos themselves, so read on.
If this could happen to David, it could happen to anyone else in this field as well. And there are signs that it already is. We need to hang together or we will hang separately.
Get the intriguing facts of this case — and find out how you can help us regain David’s identity. Please don’t attack YouTube’s staff about this — we need their help.
UPDATED Next Morning — and Happy New Year 2017!
TAKE A LOOK…
At the time of this writing, you can go ahead and click on any of these following links and see the same message.
My four top videos were all killed off by a single person — the Honorable Sir Alec Theodore Wallace:
David Wilcock | Corey Goode: Endgame II– The Antarctic Atlantis ET Ruins/ Cabal Rescue Plan
David Wilcock: The Ascension Mysteries | Cosmic Battle Between Good and Evil
David Wilcock: The Synchronicity Key | Pt. 1 of the Full Video!
David Wilcock: Intro to The Synchronicity Key, Ver. 1 (ORIGINAL)
Say what? These were four of our most popular videos. Together they had more than two million views. Three out of four helped launch my published books.
The last two videos announced my book The Ascension Mysteries — well before it came out in August 2013. That’s right. Over three and a half years ago.
Ascension Mysteries and Endgame II were my YouTube comeback videos for 2016 after a long absence, as I finally picked up the author’s pen once more.
These videos were the beginning of a whole new push that was intended to ramp up big-time in 2017. Both were doing phenomenally well.
Ascension had over 350,000 views and Endgame II was pushing 150,000. That’s half a million altogether — amazing numbers in today’s competitive market.
My channel had been online since August 2010 without a single copyright strike — because I make my own videos with my own content.
AT LEAST THE GAIA VIDEOS CANNOT BE STOLEN
Thankfully, Gaia is privately-owned, and all 300+ episodes I have on there are secure. This includes my recent appearance on our new show, Buzzsaw with Sean Stone.
Everything I talk about in that episode is directly relevant to what is going on right now. You can see everything for 99 cents in the first month with no penalty fees.
As explained in Endgame II, we have already been put on the “Fake News” kill list, so your help is needed now more than ever. Thanks!
YOU MAKE SOMETHING, IT BECOMES YOUR COPYRIGHT… SO WHAT GIVES?
So who the hell is Alec Theodore Wallace?
Let’s just make this loud and clear: I am not a robot. My site is divinecosmos.com. My only official YouTube channel is/was youtube.com/davidwilcock333.
I make my own videos sometimes. I get up in front of a camera and ad-lib my way through Keynote slides. Most of my videos are in front of my audiences.
Copyright is automatically generated when a creator releases content into the public domain. Here it is from attorney Sara Hawkins:
Copyright attaches as soon as the original work is created, and applies to both published and unpublished works.
As soon as you type words, click the shutter on your camera (or, for many of you, hit the home button on your iPhone), apply paint to canvas or paper or lay down tracks for your next hit, you’ve got a copyright….
I hold the copyright for all of these videos.
Let me say it in plain English:
The thing is, is that, this should be obvious… since it’s, like, my face, my voice, my information and stuff, ya know. Duh!
WELL PLAYED, SIR
Every video we have ever made is now dead. Nor can we post any more of them. Our team has a mega-update to the deleted Endgame II video that is now dead in the water until this clears up.
I also just bought a teleprompter so I can read the new articles I write and make videos out of them. That ain’t gonna happen until we get through this.
The last 45 minutes of the original Endgame II video did not have changing visuals, but the final version now awaiting release in our hard drives absolutely does.
The /davidwilcock333 channel no longer exists, even though it was my only official YouTube outlet.
Unless we start committing fraud like Sir Wallace, I am not legally allowed to create new channels either. Those are the rules YouTube put in place.
I represent a whole team of people working in alliance. In one utterly ridiculous series of events, we have been vanquished by a faceless attacker.
Well played, sir, well played.
Up until this ridiculous and lethal strike happened, I had never heard of this person. We started to get inundated with your questions immediately.
All of my videos were either made by myself or with one or two trusted associates who I have immediate access to. My copyright attaches to the videos automatically.
The YouTube system held me guilty as charged, and gave me no recourse when this mysterious individual stole and then destroyed my identity.
Every letter I wrote in was greeted with a robotic response. Then when I finally did get a human being, he disappeared after promising an investigation.
Another robo-letter then said they “spoke to the team” and the case was closed. We lose. He wins. Period.
The real guy did say the holidays were going to delay the team’s investigation, but this has already been going on for over a week. The next business day isn’t until January 2nd.
Alec Theodore Wallace. Dude.
Who the heck uses a full three-part name these days anyway?
ALEC THEODORE WALLACE?
Here is what you will see on the first of these four YouTube links.
This video used to be a one-hour-and-52-minute narration of our previous article, ENDGAME II.
I narrated it. Corey Goode’s video guy added the images. There was no “Pizzagate” content in it, so it can’t be from the alleged ban on that topic either.
How does a random, anonymous individual come to think he can own my voice, my writing, my narration and my content — jointly produced with Corey Goode and his team?
The other three links to my book-promoting videos also say the copyright claims were made by “Alec Theodore Wallace,” as you can see for yourself.
Who’s name is on the cover of those books? How many books has Alec Theodore Wallace written? Has anyone ever even seen him?
LET’S DO A SEARCH FOR ALEC THEODORE WALLACE….
I’m reaching a bit now, but come on. Something is going on. This just doesn’t smell right.
Let’s try to find out who this guy is — and how he came to believe that he owns my voice, face and creative work.
Nothing whatsoever comes up in a Google search for this name except for pissed-off people, myself included, wondering who the hell this guy is.
President Theodore Roosevelt was often referred to as “Teddy”, and had a popular children’s toy named after him.
Therefore, our insider code-name for this fine fellow is the Teddy Bear.
You are now on a need-to-know basis. Keep it secret. Keep it safe.
Teddy just opened up a can of whoop-ass.
TAKE A MOMENT TO LISTEN TO “FAMILY SNAPSHOT” BY PETER GABRIEL
You want to know what song I feel should be playing in the background right now? Let’s take a moment of zen and really appreciate this.
It’s “Family Snapshot,” from Peter Gabriel’s eponymous third solo album from 1980, often called “Melt.”
This song is constantly playing in the background of my mind right now, so you might as well share the soundtrack along with me as you read this.
In my opinion this album is one of the most under-appreciated works of genius in rock history. It definitely helped get me through high school.
The whole album is a meditation on the criminal mastermind, ending up with him using a spoon to eat in the mental hospital after he has been captured for murder.
Then Peter goes on to honor one of the victims — a truly great hero, Steven Biko — in a song that still makes every hair on my body stand up:
ROCK MUSICIANS CAN DO GREAT THINGS
If I am going to get into an argument about who is the best rock vocalist and composer of all time, Peter Gabriel would be very high on my list.
Steven is right up there too, and he just won a UN humanitarian award for “Janie’s Got a Fund,” creating advocacy support for victims of sexual violence.
We knew this was coming for months and it is great to finally announce it. Both of these artists have used their public platform to create positive changes in the world.
Steven has already raised $2 million and is auctioning off his most expensive toy, one of only 12 Hennesey Venom GT sports cars in the world, to help kick-start this fund.
As I just leaked on Jimmy Church’s radio show the day before the attack, Steven and I have been friends for three years.
He’s a very busy guy and we don’t talk that often, but he did show up as a surprise guest for my 40th birthday party.
Kerry Cassidy was there among about 25 others. I coached everyone on how to handle it before he arrived: “Don’t act like you have any idea who he is!”
Steven is really ‘into’ the metaphysical stuff and his new solo album, We’re All Somebody from Somewhere, is truly superb in its musical and spiritual content.
We are all going through Ascension in our own ways. Music can be a valuable tool for our self-transformative process.
Never did I think that I would be able to empathize with Peter Gabriel’s “Family Snapshot” so deeply — a song written from the inner perspective of a Lee Harvey Oswald-type assassin.
Hmm. Why do these guys always end up with three-part names?
TAKE A LOOK AT THE INSIDER VIEW….
Now let’s drill into this outrageous violation a little deeper and look under the hood — mixing metaphors madly.
Here is what I was seeing within YouTube’s own Content Manager before I got completely locked out of my own account.
I blocked out part of his email address in this image, even though Mr. Wallace posted mine on the internet and encouraged people to send “hate mail” to it.
More on that in a bit.
For now, take a look at what I started seeing as of December 21st, nearly ruining my entire Christmas vacation:
Wait a minute… how does “Alec Theodore Wallace” have anything to do with David Wilcock and Corey Goode?
Quick answer: He doesn’t.
Just wait… it gets worse and worse.
“I…..I’ve been waiting for this….”
IS HE ALEC WALLACE OR ALFRED WALLACE?
Notice also that the above email, which we have partially obscured to preserve the privacy of his assumed identity, has the name of Alfred Wallace.
“Alec” is generally short for Alexander. Alec is an entirely different first name than Alfred.
Now you’ve got Ted and Fred. But apparently they go together like peanut butter and jelly. Two integral components of a $–+ sandwich.
This is a hot lunch I got served up right during the holidays, with no recourse but to shout at the walls in disbelief as the plane hurtled to the ground.
WAIT…. WHO IS ALFRED WALLACE?
Alfred Wallace is an important historical figure — the co-discoverer of the Theory of Evolution, who co-published a paper with Charles Darwin in 1858:
Hardly anyone else is competing for the name of “Alfred Wallace” on a Google search.
You have to go seven pages deep to find any other man on earth named Alfred Wallace. He then happens to be a professor at the University of Idaho.
Finally on the ninth page you find another one, but only with Wallace as the middle name — Alfred Wallace Downer, from the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.
One small problem — “Wally” Downer died in 1994. 22 years ago now.
Other than these two guys, all you get for pages and pages is links to Alfred Russel Wallace, the forgotten co-discoverer of the Theory of Evolution.
SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST — A SPIRITUAL PHILOSOPHY?
Alfred Wallace’s theory was that the best killers are the most highly evolved individuals on earth. They are the force that causes our species to transform.
Therefore, since this dude somehow managed to murder all of my videos, he appears to have built a sardonic joke into his assumed name.
He is “hiding it out in the open,” if you will. We’ve already written extensively about certain folks who use tricks like this to get results.
He may also think that most people will not take the time to research his assumed name — which is about three seconds of work — and discover its origins.
HOW DOES A SCIENTIST, DEAD FOR 103 YEARS, OWN OUR CONTENT?
I have no idea how “Mr. Wallace” was able to successfully accomplish this epic attack.
Two of the videos have been promoting my second NYT best-selling book, The Synchronicity Key, since before its release in August 2013.
How could Mr. Wallace own the copyright on three David Wilcock videos, produced and directed by DW, starring DW, about books DW wrote for Penguin?
And why didn’t the automated YouTube system simply check to see which video was posted first?
How did I end up getting treated as guilty until proven innocent for over a week — until my entire identity was scrubbed off of YouTube completely?
The Teddy Bear came here to chew bubblegum and kick ass.
And he’s all out of bubble gum.
WE WOKE UP THE BEAR BY POKING A STICK AT HIM
This is one bear that definitely does not hibernate in the winter. Someone woke him up… and he is very grumpy.
That someone was me.
It all started when I filed a copyright strike against him after he stole my new video and rudely burned in his website address… throughout the entire thing.
He also hacked it down from one hour and 52 minutes to 59 minutes.
This was a critical intel update. I wonder what exactly he censored.
And Times New Roman font? Gross. At least use a sans serif font like Arial!
Hey, wait… isn’t that the copywritten image of the alleged “Pre-Adamite” giants from Corey Goode’s own visual FX team?
Yep, that’s the one.
The Teddy Bear translates Copyright as the Right to Copy.
VERIFIED TWITTER ACCOUNT PROVES WE WERE FIRST
Here are two images from my official, verified Twitter account of when this video, /wu854P7gzJ4, first went up — December 14th, 2016.
The blue check-mark you see is confirmation that this is the “real David Wilcock”, not an impostor account:
Doesn’t that code, wu854…, look familiar? It should. It’s the digital name for the first video the Teddy Bear claimed the Right to Copy for.
THREE DAYS LATER…
Here is a snapshot of the Teddy Bear’s stolen version, complete with the date — December 17th, 2016. This is three days AFTER the original came out:
Shouldn’t YouTube have an automated system that decisively judges whose copy appeared first? Apparently not.
When we filed a takedown against this stolen copy on “Ancient Aliens TV,” it was already at 45,000 views.
Corey’s copy had over 200,000 and I was at about 135,000. We had a soaring viral success on our hands. I didn’t put any ads in my version, as usual.
How does that type of a smash hit look to a con artist?
If you don’t care about getting your own private room in the Big House, it looks like a high-speed Concorde jet stuffed with money.
HE KNEW HE HAD THE GUN
As this horrible saga went on, Ted filed three strikes, which is a kill shot. Apparently this works even if it’s done by one single individual only.
When the first counter-strike notice came in, YouTube’s system effectively says if you are not willing to file a lawsuit right on the spot, then don’t bother:
The second half of this letter had an absolutely bizarre legal attack in it from “Mr. Wallace,” stridently asserting copyright where none existed:
The address and telephone number traced back to one of the most expensive hotels in Iceland. Huh?
The two-digit number in the blacked-out part of the address was also incorrect by one digit, as a simple Google search confirmed.
How are you supposed to “serve legal process” to an individual with an obvious pseudonym — who gives you a slightly-incorrect hotel address and telephone number?
I have blocked out this information just in case he actually has the dough to live there.
By comparison, when Mr. Wallace gained my information, he blasted it out on the internet and instructed his viewers to send “hate mail” to my YouTube email address.
A CEREMONIAL ATTACK
As you can see, the first strike and counter-notification came in from Ted as of December 21st.
This also happens to be the Winter Solstice, an important ceremonial date.
He quickly hit me with two more strikes against videos he absolutely had no Right to Copy, and certainly did not own, on December 23rd, just two days before Christmas.
Now I had three strikes. I had already been writing YouTube in a panic. I was astonished.
My channel would be dead in seven days… right during the longest holiday blackout period of the entire year.
The longest I could wait was until December 30th — the day before New Year’s. No one would be working normal hours during that time. It was checkmate.
NOW THE TEDDY BEAR GROWS SOME TEETH
Ted then demanded that I reverse my single, existing strike against him, thereby re-uploading his stolen copy, in order to save my channel.
I politely complied — under duress.
I knew he was in complete violation of copyright, and had told him he was committing serious criminal offenses. My attorney was included in the To: field.
He was amazingly persistent and felt he was in the right. I honestly had never seen or heard of anything like this. He acted like he was untouchable.
Ted knew he had the gun. YouTube was doing nothing. As it went on, he became extremely rude and demeaning.
Yes, I actually had multiple email exchanges with “Alec Theodore Wallace.”
He said he was an admirer of my work. “I don’t really hate you… I don’t care what you do… We were made for each other, me and you…”
A CRIME THAT PAYS — BUT AT A TERRIBLE COST
YouTube AdSense revenues are generally estimated at being roughly 7 dollars per 1000 views if you put a “rollout ad” at the beginning of your video.
Almost all of the stolen videos we will discuss do just that — and more.
The article “You Can Make Six Figures as a YouTube Star and Still End Up Poor” profiled a YouTube star who was making $7.60 per 1000 clicks.
An often-reproduced article on Quora.com estimates five to eight dollars of revenue per 1000 clicks.
The dollar value increases when the audience has more “engagement” with the subject of the video, as in the case of a known public figure like myself.
Therefore, at the $7 per 1000-view price point, a video with 100,000 views adds up to 700 dollars of stolen revenue.
IT’S BECOME A HUGE HIT
In the one week since my reversal, his stolen copy has skyrocketed to well over 220,000 hits. It’s probably one of the best YouTube scams he’s ever pulled off.
Based on the average of $7 per 1000 clicks for video ads that roll at the beginning, he has now made over $1555 in estimated AdSense revenues.
Will they pay him?
If so, it’s potentially a felony. It’s called Grand Theft in the state of California, where YouTube disputes for anyone outside the US must be litigated.
Ted claims to be living in Reykjavik, Iceland, so therefore this case will be subject to California law as per YouTube’s own notification.
Let’s now take a look at what that law actually says, from trusted sources, just so we are clear on this.
WHAT IS “FAIR USE?”
In the US, the 1976 Copyright Act introduced the doctrine of “Fair Use” in section 107.
The Endgame II video was an audio narration of an article jointly written by Corey and me. That means we are the copyright holders.
In the case of written works like an article, the guidelines are very straightforward and strict.
I know them well after having three different published books with Dutton, a Penguin label. You cannot quote more than 500 words from a published work, as a single excerpt.
This is explained on a University of Pittsburgh website on Electronic Theses and Dissertations, among countless others:
…Although there is no precise definition of the concept of fair use, there are some informal quantitative rules of thumb that we can apply.
Prose quotations of more than 500 words in one passage or 2,000 words throughout the manuscript, if from a single copyrighted source, probably ought to be cleared….
If the material quoted—poetry or prose—represents a significant portion of a work, permission must be secured regardless of the total number of words.
Anything over 500 words requires written permission. Period. And if a “significant portion” of a work is copied, it is copyright infringement, which is a crime.
COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT CAN LEAD TO A $150,000 DOLLAR COURT JUDGMENT AND EVEN PRISON TIME
As it says on the Purdue University Copyright Office website, copyright infringement is no laughing matter.
The legal penalties for copyright infringement are:
Infringer pays the actual dollar amount of damages and profits.
The law provides a range from $200 to $150,000 for each work infringed.
Infringer pays for all attorneys fees and court costs.
The Court can issue an injunction to stop the infringing acts.
The Court can impound the illegal works.
The infringer can go to jail.
In short, copyright laws do not permit you to duplicate the contents of an article we wrote and sell ads off of it. “Fair Use” for written works only extends to 500 words.
WHAT DOES THIS YOUTUBE THEFT MEAN IN CRIMINAL TERMS?
Any stolen monies that are less than $950 are considered “petty theft” under Ca. Penal Code § 514, which is a misdemeanor, subjecting a defendant to a possible jail sentence of six months or less, and a fine of up to $1,000.
Once it crosses the line and goes over $950 — or a total of approximately 136,000+ YouTube views — it becomes Grand Theft, also known as Grand Larceny.
Grand Theft can potentially become a felony under California Penal Code §§ 484 to 502.9.
As it says on CriminalDefenseLawyer.com, a felony Grand Theft conviction can lead to “state prison time of 16 months, 2, or 3 years.”
In other words, if your stolen video of our content does really well, and you actually make a thousand dollars, it could ruin your whole life.
“HAPPILY AND AMICABLY”
Ted promised we could resolve this “HAPPILY and amicably” if I did as he asked. He lied.
Here is one of his emails expressing his Right to Copy philosophy.
This was December 23rd, immediately after he hit me with the second and third strikes, creating a kill shot:

Subject: Re: Happy to resolve your complaint…
To: David Wilcock
Firstly I have the full commercial rights to the content portrayed in the digital media outlined.
You however do not own ALL the digital media in your production. You do not have the rights from me to use some or any of my content. And I have declared what it is.
[DW: Never once did he claim or attempt to prove that a single image, audio track or written content in the presentation was his. Either way, “Fair Use” does allow for the use of images for informational and educational purposes.]
You should think before you serve copyright strikes especially when you are serving them on the copyright owner!
You have struck my channel without the full copyright to do so. Remove YOUR copyright strike against me and I will do the same. HAPPILY and amicably.
I like your content and am still willing to promote. With respect to any other websites advertised they are nothing to do with me. You will have to contact those parties direct.
I can advertise whoever I like on my channel. Twitter or websites, Including you if you like, for free. But please be sensible.
24 hours to reply
THEN WHEN IT COMES TIME TO RETURN THE FAVOR…
When it was time for him to re-upload his versions, he claimed he couldn’t get the system to work.
The videos did not appear on the Claims Retraction page, he said… yet this could have easily been Photoshopped:
I had absolutely no trouble reversing my claim. And why would the blue box say “these videos” if there were no videos below it?
Every strike you ever make is on permanent record and shows up in the window at the link I sent him.
He could very easily have copied the line “No videos were found” from another one of his YouTube channels, since he appears to have many of them.
THEN HE FORWARDS ALLEGEDLY “URGENT” EMAILS HE SENT TO YOUTUBE’S COPYRIGHT OFFICE
He then forwarded me emails where he claimed to be asking YouTube to reverse his copyright claims, saying it was a “dire” and “urgent” situation.
It appeared that he was following the proper procedure, emailing them at email@example.com.
I have no way of proving whether or not he actually sent those emails. My guess is that he never did.
Either way, nothing happened.
The silence was deafening. I tried to enjoy the Christmas season with my family and it was very hard not to talk about this the whole time.
HE GAVE ME HIS WORD… FOLLOWED BY INSULTS
In this next email from the day before Christmas, he continued to shame and insult me for enforcing my own copyright, even though I had already backed off.
He also gave me “his word” that he would fix this:

Subject: Re: Happy to resolve your complaint…
To: David Wilcock
This is a dire situation. It didn’t have to go this far, and I gave you every opportunity for it not to do so. I Will endeavour to fix all this as you have retracted your claim as promised. My word.
Actions have consequences as you have now learned. I will do my utmost to resolve. The servers in Iceland update here 9am local time. Midnight West coast.
It’s xmas eve here and I am make this my priority checking in the email thread. Until YouTube respond I am waiting.
Don’t worry we will fix this. I have also lost 2 days earnings on a video at peak time. Which is minimal compared to you.
I am in business too so let’s resolve. Iceland is a different system and believe it or not we want results as well as resolutions.
Two days’ earnings? Minimal compared to me? Up until now I haven’t advertised on YouTube at all. And why insult the victim when you’ve already won?
Again… in order to afford to do this full time, I have three jobs — Gaia, writing books and doing conferences. I rent one house. I have one car that is a 2002.
Without juggling all three of these jobs, I couldn’t make it. All this work leads to an extremely busy life with hardly any time left over for friends or recreation.
Additionally I have taken on the greatest negative forces on earth despite ongoing threats and the real possibility of danger to my personal safety.
I have always had trouble with people trying to unfairly cash in on all of this as if it is a business, when for me it is a fight for the future of humanity.
ONE FINAL EMAIL — AND THEN HE 180’S
After four more horrible days with no results, a desperately ticking clock and not a word from YouTube — effectively ruining Christmas — I sent him a final email asking him what was going on:
———- Forwarded message ———-
From: David Wilcock
Date: Wed, Dec 28, 2016 at 3:32 PM
Subject: Re: Happy to resolve your complaint…
To: Alfred Wallace, [DW’s Attorney]
I am still getting nowhere with YouTube. Please continue trying to revert your copyright strikes on your side as I did for you. Otherwise I will have to do Copyright School and there will be no new videos for three months.
At the very least if you could send me confirmation of the written attempts you made for all three of the takedowns, that would help.
His response to my very polite request was to file yet ANOTHER fake copyright strike!
What happened to his word? What happened to any of the promises he had made up until then? Was anything that he told me actually true?
Finally I was seeing the ugly truth. It sure looked like he was just playing me the entire time. This is what I was now seeing:
Here is a view of another screen I was seeing where all four of these YouTube link codes were pictured, along with their strike notifications:
YouTube still said nothing. I had three days left.
Tick, tock. Tick, tock. Tick, tock. Tick, tock.
COPYRIGHT SCHOOL LEADS TO DEATH
I took Copyright School, as instructed, after firmly stating in writing to YouTube that this was not an admission of guilt.
The guidelines appeared to indicate that this would preserve my channel for three months, during which time I would only be restricted from uploading to it.
The video was a simple four minute and 39-second cartoon that explained things I already knew, followed by answering four questions:
Their main purpose, other than to reinforce what you just heard, was to point out that copyrights protect images, audio and video, not people.
I went to bed feeling relieved that I had finally taken action and this thing should now be over until someone actually figures out what happened within their support crew.
WOKE UP THE NEXT MORNING…
And Boom! My channel was dead. Not for three months, as it appeared to say beforehand, but permanently. Copyright school only sped up the inevitable.
LET’S NOW TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT THE GUY WHO DID ALL OF THIS…
Check out the logos on his channel, Ancient Aliens TV. Check out the website name, ancientaliens.tv.
“Oh, it’s Ancient Aliens!” No, it’s not. I have direct contact with them. They do not know who he is and do not want his “help with advertising.”
I would strongly recommend not giving them your credit card information for any reason, as this may well be a ‘phishing’ scam. I knew that all along.
The first thing Ted did after I filed the original strike was to publicly post my real YouTube email address. In later emails he blamed this on his “Business Partner.”
Even better, he encouraged people to send “hate mail” to me at this address, as you can see.
WATCH OUT FOR THE WOBBLER
Corey set his own copy of Endgame II to Private, since it seemed this guy could temporarily get away with murder during the holiday season.
Here’s the problem. His ‘earnings’ from stealing our content have already made him so much money — roughly $1555 and counting — that it is a felony.
The “wobbler” clause in Grand Theft cases could easily tip over into felony category by the fact that he is also impersonating a major media corporation.
Iceland may well be a safe haven, but even then this is an incredibly risky move.
Anyone doing this would have to be extremely sophisticated and quite confident that they can evade any and all consequences for their actions.
WE MAY HAVE IDENTIFIED A VAST FRAUD OPERATION
Why would this random individual be so angry at me? Why not just apologize for stealing the video and burning his logo into it, and walk away?
I didn’t even bother to attack any of the other videos of mine he had stolen.
Also notice the timing of when these uploads occurred. All but one of them were 6 days ago from the time the photo was taken — December 23rd, 2016.
In other words, he uploaded four out of five stolen videos in a single day — Decebmer 17th — followed by another on December 18th.
So, on the day he stole our Endgame II video, he didn’t just do one… he did four, and another one the next day.
How could someone be this confident? And what exactly were we stumbling over here?
I have reason to believe that Ancient Aliens TV may be only one channel within a much greater fraud operation that we have been quietly investigating all year.
Thousands of you have been writing in and complaining about all the fake videos — and this is the first time I am speaking to you about it.
My identity has been stolen on an industrial scale — across dozens of YouTube channels — for all of 2016.
Many others in my field are being hit by these same channels — in fact almost everyone.
The “Ancient Aliens TV” channel openly features industrial-scale theft of videos from all the major stars on the show.
They get taken down and more just keep coming up. It has been utterly incredible to watch… and very depressing.
IT STARTED WITH THE ORIGINAL TAKEDOWNS
It all started in 2015, after I filed copyright strikes and takedowns on a fake David Wilcock channel — three different times.
Suddenly they started blooming like mushrooms after a hard rain. That’s what 2016 has been like for me. Behind the scenes this has been deeply upsetting.
I have drastically curtailed the number of radio shows I would do as a result, just to try to give this person or group less “New” content to steal.
YouTube says you must pursue justice through individual takedown notices only. Their system is simply not equipped for anything on this level of scale.
The size and complexity of what is going on is so vast that this would be impossible without at least three full-time employees — maybe even as many as 20.
Is it possible that one individual could be coordinating all of this? Is it possible that I finally spoke to him after an entire year of stealing my identity on an epic scale?
I believe so.
ALMOST ON THE BRINK
At least three times I have been “almost on the brink” of making a major public statement or video about this, but then stopped to focus on other things.
All that footage is still in the can and can be brought out as needed.
I have strong reason to believe that I have now come face-to-face in cyberspace with the guy who has been masterminding this operation all along.
The Teddy Bear. The Grand Pooh, if you will.
Ted may be stealing content from everyone in the entire Seeking Truth field — in every sub-category — all across the board.
Name a name on Ancient Aliens. Name a UFO researcher. Name someone exposing financial tyranny. Get creative.
YouTube never seems to be able to get to the root of this problem.
If you think I’m being overly paranoid, just wait until you survey the evidence. It is hard to believe, and it would take multiple employees to pull this off.
Worst of all, even after humiliating me in written emails about how much money he thinks I make, if this is him, then he has almost certainly profited far more from my labors than I have.
Why should one guy’s crime ring be draining everyone else’s vitally-needed ad revenues, if that is in fact what is going on? It’s not fair and someone needs to speak up about it.
IT WAS ALL DOCUMENTED
All of this data has already been turned over to YouTube in emails that up until now seem to have been almost completely ignored.
Yet, almost all of the impersonating channels I pointed out in the below email from August have since been taken down for fraud. I have no idea how this was accomplished but it didn’t come from me.
There are obviously going to be others re-uploading videos as well, but sure seemed obvious all along that we were looking at a centralized operation.
Here is a typical splash screen that you now see when clicking on one of the below channel links:
Notice the strength of the wording: Multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, deceptive practices and misleading content.
THE WORDING AGAINST ‘DAVIDWILCOCK333’ WAS FAR MILDER
By comparison, this is the letter that now appears on my own channel that Mr. Wallace took down:
In case you can’t see it, the message says “This account has been terminated becasue we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted.”
That’s a much less severe-sounding note.
SURVEY THE EVIDENCE FOR YOURSELF
You are about to read a partial excerpt, with links, of a major email to YouTube that ultimately got me nowhere.
I honestly do not think any of us are going to stop the Teddy Bear, if he really is doing all of this. The trick is simply to adapt to him and figure out how to increase security.
Later in August, I filmed myself going through all of the following channels while they were still alive and well. It is absolutely astonishing to watch.
The number of stolen David Wilcock videos that could be uploaded, per day, could be as many as 12 to 20 on one single channel.
Most of them had very few hits, but about one in 25 did well. About one in 75 did very well.
THE SAME GRAPHIC
The channels almost all used the same three or four different splash-art graphics at the top of the channel page. This leaf is the most common one:
In addition to many of the deleted channels I filmed, the same formula is still being used on many other active channels, along with the same art, as you are about to see.
These images were occasionally paired with images of Asian girls to make it appear that this was being done out of Southeast Asia.
I expect Ted will be very busy in the virtual “shredding room” tonight, if he is the guy actually doing all of this. We have already documented everything.
HERE IS A SAMPLE OF CHANNELS THAT ARE STILL UP AT THE TIME WE PUBLISHED THIS
Right for now, you can click on these links to channels stealing either Ancient Aliens episodes, DW or both, and see the connections.
This data was sent in to YouTube on December 26th, under Subject: Re: [0-4185000015108] [1-1317000015183] YouTube Partner Support PROOF OF HUGE THEFT OF ANCIENT ALIENS EPISODES BY SAME MAN.
MANY OTHER EXAMPLES CURRENTLY AIRING ON YOUTUBE
Other channels that appear to also be the work of the same person include:
Traveling the Stars guccii (Same image as Eugene J. Morgan)
Eugene J. Morgan (Again pic of Asian girl)
1stHiVong (55 videos)
John Winder (145 videos)
Ancient Mysteries Solved
La Oha (18 stolen David Wilcock videos, nothing else)
David Wilcock HD (14 stolen David Wilcock videos, nothing else)
David Wilcock 2016 (23 stolen David Wilcock videos, nothing else)
Gene Jordan (Stolen Ancient Aliens content as well as a Wilcock video)
It goes without saying that watching bootleg copies of these episodes on YouTube is stealing from me, the other talents and the production company.
Please use legitimate avenues to watch them instead.
LET’S READ THE ORIGINAL COMPLAINT
Here is the original letter that was written back in August, before I had retained an attorney to help me fight this incredible problem.
Countless thousands of people have been complaining about the massive number of “fake” David Wilcock videos that are of old radio shows, but marked as new.
[UPDATE NEXT MORNING: Jimmy Church revealed last night that the same thing was happening to him. He has 578 radio shows out there. He was doing at least 50 takedowns a day in groups of 10 until he got a partner affiliate company to handle it for him.
Thousands of people were writing vicious hate comments about false advertising and over-indulgence in ads, as if he had done all of this himself.
I have had the same experience. This epic theft has created enormous bad blood in the community. It makes us all look like money-grubbing pirates. Some of these videos have 20 ads laced through them. Guys, it’s not us!]

THEFT OF “DAVID WILCOCK 2016” VIDEOS ON AN INDUSTRIAL SCALE
In short: I have identified at least 15 different channels that are all stealing my content on an industrial scale that is nothing short of staggering.
They must have realized they can harness the draw that I have and create enough AdSense money to keep doing it.
Here is the problem:
Every radio show or public performance I have ever done, many of which are quite old, is being re-packaged as “2016” and “New” and re-uploaded constantly.
This is fraud. My audience is being massively misled. Legitimate videos are being absolutely buried in mountains of “new” garbage on a daily basis.
There is an awesome malevolence behind this. Your privacy complaint form requests that I contact the individual myself.
In no way do I want to engage with whomever is doing this, as it seems unlikely to be only one person.
I can only conclude that there must be some sort of software bot that they are using to do this, as the scope is utterly enormous.
You literally have to see it to believe it. That requires a brief but revealing investment of your time in clicking on the “All Videos” lists below.
Many of these channels have similar-sounding generic titles and are using the same or similar graphics on their title screens, as you can see.
They show no evidence of a personality who is filming him or herself and are strictly re-uploading material that is not of their copyright.
Notice that other big names in my field such as David Icke, Jim Willie, Paul Craig Roberts and Gerald Celente are also being attacked the same way:
LIST OF YOUTUBE CHANNELS STEALING OLD DAVID WILCOCK RADIO SHOWS AND RE-PACKAGING AS ‘2016’
[30 videos total, all David Wilcock and / or Corey Goode, the co-star of my show]
Andrew Wommack 2016
[First 11 videos are all David Wilcock, the rest a Christian preacher]
Corey Goode 2016
[This channel was called “David Wilcock” until I took down three duplicate videos. Corey Goode is my co-star. Almost 100 percent stolen DW videos.]
[Massive amount of “David Wilcock” stolen videos, even on first screen that comes up]
David Wilcock 2016 HD
[THE ONE example in my list you guys actually took down! Thanks!]
Conspiracy News 2016
[Same stolen Wilcock videos as always on first screen, this time with “AUGUST” prominently in the title, and “NEW” — but they are not]
Latest Economy News
[Click “Load More” three times to start seeing the same DW videos]
Economic TV 2017
[Click “Load More” twice to see the beginning of all the DW videos]
[Click “Load More” twice to see the beginning of all the DW videos]
There are about six other channels I could send you that have fewer of my videos and more of others in my field.
However, any one of them has at least five of the same stolen videos re-uploaded.
Given the choice of channel names, graphics, the people who are being stolen from and the complete lack of film of private individuals or the establishment of identities, I believe these are all the work of the same individual or group.
This person may be making enough to survive by doing this, but it is absolutely strangling all legitimate content from YouTube of several individuals in my field.
Any help you can provide us with would be greatly appreciated.
OTHER EXAMPLES OF THE SAME PROBLEM
Here are the other examples I found of the same person or group doing their work, where I am not so blatantly being ripped off.
Notice the relentless similarities of the style and format in many cases, including very simple titles with “2016” at the end as one example:
[THE FOLLOWING WILCOCK VIDEOS WERE REMOVED AS OF 8/11, IN LAST 3 DAYS:]
David Wilcock 2016 / David Wilcock The Source Field
David Wilcock 2016 – discovery David Wilcock and interview 2016

David Wilcock 2016 – David Wilcock Sympton Spiritual
David Wilcock 2016 – Corey Goode Interview Secret Space
Planet x nibiru 2016
The Watchmen 2016
Cobra interview 2016
New World Order 2016
[Jim Willie, Gerald Celente, David Icke, Paul Craig Roberts, Steve Quayle etc – massive numbers of the same stolen videos]
[47 videos, at least 44 are re-posted Corey Goode]
THE UFO CHANNEL
[Great deal of stolen Dr. Greer videos (16), Linda Moulton Howe (14)]
RUSSELL B RAND
[Six videos, five of which are stolen Dr. Steven Greer videos, two include David Icke]
[Fifteen stolen Dr. Greer videos. No David Wilcock.]
Top New Documentary
The Lions Den
[Massive amount of stolen David Icke content]
I know this is a lot to look at, and it affects others in my field besides just myself. I do not believe this will go away even if all of these are taken down, but I do believe this is a good start.
A serious investigation is required into what is going on here. I believe people are buying short-term mobile phones, validating these accounts and hiding their identity.
Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. This may also include a workflow for me to continue reporting these channels as they pop up.

PLEASE DO NOT HARASS YOUTUBE
Our immediate recommendation is for you to please NOT threaten or harass YouTube personnel about this.
We do not expect to get any personalized customer service for this investigation until after New Year’s Day. In the meantime we are dead in the water.
While writing this article, we were contacted by a good friend who appears to have a more direct access point to YouTube. Hopefully that will speed this up.
In the meantime, let’s now cover the cosmic aspects of this strange and depressing story in Section Two.
