ARTISTS BEWARE [the short version]
Avoid collaborations with dubious monetized YouTube channel GeekyComTV
I’ve held my tongue about this channel for almost a month and I can’t frickin’ do it anymore. This is a call out post.
To make a long story short, this user has been posting videos for over a year now, using miraculous art. Although in some cases he has asked permission to repost, he began monetizing [making money off of] his videos at some point without notifying any of the artists.
None of the artists agreed to monetization.
@maristoryart is only one of many artists that reported him upon finding the monetization, but for some reason, Geeky has focused on her as the reason his channel is being reported [for a second time at least, since this isn’t the first account he has lost]…
GeekyComTV’s creator has resorted to blackmail, to defamation, to actual threats, and finally to identity theft, in an attempt to bully mari and others into complying with his wishes.
It’s gross and it is NOT okay.
[^^^ just 20 of the 200+ videos being monetized]
[WHY? part 2: the long version]
And now the entire thing. Strap in and get ready to get real damn mad…
