|A Thief Has taken Out "Google Authorship" over my youtube channel||TheGnomeWhisperer||8/8/12 8:04 AM|
I googled my youtube channel name "TheGnomeWhisperer" and was stunned to find "google Authorship" had been taken out over all of my videos by "Susan Fratichelly" a total stranger. I had never heard of "google authorship" until that moment.
All my videos are copyrighted to me and I am a part of the YouTube adsense programme and eligible to recieve money for my videos.
I have been a member of google+ for quite some time and its logo appears on my youtube page.
It is a serious security breach by google to have allowed someone to take "google authorship" out over my work.
I have contacted google over 24 hours ago, but have recieved no reply.
I have joined "google authorship" in the hope it would correct the theft of my work. It hasn't.
I have enclosed a copy of "google search" showing what has transpired.
Google, you have to fix this security breach before it becomes an epidemic.!
If anyone reading this post has had the same problem and managed to rectify it, could you share your knowledge with me.

I would suggest not just wait for Google to fix the issue. You better file the abuse here: http://support.google.com/webmasters/bin/request.py?contact_type=rich_snippets_spam

If he/she also copied your videos, you can also file with Google a DMCA report choosing for YouTube here: http://support.google.com/bin/static.py?hl=en&ts=1114905&page=ts.cs
