Hey so I'm gonna keep this short and hopefully someone very quickly can help me.
So i have a youtube channel (don't wanna say what it is for personal reasons)
basically i uploaded a montage , almost like a motivation video. I spend 4-5 hours making this video.

Anyway this guy then downloads my video, takes out the visual part, like the video part of it and uses the audio of it. also he uses 2 of my videos. just takes out the footage and uses the audio of it all

he cut the audio like only twice to make it as if he "remixed" it as he said.
he just added photos and very short videos onto of the audio.
I filed a report to youtube that stated that he infringed my copyright cause he used my audio

Youtube removed the video.
Now he sent me a email saying he is gonna send me to court because of this.
He got a strike for the video getting removed and also told me to release the strike or else he will bring me into court. He said he will personally take me to court.

? i don't understand these people. he says it was fair use but the whole video was with my audio from another video and he didn't credit me at all.

I think he got like 5k views on the video as well..

what can i do? or what should i do? is this in my favour?

Other answer:

vic:
Tell him to go for it. He will lose, and you might even make a fair amount of money out of the whole thing. Youtube sided with you, because you are in the right here. If anything, you could threaten to take him to court.
Mark:
He can't do anything. For 1 he didn't own the video that was taken down, and 2 Your not personally responsible for the video being deleted… YouTube is.

Just ignore this content stealing troll.

Orla C:
Let him take you to court – he will lose. YouTube removed his videos because THEIR legal team agreed with YOU.

His bluster is only at attempt to bully you. Tell him to go right ahead, that your lawyer is looking forward to receiving payment from him for this.

Duncan:
When you upload content to YouTube you automatically grant a license for anyone to do anything they want with it…

7. Content

7.2 You retain all of your ownership rights in your Content, but you are required to grant limited licence rights to YouTube and other users of the Service. These are described in paragraph 8 of these Terms (Rights you licence).

8. Rights you licence
8.1 When you upload or post Content to YouTube, you grant:

to each user of the Service, a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free licence to access your Content through the Service, and to use, reproduce, distribute, prepare derivative works of, display and perform such Content to the extent permitted by the functionality of the Service and under these Terms.

It is not clear why Youtube removed the other persons videos as the Terms explicitly allow them to "prepare derivative works of " your video.

But his legal argument would be with YouTube and not you personally.

There is no requirement for hime to credit your work – it is polite to do so but legally meaningless.

We only have your interpretation of events and there seems to be some aspect of the saga missing.

Firestormer:
He is full of cr ap and trying to bluff you. For a start, Youtube deleted his video, not you. And they would not have done so without being sure of the copyright infringement.
He is just a thief
williegetsdrunk:
When you go to court, take your originals with you; they should be time stamped well enough for everyone to determine who came first. The counter sue the crap out of him.
