I filed complaint notifications for all but the last two, because I am waiting for the person to read my messages.

The person with the first four clips outright said "no" and swore at me.

so, yeah.

What exactly did they steal? Videos that were recorded from the TV?

Sorry, but that isn't illegal, and it isn't theft. It's actually illegal to record things off of tv and post them online for other people to watch...

I'm not saying that this situation is right. I'm just saying that it probably isn't a big deal.

Yes, it is legal. I'm not claiming I own winx, it is for the fans. It is just as legal as a fandub/sub, iffy.

But they clearly took the episodes from kel (via dark on veoh)..

Good news is they were removed.

Even if you aren't asking for money, if you don't have permission from the creator it is considered illegal. That is why a lot of anime gets taken down on youtube and everything. The creator, or whoever holds the rights to the series, finds out that someone is uploading their work illegally and has the site taken down.

But as far as I can tell, that isn't the case with winx, so long as it is not 4kids. I wouldn't touch 4kids fecal matter with a twelve meter stick

Nope, it's still considered copyright infringement.
Also, even if you aren't showing the 4kids version, 4kids could still get involved.

For example: YEARS ago. A guy was making a quake mod using the DBZ characters. It was called "Bid for Power."
Funimation shut them down and threatened to sue. It was a free mod, and it is perfectly legal to mod the game...however, dbz does not belong to them, and even if it is free, they do not have the right to distribute anything related to the franchise.

I agree with Ranma, 4kids could definitely get involved. I had saved links to old Rai English episodes on Ytube, and it now says they've been taken down because 4kids (yes, it clearly mentions them) doesn't allow this content to be broadcast in my country. And that really irked me, 'cause it's not even their version of Winx, but they still stepped in. >_>

I was checking out Michael's Winx Club website and he's found out some interesting news in regards to 4Kids licensing. Since the subject was brought up I thought I would let you guys know. Apparently 4Kids acquired the rights to another asian cartoon this fall "Dragon Ball Z Kai", and have decided to create a cartoon block tentatively named "Toonzai" at this stage. This means that the future of non asian cartoons like Huntik and Winx Club at this stage is in doubt for season 4 this fall, but by no means decided, since the cartoon block is the one currently airing Winx Club in the USA.

If 4Kids don't renew the rights and licensing for Winx Club then this may mean a couple of things:
First: Would 4Kids would then lose the right to take the video's of the episodes off youtube (and wherever else they may have done so)?, but that's only if and I'm unsure about the legalities of it all.

Second: As you all know, us Aussies only use to get the 4Kids version and with season 4 having aired in rai english now, it may just be an indicator of what might happen with 4Kids, but like I said: there isn't anything set in stone at this stage.

Well that sucks. 4kids does the only English dub there is of Huntik.

But I don't know. They've released previews, like, recently...
