My videos are somehow on this site without my personal consent!! How do I remove them?

My brother and I have a YouTube channel that we upload short spoofs of films to. It's not a serious thing, and it's only primarily intended to be watched by friends and family. We make no profit from it, and we're making no attempts to boost the popularity of said channel.

However, after a comment on one of our videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_VZlIC2di8&list=UULIODz2CNlMD4WvToUQCZQw), I became aware that profiles of these videos, as well as actor profiles of me and my brother, had been posted on this website without any form of prior consent. I received no notification of this and I did not create the profiles on this website myself. I'm going to provide links below to all the video/actor profiles that were uploaded.

I'm asking if there's any way I can have these removed. It's completely wrong that these videos should be on such a well-known website without any form of prior consent, and it seems obvious that another person has created these profiles without my permission. Whereas I know it may be hard to locate the exact person, all I want is these profiles to be removed. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

P.S. My idea was to take my YouTube channel down, but if I did that then there would be no proof that my channel was the original channel and creator of my film content. Plus, why should I have to take it down?

My YouTube channel, from which all videos in question (as well as their date stamps) can be accessed: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLIODz2CNlMD4WvToUQCZQw

My personal 'actor profile': http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6588071/?ref_=tt_ov_st

My brother's 'actor profile': http://www.imdb.com/name/nm6588072/?ref_=tt_ov_st

From both of the actor profiles above, all the video profiles in question can be accessed in the credits section of the actor profiles.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Nothing on the database has had consent given nor asked for.  If you make a film and it's accessible to the public, any data pertaining to it is public information and can be listed on IMDb.

If you look at the rules for getting a film accepted, http://www.imdb.com/help/show_leaf?titletopfaq&ref_=hlp_brws and find that the titles were not eligible for display on IMDb, you can request deletion of the titles as described on the page for How to I correct or delete a title?

If the titles are removed from the site, the corresponding credits on name pages will also be removed automatically.  You don't have to request deletion on both the title and cast/crew's pages.

You seem to have posted twice.  Can you delete the duplicate post?

Hey, you're famous, but guess what, you're not famous enough to throw hissy fits. Get used to it and be thankful. Countless people with more talent than you have died trying.
