sad thing is if its public, people think they can use it for themselves, you can either Put it on private or unembed the video.. Sent you a PM

if they just linked to your youtube they can yes, you have to disable embedding to prevent people from doing that, it's under your settings

it should remove it from their website. whenever people click on the video, it'll say "disabled".

from your drop down menu click on "video manager" then choose the "edit" button under whichever video you want to change. You'll see below the video to the right "Advanced settings" once you click that tab you'll see embedding to the right and you can uncheck it.
