Case 04: Uppercut

THE FAKE: In 2014 "Frankie" posts Uppercut to his website as a 2013 Level 3 Pictures production titled "Cuts & Bruises," giving himself credit as co-director and co-cinematographer.

Note: He had previously posted the film as his own work on various video platforms in 2013, but those instances of copyright infringement were not captured.
