Fraudulent Copyright Claims
Sad thing is this Rumblefish is a tricky little fkr. They have artists that sample pieces out of iMovie then they lay claim to it, which in turn gets us flagged. Luckily, with iMovie at least, you can dispute the claim with a link to iMovie's TOS. It's real sneaky how some of these music companies are working.
If it makes you feel any better, I have a series of 5 videos on my channel showing how to change guitar strings. I used the exact same music in each video and uploaded them all within hours of each other. 2 of them got flagged for third party matches and the other 3, to this day, at least a year later, are still going strong. Go figure. The system isn't perfect. We can only hope that it gets better as time goes by. I know it's a hassle but you just have to be patient and try not to take it personally.
As we all know, the recent figures show that close to 80 hours of video are uploaded each minute on YouTube. There is no way on this earth that they can field a staff large enough to check each and every video going up. They have to rely on their algorithms. Unfortunately we get the sht end of the stick on that at times, but it is what it is. I'm with you 110% on YouTube never saying anything about anything. Changes are made, videos are taken down, adsense accounts are revoked, and all we get is an automated response that doesn't help us one bit. But, this falls into the staff situation again. There are too many videos and too many members for them to be able to give personal care to each and every one of us.
Keep your chin up, brother.
>> I provided You Tube with the link to rockitpro's website. (the company where I purchased my license.) AND EVEN COPY-PASTED WHAT IT READS ON THE VERY BOTTOM OF ROCKITPRO'S WEBSITE. PROVING EVEN MORE THAT "I DO" HV COMMERCIAL USE RIGHTS.
Only I am an music producer and all my content is created by myself originally no samples used whatsoever, music, video & artwork etc I create/synthesize them from scratch.
no 3rd party bought licenses, other than my software production tools in my studio which I purchased legally with their license to use of course.
I've had a claim from cd-baby stating a match, that I disputed in november 2012, and within 1-2weeks time I got a message that my content was approved.
now march 2013 status is still "monitoring for possible review" instead of "monetized"
other videos it states they're being monetized, although I'm not fully a youtube partner as I don't have an adsense account. They pay out only when you're on both I've read. And when accumulated enough revenue for youtube, they'll notice/present you with an adsense account, and paying out a bonus of what they have accumulated so far of your videos.
Today I uploaded something entirely new, fresh from mastering, and got a claim from cd baby again, of course again I dispute the claim
and on neither occasions does it even remotely relate to my content.
So do I keep disputing claims to everything that I upload that triggers a match?
That means forgetting about monetizing my videos altogether.
or could you advice me in other ways. is there a guide somewhere that explains the procedure for publishing your original work on youtube?
And most importantly if I disputed a claim, to content I hold the rights to, can they delete my video or channel? if this happens what would you advice me to do, start a new youtube channel, with a new mailbox, and re-upload them?
Any help or feedback will be appreciated,
Thank you for you're time ;)
