"Matched third party content. Entity: rumblefish Content Type: Musical Composition", but no music in the video
And apparently youtube identified my video as containing copyrighted music from a company called rumblefish. I filed a dispute, and now I'm waiting for said company to respond to it. Is this a freak occurrence? I feel pretty violated by this, a mysterious entity claiming to own my content and apparently profiting from it with ads.
There are birds singing in the background in the video, could they own the rights to birdsong?
Is this a freak occurrence?
NO! It is a very common occurrence. It is a well-known error. One person has had to file over 100 disputes for mistaken bird sounds. For some reason Google is reluctant to fix this so companies like rumblefish take advantage of it to gain fraudulent income (google makes something also).
Companies registering reference file with the CID are required to manually review any disputed video but rumblefish is one of many companies who just automatically confirm the content regardless of how ridiculous the match is.
Now then, when a dispute is filed advertisements are cancelled until the dispute is answered. There are advertisements on your video so before we go further I need to know the status of your dispute. Please post the notice found on your “Copyright Info” page. It might be something like “These content owners have reviewed your video and confirmed their claims to some or all of its content: Entity: rumblefish Content Type: Sound Recording”
All content owners have reviewed your video and confirmed their claims to some or all of its content:
- Entity: rumblefish Content Type: Musical Composition
Well then, that was a quick review (and confirmation). Most likely they don’t have a clue what’s in your video. Google gives them what was matched and where it occurred in you video but they obviously didn’t check. Google is finished at this point so your only recourse (short of a lawsuit) is to contact rumblefish and remind them of their error. Not surprisingly, they are usually quick to correct it.
Give them the URL to your video, state that you own all of the audio and video that it contains and ask them to release their claim.
