Why do I have a claim against music that is apparently in the Public Domain ??
0
I have a video that uses portions of the tune 'Gonna Make You Sweat (everybody Dance Now)' which was posted back in 2008 (in fact it is my very first video) & a company called InGrooves SME has filed a copyright claim against it & therefore the video is now blocked in all territories, HOWEVER according to 'commons.wikimedia.org' this song is 'is in the public domain because copyright of the typographical arrangement of this edition in the United Kingdom and Spain expired after twenty-five years of first public release.'.

I Live in the UK so my understanding is that I can use the song.
There are also many other videos on Youtube that ALSO use the song - some using the WHOLE song (mine only uses parts of the song - mainly chorus)

I don't/didn't monetize it, had no plans to - & it was purely for entertainment.

Why did I get the claim & is there any way to remove the block & get the video back up on my channel

I tried contacting the company using their 'Youtube Video Claim' link on their webpage but never got a reply, so I think they are just ignoring me

Can anyone explain why this has happened & what can I do to get the video back
(Incidentally - can't really change the music as the animation will only fit the music being played, if I used a Creative Commons or royalty free music it probably just wont match up & ruin the video)

so many misunderstandings in there.
  • First, "typographical arrangement" does not refer to music recordings, it merely refers to the layout of the text and images on a page
  • Second, YouTube is a worldwide site, so you can't just refer to a couple of countries.
  • Third, the copyright for music compositions in the UK is  'Life of the composer + 70 years' 
  • Fourth, the copyright for music recordings in the UK is 70 years
  • In the US, the copyright for sound recordings is 95 years. 
That song is definitely NOT in the public domain. As your song was released in 1990, the recording won't be in the public domain until 2085.

Seems like I was totally wrong about everything. Shows I'm just small fry doing the occasional video & not knowing anything about music & copyright

Still doesn't explain how there are hundreds of other videos on YouTube that using the song, yet those aren't 'claimed' & blocked. 

Is there ANY way I could use the music clips & not get blocked - do those other video know of a trick to bypass such claims?

The choice is up to the copyright owner, so you would have to ask them. They can choose to block some videos and not others. For example, they may block videos that use too much of their song, or they may block videos that use too little of the song. There can be any number of reasons.

How do you know other videos aren't blocked? You wouldn't see those because...they would be  blocked (this is known a survivorship bias)

@longzijun.
Perhaps there are videos that are blocked but if you search YouTube for the song in question, you can get results from individuals other than 'official music video'.. How did they not get caught? Is there some 'teick' they do to avoid getting caught? 

As for the company - over a year I've been sending a request/email to ask why only me & how may I get my video back, but as I said in op - they're just seem to be ignoring me
