Are Other YouTubers are Getting Multiple FRAUDULENT Copyright Claims from Illustrated Sound Music? 0 Recommended Answers 12 Replies 41 Upvotes

Today I received 4 email notifications of FRAUDULENT Copyright/Content claims from YouTube. The company/person making these false and bogus claims is Illustrated Sound Music. 

Each and every video has a seemingly random 30 second section selected by Illustrated Sound Music who claims it is their content? But, these are original, live streamed PS4 GTA Online gameplay videos and the claimed sections have no music or commercial content on which they can base a valid claim (one is a car's engine sound in a race I created, another is my character running through the bunker - can the sound of foot steps be copyrighted? Another is the CEO office secretary talking as my character leaves the office and takes the elevator to the roof - no music. I am not sure how my original live stream content with no music can be claimed by someone else?). 

How do we get YouTube to set up way to report Illustrated Sound Music for FRAUD and HARASSMENT of this sort? 

Why is YouTube Policy on the side of the people/companies like Illustrated Sound Music who use what should be categorized as CRIMINAL HARASSMENT and REPEATED, BOGUS, FRAUDULENT CLAIMS? 

It seems YouTube should be more friendly towards the YouTube Creators (who have done nothing wrong) instead of the people/companies like Illustrated Sound Music who are ABUSING, MISS-USING and HARASSING honest creators.

I just got two videos hit by them and that probably won't be all. Made them private immediately. Never had this happen before so not sure how to approach it. Guessing I just dispute the claim like I regularly would?

Edit 1: Looking into it more, it's pretty sketchy. You can see what's happening by seeing what content Youtube says your video is infringing on and then reading the first question on their FAQ here: 

Basically, Illustrated Sound seems to be a sketchy MCN that anyone can join. When someone joins, all the videos they add are added to Illustrated Sounds content ID and the newly joined channel owner can claim any content that matches what they've uploaded. 

In my case it looks like a small gaming channel (3.3k subs) joined, and so any gaming cutscenes of BGM that my videos use that match up to their videos will be claimed automatically while youtube processes the content ID match. 

It's absolutely ridiculous that Youtube still automatically sends ad revenue to scammers like this instead of disabling ads or holding it until the dispute is over, especially when the claimer has to provide NO proof that they own anything I'm kind surprise scammers haven't overerloaded this system so much that  youtube's would be forced to do something about it.

At the very least content creators should have a simillar set of options as the claimers for what happens when a video is claimed (allow ads from the claimer,  make the video non-viewable, etc )

Edit 2: Went to file a complaint, but held back since my first time dealing with a scam and Youtube requires you to enter your first and last legal name. WTF, I'm not submitting that so youtube can pass it along with who knows what other personal information to these people.

Oh my god, i received over 20 fraudulent claims from another gaming youtube channel through this Illustrated Sound Music facade over the last couple days.  Mostly "Gustavo Canine Games".

Unbelievable, Youtube should take actions for those fraudulent claims.

This is all the fraudulent claiming i received from them on behalf of other gaming channel just over the last 2 days, basically if you've played the same game as anyone hiding behind this fake claiming organization, you'll get spammed.

For whatever reason, youtube cares so little about the rampant misuse of copyright claims... this isn't the first time someone's done this scam, and youtubes shrugged.

For the love of god, when there are some mechanics to protect the creators from all those scam networks, its getting out hands. Like disputing 30 videos singlehandedly every 3 weeks
