  • So, whose fault is it? I think most music publishers don’t know that this is happening b/c youtube ContentID system is AUTOMATICALLY falsely matching them. However, recently, music publishers started to DENY my disputes and push it to go to APPEAL. That means my videos could stay in limbo for up to 60 days! That’s after I showed EVIDENCE. Only when I told them I’ll pursue legal action, they let go of the claim. My most recent video, the 13th month update for Kartoffel is in appeal right now. That’s after I linked my evidence in the initial dispute. I just wanted to say some publishers were speedy and professional about false claims. Some have let go of false claims as little as in 8 hours or so. But then there were others who would take the entire 30 days and let the disputes expire on their own. And everyone in between. Copyrighted music on youtube: Basically, you can’t cover the Beatles b/c they are copyrighted. You can’t sing, play guitar, hum, whistle, wine glass, nor burp The Beatles music b/c it’s illegal and the ContentID system could match it. HOWEVER, ContentID SHOULD NOT match rhythms, notes, melody, nor anything else for PUBLIC DOMAIN CLASSICAL MUSIC. ContentID program should ONLY MATCH EXACT RECORDINGS for the public domain music, b/c only the recordings can be copyrighted, not the notes and the rhythms. ContentID should have a DATABASE of PUBLIC DOMAIN MUSIC, and should be smart enough to recognize public domain music. And only match EXACT RECORDINGS, not similar recordings of it. I’ve contacted youtube around 30 times and only got generic replies. This is the single biggest reason why I begin to really dislike youtube. It’s like being punished 60+ times for something I didn’t do wrong. ESwindow feels like it’s a platform where you’re punished for doing the right thing. It takes all the FUN out of it. This is the single biggest reason that kills motivation, inspiration, and fun out of making youtube videos for me. I used to LOVE youtube and making videos was fun. Now, there have been more than few instances where I would actually use the opposite word to describe this platform. I really didn’t want to make this video. I’ve contemplated for over a year on this. But nothing’s been fixed. And some music publishers seem to be pushing harder to take what’s not theirs. I understand that in the past, youtubers were at fault for using copyrighted content. ESwindowrs basically stole from artists. However, that’s not an excuse to go after EVERYONE including people who’ve never infringed copyright, and who aren’t right now.

    • @Matej Kolečáni yes we should get rid of it as now there is no big risk to distribute something. For example:before the internet you had to distribute physical copies of a book by ships or post. The ship used up fuel that costed to deliver you the books. The ship could have got lost or sank. once a book was profuced it was risky to distribute it becouse of all the things that could interfere with the physical transportation of it. Now that the internet exists publishing houses and the distribution sistem is no longer needed as the book can be uploaded instantly at a smaller or non existent price without the need of mass production and the time and resouces it takes to produce it.

    • It's the parents due negligence for not reading any contracts over and signing things they don't understand. It's happening a lot with tiptoe where people are signing over rights to videos without reading into it properly. More fool them.

    • ESwindows copyright system is retarded because on one of my other channels the publishers of a audiobook tried to claim that something of theirs was in my video but what they had said was in my video was a audiobook and my video had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH A AUDIOBOOK! when we told ESwindow about their audiobook claim the people who put the claim on IMMEDIATELY DROPPED THE CLAIM and I celebrated!

  • youtube/google wont fix it unless it affects their money. ESwindow is not affected by this in anyway unless they dont have a way to implement it and create a claim system. While it says that you can dispute the claim within 5 days and the money will be held until the matter is settled. The person who made the false claim can say "nah, this is mine. screw fair use" and reject the dispute or youtube may not do anything to review it. They ended up making a video about it, youtube i mean, saying that they fight it. ( ). i dont fully believe this, and could just be something to satisfy the public. Well it doesnt look like that worked too well since in the comments i only saw one person in about the first set who defended youtube. the rest of what i saw were personal stories, and people pointing out some inconsistencies. Like any other business, youtube has money in its mind, not the creators. The creators are the way they make money, and so many come and go that there are plenty of people for them to leech off of. even if a few people complain, nothing much they can do to punish youtube for it. I mean youtubes is pretty much a monopoly, they still have competition but its like a gaint vs a spec of dust. I have to say youtube needs competition to improve its policies for us the consumers and the creators.

  • I have similar issues on videos of shows I've done with adults performing, where they get claimed by the original artist's company for singing against a purchased and licensed backing track. ContentID is really not sophisticated at all, and it sucks and hurts creators. Fortunately those are only up for the folks in the shows to see, and are unlisted videos anyway, not something I'm trying to monetize, but still. I feel this pain.

These groups do not give up unjustified claims even if they warn against litigation. The fraud scheme falsely claims that the piano sheets arranged and issued in Japan are fraud group publications.

  • I kind of feel like this is a consequence of the new system they implemented. To where they were trying to crack down on people not giving proper credit for music and video usage. Along with improper permissions. Yet the reverse has happened now to where companies are turning this into a cash cow by instead stealing other people's work and making it hell to prove otherwise. It's really ironic honestly and shows the lengths people will go for a quick buck and claim it's their property and so forth when you confront them about it.

That’s so much time dedication, if you’re even a beginner pianist you’d know how much time is necessary to learn all the fingerings, the necessary habits, to learn basic music theory and how to read the notes Don’t be tricked by the first few measures. This piece is by no means slow. It’s a crazed flurry of nearly Moto perpetuo sixteenth notes. This isn’t even just an issue for that piece in the video. Every single dang musician there took time and unmeasurable effort to learn their designated piece. The fact it gets stolen is shameful.

  • This has happened on my channel quite a few times. The Chemical Brothers publishers' algorithm (or whoever owns it) claimed a simple synth sound - a standard filter sweep. The management were great and sorted it in a couple of days, but as you say others don't respond and its up to you to sort it out. The same sweep was also claimed by others, it's such a standard sound. Comments included people having claims for using a drum machine, or using sample libraries, as well as random sounds! It's endemic, and when you think about how many false claims are being made there is a whole lot of cash being collected illegally from millions of videos. I only made this video (for me also it's not my usual style of upload) as the single sound was getting hammered!
