Any of ya'll had an issue with copyrighted song on YouTube? I uploaded a surf vid this summer and got an email yesterday saying the song was copyrighted and the artist (Jimmy Buffet) had requested it be deleted.. <BR>I found that kinda odd.. Would think a youtube vid not having any commercial value would be an issue... I know I have seen tons of youtube vids with copyrighted songs in them.. <BR>weird..

It does have commercial value on YouTube because people come to their website because of the videos. It may not be of any value to you (unless you included some kind of sponsor or hyperlink), but it definitely helps YouTube. I'm more curious as to whether or not Jimmy Buffet himself is browsing YouTube and looking for copyright violators! <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0>

No kidding Dave! It would be cool to know Jimmy personally viewed a video of mine and asked that I remove his song. Huge JB fan, so I would change it out of respect with no complaints. <BR> <BR>But we all know that this probably is not the case. Most likely a record company bot that ID's unlicensed content.

I think Nate is correct on the Bot thing.. I am guessing that when you load a video and it is compressed they have software that sort of sequences it like the Verizon software that allows you to play a song to your phone and connect to their vcast system and it will recognize the song and tell you what it is. <BR>I got a warning back in the summer that was similar that came the next am after uploading video that cited that the song was copyrighted but was ok to use as long as it was not commercial. <BR>I also tried to upload a video to photobucket.com with music in it and it would not upload due to copyrighted music..

I got the same issue from both youtube and facebook. I didnt think it was a problem since Im not making money off them. I even give song credits. Kinda sucks.

Technically, once you upload the videos to facebook, it becomes that site's property, and to prevent themselves from being sued, they have to take down the video. I've had that issue from facebook, but never from youtube.

I had my summer 2008 wakeboard video removed from YouTube and Facebook. The song was summertime by sublime and I was kinda disappointed because I put so much time into it and then it gets deleted but whatever.

what if you leave some background noise in behind the music? would that make it so the bots cant find it? like how skateboard videos always leave in the natural sound underneath the music.

homedawg678 12-15-2008 4:05 PM

I don't think so. I tried changing the pitch of it slightly so that maybe it wouldn't be directly linked to the actual song but it got removed right after upload.
