GUEST,Guest Tech: Advice please - Youtube copyright claim (35) RE: Tech: Advice please - Youtube copyright claim 17 Apr 19


i re-iterate songwriters, publishers, record companies, owners of video works (photographers, and visual media owners), have the right to be paid and protect copyright - and can order take downs. Apart from artistic mash ups etc.   Then there is the auto-bot claims of matches - which can be defective. In Europe a directive has just been passed which will make these social media platforms responsible for breaches of copyright (called Article 13). No-one is yet sure how it'll work and when it will be fully implemented. There are synch agencies who are a nightmare to deal with and who supply 'Youtube' and their streaming services with millions of tracks, supposedly on an official basis.   Some of these companies have been assigned tracks by record companies, but its hit and miss as to which hold correct matches and whether the claim was valid in the first place and whether the synch agencies are breaching some writers rights in favour of the supplier of the track who sometimes may be paying nothing to the artist or writer due to incorrect data. Their software can create false sound matches, and the information they hold isn't always correct.   Youtube favour these monster paymasters, synch agencies like Orchard, Believe, In-Grooves - and often err on their side.   Any human can fill in a form with a take down as well, if their rights are breached, but the large agencies hold a lot of power and sway with 'youtube'. The three strikes system, and you lose your creator's account is very unfair in its weighting. The synch agencies get away with errors galore and sometimes theft - and they are protected by 'youtube'.
