GUEST,Rossey Tech: Advice please - Youtube copyright claim (35) RE: Tech: Advice please - Youtube copyright claim 23 May 19


Was it a recording or your own version? If it's an artist's recording then it sometimes involves the rights to circulate the recording. Licenses are required (synch rights), and they introduced automatching. The copyright on the song is a separate right to the recording itself. These distribution agencies like the Orchard claim to own the recording rights to millions of songs. but often create mismatches. Much of the time they just put an autoclaim on and allow the video to stand if they can put adverts over it, when they feel like. Then there is the separate rights on the song or tune itself.. Anybody can issue a take down on youtube if they own any part, be it the song, tune, publishing, recording or visual image. For the most part the big agencies just want adverts put over your video. But their matching software is deeply flawed and they often miscredit songs and misidentify them.
