What happened to the soundclick players on the posts?

Seems Soundclick has finally disabled the embedded player.

I notice overnight all the music links on this blog are gone. Here is a blog post on how much that affected my hits: https://anttismusic...

I started a reddit thread about this. .

Chime in!

https://www.reddit.com/r/youtube/comments/a1t07e/i_release_music_for_free_under_creative_commons_3/

Antti

Found the girl claiming my songs..

Yes. She is blatantly ripping me off. Putting songs on spotify and other stores and
claiming them as her on youtube..

https://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=13756324

My song "She Is Amish Girl" -

Play her song: "Dear or alive"

https://open.spotify.com/artist/4meRYQMDMijNfcTStkjP4i

Yes.. All of the songs on her popular playlist (no matter how crappy).. Are mine..

I would not mind it if she did not claim the music on youtube.. I do not care
if people use my music. Or even make money off it (good luck with that).. But please do not claim it
as if it was yours.

Sigh.

I wrote about this issue to KevinMacleod and he said he had about 50 instances like
this A WEEK.. So just keep on disputing the claims:

Antti

So more of my songs are being claimed..

Sigh..

Maybe I should not release my project files..

My response to Youtube.. (Once again)

English:

I would like content id for all my instrumental pieces:

https://www.soundclick.com/bands3/default.cfm?bandid=1277008

And songs: 

https://www.soundclick.com/bands3/default.cfm?bandid=678627

With creative commons 3.0 by lisense, so that anyone can use them for free
both in commercial and in any other use. 

At the moment at least one of my songs (Keep It Simple Stupid), has been 
claimed to belong to Rafaella Vilette according to your automatic detection: 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYY1_PQD4xE&t=5s

I have never even heard of this person. 

I make these every morning very fast. In hour, two. My music has been used 
for example by Kyle Le on his extremely popular travel vlog Kylele.net: 

https://www.youtube.com/user/kyleledotnet

His videos have been watched 37 million times and he has 146 thousand 
subscribers on his channel. 

This situation (that automatic detection detects my songs as those of someone else) 
is hurting my reputation.

Finnish:

Haluaisin content id'n kaikille instrumentaaleilleni:

https://www.soundclick.com/bands3/default.cfm?bandid=1277008

Ja lauluilleni:

https://www.soundclick.com/bands3/default.cfm?bandid=678627

Creative commons 3.0 by lisenssillä, niin että niitä voi ketä tahansa käyttää ilmaiseksi sekä kaupalliseen että kaikkeen muuhun käyttöön.

Tällä hetkellä ainakin yhden kappaleistani (keep it simple stupid) on väitetty kuuluvan Rafaella Villettelle teidän automaattisen tunnistuksen mukaan:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYY1_PQD4xE&t=5s

En ole koskaan edes kuullut herrasta.

Teen näitä joka aamu hyvin nopeasti, tunnissa kahdessa. Musiikkiani käyttää mm
Kyle Le erittäin suositulla matka vlogillaan kylele.net:

https://www.youtube.com/user/kyleledotnet

Hänen videoitaan on katsottu 37 miljoonaa kertaa ja hänellä on 146 tuhatta tilaajaa.

Tämä tilanne että automaattinen algoritminne tunnistaa laulujani toisten lauluiksi
vahingoittaa mainettani.

Answer from youtube.

"Hello,

Thank you for your interest in Content ID.

Content ID is a powerful tool and works best for content owners with large libraries of material to manage. If you think this describes you, please submit an application. We’re not able to grant access to everyone, but we consider each case individually and will let you know the outcome of your application. You may also wish to find a vendor that can manage Content ID on your behalf. Some are listed in our Creator Services Directory.
In the meantime, if you find re-uploads of your content on YouTube, you can always use the copyright takedown webform.

Regards,
The YouTube Legal Support Team"

What they accept as content is:

"Content ID acceptance is based on an evaluation of each applicant's actual need for the tools. Applicants must be able to provide evidence of the copyrighted content for which they control exclusive rights.
Content ID will match a user's reference content against every upload to YouTube. Therefore, applicants must have the exclusive rights to the material that is evaluated. Common examples of items that may not be exclusive to individuals include:
  • mashups, “best of”s, compilations, and remixes of other works
  • video gameplay, software visuals, trailers
  • unlicensed music and video
  • music or video that was licensed, but without exclusivity
  • recordings of performances (including concerts, events, speeches, shows)
If accepted to use the Content ID tools, applicants will be required to complete an agreement explicitly stating that only content with exclusive rights can be used as references. Additionally, accepted applicants will need to provide the geographic locations of exclusive ownership, if not worldwide.
Content ID applicants may be rejected if other tools better suit their needs. These other tools include the copyright notification web form and the Content Verification Program (CVP). More information about content management options may be found here."
So I guess I could claim my content.. And then allow people to use it.
I have to read more in to this..

GTG Jupiter 6 emulation at :

http://www.gtgsynths.com/plugins.htm

I noticed I had two stragglers still on spotify..

"She has got a slice of heaven" and "Every Tom Dick And Harry Knows".

Both of which were songs with vocals, which no one ever uses anyway..

The funny thing is that I could not find the first one on my discography at routenote..

I know I published it through them, but somehow they have lost it from my discography.

Doing all this, I realized I could have been a little less drastic and just removed the songs
from youtube, since that I think brings on the copyright claim.. But this way we can be sure.

Antti

So I sent fax to Youtube DMCA (Copyright department)

Hello!

My name is Antti Luode and I am a Finnish music producer.

I offer my songs for free for youtubers to use. They have been used most notably by
Kyle Le who has over 37 million views on his videos.

Lately I have heard that at least my song "keep it simple stupid", has been claimed by
Rafaella Villette. Here is a link to the song:

https://www.soundclick.com/bands3/?bandID=1277008&content=songinfo&songID=13759420

(I imagine you can convert these faxes to text)

here is a link to the offending video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYY1_PQD4xE&t=5s

I have heard that there was another youtuber who used my music and had a claim from the
same person too. I do not know if the song was the same.

I have 1860 instrumental pieces that I offer for free. I make one every morning,
a lot of them are not that great. But I am not copying anyone.

This does hurt my reputation.

I would like you to tell me how to keep this from happening in the future.

Yours

Respectfully

Antti Luode

PS: I sent you a email but it seems I got a canned response. Ie, the email
I got back had instructions how to act if the video was mine. Ie, no one read it.
I am the music producer who made the song that was supposed to be someone elses.

I included my email and phone number.. I guess now we'll wait..

Youtube does not even read their email concerning copyright.

I tried to contact youtube again, concerning someone claiming my song on a youtube video
that was not mine.

Here is  a reply from them at copyright@youtube.com . (I'll have my 2 cents afterwards)_

"Hello,
A copyright owner claimed content in your video using YouTube’s Content ID system. In most cases, although there may be ads on your video or it may be blocked in some countries, this won't affect your account as a whole. Content ID claims are not accompanied by copyright strikes, and won't result in suspension or termination of your channel.
You can find specifics of the policy applied to your video in the copyright notices section of your YouTube account. Once there, click the underlined link to the right of the video's Edit menu to learn more about the claim.
If you believe the claim was made in error, you can dispute it directly from that page at any time. Please understand that YouTube doesn't mediate copyright disputes. Once the dispute is filed, the copyright owner will be notified and they'll have 30 days to respond.
If you were previously monetizing your video, you may want to learn more about monetization during a Content ID dispute.
Regards,
The YouTube Legal Support Team

I would like you to look into what is going on! 

I make one song a day and have NEVER EVEN HEARD OF THIS GUY! 

This hurts my reputation.

I said clearly in the email that the video belongs to someone else. 

This is just a canned response. 

Sigh.. 

I guess I have to contact them by other means.
