Unauthorized YouTube postings of my titles

66 posts in this topic

Dozens of unauthorized YouTube postings of our music. Geez, it's hard enough to make this system work, but.....

I understand some of these were posted by "fans" but 2 hour programs to replicate a 2 cd set?

 Ugh.  There is a a form for submitting a copyright complaint, but I don't know how involved it is.  I looked and saw that Weasel Walter had posted a chunk of Nonaah; he should know better. :unsure:

I spent a couple of hours filling out the forms and got tired.

I need to fill out copyright forms to press cds and lps - why no proof of ownership for YouTube posters?

There is no option to report copyright infringement as a non-owner.  You can't even do something like put a checkmark on multiple videos and fill out one form.  I had to click on an infringing video (thus hearing a second of Nonaah before stopping play) just to pull up an option to report.  I know that YouTube (allegedly) wants to dissuade people from making false reports, but they also host a ton of unauthorized content and benefit from making the process more difficult.

Maybe you could authorize your kids/grandkids to act as your agents to do a quick search and report infringement whenever they are on YouTube?

I suppose this is a bit like those "Whack a Mole" games at amusement parks. As soon as you whack one, another pops up. And on and on it goes.

Must be incredibly frustrating.

Even the major corporations struggle to keep up, so go figure. 

Although when I want to rewatch Previn on Morecambe and Wise, here’s what I get:

 

This video contains content from BBC Studios, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.

 

 

 

Maybe you can see it even if I can’t:

I'd hope for a preview at the very least

Let me say this first: I fully understand you Chuck and you have every right to be mad about all these copyright violations and especially about the difficulty to get them removed (removing a fake account on Twitter is at least as difficult!)

But there is one upside on this: to me these YouTube ‘videos’ are a great way to listen to samples. And they have influenced my decisions in what to buy a lot. In fact: quite a lot of them made me want to buy the real product. So in some way in some cases: it’s a way of advertising too ;)

Amen. I fully respect anyone’s right to have uploads like this taken down. That said, MANY an album have I sought out a physical copy of, only after having found at least one or two full-length songs, more often than not from YouTube.

Advertising is generally defined in terms of a voluntarily directed act of promotion by the seller of a product using whatever methods/strategies/etc that said seller chooses.

If you're trying to get laid and somebody steals your dick pics off your phone and puts them up all over the webbynets, I don't think that you'd consider that as "free advertising", even if it did get you laid, unless, you know, you're a total slut or something, in which case you're probably giving it away already.

Sorry to be so blunt/crude, but the whole destruction/defilement of even the most basic forms of privacy by "social" media is not evolving well, and I damn sure don't expect it to end well.

I fully understand, respect, and agree with Chuck's stance.  But man, youtube postings like these, with the record companies doing the posting, sure do muddy the waters:

How are the waters muddied? That record company said ok (apparently), Chuck didn't.

Seems pretty simple to me.

Some examples of the material I complained about:

Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble Old/Quartet Sessions - 2 cds just short of 2 hours

Roscoe Mitchell Art Ensemble Congliptious - 3/4ths of the album

Roscoe Mitchell Nonaah - complete Willasau concert

Charles Tyler Saga of the Outlaws - complete

The search continues.

I think he means that if the record company itself is doing it, it must be okay. I can kind of see the logic: if the records companies don't want me to upload their shit to YT, they should set a good example. Of course this ignores the fact that the record company owns the music and can do what it wants with it.

it does indeed ignore that most basic truth.

That's the difference most people seem to forget.

I think (I don't really know) that record companies receive a payment from YouTube for any ad revenue.   Most YouTube posts  now seem to have ads attached at the beginning.  Also not sure, but I think that if you prove ownership you have the choice to receive the money or have the post taken down.

Is it time to start sticking this up on the streaming services yourself? At the very least it would be an interesting though no doubt laborious experiment. Would it stimulate sales or kill them? Short term vs long term?

A Nessa web series where Chuck talked a bit about a session and followed that with a clip would be great.

It may behoove you to send an message to the person(s) that posted your material and let them know you would like this taken down, and explain to them in a congenial tone as to why. I know someone tried going through YouTube to have stuff removed and it didn't do much. When he personally asked the seeders in a polite manner to stop and remove the postings, all obliged.

YouTube has removed 23 of my recordings in the last 4 days. If you follow their somewhat cumbersome guidelines they do follow through.

They were posted by a number of different folks.
