This hit my feed this evening, as I am a little partial to the Paul Davids channel and especially his “sexy” chords, my vernacular. Anyway, this kind of synced in with @eric.lennon Mr Lennon’s low profile, don’t mention the artist or song title intro to his EAGLES song at the last OM !! There I said it
Seems there may be more to this than meets the eye. Yep The Eagles corporate might will take you out no questions asked but for all those other infringements, dig a little deeper.
I’ll add that I have no desire on monetizing the Madman’s channel and am ecstatic when folks rock up to take a listen. But interesting things going on and scams a plenty it would seem.
It does not matter about which technology or regulations are devised for anything it has always been the case that people with malicious intent will find ways to use it for their own good at the expense of others and I believe it will always be that way unfortunately.
Another case for finding your own voice on the instrument by writing your own riffs, jams and songs. Get the skills under your fingers and then play your own music your way. Change things up enough on your covers and you may avoid the dreaded youtube claim/strike.
To me a copyright claim against a video that has less than 5k views or so is just bonkers… what’s the actual point?
I did a few times since I have nothing to loose and managed to get it through, but again I have nothing to loose really if channel goes tango down. Can’t blame those popular guys about being anxious about it
Out of curiosity. Does this apply to all music performed by others on YT?
Or is it certaint band/artists that do this.
Most artist have covers, many have lots of covers.
Is it the artists themselfes that has commed up with this?
many songs are far «bigger» than the artist itself and «lives its own life»
just can not imagine Mr. Dave Grohl for example has any issues with people playing his stuff on YT…
