Copyright Trolls Strike Again! - Your video is blocked in some countries - YouTube


Well, the Copyright Trolls Strike Again! And this time it's at me!:( I have had this nice little video up for several years now. It's of the Christmas Show of 2009. Here in my Town. A mix of Video and Pics that I shot, in my Yard. At first, it had more video than music. I just had one song. Bing Cosby's White Christmas. But, the video kept on going after the song and I never liked that. But, everything was just fine with YouTube since 2009 till about 2011. Then, last year. I found some great old Christmas Music on Archive.org here (http://archive.org/details/AChristmasSlideShow-HappyChristmas2012.V1.AudioTrackIsBingCrosby) and here (http://archive.org/details/ChristmasCommandPerformance). So, I know that it is in the Public Domain and free for Public use. So, I added it and some more of my Pics to the Slide show in the Video to make it better. Since then, I've had this Copyright Notice on my YouTube Page. It's not Blocked all together. Just in Certain Countries. Why should I care. Well, this stops me from being able to Monetize my YouTube Page. Ya, Like I would actually make any money on it!... But, the thing I actually do care about, is... Everyone else get's to put up much longer videos. Up to an hour, if I remember right. And I'm still stuck wit the 10 minute limit, because of this, "Copyright Notice". And I have some long videos of me Replacing the Wheel Bearings on my 1976 Chevy Blazer 4x4. That I really want to put up. And I don't have time to Edit several days of video footage, down to 10 minute clips. Nor do I wan to. I have plenty of music of my own that I could use. I'm  a Singer Song Writer and have two Albums that I recorded and own the Copyrights on. I give my music away on my Web Site, at http://www.donsongs.com/. Check it out, if you like and download away!:) But, I really like the way the songs fit the video and the messages of the songs really go with it better than any of my music would. So, I could Contested the Copyright Claims. And actually a couple of them were released (see info below). But, most of them were not released. And this kills the whole deal. I could Contest them again. As it says on my Video Admin Page on YouTube. But, Check out what it says, when you click on the link!!!

"Appeal reinstated claim
Are you sure you want to appeal?
You will be required to provide your contact information to the claimant. An appeal will result in either: the release of a claim on your video OR a legal copyright notification from the claimant. In this event your video will be taken down and you will receive a copyright strike on your account. If you have received additional copyright strikes, this may suspend your YouTube account Learn more To appeal a reinstated claim, you'll be asked to verify your account, if you haven't already, and explain the basis for your appeal in detail."

So, I doubt that the rest of these Trolls will let go of that tiny little golden nugget. Even though, holding it stops them from being able to get their hands out of the Cookie Jar, long enough to even Eat the Cookie! They are cutting off the Ears of their Customers to Spite their own Faces! How's your Sales been since you started attacking your Customers!?!?!? So, thank you Copyright Trolls! For hounding the fun out of everyone on
YouTube and restricting things that you don't even Own!!!:) 

So, I guess I will end up taking the video down and Re-Editing it to go with my Own Music, after all...

Also, I found a new Beta Audio Editing Feature for YouTube Videos here (in my Admin area)...

http://www.youtube.com/audio?v=lFK5DscoEns&feature=mhsn

Looks like I could just delete one song by Peggy Lee. Which I know is in the Public Domain. If it works, that is. I know that this portion of my original Audio was one continuous Audio file. So, this Beta Audio editor would have to find the beginning and ending of one song in the midst of a non stop Medley of Songs. To get the Audio Edit right. Not likely, for an Automated Computer Audio Editing Online App. And Then the Trolls would be somewhat satisfied. I guess... As long as they get to Advertise on my Video. Advertising is not a Problem to me. But, this is a complete mess for sure!

Ok, I did it! I deleted the Peggy Lee song, Snow. Which actually has Bing Crosby and two other ladies from the Holiday Inn (White Christmas) Movie singing the song. Peggy Lee may have sung on the Sound Track. I don't know. But, I think it was the Actors in the Movie, singing in this recording. I remember it well, cause I've seen the movie many times. Ever since I was a kid. And I'm now 56. I can see the scene and hear it like I was watching the movie now. What a big bunch of K-Rap in the Snow!!! Soon, you will be able to watch my video with a big 2 minute blank Space in the Audio! Happy Holidays Trolls!!!

Those bastards. Seriously, how does posting a song made by a band in your video cause that band to lose money in anyway what-so-ever? If anything, some people watched your video, liked the music,and then became a fan of that band. By blocking your video, those copyright idiots just stopped that band from becoming a little more popular. *slow clap*
