YouTube Copyright Warning
Just curious, did anyone ever get a copyright notice like this after posting a YouTube video:Your video "Timour the Tartar", may have content that is owned or licensed by rumblefish and Music Publishing Rights Collecting Society, but itís still available on YouTube! In some cases, ads may appear next to it.This claim is not penalizing your account status. Visit your Copyright Notices page for more details on the policy applied to your video.
I can't imagine that Timour the Tartar is owned or licensed by anyone since it dates back at least a hundred years. I visited the YouTube copyright notices page but there were no details on why.
I contested their claim.
Looking at the Music Publishing Rights Collecting Society Facebook page here:https://www.facebook.com/pages/Music-Publishing-Rights-Collecting-Society/138959132819890?sk=info
It almost sounds like a some sort of scam:
"You get the pleasure of posting videos
We get the pleasure of making money from your videos
It's a win-win situation :)"
Checking further, this has happened to others before. The Music Publishing Rights Collecting Society reference likely is a scam:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VWtBmlu0mA
The rumblefish reference appears to be more legitimate and is described here:https://rumblefish.com/id/youtube-content-id.php
My read on it is that there is some type of software algorithm that scans the music and pattern matched a portion of it to something similar that is under copyright.
I now notice that the warning has now been removed from the video in YouTube video manager, so contesting it must have caused it to be manually reviewed and the warning lifted.What amazes me is that the software algorithm recognized something I did as actual music!!!
