    UPDATE (as taken from my twitter)

    Things are a bit muddy.
    - I do have written permission from the artist to use the claimed song.
    - However; the song uses a sample that has been picked up by Warners content ID bot. So I am being claimed for a sample, not the song.

    I'm still hoping we can resolve this.
    And take this as a lesson from me:
    Not only should you ensure you have complete rights to the music you are using for your videos, but also ensure that you ask about any samples that have been used. Otherwise you could end up in this situation (And you wouldn't want that).
    Will do a video on Tuesday explaining. I am taking a day off tomorrow!

    Most importantly this has been a growing problem with youtube. Over the last year or so I've seen many videos of my favorite channels face similar problems. The new algorithms used are hurting content creators and forcing censorship of different channels. On a side not Mumbo you really should have worn a stash I mean its kinda your thing. It was kinda disappointing you didnt at least wear a fake stash. I know this is a serious topic that effects your livelihood but by staying in character I believe that your important message would have reached even further. Just my honest opinion. Honestly I think its time someone replaced youtube and their new gestapo rules. On the flip side maybe its time to branch out a little to secure your much needed paycheck.

  • Luke Gabriel Balgan

    I can only imagine when the comment section gets copyright-claimed. Among the several millions of comments, perhaps billions even, the chance that no two comments are similar is basically 0. And if the whole 3 strikes you're out thing extends to taking down the account altogether, all accounts that currently exist are 100% screwed. Let's hope that doesn't happen.

    The system is so broken, like the people that claim videos should actually show proof that they have the rights to claim a video, RU-clip should actually watch over these things since they can have bad outcomes for a channel but no RU-clip is just lazy

    RU-clip doesn't care about who made what, best example is famous musician TheFatRat. His music is being taken down for just being a free source. Silent clips can be taken down for music copyright violation and be happy that your channel is still up, I had a rdm video on a rdm channel. The channel is gone. With no influence you are fucked on RU-clip.

    This is why Copyright law needs to be INNOCENT until proven guilty instead of what is currently the case where it is GUILTY until PROVEN innocent.

    RU-clip is not going to care. RU-clip has a monopoly on individually produced video content, since all the viewers are there because all the creators are there because all the viewers are there. Therefore, they don't have to worry about what anyone thinks, because they can't leave.

    The only way I see this changing is if droves of youtubers decide to drop youtube and switch to another platform. then, youtube would lose a significant amount of revenue, and decide to change the system for their money back.

  • I haven't showered in 6 weeks, but

    A thought, can you just remove the song (mute it) from your intro? Will that stop these leeches from sapping your revenue?

    ok, I've seen this shit, but my fucking god!!
    RU-clip JUST WAKE UP! Company clearly abusing the copyright system NOW!! 400 videos claimed in 2 hours, that are at least 10-20 minutes long, they are just claiming everything left and right, knowing there will be NO CONSEQUENCES!!
    just do something about it! there are thousands tons of people who already said how to fix the system, by adding fine for false claim and etc.
    I don't even know why I'm writing this!. it won't even be read by anyone in youtube company, fuck I just really wanna this to stop, it really is absurd now.

    This has been happening for years now, youtube content creators going on a bout copyrights problem on the platform.
    but NONE of them will leave the platform, NONE of them get together and form their own platform.
    No they all want to keep using the FREE platform youtube because it's easy.
    Please stop whining about copyright problems when you keep posting your videos on a platform known for copyright problems.
