Protected music has been in my last videoDonnieBrasco wrote: ↑Sun Dec 03, 2017 5:55 pmI assume it is related to where you are from. I'm astonished myself that non of my videos got a copyrightstrike so far. I guess here in germany it has something to do with the deal the GEMA made with Youtube. Because the GEMA was very aggressive running wild on youtube, youtube/Google made a deal with them to not influencers because of GEMA-blocked videos. (The GEMA is a german organization that collects money in the name of musicians and artist. The "club" sometimes can get a real pain in the arse, esp. for club- and discoowners. They also abused their "power" on youtube for a long time.)
Another thought is that it depends on if you monetize your videos or not. Monetized videos might get earlier striked than non-monetized. I would never monetize my videos, even if i get 100k subs or more and might get a good amount of money through it, because it limits my creative freedom for the videos. I know a couple of letsplayers who keep popular music strictly out of their videos, because they fear videobans and to lose money.
As far as i know the advertising has nothing to do with popular music in the video. Only monetized videos should have ads at the start or in between.
btw: congrets to all that very good laptimes.
@Luny: Again thank you for posting my video.
@MadMan: I accidently pressed on quote than on edit. LOL and Sorry, please delete all posts except the last one.
and in the video manager that was visible.
I have made language in English and made a screen.
You can read if you have used protected music.
That's how the Gema and YT have ended their quarrels in Germany.
As it is in other countries, I am not, but think will be like
Here is my suggestion : render the song test with a low-quality cover.
This is done in 1-2 minutes.
Then upload to YT.
Wait a short time and look in the video manager if there are problems.
If something is not ok, then you can see.
Then delete the video again.
I know this is a bit of work, but that's the only way to tell what's in there
individual countries require the law.
