Copyright Strikes....

This kind of bullshit makes me realise I'm not a fan of Guns N' Roses. I'm just a fan of the music. If this anti-fan behaviour is official/from Axl & co then I'll probably pirate the new album, despite being a hardcore fan. Seriously fuck you guys @Dexter @Fernando wake the fuck up. It's so awkward how everything is a mismanaged clusterfuck. Zero interaction. Izzy thanked the mygnr fans who support him...and he's not even in the band currently!

C-Can I-I please have the privilege of keeping my own footage or m-maybe we could buy official releases...no?...oh...

:facepalm:

 

I wonder if we had the internet around the 90s whether the band would have embraced their vids being circulated amongst the fans as some sort of cool underground music trading. Im sure current mgt are aware but dont give a shit. If a band like the grateful dead are aware and are fine with fans uploading content then it makes you wonder why someone on the gnr inside has an issue with gnr stuff. Even if gnr had their own paid subscription where for a fee you could download uploaded material.

Some of you are missing the point. This is a result of a loophole within YouTube itself. There is a very similar situation involving a Nascar fans channel, were the person behind that channel breaks down the process that explains the loophole. 

The fan upload Nascar races from the late 80's early 90's and that uploaded content was removed by YouTube. 

On doing some checking the person who lodged a copy right infringement was another person who has a YouTube Nascar fan site. On contacting Nascar, Nascar was unaware of the copy right complaint , did not have an issue with there content being uploaded and could not do anything about it as it was an issue involving YouTube and a third party. 

The person behind the Nascar fan site who had content removed from their site was surprised how simple it was for any person to claim and take down YouTube content. 

In this situation it is clear some take downloads my be official via UMG but be mindful that some take downs might not be from an authorised source or connected to the band, their management or record label. 

YouTube is currently having some BIG time issues with the way they are handling content. They have come under fire with letting things slip. I wouldn't be surprised if their algorithm is flagging things that shouldn't be removed.

Are they impersonating the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry aswell? We know who are the one's responsible for the YouTube takedowns, and it's not YouTube. You've been missing a lot if you think that.

And yes, I'm fully aware that  YouTube's algorithm sucks ass. But this is different. You can post a Gn'R video and keep it secret and nothing will happen, but the second after you post it on this forum or certain FB groups, bam, gone.

Who hit the account? Was it a takedown "Strike" notice?  Webber1972@gmail.com email address?

All I'm saying is that I wouldn't be surprised that YouTube is flagging things that shouldn't be removed. If you think GNR is removing every single thing then I don't know what to tell you. I still see a LOT of videos up on YouTube for GNR.

I had to delete all my videos because I did not want my account removed. This guy sent me a pm on nightrain with copyright bullshit.

His twitter feed is actually disgusting . He is unhinged and I am not going back to nightrain his "truth" is that we can't criticise some certain things that are handled and he will come after you. 

Walker sent my social media page to certian people when I was under 18 and I had to strengthen my security 

 

I reposted some Axl/DC videos with remastered audio I did and I was forced to take them down to protect my account.

What was the email address that sent the takedown notice?  You dont have to give exact email but a roundabout one.

Is there a list of everything taken down? I'd like to post it on my podcast page. 

I would like to know the email addresses that are sending the takedown notices from anyone in the group. Mine of which the idiot hit 52 videos was webber1972@gmail.com. Claimed to be with IFPILondon. The dude is in the United Kingdom or somewhere in Europe. Videos mostly were blocked in the US already.

Haha they took down my video of Witchita Lineman from a Texas show...this is dumb.

Who sent the email?  Was it a takedown notice with copyright strike or legal takedown with no strike.

As i said before UMG removed a lot of those demo's included in the box right before the box was announced, so they went manually through my channel blocking all content that was about to be released but UMG never striked me as you can see on this screenshot.

Please also note the Claimed by: UMG part
claim110.png 

In this next screenshot u can see UMG claiming a video but this time they choose to let is stay on my channel but they will monetize it, which is fine by me because i even didnt have the monetizing option turned on and nearly all my video's where monetized by UMG anyways

Please also note the Claimed by: UMG part

claim310.png

Then suddenly the IFPI comes and claims the same video and gives me a strike for it, which i find very strange because the IFPI works for companies as UMG making sure any YT money goes to the right copyright owner which in this case is UMG.

So here comes the IFPI overruling a decision made by the real content holder UMG and by doing this they make the company they work for LOOSE money.

Please note the Takedown issued by IFPI part

claim410.png  


So when that happened it raised some questions and I contacted the IFPI about it and at first, they didn't react at all but after multiple emails asking them how they could overrule a decision made by the one and only copyright holder they gave me some automated bullshit reply, not even responding to my original question. Ofcourse i replied with screenshots proving the overuling story but they never responded again. 

claim510.png

So the whole point in this is I understand UMG doesn't want stuff to be sold on Youtube and even if they don't plan on selling it but still want it gone from the tube im fine with that i don't owe any single copyright from Guns N' Roses material.

But be clear about because if i knew in the end they want it all gone i wouldnt have invested the time and effort in my channel but by monetizing almost all my vids they seemed to like the money offa it.

So it's about time  "someone to tell us what the fuck is going on Goddammit"

What email sent the takedown notice for the videos for this IFPI claim?  You would find that information in the email itself. I've never heard of 4 copyright strikes. The 3rd one and your account is suspended/terminated.  Also, best way to get rid of a copyright strike from IPFI is to call them directly. They actually answer the phone during the week Mon - Fri. Nothing gets done via email with them.

the owner of a "site that calls it self truth but is actually fake news" sent me a pm on nightrain a while back saying I couldn't remaster audio of a life recording of someone else. They were not even my videos lol I did not take credit for them. It was a takedown notice with a strike. I had a remaster i did of the acoustic video for November Rain before they released it and that was taken down by umg and it was actually umg. But the other videos were take down by the guy who must not be named.

He was always kind to me but after going through his  twitter and the way he behaved before a guy who was cleraly centrist really pissed me off so i blocked him on nightrain and everything else

I logged onto my youtube account for the first time in a while, and noticed my videos from Vegas 2016 had been removed.

What was the email that submitted the copyright takedown?  Did you get strikes?  Or was it a legal takedown?

The fact that they're definitely aware of the situation but clearly don't give enough of a fuck to even comment makes them cunts and/or oblivious and inept. They're so fucking useless.

I know what you mean. But it probably wouldn't achieve anything and maybe mygnr wants to maintain some level of civility and relationship however one sided it is.

I do think they should've given Axl a warning point when he came here though, apparently he was abusive to one of the staff or something. Would have been funny and might've garnered a sliver of respect from him. 

This is what I hate about celebrity and the internet. As a fan you're not on an equal playing field. And on the internet you come across pathetic little twerps like this copyright douchebag who I guaran-fucking-tee wouldn't have the balls to say and do the same things in real life.

This isnt just Guns n Roses. Plenty of concerts/songs i had from other artists have had their vids removed.

Think this is more of UMG and other recording companies doing than the bands themselves.
