Copyright Strikes....

Recommended Posts

Well, I just had a copyright strike come out the blue from allegedly "universal media group" the problem with that being is that universal music and guns and roses had been monetizing my video since the day it went up a few years ago. When I clicked contact the person making the claim it was a.webber1972@gmail.com somehow I don't think a.webber works for universal so I have put my channel on the line and sent a counter-notice. gonna back up my videos now.

It's such a bummer that this horseshit is still going on.

A.webber1972@gmail.com is a fake takedown artist. If you submit a counter notification you will win. He claims also to be from IFPI London as well. It may take a while since youtube/google is so slow in getting to counter notifications. It takes 10-15 business days minimum to wait if they respond to the counter notification. Even then you should send daily emails to google/youtube to see when the videos will be reinstated after the 15 business days expire . Anyone have a contact with Guns N Roses management to shut this stuff down? I cant believe this is still happening over a year later with the same email address. Who is this guy/person claiming to be a.webber1972@gmail.com?

No idea who that email belongs too, but at a guess I'd say it's one of the same couple of "fans" with nothing better to do than troll GNR fans. 

To answer your other question, yes, we've been in contact several times with members of GNR management. The situation has been explained clearly and repeatedly to them. They've made it clear that they just don't care enough to help the fans out.

In fact, it's even worse as it has been proven they are just lying about the whole situation, telling us that they have no clue about who's responsible is just plain bullshit. Sooner or later it will backfire on them

Yeah, it's absolutely ridiculous. While I hate that all of this is happening, I'm thankful for people like you who can keep track of it all.

I'd love for them to put that in a statement, not giving a shit about someone being threatened because they uploaded a low quality recording from a live gig. Absurd! If the channel also had Appetite for democracy in full as well as tons of bootlegs then A1 fire away and take down the site, phone videos are not equal to pro shots!

If this happened to another similarly sized band, lets say U2 or Metallica... they'd set their lawyers on the culprits and it would be over with.

Why are GNR not doing anything? because Axl gets loads of stick for his voice / appearance live and he / they know it. If there's no evidence, then people are none the wiser! Stupid position to take, the sensible thing would be get in shape and practice more... but that man still thinks everyone is against him, including his fans! 

The whole "don't talk about Axl, because you have no clue" is hilarious... such incompetence, I'm surprised they get anything done!

Every streaming platform has multiple Artist or Label Relations rep positions. If they wanted to contact and stop takedowns, they could either go through the label or reach out themselves. I’m sure they’d listen And try and find a solution to one of their biggest content makers...

However something tells me they are ok with all of this. Even if it wasn’t “sanctioned”
