YouTube's copyright system is broken

Warner Chappell have copyright claimed 25% of my content in 2 hours and there isn't much I can do about it.

    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!

    At first I thought something was up when I noticed completely unrelated videos in my recommended section when watching some videos (i.e. I could be watching stream highlights from a streamer meant for 18+ viewers, and the videos in the recommendation section could be Kid Toys videos from a bunch of foreign users who don't speak English, never touched those videos in my life), but now that I see that this copyright system has flaws, BR-channel and maybe even Google really need to fix this algorithm. It clearly isn't working at all. Only thing that it does help is finding a video from many years back that suddenly gets a large influx of views, which causes it to appear in my recommended section on the home page. Everything else needs to be looked at a bit more.

    I have a video on my channel of a tribute show I was at claimed by the same arseholes and there is no copyright content in it. It is a live AC/DC tribute with no studio clips just the songs Bonny, Highway to Hell and For Those About to Rock. And yes those songs are copyrighted but Warner Chappel has no right over them. The record is under George Young and Harry Vanda not bloody dimwits at this company just saying "hey, that's music I think we own that"

    There should be a penalty for anyone who wrongly claims someone else's stuff and against BR-channel for allowing it. Something needs to be done about BR-channel. They are starting to turn into a crappy website. Automated strikes, banning those whose views are different from theirs, demonetizing on ridiculous grounds and more asinine things. If I had to talent and money I would make a new website to contend with BR-channel. Google however, sees no problems with the way things are run.

    How it works summed up on my knowledge: People can have 1 singular video similar to a small part of any video, allowing them to manually or over ai copyright claim a video (or if they are a dick they can strike it, but that makes them no free money) and a big company can literally turn a channel into a money slave for no reason, Even if you can prove that they are placing a claim on something they don't even own. Unless you call in BR-channel itself, trying to remove them me of these claims will send a request TO THE PEOPLE THAT PLACED THE CLAIM asking to have it removed, they are given 2 options, remove the claim or not.... is that even a question? The Defendant is also Judge AND Jury in a case. Unless you can find enough heart in a person soulless enough to be doing this anyways, your gonna need BR-channel which takes AN ENTIRE MONTH for this, and it's literally the most broken fucking garbage. Who says "Hey lets make it easier on ourselves dealing with copyright allowing companies to just instantly place a claim, then having a small quick AI check if it's related, putting it on hold, if they want it removed, they can just send it to the company, have them look over it, and review if they made a false claim. What could go wrong?" In conclusion, BR-channel headquarters are bitch ass motherfuckers who don't understand what taking advantage over a broken system is. So never use a song that has some degree of copyright for now, even if you have an agreement to use them, some false company that made a song similar can steal your entire life income for some quick pocket change, taking up to several months to fix. Edit: a potential fix to this could be to have the owner of the song confront what source material the claimer is using depending on if they ripped that song to rip everyone that has it for free money out of literally everyone because they are a fucking soulless piece of shit that has no sympathy or empathy towards others (sorry it's just way too many of the channels I follow are suffering from this oversight) Also in the progress BR-channel could maybe add a fee for proven false claims (by themselves to prevent people from in the request to remove the claim ask themselves if they want to pay money for having to steal money, or if anything have them select that option to help preventing this mess altogether and fix this fucking garbage.) Basically just sue this "company" in real life and not BR-channel I mean REAL FUCKING LIFE HERE. You literally can sue them, for actually even more than the amount they are stealing, also since it's mainly this specific company doing this confront BR-channel and have them destroy this company since they are ILLEGALLY abusing a copyright system to steal money and maybe even steal their life back in the process, along with many others who have suffered from them. And get BR-channel to fix this immediately it's been going on for over a year now so for the love of God, just fix it BR-channel for fuck sake. Man I went a bit over the top with this... I guess "article" Other Edit: Oh, also Disney copyright claimed someone's (I forgot) video for Bach music, after attempting to have them remove it they replied "We own Bach" This is illegal so fix this BR-channel And yes, I know I am repetitive, it's just so many things are wrong with this.

    I know I'm not the first one to say this, but: Saying that system is biased has just earned my "understatement of the century" award. 400+ false claims --> no problem! 3 false rebuttals --> you're out, "liar!" How did no one at BR-channel notice the impending catastrophe?!?!? Copyright claims and rebuttals should follow the same policy. Three strikes out of potantially hundreds of thousands of videos seems a bit unforgiving as well, especially when you have to wait a month to even know if you did the first one correctly. A percentage rule would make MUCH more sense. Also, what ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Where have we ever seen that before, besides virtually every democratic government ever? (begin sarcasm) Clearly such a widespread, long-established system must be broken. (end sarcasm) Seriously, BR-channel, investigate the copyright claims before threatening videos, because (begin sarcasm) every copyright claim is honest. (end sarcasm) Should I boycott BR-channel or stay to support wrongly-accused creators like Mumbo?

    Yesterday a video of mine was taken down because it apparently had contents of Warner Chapell. It was a Stream where i played Fallout 76 with commentary. I imagine their bot or whatever recognized a song owned from warner chapell, when it played on the Pip-Boy-Radio in the game. So yeah ... it's frankly not my fault, because Bethesda included that (or these?) songs in that game, and they most likely own a licence for that. I don't know how's the situation with that but ... is that even legit? I mean that must mean, they are allowed to claim videos from everyone who uploads videos of that game where their music plays ingame randomly. That's just crazy. I mean WTF am i supposed to do to prevent another claim? I'm not allowed to play the ingame-radio or what? Wow what the fuck am i supposed to do then, if i ever plan, to upload GTA Gameplay? Do i have to be afraid, everytime i steal a car and a song plays in the radio? That Copyright situation is so f'd up man. I wanna punch a wall, if i just think about the new EU copyright-law that will be realized within the next two years. It will just get worse. We are entering a dark age for the web.
