so youtube is dumb 
20th-Jan-2009 10:09 am

One of my youtube videos has been muted. They took away the audio for copyright reasons...

The reason they are dumb is not just because this is a ridiculous way of dealing with the copyright problem, but mostly because it was the only video I have where the song was not put on after. It just happened to be playing in the background :P

My youtube videos are just bullshit so this doesn't affect me very much, but I feel for the people who really put a lot of effort into it and are more serious with their stuff there...

dduudeee u shouldn't so quick to judge copyrighhhtt.. It has lots of problems and i prefer the CC licences but people who are serious just need to buy rights to it or use copyright free music. Copyright is what helps you and I earn a living and stopping people making money off all these lovely photos that you post up

oh hey i know

but i still think this is a ridiculous way of dealing with it.

i think the record companies should turn all these videos into advertisements instead of silencing them...

Sometimes they do do that. I think it might depend on the artist concerned - on one of my videos they said they'd keep up the song I used (really can't remember what it was) as long as the artist got money from the ads or something.

Funny how they told me this after the vid was made private lol..

They should do that more then. I get questions from time to time about the music in my videos. Don't they get how this is making their songs more popular?

The likes of Avex Trax, who have Ayumi Hamasaki, Koda Kumi, Namie Amuro and other popular singers/groups in Japan, are always deleting music videos from Youtube, yet the label itself doesn't have an official channel for some reason. They offer no alternative whenever asking Youtube to delete these videos. Well, I suppose you can buy editions of the albums/singles with the videos on them, but people should be able to just watch the video online. It's essentially international promotion regardless of whether the video could be considered art or not.

Considering it was just playing in the background in your video, i think it's unfair to mute it. Boo!

People who report videos have no life. Or maybe the artist reported it shrugs.

20th-Jan-2009 11:09 pm (UTC) - Your vids aren't BS...
Your videos are fun and quirky. The thing I enjoy the most is your music selections that fit so well with the video. Copyright infringment is a problem but what Youtube did is extreme in this case. After all you can watch entire movies for example "Twilight" cut into several segments and they still appear on Youtube...it does suck what they did to you and now I will have to check and see which one you are talking about. Live! FU YT I'm glad they left Ramdom Tokyo Clips alone...I like to dance to that one in my bedroom. hehe

I don't like youtube namely because it doesn't accept my mp4 format... the final product is 25% of the actual image. I hate myspace, but they're the only one's who can host my mp4s with no problem :(

Luv ur feet
