Today I got a very nice letter from YouTube saying that one of my videos has a copyright violation and that it has been removed. And it only took them since March 2006 to catch it.
The offending video is the ultrasound of ET and it's 40 seconds long. I know I used a "real song" but is this really a good use of your time when people are uploading television show to YouTube?
They did offer me the opportunity to switch out the audio with a licensed music with was fast, simple and got my video reposted on YouTube.
So you can see the audio swapped version below. But you know the really funny thing? You can find the song I used Batidinha by Antonio Carlos Jobim on YouTube with way more views and posted recently.
So let this be a lesson to you that they'll find you. That's why you might as well use some creative commons music and let the music industry die.
If you're interested here is the song I used in my video. I found the entire song on YouTube.
