I'm very upset : our old video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72NcJC48iAQ is blocked in Germany because a f**king society is claiming rights ???? Come on, WE own the rights (via SACEM France) ! How dare they ? The most upsetting thing is that we NEVER could get the authoring rights that should have been payed to us for years !!! This is robbery ! So please, DO NOT claim rights BEFORE you're CERTAIN they're yours !!!

I understand your frustration and even anger at this.
Can you not get your record company or even solicitor to issue your copy of the rights and threaten the scummy bastards. :wait:

I agree. That just isn't right. And how are they even claiming rights anyway? It has YOUR music in it, and whoever or whatever company did the animation let you use it. So WTF?!

It's a common problem. Every time I upload a video of me singing an Amberian Dawn song on rock band to youtube I get WMG making claims on my videos. Problem is that WMG doesn't own rights to Amberian Dawn (not to mention it is my voice, but I'll let that slide).

It's all automated and usually WMG likes to claim everything, but they aren't the only ones.

What you need to do is file a dispute. Go to the video that has been claimed and click "View Copyright Info". Then click "I want to learn more about the dispute process". After that click "I have a valid reason to dispute this claim. Take me to the dispute form." From there you can choose the valid option that YOU (or label etc) own rights to the content that has been flagged for copyright. Generally that will clear it up.

Hope it helps! I get these a lot since I post Rock Band play videos. As an Amberian Dawn fan it irks me when WMG makes claims on their music as well so I always make sure to mention the correct label.

I finally discovered that they DO own the rights. :lol:

Our record label gave the rights to the distributor for electronic distribution. It's called Plastic Head Distribution.

Then Plastic Head signed a exclusive deal with IODA, a major distribution company for its entire catalog.

But generally, they don't block videos. They just put a link to a legal download site. They use Youtube as a promotional tool.

The video is blocked in Germany, because it's a total mess in that country with regards to authoring rights and music business...

Ah ok. Glad you figured it out. I don't believe that is the case with Amberian Dawn though as they are Spinefarm and that is part of Universal Music Group. :?

But yes, poor Germans. They are screwed over on so many things: music, video games and lots of online stuff.
