Someone is trying to get my newest YouTube video taken down for false copyright claims.

I even made sure that the sound effects used in this video were legal to use for commercial purposes.

More proof:

http://www.freesound.org/people/jobro/sounds/35686/
http://www.freesound.org/people/swim...sounds/165196/
http://www.freesound.org/people/XxBirdoxX/sounds/52293/
http://www.freesound.org/people/digi.../sounds/57608/

All of the above samples are perfectly legal for commercial use. Whoever is trying to get rid of my video should have know that, and so should YouTube.

Honestly with how copyright laws are it's easier for a site to just remove the content and then investigate later. That's how an entire section of the site retraction watch got taken down from it's server.

Then why didn't they take my video down? Does this mean I might win against this fraud?

Nice little video.

I've spent a good few years dealing with intellectual copyright law over my years in the entertainment industry.


I had a read over the terms and condition of freesound.

In short, your best off just getting sounds from somewhere else.

Free distribution rights are given to 'freesound' and third parties, i.e. You. Whomever uploaded the sound in the first place still has primary copyright over that sound, However, because they've uploaded it to freesound, they agree that it can be used by third parties for their own projects. You are free to use and distribute this sound in any way you see fit.

 


The person who associated a work with this deed has dedicated
the work to the public domain by waiving all of his or her rights to
the work worldwide under copyright law, including all related and
neighboring rights, to the extent allowed by law.

You can copy, modify, distribute and perform the work, even
for commercial purposes, all without asking permission.

 

Quite why someone would upoad a sound and then not expect it to be used by a third party is a bit weird, but hey, some people are a bit weird!

 

IF this video went viral and IF it generated lots of money for you and IF the guy who originally made the sounds could prove that his sounds were primarily responsible for the video's succes, and IF a judge could even be bothered to look at this case, then the original copyright owner might have something to compain about. But until that time, you've nothing to worry about. In any case, the copyright owner has already waved his rights by uploading the sounds in the first place

 

In my opinion, the sounds are too short to even warrant a copyright, and if the guy who uploaded them is so protective; why did he upload them in the first place?

 

Try useing a different site, or better still, create your own sound effects, it's quite fun.

If you insist, but what's a good way to create the sound of a skull cracking or bludgeoning (like she did to that chicken)?

 

Also, how can I make my own jungle bird chorus recording without flying to Brazil or Congo?

 

I used the Song Remover on YouTube to get rid of the "copyrighted" track anyway.
