You want to put the music in your videos. Do you charge for your videos? FYI - All music distributed in the U.S. is controlled by the Harry Fox Agency in NYC. They'll refer you elsewhere if you will also need associated licenses, like ASCAP, etc. HFA is also responsible for distributing "master recordings" - the stuff they want you to use when you sell licensed music.
The big get around there is use clips <= 30 seconds, and list the copyright owners in your credits. Most folks in the U.S. prefer to get music licenses in Australia - they use one agency to take care of everything, here it can involved 5 different agencies.
I would like to hear more specifics if you can.
A copyright owner using Content ID claimed some material in your video.
This is not a copyright strike. This claim does not affect your account status.
There are either ads running on your video, with the revenue going to the copyright owner, or the copyright owner is receiving stats about your video’s views.
- Video title: Naples Wear Orange Event - June 8th 2019
- Copyrighted content: Indie Rock with Dramatic Opening -ss
- Claimed by: SourceAudio Holdings (masters)
If there are no problems, you don’t need to take any action. You don't need to delete your video.
If something went wrong and the copyright owner or our system made a mistake, we have a dispute process. Only use it if you’re confident you have the rights to use all the content in your video.
Need copyright-safe songs?
When choosing music for your next video, you can avoid copyright-related issues by picking a song from the YouTube Audio Library. We're adding new tracks all the time!
- The YouTube Team
Storyblocks seems to provide all the videos? They also provide the bulk of the images? Graphic Stock provides images as well. I don’t know who or how many sources provide the audio? I don’t subscribe, so I’ve only rummaged around a bit in the site.
Adobe’s Premiere Elements. The dirt cheap version of Premiere Pro by comparison. Comes with music tracks as well. The audios designed so the program can auto conform the score to match the duration of any video. You can even select the level of intensity of the music. Some musical instruments may be dropped, or their volumes adjusted to change the intensity of a score.
Why might this matter?
Most video editors have a version of this feature. Corel Video Studio and Premier Elements once carried one called SmartSound. I thought it was especially cool because you could select and exclude what instruments were used in any given song. It was the most versatile of any auto-music features I’ve ever used.
However, SmartSound was dropped by Corel and Adobe for other services “Long Ago”. I found one post in the Adobe forum regarding the subject. It suggests that SmartSound "Not Adobe" didn't lift a finger to protect its customers/Contact You-Tube in these situations. https://forums.adobe.com/message/10887654#10887654
I believe it may explain why Corel and Adobe dumped them. To protect their customers. But my evidence is slim.
Unfortunately, if this is the case. It’s the actual
providers of the audio, that need to get involved. With TechSmith being a 3rd
wheel, their “Technically” free from responsibility.
Just like this forum. If your child is researching a subject on Sunday morning. TechSmith has no responsibility for what your child may encounter or download as a result of want “Get Satisfaction” has allowed. Can’t blame them, thanks to a 3rd wheel status. It’s Get Satisfactions fault. One could argue. It’s also a “Personal Responsibility Matter” Yes, you must take some responsibility. For what your children do online.
I don’t know what the problem is with the stock audio that comes with Camtasia either? TechSmith takes Zero responsibility for it as well. People have been posting and complaining about it for years. This post regarding you-tube copyright violations is 6 years old. In short, they tell the poster. You’re on your own. Contact you-tube and deal with it.https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/copyright-123fck
My suggestion is never use their music. It’s a problem waiting to happen. The number of posts regarding this is long in tooth.
TechSmith probably could have resolved this years ago? Yet haven’t. If Adobe and Corel can. Why can’t TechSmith?
Attach this to a $200 a Year subscription? If I were you, I’d start by seeking a full refund.Find out where that leads. See if you can find music that doesn’t rack up You Tube violations.
Or continue on the same path you’re on.
For what it’s worth. That’s my outside looking in take on it.
I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. Unfortunately, this is an issue with the copyright holder and YouTube's Content ID system. As we don't make the music ourselves, only license it, other parties may have copyright on that material. In this case, the copyright holders are using YouTube's Content ID system to verify that you are in fact licensed to be using that music. As you can see from the notice you received, it's not an actual strike, but does require you to prove that you have the rights to use it. Please see the article below for more information on that:
YouTube has flagged my video with your music. What do I do?
For now, please continue disputing those claims, and let us know if you receive any push-back from YouTube or the copyright holders. In the meantime, we'll bring this up with Storyblocks, and see if there's anything else we can do to help improve this process. Thanks!
