Any BS copyright claim stories?

For those who don't know (most of you, I was never one of the most popular YTPers), I've been on YouTube since summer 2006, and my oldest YTP dates to March 2007, so in the worst case scenario I have a lot to lose.

Just a few minutes ago I disputed a claim on a video of mine involving a public domain source (Space Thunder Kids). I've had plenty of claims over the years, all of which I've had to just live with because of the legal grey area in which YTP's, YTPMV's and AMV's reside. Although this latest one is obviously bogus, and thus I know I'm in the right (for once, fair use considerations aside), YouTube's bolded warning about possible channel annihilation if a claim is deemed "fraudulent" shook me a bit. I'm not about to let copyright trolls kill off the channel I've been building for over a decade.

Does anyone else have a bullshit copyright claim story or two to share?

 

UPDATE: Claim released!

the distribution company that does the Colin & Brad DVD special took this video down a few years ago... it's clearly not taken from the DVD.

That's pretty dirty of them. Glad you got it resolved.

And now I'm hungry for a baked potato.

I haven't gotten any copyright strikes yet. The most I've had to deal with is Warner Bros using a BLOCKED WORLDWIDE content ID on one of my videos, which I've had to dispute twice. They were after me because the compilation video of my second tennis match with AshcrementVII had footage of Mad Max: Fury Road in it. Both times, I disputed it sourcing Fair Use legal doctrine under the Parody clause, and both times they relinquished their claim in under a few hours. The most annoying part is the sneaky sods tried reclaiming it after it was successfully disputed the first time around. Thankfully, they haven't tried for a third round.

Nice to know that the defense of fair use via parody apparently works for YTP. Coincidentally, WB filed a monetization claim on my oldest surviving YTP that I never bothered disputing.

Oh also once I made a Peppa Pig video that was of the "WHAT MUSIC ARE YOU INTO? I LIKE THIS, IT'S VERY GROWN UP" variety, and it got 14,000 views, then it got taken down. Counter claimed it with the usual defense, got it back up. Two months later it gets taken back down again, I message the people and they're like "you used music with swear words, if the video didn't have that we'd just content-ID it" and I was like "daaaaamn" so I deleted the video and they retracted their claim. It was a waste of time and stupid as fuck but it ended up alright. I don't think that video is allowed to see the light of day anymore though.

I'm fine with Content IDs. They can have the monetisation rights as far as I'm concerned. I ain't using them, and as long as I still get to keep my video up, I'm dandy. Also the joke's on them considering YouTube's absolute joke of a system. They won't make a dime off my dinky little channel hehehe.

L-O-fucking-L. I always suspected saving face had more to do with some takedowns than simple greed.
There goes my plans to create Swiper the Fox Makes Violent Love to Peppa Pig.

It's definitely preferable to actually having your videos' very existence on YT challenged. I wouldn't have disputed this latest one were it not a scam.

I once had a Horrid Henry YTP taken down during my first year on YT, and I don’t know why but I think the reason was due to the title I’ve gave it. The title was Horrid Henry Gets Abandoned by his Abusive Parents, and that got taken down presumably for that reason. I think you have to be careful naming your videos, just in case they’ll get removed by someone for “copyright” (I’m looking at you Kidz Clips).

One YTP I made of some potty training video back in 2010 got taken down for copyright reasons and I never backed it up, so it's lost to the sands of time. Most of the humor was "ha ha hoo ha I made this cartoon for two year olds say naughty words" so it's no huge loss.

I've not had any videos of mine taken down so far (touch wood it stays like that), but I have had some content IDs slapped on, and while most of them don't affect me whatsoever, a couple are blocked in certain countries, mostly on the very few PMVs I made before and around the time I started making YTP.

Shush. Every vanished YTP is a huge loss. :(

Seeing videos blocked but only in certain countries is interesting. My first YTPMV was blocked just yesterday in six countries (not including the UK, incidentally) but since one of them was the one I live in I can't download my own fuckin upload...

Is it really? Because I had a video blocked worldwide years ago that I need the world to see again...

You need to do that regardless of the site when it comes to counter claims. But on the super copyrightless, superFREE vid.me, a Drake & Josh video gets taken down for copyright. It sucks?!!!!!!!
