Warner Music Group + UMG Bogus Claims
This is the second time around now, probably around 8 months apart that I have received absolute nonsense bogus copyright infringement claims on a 100% originally created video of mine that contains absolutely 0 music and is 100% my own voice speaking throughout the video on the topic: "Jobs During Coronavirus", first by Universal Music Group and around 8 months later by Warner Music Group. Both these massive companies were forced to retract their ludicrous bogus claims and release my video indefinitely from their ludicrous bogus claims.
For your information, this was not a YouTube issue, the video got flagged on Facebook where I posted it on my own personal Facebook Business Page. UMG + Warner Music Group claimed that 30 seconds of my video contained their content? My reply in my dispute was more or less "What are you smoking? What is your claim? What 30 seconds? My video contains no music, it is 100% my voice speaking throughout the video and 100% my own original created video".
Action against UMG + Warner Music Group?
So the result on both occassions was that my video got blocked worldwide until I filed my dispute and they had time to investigate it to release my video from their bogus claims. Is it not so very interesting that these massive companies can just do whatever they want, make ludicrous copyright claims as they go on their merry way via their very clunky automated software, obviously flagging content it should not be flagging, cost you and me a lot of money in the process and what compensation do you and I get for the financial damages they have caused through their bogus claims? The answer is 0. Yet, did it swing the other way, they would have probably taken you and I to court and sued us for thousands of dollars.
Just imagine I make a bogus copyright infringement claim on one of their videos that cost them thousands in the process. I will certainly get sued for thousands of dollars for making false copyright infringement claims.
So what is the consequence for UMG and Warner Music Group going around making false claims of copyright infringement on the online marketer/online entrepreneur's videos like yours and mine? The answer is probably, nothing.
Do you think that there is anything that you and I the small online marketer/entrepreneur can do to bring these massive corporations to order and face the consequences for their wreckless and unjust behaviour? Or is it a matter of the rich and powerful always getting away with supressing and bullying the little guy without any reprimand, consequence or justice?
Ps. Should you be interested to see my video: "Jobs During Coronavirus" just to see for yourself how ludicrous these bogus claims were, you are welcome to navigate to my YouTube channel which you will find posted in my WA dedicated area under my profile on the right hand side.
