    Hi

    The videos uploaded on my channel are remixes of mainstream music artists. The remixes are not for profit, purely to showcase the kind of remix work I do. But there have been a a few instances where the video has been blocked worldwide due to copyright infringement. This has just happened on a video which had been up for about three weeks. I am aware of copyright issues on YouTube and most of the time the remix work is not blocked and the video remains up.

    Before anyone posts and says 'upload something original' or 'try pitching it', the object of the channel is to showcase the remixing of mainstream music and pitching the song compromises the quality of the video.

    The videos are essentially a still picture of said artist and the audio is our own instruments along with the original vocal from the artist.

    What I do not understand is, there are pages upon pages of unofficial remixes of the same artist still up by other people, some have been up longer. So why does ours get blocked worldwide, yet dozens of others are allowed to remain?

    Does it make any difference if one writes 'Copyright Infringement not intended' in the description...and could purchasing views from Fiverr have caused this to happen?

    Any advice appreciated, because the videos are not for profit, purely to offer a creative take on an artist's song.

    Purchasing views must have done but not sure!

    That doesnt make sense though because I have used the same Fiverr seller for several other videos and these have not been blocked. The video did not even have that many views, we are talking about 2000 views.

    Even more confused now. From what I have read, it says if your video is blocked for copyright reasons, you receive a strike...yet the account shows no strikes and is apparently in good standing.

    Please can anyone shed any light on this?
