    Hi everyone,
    I was doing a method I read on this form and I recently got this email about the video I posted.

    Your video "VIDEO NAME" has been identified by YouTube's Content Identification program as containing copyrighted content which UMG claims is theirs.

    Your video "VIDEO NAME" is still available because UMG does not object to this content appearing on YouTube at this time. As long as UMG has a claim on your video, they will receive public statistics about your video, such as number of views. Viewers may also see advertising on your video's page.

    Claim Details:

    Copyright owner: UMG
    Content claimed: Some or all of the audio and visual content
    Policy: Allow this content to remain on YouTube.


    Place advertisements on this video's watch page.

    Applies to these locations:
    Everywhere

    UMG claimed this content as a part of the YouTube Content Identification program. YouTube allows partners to review YouTube videos for content to which they own the rights. Partners may use our automated video / audio matching system to identify their content, or they may manually review videos.

    If you believe that this claim was made in error, or that you are otherwise authorized to use the content at issue, you can dispute this claim with UMG and view other options in the Video ID Matches section of your YouTube account. Please note that YouTube does not mediate copyright disputes between content owners. Learn more about video identification disputes.

    Sincerely,
    The YouTube Content Identification Team



    Does that happen to everyone or am I in some hot water here?

    I think you're fine, since they said your video can remain on Youtube.

    Interesting but what if they come back later and say, okay now you have a million views on our video and you used it to promote your product, so give us a licensing fee of x cents per view?

    I sort of preferred it when they just deleted the video. At least you know your liabilities are likely to disappear when the video does.

    It's a good thing, you'll notice let retards ask "where is the description?" for some reason lol (unless you are branding vids, then it's really non issue)

    I dont think they can come back at you later. I was rather surprised universal let people do this (it does make sense they do more publicity for free). But if you were to edit the video and upload it they might have a problem. Though I edited some with a watermark and they still let me put it up.

    What happens is when they identify the video belonging to UMG you see an advertisment where the above the video description so they are the ones banking off the google content network ads and your the one loosing visitors to your website because your url in the description is below the flashing attractive ad :p
