    If you remix a music track, and upload it to YouTube, will they remove it?

    highly unlikely unless the video goes viral, and even then as long as you state it's a remix or " " artist,they probably will not care

    If you change the speed of the song, can it be called remix and will they take it down because copyright? Thanks!

    You can state whatever you want, won't change a thing.

    If you upload a remix to youtube and don't have the written permission of the original copyright holders to publicize it, they can take it down & there's nothing you can do about it.

    depends on the artist/record label. I know if you try and post your own remix to any Calvin Harris tracks, they wont be up long, and I know that one from experience.

    if it is moderately well known u will get a song id copyright notice from youtube...from that point its the labels discretion if it gets removed or is subject to fees

    happened about 2 years ago to me...and the video still stands

    You will likely be able to post the song but will not be able to monetize the video via Adsense, for example. It will simply flag it as "video matched third party content". It is up to the record label's discretion as to whether or not they allow it to stand. In some cases, it may be blocked in some countries...or worldwide. It just depends. If the remix completely fools the YT/Google algo into thinking that it's a completely different song, you're golden. But don't count on it. :)

    My buddy likes to dj and he has 8 or 9 mixes up that are about 5 minutes each withj 3 or 4 songs per remix in them. They have been up 4ever but he does not monetize them.

    Yeah, you're kind of mixing up two separate questions.

    1) Do you have the right to? No. Just no. No qualifications there.

    2) Will YT take it down? Unlikely, but with the music key contractual changes brewing, it's all likely to be a dead issue soon as they won't take ANY infringement down, but rather automatically monetize it for the artist you took it from. They've been inching toward that with content ID for some time now.

    Frankly if a remix can't even fool contentID, it likely wasn't remixed much.

    I really agree on that :). I'm using acapellas when Im' doing my remixes so they are really remixed.
    But the thing is if I could use contentID for my remix.
    My son did a remix and put it on routenote.com. He earn about $120 from Youtube. They use ContentID.

    I think a lot of you guys got it twisted. We have something called "Fair use" which means if you're remixing a song for fun or "unofficially" and you're not making any money what so ever off of it you're good. Whether it stays online or not has a lot of variables. Remember unless its an official remix you cant legally profit off it it(unless you feel like universal music group drying you out in court in legal fees). If its a song from before 1980 theres a huge chance it will be deleted and you will receive a copyright strike, if its a song that did really really well in the charts the past 1 year you will definitely receive a copyright strike and it will be deleted. Everything else that stays up forever the labels and artists want you to remix because it means free promotion to them. If you want to make money off of an unofficial remix, good luck. If you get caught you shot yourself in the foot and titanic'd your career. If anyone important sues you, itll most likely be the first thing on google when people google you.

    You own the copyright or you're an official remixer of the track
