    I'm using Youtube videos for traffic and fast indexing. Basically what I do is I'm promoting music (legally, yes), I have a setup to create videos from Jpeg + MP3 and upload them to Youtube. The MP3 is a lo-fi watermarked preview.

    Everything is legitimate, but what I see a little risky is that I posted around 800 in the last day - and Youtube filled my inbox with e-mails like this one:

    Am I at any risk of suspension? I specify on all video's descriptions that all I do is promote music and I did not create the music (all that stuff).

    Well, when you say you're doing it legally, do you mean you have a license to post and promote the labels video/music on the web? These labels require you to have a license, or be an employee to be posting their artists music on YouTube. Without the license, they can and probably will eventually remove the video from your account and when that happens 3 times, you account will be suspended and all videos will be removed from YouTube.

    Even if you're posting the real video with the accurate song, it does not matter, they will still have it removed. They like to make money off ads on their artists music videos or promote their song through iTunes and Amazon and have all the viewers viewing one video, opposed to 100 of the same video from all different people and I don't blame them for that.

    Patience is key, my friend. Especially when you're asking a question about something so specific.

    i also received this kind of message when i use linkin park's "numb" as a background on a video. til now the vid is still up. maybe it is only a warning or a reminder that what you are using is being owned by someone and under copyrighted rights. and you will be in trouble if you use it without proper permission from the owner. (IMO)

    Well as far as I can see, Youtube already added ads to existing videos, and those ads probably contain the respective label's publisher ids.

    As for licensing, I only have the retailer's ToS which allows promotion (as opposed to redistribution) as long as samples remain watermarked.

    I've seen (on a different account) that when a label specifically prohibits this type of promotion, the video gets removed in a matter of minutes but for now I only got content-id match notices. So the limit is 3 videos? That's awful.

    I've gotten a number of these warnings lately, [in the past three months]. All of mines seem to be coming from a company called: BFM Digital.

    In my cases, all of the music used on my videos was purchased from...

    Code:
    http://www.footagefirm.com/
    Apparently, the companies filing these "POTENTIAL" copyright infringement are using low paid individuals who are filing these "POTENTIAL" copyright infringement en masse.

    I started to send this to my attorney and have him take a look at it but decided not to. I opted to see if YT or BFM Digital contacted me again and have yet to hear or receive anything.

    You can use other peeps music in background and stuff - you just will not be able to place ads on your vids.

    If a label really wants - they can have the video taken down though

    They already deleted 1 of my videos so I implemented a label and artists blacklisting system to make sure I never post any of their work again. I also bought 100 YT accounts and I'll be rotating those.

    Hopefully this will secure the problem.

    I get this a lot.

    I don't think it's anything to worry about. YouTube never say anything after that automated message.
