    I am new to the whole Youtube traffic scene but I am certainly enjoying it so far :D

    My question is, do you guys get a lot of copyright emails? I got one shortly after uploading and it said that I could keep the video up as long as there was an ad placed next to the video. At first I thought it was a BH guy but it seems it was a music company that owned the rights to the song in the background.

    They must have tagged the video at some point before I re-upped it for it to be caught so quickly. Anyway, it won't slow me down but I thought I should give the heads up to anyone starting out.

    Yeah, that happens from time to time. The more unique you make the video by editing it, the less you will come across that, but it really doesn't change anything.

    Yeah, that was me....LOL

    Serious. Try using remixes or instrumentals of songs.
    I discovered these are harder for YT to identify as copyrighted material.

    Also try to avoid songs that are in the charts right now.

    That is if you´re just using it for background music.
    If you want to promote the ringtone of the song that´s a different story.

    Lol...I will certainly do that when I start creating my own videos. Right now I am just downloading and tagging existing videos so I guess I will have to take the good with the bad for now ;)
