I have a video I made on Youtube with a Strokes song playing in the background and it got banned in Germany
Hope this helps, Freeda.
I don't mind adds. I just want my video up there. How do I get them to allow it on with adds?
There's a distinction between uploading a video that YOU created that happens to have someone else's audio vs. wholesale uploading a work that is someone else's IP.
Basically, unless you own the rights, you don't get to decide whether or not something goes up on Youtube.
All videos with the SLIGHTEST bit of music get banned in Germany. This law passed in 2009 I believe. Many protested against it but it still passed. I have a video of a videogame I made myself that has a 8 second bit of music in it, it got banned in Germany over the music.
In effect, 90% of youtube is blocked in Germany. I wonder, how do they get around this? They after all, the most populous nation in Europe.
