No I don't mean my account has been hacked...but I'm hacked. I'm really, really hacked off with youTube. Ok not so much with youTube as with GoDigital Media Group.
I received an email earlier today (Tuesday) that said my latest video "may have content that is owned or licensed by GoDigital Media Group." May have content?!? The video had me talking and a waltz from Chopin! Any copywrite there ever was on Chopin has long since expired...and I downloaded it from freeplaymusic.com...which means it's legal to use in any way I choose. So if GoDigital decides to pursue this and have the audio removed from my video I will be filing a dispute claim.
What really chaps my hide (forgive the saying...I am from Oklahoma) is that they choose that particular video. The one that is just me showing pictures of my life. There are a number of videos on my youTube channel that could probably get called on for copywrite infringement because they were made for educational use and the copywrite laws apply differently to that. But instead they go after my tag video...which BTW I was going to use the Martina McBride song Anyway as the soundtrack, but didn't because I was afraid of using a copywrited song...see where that got me...
So yeah...I'm mad right now and wanted to rant about it. I will be less angry in the morning and a new episode will be up. Which was another aggravation. Project 1- fail. Sewing machine- stopped working. I look- bad.
But even with all the annoyances the day was still good! I took the first step toward reaching a dream I've had for many, many years...and that's all the details I'm giving on it for now.
