youtube has muted lucien's videos due to music copyright issues. just when i thought it was safe to use felix the housecat since he wasn't so.... mainstream. sigh!

i'll have to find some boring generic royalty-free music.

did you have tags in the video info regarding the music? Like a little mention of the artist?

no i didn't... should i or should i not have?

no, you definitely don't want tags.
If you have tags listing the artist, your chances of having a video pulled are greatly increased. Som,e artists are cool with people using their music, and some aen't. Some of the record companies have people surf youtube checking tags to make sure that none of their client's songs are being uaed.

That's really a bummer and just plain bad luck thaty uyou lost the sound because of that, even though you weren't using a tag.

How many views did it have?

Re: no, you definitely don't want tags.
i have 1,394 views on that, and 1,896 on the sequel which i think will be flagged next if they found the first one.

it will be hard finding replacement soundtracks! felix the housecat is just the perfect vibe for the spideykids. =(

Re: no, you definitely don't want tags.
That's not very many views for your video to have gotten spotted. Considering all of the millions of videos up on youtube, finding yours with the copyright violation is like finding a needle in a massive haystack.

My condolences.

If you like anything that Moby does, he has a site where you can snag music for free right here

awesome! thanks matt! i will sniff it out! =D

yeh this little ol' space is getting all sorts of weird traffic so maybe some undesirables have wandered in. nevertheless, i'm not fazed. i'm not sweating the small stuff this year, and i pity those who spend their time trying to make life difficult for others.

silver lining in every dark cloud. for every bad thing that happens, i see the good in others as a result. =)

So that's why some videos didn't have music at all... duh me.

Will they do the same if it's just friends' only viewing? Boo at this.

pssst... my videos in my facebook page are still okay if you want to look at them. =)

i think the new copyright rules apply no matter who views them. =\
