Rain Station: copyright infringers
We have had so much trouble posting videos to YouTube of our own music. They continue to think that our videos are copyright infringement, when it’s simply our music and our videos we are posting. The process to keep our videos up is complicated, and we are guilty until we prove we have the right to our own tunes. It’s frustrating. Somehow our distribution through The Orchard, iTunes, and Amazon makes YouTube think we are stealing the music, making videos, and then they hit us with infringement.
How does one prove they made something? I responded letting them know it was my music, but I got a form letter that didn’t address my email. Now YouTube tells me that it’s up to The Orchard to decide if I have the right to post my music videos. They sent me a form letter telling me to update my preferences if I no longer want them to distribute my music. Of course I want them to distribute my music, but not stop me from making videos. All I know is that I want to punch somebody. Who, who can I punch?
