I will probably keep my music out of traditional libraries and start to monetize my own works. That makes more sense to me.December 22, 2013 at 3:18 pm #14140SupercomposerGuest
Just take control of your Youtube on your own at AdRev . I think enforce Youtube for all the big libraries and can get your stuff out of TuneCore / IND Music. Just upload to them and they will take care of it . Did it for me when IND was trying to hold me hostage when they did not have rights, took them 3 days and about 5 emails and I was free and in control of my stuff. IND is dirty and Audiam is TuneCore. don’t let those pirates take your stuff.December 22, 2013 at 4:46 pm #14141MichaelLParticipant

Just be aware that doing this will get you dropped from, or barred from joining, a number of libraries.December 23, 2013 at 2:20 pm #14151Desire_InspiresParticipant

That is rather unfortunate. But it is a risk worth taking for some.December 26, 2013 at 3:24 pm #14187Nick D.Guest
I wanted to let everyone know this:
If you submit your library to YouTube’s ContentID any of your paying customers who licence from the publisher/composer to use it in a YouTube video will get unnecessarily flagged for copyright infringement. It happen to me. I had to dispute it, letting them know I licences the track, sent a link to the tracks page on the stock media licencor’s site, and a screen shot of my receipt. What’s worse is that I have to do this every time I upload a new video with the track.
The other thing that seems fishy is the ContentID names the track by one title while stock media licencor gives it another name. I have listened closely and they are the same track.
There is no mechanism in place to let ContentID know that a customer has rightfully licensed it. The YouTube user is guilty until proven innocent. This means that the video could be blocked, have a pre roll add, a lower-thrid ad, or and ad to the right of the video on the play page.
