Hey thanks a lot Alan for taking the time. Much appreciated.July 20, 2020 at 11:44 am #35437AdamGuest
I own a library and the main issue is that a tune registered with AdRev or Youtube Content ID could be trialed in a test video for potential licensing by a client. As soon as the tracking software used by those companies recognises the tune, my client receives a copyright warning to take down their video or they’d receive a strike. Three strikes and their Youtube channel would be suspended. I work with major media companies, and if any of them received one of these takedown notices, they’d stop using me immediately. The media companies often don’t have time to find out the ‘why’. They want fast & simple.
Would you rather have a few dollars from an ad revenue system or a placement from Viacom / Bauer / Netflix / Marvel?
For this reason alone, please ensure that if you submit your music to a library, that it isn’t with a revenue tracking system.
Speaking from personal experience,
