UPDATE: I've cleared dozens of videos already without issue. Thank you all for getting in touch. Should you be hit with a claim, please PM me, or get in touch with me via email, facebook, YouTube, or twitter. If I don't respond  within a day or two, please don't be afraid to follow up. I DO NOT want to claim your let's plays -- please bug me until it's cleared :). Cheers!


Hi friends! Many of you know about YouTube's Content ID system, but for those who don't: 

Copyright owners can use a system called Content ID to easily identify and manage their content on YouTube.

Videos uploaded to YouTube are scanned against a database of files that have been submitted to us by content owners. Copyright owners get to decide what happens when content in a video on YouTube matches a work they own. When this happens, the video gets a Content ID claim.

                                                                                                                               - Google

Over the years, I've had quite a few of my tracks posted on Youtube (and other sites), with no attribution or crediting. I love that people are enjoying my music, and haven't really given it much thought (sometimes I'll leave a comment so people know who the author is). What I recently noticed, was that there are people who are posting my soundtracks (without permission), and monetizing them on YouTube -- with no attribution.

Recently, I've registered a large portion of my music catalogue to the Content ID system to help protect against theft. This doesn't change much; If you use my music in a let's play (with or without monetization), or post it without monetization, you are ok!  If you do get hit with a flag, either dispute it, or contact me direct via newgrounds and I'll whitelist your video. I will not let you get a copyright strike on your account.

On a broader note: Content ID is here to stay, as much of a nuisance as it can be. If you're a YouTube content provider, it is a good idea to get comfortable with the system, and understand how to dispute/correct an incorrect copyright claim. I've been hit with a few myself -- one was MY OWN copyright! Hopefully the system improves over time, and people become more comfortable with it. It's not as scary as it looks, and you're only likely to run into problems if you are profiting off of other people's work (without permission).

I'm not an expert on Content ID, but I'd be happy to answer any questions I can. And please, if you do get hit with any Content ID claims -- let me know! I don't want this to happen, and will straighten a claim out ASAP.
