This is very nice to know.
As somebody who likes using Newgrounds music for youtube video, it's nice to see somebody actually caring about their music being used.
I try to ask people to use their music and I've never been told no. Even tho I've never been told no, I've had many people not replay. I'm sure it's because they aren't on Newgrounds anymore but it's really frustrating to not know what music is ok to use, and what isn't.
Thank you for this clarification on your part. It is a life saver coming from somebody that cares about fair use :)
Thanks for the comment! Yes, it's a tough situation to be in for everyone. Right now, it's unfortunately "all or nothing" for us copyright holders. If I don't take steps to register with Content ID, people can (and do) upload and monetize my music without permission. If I do take steps, a lot of people who I've approved get bulk flagged.
Ideally, I'd rather Content ID work as follows: Instead of auto-flagging/disabling videos, they aggregate all flagged videos and let the Content ID owner do as they wish. Bulk flag, bulk ignore, single out videos, etc.. I'm really only concerned about people who have monetized my music without permission. I actually *want* let's players, people who upload without monetization (and credit), and remixers to be able to share their work hassle-free.
I am willing to do my part in the meantime, and hope that Google/YouTube improves the system!
hello, i've been listening to your music since 2006, and i've gotta tell you: you make some epic songs!
