First music lovers were getting sued left and right for illegal downloading, file sharing and all that stuff… and now the legal bullshit doesn’t stop there.
Youtubers, FB vloggers and things like that want to post their video blogs. Ya know, they want to film themselves walking around out in public talking to the camera and stuff. People want to post that stuff for fun but these copyright pings keep hitting on people. Yeah it’s ’cause there’s a song playing in the background that is owned by a record label and it’s fucking bullshit if you ask me.
There’s nothing you can do about removing a song in the background but you get copyright pinged/flagged anyways. It’s not social media’s fault, it’s all the fucking evil record labels. You want to post a vlog of yourself walking around and you want to post your lifting videos at the gym but you get copyright pinged. Musicians want to cover songs by their favorite bands & artists but again, copyright pings affects them too sadly.
It’s all a shame. I stopped posting vlogs at youtube ’cause of the strict rules and now “advertisements” being played during videos. Vlogging used to be fun for everyone but not so much anymore. Many youtubers quit youtube for that reason ’cause we’ve had it with all this.
We just want to share cool and interesting content with the world but the major record labels just want to ruin everything for us. It’s frustrating that when you post a video and it gets pinged automatically ’cause of a copyrighted song on it. We’re all tired of it.
I love vlogging myself but as stated above, all the legal stuff ruining the fun for everything. Getting ridiculous for sure.
