YOUTUBE COPYRIGHT CLAIMS **please share!**
Hello everyone!

1. Main theme
We know YouTube is sending copyright claims when they identify the main theme of Empyrion, because this is a licensed track and we can not prevent YouTube doing so. If you want to monetize your video, please tune down the main theme.

2. Ambient Sounds (like wind)
We heard about claims that were issued because of some sounds in the game, like the wind.

IF YOU GET TO KNOW OF A COPYRIGHT CLAIMS as described in (2.) PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH ME via Mail or point the youtuber you are following/watching towards this thread or this email adress.

> info@empyriongame.com
> subject: youtube copyright

Please spread the word, especially about #2!

Thanks a lot for your help!

Cheers,
Christoph

So i can copyright the sound of myself farting and then no-one else can put up sounds of farting on youtube. Great, what about all those rain & thunder Videos?

Jeeez Youtube not got better things to stop being broadcast?
Seems...no :D
It's all automated so technically they're not spending any time on it :D But yeah, that definitely sucks
Awww.. that's so sweet of you guys
You should plan on running a main theme contest to make a new, original theme to replace the current main menu theme to prevent copyright issues with the main theme.
They more than likely paid a fair amount of money for that theme music though. They'd be essentially lighting money on fire if they got a new one...
My solution to copyright issues for theme music and ambient sounds is far simpler. I turn the music and ambient sounds OFF.

Content ID was broken from the very start and is biased in favor of those who claim copyright. Claimmants are not even required to prove that they hold the rights to the work they are claiming.
I had music claims against my bug demostration videos, where in-game music was turned off. I wasn't even monetizing the video, it was a ♥♥♥♥ing demo of a bug for the devs. I havnt bothered with FUtube ever since.

Ads may appear on your video due to the presence of this song. Removing this song may remove ads from your video, and may allow you to monetize the video if eligible. Learn more

They always tag it.... very annoying, hours or work then I have to wait for them to remove their song.

I can confirm that #2 does happen. Happened to me about 5 or 6 months ago, when I first started doing Empyrion vids. I always turn music off in any game I record, as it is pretty standard for devs to license music so they have no control over copyright in that aspect, but this was the only time I've ever had a notice for ambient sound. Don't have the details of which video it was, so can't help with specifics, unfortunately. I do remember it was definitely the sound of wind when I was high in the mountains. I got around it by turning all sounds down and playing a music track over the videos.

this thing is really getting out of control. My support to those who upload on youtube, they ARE youtube and yet treated like rats.

I had one video get claimed and it was for the background music. I've muted the music and been fine since. I'd have to check my email to tell you what track specifically it was.
