actually, the youtube agreementt allows for you to have a copyrighted song in your video. but they cant say the song was theirs.

I have the same problem, too.

On my YT channel, I recorded 2 Saxton Hale Boss mode videos: one video showcasing Cave Johnson as a playable boss and another video showcasing Wheatley.

They both have Portal 2 music playing in the background.

Before this "Orchard" company placed the copyright claims on both the 2 videos, I was able to monetize both of these videos.

http://www.valvesoftware.com/videopolicy.html

"You are free to monetize your videos via the YouTube partner program and similar programs on other video sharing sites."

Valve is even GIVING US PERMISSION to monetize our videos and yet, I got copyright claims from the Orchard claiming that they "own" the Portal 2 music that was playing in the background of my two videos...

:l

If its in portal 2 doesnt that mean portal 2 owns it since it is the game itseelf? If i made a game called super ninja 5 and put a mettalica song in it which i would of course need to pay the people incharge of the song first and i sold the game then i would own that song and if you played it on youtube you would be playing the song that i and the other person own

The Orchard company is in no way related to Valve at ALL.

Portal 2 (people obviously know this but I'll mention it anyway) is a game OWNED and DEVELOPED by valve.

Search it up. Valve owns the music.

If you also search up "the orchard false claims", you can see that plenty of other people are having this problem as well.

Why are people talking about orchard company on portal forums? I automaticly thought because they made a song that is in portal 2

Same here, "The Orchard Music" claims: http://youtu.be/dkOgIzCFGFI
I hope Valve will do something with that.

Good news!

The reason why The Orchard was claiming it was because there was a Portal 2 soundtrack called "Songs to Test By".

The CD Version is handled by Ipecac Recordings, and that company has the Orchard handling the digital version.

I contacted Ipecac Recordings and they were able to contact the Orchard about this.

The claims should be lifted by now.

I've had a similar issue. Had to dispute over 20 videos.
