For the past few weeks, I have been relentlessly harassed and false copyright flagged by Universal Music Group whenever I do a Facebook livestream. These streams are educational videos record myself, in my studio of original music and are mostly drum recordings which I then show how to apply EQ and compression to, for example.
The stream is stopped, kicking off all the viewers and then I have to file a dispute to even get the video back, but the stream is ruined.
As a single example, you can check this video and see the matching content that they are laying claim to
Facebook has left me absolutely no way to contact support and plead my case for a whitelisting or some other solution. UMG has not responded to my emails, messages or phone calls.
On YouTube, AdRev, which turns out is also audiomicro.com has DMCA flagged me for a video which again, has none of their content and is all original content of mine. You can hear the “matching content” yourself
I have tried phone, email, filed a counter at YouTube and have found no way to truly contact any of the people responsible. I have sent more than enough messages in every way I could to AdRev, UMG and audiomicro, with no results
I cannot find any other recourse at this point other than to ask you to please go to their Facebook pages, and report them for intellectual property violation, as they ARE violating my intellectual property. Please, I ask you, realizing I could fully lose my Facebook over this, but rights only seem to exist in one direction, for the powerful against the weak, so I can’t find anything else to do
- Go to https://www.facebook.com/UniversalMusicGroup/
- click the 3 dots
- Chose “Give feedback or report this page”
- Click “Intellectual Property” and then click “send”
Please repeat this at https://www.facebook.com/adrevnet/ and https://www.facebook.com/audiomicro/
Please consider doing whatever you can to fight for content creators’ rights! This is quite an irony for the guy who created the Stop DMCA Abuse page at facebook! I never though it would be me getting nailed, but here I am!
