I disputed them saying something to the effect of educational purposes & student work. They were unblocked within a day.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnA0sawL-xg  Is a video that only worked on a PC, not mobile devices. This link solved my
problem: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYKndPcCXm0&feature=youtu.be  Again I said something to the effect of educational purposes & student work.

In writing this email I now notice the Jazz video (first link) has the "May be blocked in some countries" yellow flag under video manager. I wonder if they unblocked it, then later, put the flag on it. I don't remember that flag a few months ago when I last used the video. It does play on my android phone and under advanced settings - Syndication - it does say everywhere.

Hope this helps, happy "Tubbing!"

Just as Shannon, I also had a few videos blocked then restored after I disputed them.

1)  Colchester HS in Southern VT switched their lipdub to vimeo as youtube banned their lipdub.  I would change to Vimeo, but I've found them to be unreliable  (too much down time or video is not available).  Maybe this has changed.

2)  Yes, youtube is monetizing the videos so copyright owners may be getting their cut, at the very least google is getting their cut.

3)  I really like the password idea.   It is right up there with an unlisted video.  I hope it's true

4)  We are doing another lip dub this year . Again it's heavily modified with student input. The kids love it.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Youtube offers a service called Content ID (https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2797370).  Vigilant content providers pay to have their copyrighted materials identified and protected more vigorously than the average content is handled.  All content is not treated equally.  Here's a guide to youtube's possible reactions:  https://support.google.com/youtube/troubleshooter/4440751.

Think your use falls under fair use protection?  You can dispute the identification:  https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/2797454?hl=en.  I've had a couple of videos that have received take down notices or had their soundtrack muted restored after making a claim.

Copyright and Fair Use laws do need to be revisited in light of current tech tools.  A great resource for current law and precedent is Renee Hobbs text Copyright Clarity.  Well worth reading!

Trying not to thread-jack, but hopefully relevant... has anyone else had the experience of audio track being muted on a student project uploaded to YouTube? In our case these are "multimedia mashups" that may include short sections of popular music... although we use the 30 sec criteria, I have seen some audio tracks removed while others with copyrighted music are not.

Does anyone know what criteria YouTube is using? Are there specific companies that have registered their content, and some have not? It's hard to tell why certain pieces have been muted and some have not.

I have tried to get permission or to offer payment to use popular songs/music for education or by our school chorus  (songs that will be part of a video and uploaded to the net) and you are correct. ..it is amazingly....next to impossible to get permission.  This is because so many famous people own the rights to popular songs. There are often multiple companies that have to be contacted from all different parts of the country and the larger companies do not post contact phone information.  They do not answer emails. There are middle organizations that you'd think could  handle this for you...but when I finally contacted some of them they told me I that they don't handle music use for education and to contact the companies directly.

I learned that, as a librarian,  I no longer recommend to students to get permission to use popular songs for uploaded student created or chorus video. I tell them that it is much easier to create their own music or use copyright free content for when uploading it to the Internet.

Hi All,

"Matched Third Party Content"    I ran across this a week or so ago in my youtube account and am curious about group thoughts.    


Song ":Let it Go" by Kindergartner and our Music Teacher.   Before we start, This song is basically a cover.   Nothing from an original recording/mp3. and yet youtube was still able to match for third party content, both impressive and scary.  

It's use can be considered educational, but it still bugs me that it was tagged.  And, no, we didn't pay for performance rights.   

Have you ever tried to get the rights to cover a popular song and post it?   I have, several times,  It's next to impossible. and when it is possible, you can't afford it.

And lets be really honest....Most of our kids are not running up to us waving their hands wildly and saying  Mr. M   I REALLY WANT TO DO A COVER ON THIS COOL SONG I FOUND ON CREATIVE COMMONS.    They want to use their music... the stuff they know.

When we post popular music, we usually use a mash up or modify the song.   We also make it unlisted, so you can't find it unless you have a link.  

Curious as to what you do?

Thanks,
Jon
