A Message from YouTube: UMG owns you.

Last night I checked my email and saw that one of my videos, Bringing Sexy Back, has a copyright claim on it.

Now, I'm not about to say I have any rights to the original items the video is made of. I do not own the rights to Final Fantasy XI, nor to the music included (one of the songs from Chariots of Fire).

The copyright claim was on the music, which Universal Music Group does in fact own. It states now that they have the right to monitor the amount of views my page gets, as well as place advertisements on it.


So basically now UMG will be trolling through YouTube and nailing users who DARE use their songs....
