    UPDATE (as taken from my twitter)

    Things are a bit muddy.
    - I do have written permission from the artist to use the claimed song.
    - However; the song uses a sample that has been picked up by Warners content ID bot. So I am being claimed for a sample, not the song.

    I'm still hoping we can resolve this.
    And take this as a lesson from me:
    Not only should you ensure you have complete rights to the music you are using for your videos, but also ensure that you ask about any samples that have been used. Otherwise you could end up in this situation (And you wouldn't want that).
    Will do a video on Tuesday explaining. I am taking a day off tomorrow!

      Lesson learned; don't use music from shady artist that jack samples and allow you to unknowingly put your livelihood at risk. For something as stupid as an intro make it yourself. It's an intro, it can seriously be the sound of your front door opening or some corny baseline and add the same value as a professionally produced and licensed song would - none.

      It doesn't matter if it samples another work. If it varies by at least 15% of the original work sample, than it is a derivative work, and not their copyrighted work.

    youtube should have Fight to save this channel
    with about five super intelligent bots and ten youtube workers the person fighting to save a channel should have proof and if the second side Dont have proof the side copyrighting gets Terminated

    I had a Content ID claim for a track that I downloaded from the TheXvid audio library! When I e-mailed TheXvid anout it, I received a terse reply basically saying hard luck. I don't use music at all in my videos now. Fortunately, the subject matter of my videos makes avoiding music easy, but I can see that this would be extremely difficult for other channels.

    It should be innocent until proven guilty and if the "striker" should have a point system as well, if they falsely claim something they get a strike. Three strikes and they pay a fine or something.

    They hire teams of people to initiate manual copyright claims. You can search online right now and find one paying $20 an hour or more and you work from home. The best defense to keep up is to hire your own counter claim team or hope TheXvid re-evaluates this issue.,IL?jid=DQa1b47c7d5f59291606d3a3b3da38ad95&

    While this doesn't really identify what is going on with your particular issue, it does show the scope of the problem. Go to this website for SoundExchange.!/search?artistName=Warner%20Chappel&tab=search&showReleases=0&start=0&number=100

    Warner Chappell has an ISRC number registered with SoundExchange on music they are claiming that they hold for royalties.

    OK there is one way you can procede. It is messy but means you will keep your monetisation. This will take a while to do. Use the seek and delete tool for the music clips in question on each vid. the claim is then made null and you regain monetisation. All the best.

    TheXvid is focusing on the companies and on ads rather than the people who make videos that ad provides and companies use to get their name out their. Right now youtube is ignoring the people who keep them in business!
    TheXvid Get Your Head Out Of Your A$$ And Focus On The People who allow you to GET INCOME!!!!

    This is part of why I haven't uploaded to TheXvid. I have concerns that I'll suddenly have strikes or something placed on me, even though I'd be under fair use. I actually do believe I had a claim placed on me at some point though I hadn't done anything wrong. There are TheXvidrs who are basically being bullied by big companies. I don't have the time, money, or patience for that. I might look around for another platform. The system is broken and just stupid.

    I wish you the best of luck with all this Mumbo. I'm sorry about this man.

    This is why TheXvid should not have a copyright detection system. People have legal recourse through the courts if something is a violation of their copyright. Else, it should be left untouched, and fully monetized.

    WHO tf is disliking this?! Everyone should be supporting creators that get false copyright-claimed like Mumbo here. I'd love to see those people get their monthly paycheck and instead of showing how much they're getting paid, it just says "Oh, yeah, tough shit, you whistled a song for 10 minutes while you were slogging your guts out for 152 hours so we've given your pay to the person who wrote that song. And unless you can prove otherwise, you're not getting the money you worked your ass off for.
    Best idea: dislike a video that expresses that situation - really helps and shows where you stand.
