Youtube content ID

Post by moeilijk » February 21st, 2015, 2:10 pm


Today I uploaded a part from my wasteland 2 gameplay to youtube.
Oddly enough it got flagged by the youtube content ID system. It contains just gameplay footage ingame music, ingame sound effects and my voice.
The match is for the screaming people ambience near highpool. I didn´t know the ambience sounds were also copyrighted.
Is it possible the ambience sounds used may not be used even though Brian Fargo tweeted youtube video's of wasteland 2 are okay?
Can the devs pehaps confirm using ["Pro Sound Effects Library-Crowd - Screaming Mob", sound] that triggered the event?

I disputed the claim but I like to know if it does make any sense.

We don't do any sort of content ID stuff on YouTube, so it definitely wasn't us. If your video got flagged then that's probably the copyright holder for that stock sound effect using bots to enforce its copyright.

On a personal level, I can say I am no big fan of YouTube's "guilty until proven innocent" policies regarding copyright.

Sadly, because of YouTube's shoot first policies, it could even just be someone being an asshole or grinding an axe.
