I admit when someone pushes me too far, and it really has to be way too far, I tend to respond accordingly. Well I responded strongly. Here is the email I sent to Google aka You Tube.
For the fourth time someone has filed a copyright claim against the same video of mine. The fact that the first three, back in early 2017 backed off should have told you something when this one came up. The fact that I only discovered this claim because I went in to edit some of my videos was the only reason I found this it has really set me off. This one is from 2018 but beyond that I have no clue. Please tell me how four separate companies can lay claim to my work. That they have given me permission to use "my" intellectual property as long as I didn't make money off it but they could really lit me up.
This video is an excerpt from my book Blood Lines Family Ties. They are claiming my intellectual work. That the comment that is hanging out there now is "Your copyright dispute is currently being reviewed by the copyright owner. You'll receive a response within 30 days from when you filed the dispute." How the hell can you assume that it is their copyright? It belongs to me. I understand about how this all goes through some computer and it somehow matches things up but come on. Four companies on the same video. Get real. Also why is it that I don't get to see their work that I'm supposed to have copied? I want that information.
The last time I sat back and played by your rules but not this time. I've already started my campaign and come Monday I will be contacting my attorney. Pull me from You Tube and it will only add to the flame. I'm a sixty three year old woman and you are going to look pretty damn bad in the media picking on a poor little old lady and believe me I will use it. You have a lot of attorneys to fight things like this I'm sure but boy do people love it when a little old lady gets picked on by big companies. You are the ones to bring the money issue into this, not me. When you did you brought into question my royalties on any of the book Blood Lines Family Ties that I have sold or will sell.
Also I should tell you I can back up my claims in so many ways it will make your head spin. You might want to take a look at my latest video I posted. You can pull it but I suggest you don't. I'm not the only one you have pissed off by this and it is spreading everywhere and believe it or not there are other ways of spreading videos, messages, blogs, and any other number of things. One other thing, Emma the character in the excerpt, that's based on my daughter. You might not understand the significance of this but I do.
