For the fourth time someone has filed a copyright claim against one of my videos on You Tube. Now the first three times this happened, three at one time, You Tube at least notified me of this. This time they didn’t.
Now this had nothing to do with images, soundtrack, hell the damn font I used, but these three companies files the claim against the written material from the excerpt of my book. First the fact that three separate companies filed a copyright claim against what amounted to two and a half pages of my book Blood Lines Family Ties should have set off bell and whistles. For You Tube that is. It definitely set off bells and whistles for me but of a different sort. Now this was in March of 2017.
Here it is November of 2018 and while I was doing some editing of some of my videos I found where another company had filed another claim against my work sometime this year but I was never notified. I was also informed through this notice that I’m seeing for the first time that the other company, Big Frame – Awesomenesstv, was being kind enough to allow me to go ahead and use it so long as I didn’t make money from it. Now they can attach commercial ads to it and make money all day long but I better not. I guess this means any books I’ve sold as a result of this video they can sue me for.
The first three companies that filed the claim against the video went away after I filed a dispute but this one is going to allow me to use my video. Understand something here, IT IS MY WORK, no one was standing over my shoulders when I wrote any of my books.
Here’s the kicker. You Tube has never shown me anything of any of these companies that have made claims against me so what is it of mine they are stealing? Can you tell me another way of looking at this? I’m open to it but I can only see this as some type of theft at this point. Think about this a minute. Four different companies claimed to have written what is in that excerpt. Add me to the mix and that is at least five people that had to have been there when it was written and that is only if there was one person from each of the four companies.
It actually gets worse. You Tube does everything it can to keep you from filing a dispute. I mean everything including barely veiled threats. You can have your video blocked all the way up to being barred from You Tube. Also if I hadn’t gone down deep to do some editing I would have never even known about this. This is what is listed in the deep editing part of You Tube right now.
“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.”
I am the copyright owner you assholes. I think I should be able to review what this company has that they claim they own. Anyway I’m turning it over to an attorney and if You Tube, Google, and Big Frame – Awesomenesstv want to go into court with an little old lady and have that one spread all over the press then go for it.
Oh here’s another little tidbit about this piece of work. I can take you from the exact spot from where this excerpt starts all the way to the place where it ends and as for Emma…well unless they can pull someone out of their ass that looks like my daughter who Emma is based on, and I want to see that one, I seriously doubt they can.
The part they claim is theirs.
“Why? Because of you Emma. I didn’t come looking for you, you came to me. If you had just continued walking out to me that day you wouldn’t be here and the connection between us would have ended. I wouldn’t have found out the things I have. Instead Taylor was there to rescue you and because of that the connection stayed in place and got stronger with each day. I’ve had you in my head ever since. I thought a little turnabout was far play don’t you agree?”
“So it’s been about killing me all along.” Emma now began to understand the terror he had been putting her through.
Allen let out a harsh almost demonic laugh. “Is that what you think my dear? Didn’t your boyfriend tell you what was happening? No Emma it hasn’t been about killing you in days. It’s been about you waking in me things that had died. Making me remember who I once was and what I had. You my smart little girl, figured that out already. You got the images of Nadine and her burnt corpse. You saw my children with the flesh burned from their bones. You saw what I did that helped start all this, you who have been screaming and crying and fretting over your mind being invaded all day. What the fuck do you think you did to me time and time and time again.”
Allen again glanced at Emma and pulled on her arm. The fires that burned in his eyes were growing larger and brighter by every second.
“This isn’t the first time you’ve made a trip like this in a truck is it. I like that word, truck. It makes it sound heavy and strong. It’s a good word for this thing. Anyway as I was saying this isn’t the first time for you. You took a scary ride in one last year and that almost didn’t turn out too well, did it? I promise you’re in for a treat this time. This won’t end well for you my dear or for anyone you love.” Allen felt Emma going limp and again he jerked her.
“Don’t you dare faint on me! I want you conscious for this whole little joy ride my love.” Allen spit the last part out as if it were a mouth full of venom.
So unless my name or the soundtrack which is listed for free to use on You Tubes website is what they are screaming about then I’m at a total loss. Oh this portion of the video was also the part that came into question the first time but at least the three companies has the good sense to split it up in portions.
Attached is the complete video. Oh I have since redone the video some months back because the book cover had changed as well as I wanted to make it where it ran a little smoother. Same written content but no one has tagged this one.
I’m attaching the original video so you can read the whole thing.
