Windows 7: Youtube Song Copyright Question

26 Oct 2010   #11

Windows 7 x86/x64, Server 2008r2, Web Server 2008

While the artist is the owner for so long after its been produced the record company holds the rights to that song. If they get greedy which they tend to do, they hire a lawyer to scour the depths of youtube and fine there songs and have them removed.

The song purchase is for personal use. You aren't violating copyright using it for non-profit purposes, but youtube doesn't like it anyway.
you request permission from the Record Company, which they will say sure, but give us an assload of money first.
Purchasing rights for mainstream music for public performance is very very expensive.

If it were up to record executives, you would pay per listen for each song you listen to. And in terms of public performance, per listen per person. With the record profits they make almost every year, those whiny crybabies can go pound sand as far as I'm concerned. Worst thing that can happen if you post the video is that it either gets removed or the music gets muted as is the case often with the Warner Music Group.

Or in some cases, someone playing a prank.

I've even seen videos being removed from YouTube because someone did a cover of a song by playing it him/herself on an acoustic guitar! lol... Seriously? I mean, really!

I'm really stumped on this one. Last week I went to rename one song in my Windows 7 Music Library folder. I clicked 'rename' and put the cursor inside the blue highlighted name field. When I clicked to start typing the new title, all 80 songs were renamed to the same title. When that happened...
