UMG and False claims on YouTube

themmnetwork:

awdplace:

So I finally found a contact with the whole UMG (Universal Music Group) debacle and I asked for proof of Capcom music from an NES game under the fair use copyright law, then being claimed by UMG that it’s owned by them and in their catalog. And I received a one sentence explanation: “UMG has been appointed to file claims for capcom.”

A friend also got a similar email explanation stating “UMG holds the rights to Capcom in Canada” Hmm… “in Canada”… that seems fishy…

This is still not definitive proof, If anyone knows someone from Capcom if this is true, then we got a problem, but if that’s not true. A friend has also received an email stating that they should contact someone from YouTube “about the documentation” which states they own that music… Which is BS considering NO ONE can contact anyone at YouTube. So this just reeks of foul play.

Companies like IDOL and Phonofile have been claiming the SAME MUSIC as a result, but they’ve backed out. Universal seems to be the ONLY company so far that’s so confident int heir actions, they’re willing to give off responses like this to the YouTube producers of content WITHOUT FALTERING.

They’re counting on people to not be able to contact other companies to prove their false claims. So we need to continue this, keep asking these questions and get answers.

This is the “VP of anti-piracy” at UMG btw, David Benjamin, email: David.Benjamin@umusic.com

I’ve yet asked them about how they can claim the rights to a song owned by DISNEY, (wait) that is 1) a karaoke version of a song, and 2) played with midi synth sound. But we’ll wait for that one.

So please, if anyone can help contact YouTube, Capcom or UMG officials, let me know or let others know. We need to stop this crap.

Well, I know someone from capcomunity has eyes on this blog, and I’ve contacted them myself before on matters such as this, mainly Phonofile, though IDOL and UMG have some claims on us, too.

So far, I’ve been told that without the claim coming from Capcom, there is little they can do to help, with the recommendation of disputing the claim (as these are sometimes filed accidentally under YouTube’s new setup) and trying to contact the ones filing it— which doesn’t seem to be doing a lot in UMG’s case.

If you’ve had success filing a dispute (which I’ve found tricky, because I don’t own the music, either, and haven’t been sure what to check off on the dispute form as a result), please share with us what you did, and we’ll pass it along!

Likewise, please reblog this! The more people who see it and the mor info we can gather, the better! —LBD

"Should parents read their daughter’s texts or monitor her online activity for bad language and inappropriate content?"

Earlier today, I served as the “young woman’s voice” in a panel of local experts at a Girl Scouts speaking event. One question for the panel was something to the effect of, "Should parents read their daughter’s texts or monitor her online activity for bad language and inappropriate content?"

I was surprised when the first panelist answered the question as if it were about cyberbullying. The adult audience nodded sagely as she spoke about the importance of protecting children online.

I reached for the microphone next. I said, “As far as reading your child’s texts or logging into their social media profiles, I would say 99.9% of the time, do not do that.”

Looks of total shock answered me. I actually saw heads jerk back in surprise. Even some of my fellow panelists blinked.

Everyone stared as I explained that going behind a child’s back in such a way severs the bond of trust with the parent. When I said, “This is the most effective way to ensure that your child never tells you anything,” it was like I’d delivered a revelation.

It’s easy to talk about the disconnect between the old and the young, but I don’t think I’d ever been so slapped in the face by the reality of it. It was clear that for most of the parents I spoke to, the idea of such actions as a violation had never occurred to them at all.

It alarms me how quickly adults forget that children are people.

Apparently people are rediscovering this post somehow and I think that’s pretty cool! Having experienced similar violations of trust in my youth, this is an important issue to me, so I want to add my personal story:

Around age 13, I tried to express to my mother that I thought I might have clinical depression, and she snapped at me “not to joke about things like that.” I stopped telling my mother when I felt depressed.

Around age 15, I caught my mother reading my diary. She confessed that any time she saw me write in my diary, she would sneak into my room and read it, because I only wrote when I was upset. I stopped keeping a diary.

Around age 18, I had an emotional breakdown while on vacation because I didn’t want to go to college. I ended up seeing a therapist for - surprise surprise - depression.

Around age 21, I spoke on this panel with my mother in the audience, and afterwards I mentioned the diary incident to her with respect to this particular Q&A. Her eyes welled up, and she said, “You know I read those because I was worried you were depressed and going to hurt yourself, right?”

TL;DR: When you invade your child’s privacy, you communicate three things:

  1. You do not respect their rights as an individual.
  2. You do not trust them to navigate problems or seek help on their own.
  3. You probably haven’t been listening to them.

Information about almost every issue that you think you have to snoop for can probably be obtained by communicating with and listening to your child.

Part of me is really excited to see that the original post got 200 notes because holy crap 200 notes, and part of me is really saddened that something so negative has resonated with so many people.
