March 2014: Did anyone get this Youtube Content ID Letter?

So this kind of flew under the radar....

Gaming videos were particularly hard hit, including those that were part of sanctioned channels – in other words, people who were given specific permission to do what they do, were slapped for doing what they do. Since removing every potential violation would have left YouTube looking like the shelves the day after the day after Christmas, they resorted to simply removing the monetization option.

Vidders were not happy and they had a right to be mad. Turns out many of the copyright claims were coming in from third-parties who didn’t even have a right to lay claim. What a mess. Even I got hit and I don’t have that many videos!
 
Now, it seems that YouTube is trying to make amends. They sent a letter out to content producers with a list of changes that should help keep this same thing from happening in the future. My favorite line in the letter: “this introduction didn’t go as we’d hoped.”

  It was so under reported, that it made me wonder.  How many people actually recieved this letter?  Does anyone know if good ol' AngryJoe recieved this famous letter?  Does he still have a music company claiming ownership of his videos? Below are links to the full letter:

P.S. I was only able to find two other places reporting on this myself.  (http://www.tubefilter.com/2014/03/18/youtube-content-id-updates-tools/ and http://www.hypebot.com/hypebot/2014/03/youtube-updates-content-id-changes-for-creators.html)

So basically Youtube is doing what it was supposed to do in the first plac.e

I didn't and personally it doesn't matter. I'll take this letter and shove it up YouTube's ass.

Didn't see this. Well, at least they're trying.

 

Despite all this though, copyright law still needs to be rewritten, goddammit! Violation of fair use needs to be treated just as badly as violation of copyright!
