WMG Copyright Solution!

Alright, I know lots of people are obviously sick to death or the wmg crap thats muting your audio in your machinima’s/videos

I am happy to say there that… THERE IS A SOLUTION TO THIS! :smiley: (be happy!)

FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS!
Note: If you have already audioswapped then this will NOT Work!

  1. Click “My Videos”
  2. Click “View Copyright Info” on your video that has it’s audio muted.
  3. Click “I want to learn more about the dispute process” at the bottom of the page
  4. Click “Take me to the dispute form.”

now read carefully.

Check the SECOND box/circle where it says:

“This video uses copyrighted material in a manner that does not require approval of the copyright holder. It is a fair use under copyright law”

THEN Copy & Paste this into the Dialog:

“Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976,
allowance is made for “fair use” for purposes such as criticism,
comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.
Fair use is a use permitted by copyright statute that might
otherwise be infringing. Non-profit, educational or personal use tips
the balance in favor of fair use.”

Where it says “Signature” type in your REAL NAME (including surname)

then copy and paste this statement into the box where it says “Statement Of Good Faith”

I have a good faith belief that the material was disabled as a result of a mistake or mis-identification and that I am not intentionally abusing this dispute process.

Click Continue
Click Submit!

And now all you have to do is wait, it can take upto an hour to get your audio back!
(Hurray!)

What this is doing is using one of the copyright laws as evidence that you are not using the audio for profit and that you are using it in a “fair” way in this case we are using the our audio for PERSONAL reasons which is entertainment and NOT profit.

Yea, I’ve been using this for almost 3 months and used it on 3 videos in that time, no later problems =D

Thanks dude. This will be very useful.

bumping to keep this useful thread alive.

This must be a sticky.

Bump for other people if they have WMG being a bitch.

bump.

hump hump hump

WMG is stupid. Very few channels are intended for profit, while the ones that are become obvious and should already know about copyright issues (For example machinima)

well, I tried that on one of my vids. It worked for a short time then they took it off again…

try again.

i tried it before… let me go see if it worked

Is it mandatory to put your real name, cause if this not legal somehow, then i don’t wanna use my real name.

Yes i am a :tinfoil:

That’s what I want to know too.

It sounds just a tiny bit illegal for some reason :ohdear:

Can’t WMG sue you for this or something?

Maybe not sue, but this just doesn’t seem legit somehow.
