YouTube on YouTube Game Takedowns

YouTube has responded to the rash of takedowns of game-related videos sending emails to some of the impacted users. Kotaku has the letter, which unapologetically explains the content matches at issue, noting many of these are music-related, saying: "Be aware of music. Many games allow you to turn off background music, while leaving sound effects enabled. And if you're looking for music you can freely use (and monetize!), check out our Audio Library." There have been numerous reports of erroneous takedowns during this process, but nothing in the letter addresses these.

If they had permission then there wouldn't be any claims, would there? That means the content owners would be cutting off an extra revenue source. I think it's you who needs to brush up the facts, champ.

You missed the part where it's all YouTube's automated bot, not the content owners. Blizzard and a few other big publishers are trying to mass-allow everything but haven't been able to. One guy was doing a video of his own game with his own music, and it was removed for copyright claims. The content identification bot isn't working.

As a joke I once posted a capture of the rat QTE in Battlefield 3 and labeled as exciting new gameplay footage from Skyrim showing the first enemy of the game. It got bot'd for having footage owned by Bethesda.
NOT THE BEES! NOT THE BEES THEY'RE IN MY EYES AARRGRHGHGGAFHGHFGHFG!
