My first copyright strike on youtube

Received my first copyright strike today on youtube for uploading Alice Cooper’s song “Cleansed By Fire” yesterday. Oy. In the past when I’ve uploaded songs the copyright holder usually chooses to monetize it themselves or either bans the video in several countries or worldwide. But not in this case for some reason. Strange.

So, I guess I won’t be uploading the AC/DC songs planned for later this week. Gonna have to wait on that until this strike falls off my account in 3 months time. Hmm.

One would think it would be more beneficial for Nightmare Inc., the copyright holder, to just monetize the video and leave it up so that more people are made aware of the tune’s existence. But nah. They didn’t choose to go that route. Which strikes me as sad really.

So anyway, it’s a good song available elsewhere on YT, just no longer available on my own channel.
