KOMCA_CS, APRA_CS, BUMA_CS, COMPASS_CS - Potential Copyright Fraud?

28 944 views | 15 Sep. 2017

I mainly did this video just to inform about a potential fraud, as I don't believe these waves of copyright claims are valid considering how many other people have also found themselves in the same situation, and how some of the claims appear to be for songs that aren't actually being claimed for (like Main Chick by Kid Ink and the Yoshi's Island Athletic Theme).

I'm going to start with one dispute and see how it goes, mainly because they picked the wrong person to leech off of, and that other people who are trying to make a living out of YouTube are quite likely getting screwed over. I'm not focusing on the money, I'm just trying to bring light to something shady.

Call Me Araff

APRA_CS just copyright claimed my video.. and it was my Injustice 2 MOBILE - Chapter 1 video. Just disputed my video and hoping for the best.

KuroNoTenno

My video was hit with a content ID claim from APRA_SC and SOCAN. Neither of them seem to have any relation to the work I show in said video.

Jobel4u

Daidaika

I just got a video claimed by APRA_CS for about the first three minutes of a song that played throughout the entire 20 minute video. Guess I know now this is one that I can dispute, right?

R'llo Arhsaakxianutsi

I just had CASH PanAsia, VCPMC_CS copyright claimed my FFXIV Online playthrough and one part has some music at the beginning of the cutscene playing called The Twilight of Thanalan and claimed it was there music and has put ads on my video. Been lucky no strikes but tired of these possible fake claims since any other time I made videos of my playthroughs I have no copyrights of anything.

SL4RK

I am from Russia and I also encountered such a problem
office SUISA_SESAC_CS claimed the rights to the track DANCING IN THE STREET, although in the video a cover of the Russian song "Zveri - Dance" (Sorry for my English)

Xscaped

They claimed one of my videos, too, pretending to be Epidemic Sound which I am subscribed to. Epidemic Sound said it's a false claim and they are trying to contact YouTube.

ZAIKS_CS, APRA_CS, SABAM_CS, CASH, SOCAN copyright claim here too...

Dash Retro's Archives

I just got a copyright claim from APRA_CS on my latest Mario 64 video (Dire Dire Docks' music being the content in question). I looked into it a bit and found APRA_CS is apparently a copyright collective representing Australian and New Zealand composers. You can find a list of this and other copyright collectives on Wikipedia as well as information about them. I don't totally see why content owned by Nintendo would be getting claimed by this other party that also seems unrelated. Since Nintendo now has a policy explicitly allowing content such as Let's Plays, I filed a dispute citing the policy as well as questioning the validity of the claim coming from "APRA_CS". I will let you know how it goes.

Super SkeleBros.

Anyone here from Juno Songs? He made a Bob-Omb Battlefield with lyrics, and another faceless company called vcpmc_cs tried to take it down. Because apparently Sony owns the Mario soundtrack.

SUPER MARIO ON THE PS4! WAHOOOOOO!!!

PoiterKerton

Yes this also happened with me, one of these companies claimed a gameplay video of me(kingdom hearts 3). They claimed to have the rights of a background music in the game (twilight town) but I'm pretty sure that they don't own the rights to that song. The weirdest thing about it is that my channel isn't monetize so why did they claim it if they don't get money out of it? And ofcourse everyone on the internet says that they're fake so yeah

Iron Cutlass

one of my most recent videos got a claim from one of these companies, I used a copyright-free song, had permission from the artist, and credited them and got a claim from them. the company is SABAM_CS.

Ray Herbst

This has turned me into an abysmal cesspool of ridiculous claims, I published performances of music in the public domain (since 1575) and got 5 claims. This crap is outrageous

SuperNickid

@levelengine: APRA_CS: his starting again in 2020 with the potential copy right fraud, I just got a copy right claim that they own the dire dire dock music that have the drum, and other company are also frauding, including Latino, and maybe Sony ATV, Sony ATV his possibly a legit copy right claim since they might have help nintendo to implement the individuel sound track, in Super mario 3d all-stars, and beside it his not me who chose the song to be play, it his just the video game itself that play that song when I play the game, I don't really care since I don't monetize, and Nintendo does not copy right claim people that do not monetize in 2020, at it as to be fake, because their policy show after they copy right claim, you can still monetize in some territories, if it was a legit claim, it would have said no monteization allowed except for the copy right owner, Copy right claim thing that are not yours his a federal offense,

ieL TV

the same names are claiming copyright on my video but im pretty sure its my original work so i searched those name in youtube and it led me here! thanks man! gonna file a dispute

Marioandsonicfan544

Deidara Akatsuki

Marco Amazo

BossRoss

BigTonyBruiser

they claimed me for a portal gameplay lol

german199denuevo

Yes they are false claiming content, my case is FF7 soundtrack, some songs are detected by youtube as APRA_CS and not from Square Enix, totally FRAUD.

Villafuerte Andrea Lu

uh but how do you remove their copy right accusations? It's not even their song that I posted I gave full credits but why?

SvetaVinogradova

They (Compass_CS) are claiming for a half of a Tchaikovsky's piece! Bearing in mind that the composer died in the 19th century? And for just half of the song? They are FRAUDTERS!

PitbullGod

They claimed a video I made for the ducktales moon theme. I want to dispute the claim but these aren't the type of people I want with my full name. I hope they get the hell sued out of them.

Sharin X

Seriously what's happenig , are you really saying that whatever company can make a claim on any video without proof ?wtf you tube.

Owlsmol OwO

Let the creators claim the rights! It is more understandable! But a company full of losers who's sole purpose it is to be a cancerous polyp for the sake of it. Please you will never own any rights unless you create you own stuff!

Levelengine, my dear friend. this video helped me. thanks. for this you get a subscription. I want your videos to thrive.

Isaac Kim

BadLuckGuy

ARPA_CS claiming to my old favorite (Indonesian Indie) band (Killing Me Inside) that they don't EVER bother to register they F*cking emo songs. AND it is appear that in "Monetized in some territories" it being monetize in some Oceania countrys.....no racist (i am black) but it not match up Geographically, also if they are LEGIT company OMCA_CS, APRA_CS, BUMA_CS, COMPASS_CS etc why they are not even got website or somesort of representation of they company and the only thing that i'm find is people complaining about FAKE COPYRIGHT CLAIM.
