FORUM NEW RULES!! links to copyrighted content forbidden!!

Postby Brohymn » Mon Apr 09, 2012 6:59 pm

Hi!

As you might have noticed this forum has as its main financier google adsense service.
Yesterday I received a contact from google telling me that the site had violated Google Adsense Terms of Service - Copyright-violation.

"Google ads may not be displayed on websites with content protected by copyright law unless They have the Necessary Legal rights to display or to direct traffic That content. Some examples of copyrighted content might include mp3 and video files, television shows, software, comics, and literary works. "

So.... Some links posted are direct traffic to youtube videos that Are Copyrighted.
As result we lost our main financier.

Now i have deleted all link links on user posts (just because it's impossible to individually judge all the 72505 posts).

We will make an appeal to google to try to correct this situation.

SO: ALL YOUTUBE LINKS COINTAINING COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL ARE FORBIDDEN!!!
Any upload / post containing Copyright Stuff will be deleted and the author banned.
No rapidshare, fileserver, filesonic, mediafire, etc.... links!

Sorry for any inconvenience!
Thanks.

So one google service punishes you for the good faith use of another google service? That's pretty messed up.

Hope you get things sorted.

So, when we do our video manual for head case there will be a bunch of link videos. I wanted to be able to display them here. Would that still be possible, or do you need some special permissions from us for this?
Thanks

Hi. That's really a shame.. sorry to hear that.

Sorry if this is an inadequate question, but for what you have told in your post, I don´t understand why do you think this is a link related link.. Did they told you so? Maybe this was because of a link to soundcloud or another service like that. Also, maybe this is because of a cover song that someone recorded and posted a link to.... you know, this days you can get sued for copyright infringement even for teaching a copyrighted song to another person as part of a guitar lesson... this is getting really insane...

I hope you can clear things up to keep this cool forum going.

Best Regards

Sorry to hear about this site's difficulties. I wouldn't be surprised if this is just a mistake. Ultimately Google's only concern is their profit margins, and unfortunately it's far easier and cheaper for them just to issue a few termination notices to smaller sites like this rather than research each case on merit. At present, the system serves nobody (except Google) very well - real pirate sites are still using Adsense to make money for themselves and Google at the expense of artists (see here, for example), and yet innocent sites like this one can easily get unfairly punished.

Anyway, best of luck with the continued running of the site. Perhaps one of these alternatives to Adsense would serve just as well?

@brohym/mods...
Is this still the rule? No Youtube?

I posted a couple links to youtube videos the other day. There is a youtube button up top, so I thought that it was ok. If its not let be know and I'll remove them..

Only youtube links containing copyrighted material are forbidden. Of course you can post your own stuff! :)

Cheers

Stories about claims of music copyright infringement appear fairly regularly in Variety and other mainstream publications. Few of these disputes go to trial, and fewer still generate published judicial opinions. Since the 1850s federal courts have published over 100 opinions dealing with this issue, but the frequency with which these cases arise has increased markedly over the past twenty years. We will, of course, add new cases to the web site as they surface. With this modestly proportioned body of information we have organized the cases chronologically by year.
