This is great! Thank you for the updates. We’re in buying mode, and it was nice knowing that your team is “on it” during rare occasions of glitching. And… thanks for making it easy to find super talents like those that have made it possible for millions of people to experience positive life change from my show LiveFearless.

I’m sure this can be cleaned up fast. With the amount of sales that take place here everyday and our huge amount of youtube user clients, I’m sure we would hear about this more if it were a ongoing problem. This is the first time I have seen someone post something like this, seems to be something only with your channel and no one else.

Yes Envato is usually great. I like the way it inspires more creativity by offering one place for artists and creators.

Hello Sambotta,

I am sorry you are having this bad experience. I must agree with you that this is a pretty serious problem and that something needs to be done. There are many authors making sales to producers that place their productions on YouTube. It is for many of us, one of our main markets.

I bet and hope that Envato moves on this issue. They are a very sensible company.

I wish you luck.

GuitarJock, thank you and I agree. Envato is good.

YouTube is asking if I am using copyrighted music (which it believes I do not have the rights to use). This is music I purchased “Licence” for in AudioJungle.

I am using my time to try to help promote and protect the talents and creators that do and will utilize the valuable Envato system. I think it is a good Marketplace that inspires creativity and better content for the world.

Yes. AudioJungle.

YouTube is asking if I am using copyrighted music (which it believes I do not have the rights to use). This is music I purchased in AudioJungle.

Everything loaded to YouTube is digitally “fingerprinted” including video, not just audio. This is knowledge has been openly shared with the public. I’ve seen presentations by YouTube that demonstrate this. The technology is beyond impressive. It can be a great resource when content is being stolen from us.

What if someone is working to destroy a reputation of someone famous? Well that’s been answered already… I’ve seen where all traces of videos others have posted on multiple channels have disappeared… all at the same time. This can be a good source of protection.

Other music used on any YouTube channel related to entities I work with has been custom created for work that we are involved in (and no one else). There are No Warnings or flags on those pieces of music (the ‘not from AudioJungle’ group).

The only music warnings are resulting from use of music licensed through AudioJungle. This should be a concern to all that create and/or license content content within the Envato marketplaces. An Envato Marketplace licence, unless the issue is addressed, is a potential source of a YouTube warning.

I am using my time to try to help promote and protect the talents and creators that do and will utilize the valuable Envato system. I think it is a good Marketplace that inspires creativity and better content for the world.

If the Envato system has chosen to be unaware of what can occur in YouTube, this is an issue that can grow. Scams happen often to those with channels in YouTube. We’ve had videos with more than one million views removed in favor of false accusers that are allowed to use our videos with 100% content created and owned by us. They were able to post our videos on multiple channels while we were not allowed to post our own content (the same videos) to our channels. They are simply jealous of the success that came from the risks, investments and countless work hours spent creating content that people like and share with friends and family. When you are successful, some will believe that your work… your lifetime of mastering your skills and practice to be the best at what you do… they think it’s unfair… or by some strange luck, so YouTube’s automated system is good most of the time… but sometimes jealous people are allowed to attack.

Sometimes, work by artists like you (and me) is stolen from by those that have not chosen to dedicate themselves to being the best at something. Instead, they were too busy drinking or partying or working a comfortable job while we were struggling to become the best at our art with no promise of success or money.

I am sorry that there are similar problems, I hope that this is a mistake, a misunderstanding, I think if you wrote to support, they are interested in a quick solution to this problem … Good luck!
Thank you Sinar. I contacted AudioJungle support hours ago. Automated response only. Until this has been completely resolved, purchases on each of the accounts are on hold.

We have already lost YouTube accounts with millions of views due to jealous bullies that utilized the automation in Google’s YouTube.

If the music talent has caused this warning, he should contact us directly. If the issue is not resolved, we will have no other choice except a return to 100% buyout terms – working through direct contracts with talent. In this way, copyright warnings would disappear. AudioJungle/Envato Marketplace should protect you and us from this type of bullying or automated flagging.

At this time, the AudioJungle page has posted:

Marketplace Members 1,880,246

Total Marketplace Items 1,994,441

It would appear that, with almost two million Marketplace Members, that a team would be available to work on urgent issues that can affect most of the license purchasers and those that will license music or other creative work through the Envato Marketplace.

Thank you for your very kind words.
I think the problem is easy fixable if the author or support would write to YouTube. Better to contact support about this. They are very very VERY slow and sometimes they tend to answer after the problem is no longer relevant, but there is no other alternative.

Support has already flagged my first post about this.
Well, that’s why I replied even if my input is not the most relevant. I do think that you have a problem to solve, not that you’re a “spam bot”.
Some time ago also my replies on this forum got same treatment and when I contacted support, they erased my posts and then told me “sorry, there is nothing we can do after a post is erased”... it turned out to be a wrong click, instead of “reply with quote” :D

This would be like Toyota not considering that tires are driven on roads.

Thank you for saying that, you’re kind. We are deeply concerned because we care about seeing the continued positive growth of the Envato Marketplaces. We’ve enjoyed being able to refer licence (license if you’re a U S native) purchasers because the system is simple, beautiful and pricing is at a place that allows newbies the chance to have high-quality artistic content for use in productions that will often lead to great success.

We understand that technology used by Google’s YouTube recognizes when a ‘fingerprint’ of any content is used on multiple channels. These patterns can cause flags since it likely assumes that if music or video pieces are common they are likely copyrighted. Most music available for sale through Google Play, iTunes and Amazon is already known by Google’s YouTube.

I do not have the exact solution. This is not the expertise that most of my work time is dedicated to. I do, however, want to see Envato Marketplaces enjoy continued growth. Envato has the resources and clout to be able to meet with the leaders at Google’s YouTube to create a positive solution that protects creators and licensees.

We purchased “Licence” on AudioJungle music. Now, YouTube warnings have occurred on use of those tracks. They are used within the acceptable use policy on positive, free to view projects. Will VideoHive “Licence” purchases attract YouTube flagging on free to view projects also?

Probably the Audiojungle forum’s the better place for that question, isn’t it?

What was the nature of the warnings and how does the person doing the warning know which licence you purchased?

I’m not quite sure why you use “Licence” in quotes. A licence is exactly what you receive when you purchase a Videohive product, and that entitles you to use it in one context, pretty much whereever you please (you need an extended licence if your product is for resale rather than broadcast – like a DVD , for instance).

I think you need to explain a bit more about the problem.
The reason we posted in VideoHive is similar to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSoS9bzpobo

Technology utilized by Google’s YouTube is advanced beyond description. We’ve been amazed at how it recognizes details of video that the human eye cannot see. Their engineers are beyond genius.

You are correct about the word licence. I did that for the benefit of some wonderful Teaching professionals that have been reared in the U S that pointed out the use of “Licence” instead of license. In the U S people tend to use “License” whether noun or a verb. In the UK, Licence is a noun. I’m laughing as I type… The new MacBook Pro is convinced I’ve made a spelling error.

As you know, your work is among my favorite. Anyone that purchases a licence from you to enhance a video may be at risk of receiving a warning or flag for use of copyrighted material.

Google’s YouTube, understandably, has software that knows when something in a video seems almost identical to videos on other channels. They’re simply trying to protect copyrighted work. If an element appears in multiple places, their software is likely attempting to verify and catalog the work just like with any piece of music.

A lot of people have loaded, for example, videos with music tracks and song lyrics created in After Effects. Automatically, something like this would appear below the video:

Artist: (name of artist) Buy ” (name of track) ” on: Google Play, iTunes, AmazonMP3

They would not be flagged because of the opportunity for actual sales of music tracks available through common channels like Google Play, iTunes and AmazonMP3. These channels have agreements for this service.

The concern is this: Google’s YouTube utilizes impressive futuristic technology which takes what can be described as ‘better than a fingerprint’ of every detail of every posted video. It can also warn about or flag video products. That’s why I’m posting here. We’ve referred purchasers to this marketplace, and we would not want them to experience the same issues that are being experienced because of AudioJungle track licence purchases.

In other words, the warnings from Google’s YouTube were specifically about the use of music, as if using outside of an AudioJungle licence. VideoHive creations may be subject to the similar technology on Google’s YouTube.

A good, more basic, lower tech example of this is using Google Images Search online. Load ANY photo and, amazingly, it may find either the SAME photo wherever else it exists online, or photos that are strikingly similar.

Your welcome. Anyone looking for amazing work for scoring a movie should hear your work!

Support has already flagged my first post about this. Envato/AudioJungle is already aware of this. For us Mihai, writing to YouTube would likely not produce a solution. Envato/AudioJungle has the ability to quickly correct these issues with Google’s YouTube.

We are shocked that this has occurred since Envato/AudioJungle “Licence” purchases are utilized throughout YouTube. This would be like Toyota not considering that tires are driven on roads.

There was a similar case some months ago. I believe that’s caused by youtube’s automatic comparing software because something is similar to something else (probably coincidentally). Hope you explain this fast!

Yes, the technology is amazing. So amazing that it accurately recognizes music and video elements. In this situation, they’ve sent warnings, specifically about the music.

With a market place of 1,994,358 items, it’s time for Envato to figure this out and create a non-bullying atmosphere.

If a song available for sale through forums it has partnership with, it would place this underneath the YouTube video:

Artist:

Buy ” (name of track) ” on: Google Play, iTunes, AmazonMP3

Bullying on YouTube is a serious matter. The technology at YouTube is more advanced than most would imagine or believe. It’s as simple as Envato/AudioJungle taking the time to address the issue with YouTube while providing us, the purchasers of “Licence” with whatever is necessary to prevent this before YouTube flags our videos.

Until the existence of AudioJungle, we still paid directly for most of our music needs. This is the most convenient and sensible way to purchase “Licence” which also helps to promote talent.

Risking our YouTube reputation is not the way to increase your AudioJungle sales.
