As you may have heard – YouTube has some sort of software that scans all the videos on their site and checks copyright. We thought it was just a bunch of interns but maybe its true – we got this email this morning for a video we posted 2 years ago on the site:

Dear PiersFawkes,

Your video “Urban Spam” has been identified by YouTube’s Content Identification program as containing copyrighted content which Domino Records claims is theirs.

Your video “Urban Spam” is still available because Domino Records does not object to this content appearing on YouTube at this time. As long as Domino Records has a claim on your video, they will receive public statistics about your video, such as number of views. Viewers may also see advertising on your video’s page.

Claim Details:
Copyright owner: Domino Records
Content claimed: Some or all of the audio content
Policy: Allow this content to remain on YouTube.

* Place advertisements on this video’s watch page.

Applies to these locations:

Domino Records claimed this content as a part of the YouTube Content Identification program. YouTube allows partners to review YouTube videos for content to which they own the rights. Partners may use our automated video / audio matching system to identify their content, or they may manually review videos.

If you believe that this claim was made in error, or that you are otherwise authorized to use the content at issue, you can dispute this claim with Domino Records and view other options in the Video ID Matches section of your YouTube account. Please note that YouTube does not mediate copyright disputes between content owners. Learn more about video identification disputes.

Sincerely,
The YouTube Content Identification Team

It’s very interesting to see that Domino Records actually values the content being on the web and are trying to make money from the use of their content indirectly. Here’s the video by the way:
