Frivolous youtube ©opyright DMCA fair use incidental background music vs. deliberate infringement re-upload theft fri 17 july 2015

Hi GEORGE GODLEY WORLD RECORD VIDEOBLOGGER.COM LIFELOG, Due to a copyright claim, you are no longer monetizing the following YouTube video[s]. It is still playable on YouTube, but the copyright owner could choose to show ads on it [them].

[“Background music is incidental to capturing video. The google YouTube guidelines page even has a big piece from American university about fair use of background music in vlogging. It is legally recognized that incidental music in public is unavoidable in vlogging and is therefore allowed. If possible, they do suggest you attribute the music in your upload but this is rarely possible. You can look under copyright on terms of service, then American University.”- comment under ping pong dim sum chinese dumplings lazy sunday sun 24 feb 2013 George Godley London U.K 00311e.mp4 ]

Dear youtube, yesterday you sent me 2 ©opyright claims, on 2 fair use comment & incidental background music george godley videos with 20 & 40 views on them, saying they will be monetized for the ©opyright owner.

Please do the same for my ©opyrighted infringed content which was stolen, re-uploaded & re-titled without consent:

“Street Fight: Racist Lesbian Feminist Calls Bouncer “Black Cunt””  787,186 views, [youtube removed this clip monday 27 july 2015 a week after this email & blog post] and

“i’m a stud” 6,675 views.

Please do not take them down, just monetize them for me like you do for everyone else. I didn’t see this option on the dmca ©opyright report form.

youtube © dmca form P1040810

Could you also please pay my George Godley Fullscreen partner account earnings that were stopped for the past year. I was extremely distraught at the disappearance of 11,000 george godley videos due to pagination removal, video manager & “load more” button limits, & breach of contract & wrongful termination of geogodley account.

Sincerely Geo Godley
