Here is more info from my friend Steve at CCMNI, a Christian Songwriting Site. It was helpful to me so I thought I would share it:


The answer to all of this is not very clear, yet there is a good explanation. T, you might forward this to Diana and anyone else.
Unfortunately, there are two different situations happening here: the 'third party content' mess PLUS someone actually stealing Diana's music. They are not one in the same. Diana, you need to get a lawyer and have that lawyer send a CEASE AND DESIST letter to Ashton Grey. Get that song removed.

All of this mess is in regard to how music is being monetized in the digital realm, plus, it's easier than ever for anyone to take your music. So, for the simplest of reactions, simply pull your music if you'd like to, since there are no real clear explanations, and there is no real huge money involved. If any of you are putting your music up at any of these places and you don't have the song protected, shame on you. For the most part, people aren't stealing songs, but rather are re-posting other's songs in order to make money from their YouTube channels. That's really great news for you if your song is protected. If people are truly stealing your songs, then you had better go after them.

Check this out, below. This is what is going on with the whole 'third party content' mess.

CDBaby, Soundcloud, and Broadjam (probably more) have partnered with a few digital music companies (one of who is Rumblefish) to help with the id'ing of digital content. What CDBaby, for example, will do with their artists is to partner with Rumblefish. Rumblefish puts a digital stamp on the artist's music. Now any time that this song shows up at a third party delivery system, such as YouTube, the 'third party content' message will pop up because this is how YouTube handles this digital stamp.

As far as YouTube is concerned, you as the artist have two choices: ignore the 'third party content' message and do not dispute it (and this is what CD Baby and others recommend) because this is only telling you that the digital stamp is working. If you are the original author, then you have nothing to worry about. Rumblefish will keep counting the digital hits it receives whenever the song is played.

Here's the deal: if you plan on having a YouTube channel AND you intend on monetizing your channel, so you can take advantage of hits on YouTube, you will not be allowed to do so with any Rumblefish id'd songs, which leads to the second choice below:

The second choice you can make is to dispute the 'third party content' claim and tell them you are the original author. Now you can monetize your YouTube channel, if you desire.

Very confusing, for sure. But the simplest of all things remain: if you are going to post your songs in the internet, you had better have them copyrighted.

Yay, a great explanation. Yes, this is exactly right!

Cyndi Corkran posted 2 days ago

Yes, very succint, albeit, somewhat confusing to the novice, but clear as to first and formost.....copyright, before posint anything. Thanks Diana for posting, and again, good luck dear!

I had a song I had digitally distributed and then later used part of it on one of my youtube promotional videos... youtube sent me the 3rd party email... I contacted them as to my copyright, my contract for digital distribution, and that I produced not only the song, and it's distribution under my copyright, but also produced and directed the short video clip... it was agony and I finally gave up... I just pulled the video and used other music... crazy sometimes. Sometimes communicating with youtube has been less than satisfying, but still a great promo tool.

At this point Broadjam does not send songs through Rumblefish or any similar service.

Diana Rasmussen posted 2 days ago

Thank you Matt - I really appreciate the way you protect our songs and our music!

Cyndi Corkran posted 2 days ago

Yes, thanks Matt!

Well - talked with a lawyer...have to make a choice to pursue it or not - rates are high, and most of the time The offender may or may not take it down. She advised me that most of the time no monies will be granted. Great. Sometimes this music biz is just not right...I hate thieves!
