I understand and accept copyright laws with actual material that is subject to ownership and distribution by said corporations like Warner, but this is different I believe. I'm wondering if you agree with me or disagree with me. So take Hotel California by the Eagles. A musician buys the backing track, it's just a lick library backing track. I record my guitar playing on top of it and upload it to youtube. It gets taken down by Warner. Are they seriously making it illegal for us to do this? I'm just so wound up about it all! So it's a criminal offense to post a video of you playing guitar on top of a backing track? Do you guys believe it should be allowed or what? I think it's so sincerely harsh and out of line with musics good graces that they take down a video like this.. it's just pure admiration for the song and I learned the solo on guitar and paid for the backing track.. and yet I can't post it on youtube? - so harsh in my opinion. What about my other videos with backing tracks, why have they been allowed? - it wreaks of bullshit and I'm angry. So many others upload videos too with backing tracks, and they're allowed? If I file a claim against the copyright, I could be sued for doing so and it suggest seeking legal aid. So should backing tracks be allowed to be used? EDIT: Are they seriously classing a public performance as a youtube video of a kid in his room rocking out on a Les Paul? .. fucking wow! I hate these pigs.
