[up]x2 I didn't either. It still seemed like conspiracy theory bullshit to me.
"It's so hard to be humble, knowing how great I am."
Remember, conspiracies happen everyday. They're just usually caused by stupidity rather than malice.

Any updates on the situation?

The it-thingy
Yeah. Google+ integration is the kind of idea pulled out of the arse of a company that's desperate to fight for Facebook market share, because social media is the Next Big Thing and Google is desperately struggling to retain its status as "the Internet company."
Which is sadly hilarious, because last I checked Facebook is still slowly failing to effectively correlate its massive userbase to advertisements they will actually click on at rates that advertisers will happily pay for. Google is an advertising company first and foremost and perfectly positioned to take over that role - all they really need to do is keep G+ available and wait for Facebook to starve, unless they get impatient and drive everyone away first.

Anyone who doesn't look dangerous is dangerous and sneaky.

The question is:

When YouTube completely devours itself, will it disappear or become twice as big?
Your Honor...

[up][up]I am willing to bet an internetz cookie of your choice that that situation ISN'T the only one out there where a creator is getting skull humped by Youtube due to a shit Content ID claim that they want nothing to do with because of a video of their own work.

And Google ain't changing their minds. No siree bob. Apart from this all being complete fucking idiocy it is also rather sad. What the hell happened to don't be evil? Did it suddenly change to don't get caught being evil in public or something?
Yes. It's been like that for large businesses for a long, long while. Even being caught in public isn't that bad for them.

Couldn't the people who own their content and are still getting done up like a kipper for their videos by this Content ID shit not get together and do a class action suit against Google and the offending companies who are filing spurious claims?

Re: the list: It would be a better idea for there to be 2 columns: Postable and Profitable (i.e. you can monetize). An example the site itself lists:

For instance, 2K games lets you make & share videos, but not monetize them. So that's a "NO" to the above question.

Blog post from someone I sorta know on the subject who has a video taken down and has been fighting to get it back up.

In summary, it seems like A: If you're not part of a network, it's nigh-impossible to get a human response, B: Youtube may be going above and beyond what's called for regardless of the rights holders giving permission.

Still just awesome like that

To be fair, that's hardly unique to YouTube and is pretty much just a facet of the modern world of customer service.

Maybe, but it's particularly endemic in Google-run enterprises. Sometimes I think Google trusts in the power of algorithms so much that they're blind to the cases where it's a really bad idea.
Not gonna lie, after reading through this entire thread, I'm convinced that Youtube's autochecking system has gained sentience, has turned evil, and is now actively trying to screw over as many people as possible.

[up][up] The #1 thing I've learned from studying IT in college is that computers absolutely hate people, to the point that Terminator's robot apocalypse could actually happen.

I wouldn't be surprised at that, actually.
At least it's just a thing that detects copyright'd material rather than something that controls missile systems.

[up]For the moment. We hope.

Not a bug!
Well, if you wanted confirmation that this was beyond Google's control, we have it: the system is now flagging public domain music.

It's settled, then. Content ID doesn't work and needs to be euthanized.

I still trying to figure out why Youtube refuses to admit there is something wrong. The system is broken. It is obviously broken. Things like [up][up][up] shows how crazy the thing is. What do they gain by insisting it is everything fine? The current status quo can't be sustainable in the long run. Wouldn't be better for the to admit the mistaken and promise they are working on fixing it?

It hasn't worked for a long time now, its not working is just in overdrive now.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
