Well, ya just never know who looks at (and in this case, listens to) your online stuff. I’ve had this little video on YouTube for the last couple years. It’s more of a slide show than a video really .. made up of still images dissolving into each other, and put to music. As of today, the video has received over 56,000 views.
I was informed today by YouTube that my video has been blocked because of a copyright infringement claim against the audio track by UMG. Although I was able to quickly replace the audio with a copyright-free song provided by YouTube, the video just isn’t the same.
The song in question was ”November Rain” .. one of my favourite songs.
Was I wrong to use it? Absolutely .. and I sincerely apologize to GnR for doing that. I guess I thought of it more as a tribute to an awesome song.
And it doesn’t matter if they took exception with my use of the song because I’m a T-girl or not .. I apologize to the band, Universal Music Group and/or the song owner.
And for the record, I still think Mr. Rose is kinda cute!
