Just a word of warning..... I received a copyright infringement notice in Youtube because of my cover of Platinum. Mike removed it.
Honestly I feel disappointed because the only reason i posted that cover was out of admiration towards him, and never intended to take any profit.
I am posting here in case any of you have any cover posted in Youtube................... I have also removed my Crises and Guilty covers.
Feeling a bit like s**t honestly
WARNING: RANT AHEAD.
I still can't get over this after 2 days.
So I spent like a month on Platinum out or respect and admiration towards my hero, I post the results on Youtube and after 3 years, it gets removed by my hero himself. Now let's keep a few thinks under consideration:
- I do not monetize my videos
- First thing in the video description is a statement that the only reason why I did it is a a tribute towards my hero. Last thing in the description is an Amazon link to purchase the Deluxe Edition of Platinum (the original, of course)
- I posted the video when I made it literally everywhere, and I even sent a message to Mike's personal facebook page. So one way or anotherm he's been aware of its existance since the beginning. he made no comment (which I completely understand).
- 3 years after, and right when the video is about to reach 100000 hits, it gets deleted by him. Again......
Yes a cover is a copyright infringement. I understand this so I can't really complain.
But really......... if I am not making a pence out of it (and no intention of it), and I state that it is a tribute -because that's what it is really-. And Most specially...when there's hundreds of other tributes in Youtube, WHY MINE ???? Is it so offensive to post a cover out of admiration ??? Really ?????????
I understand covers are something people are very passionate about it. Some like them, some hate them.......
I have been a fan of Mike since I can remember, and Platinum is possibly my favorite record of all time.............but I am saddened beyond words.
I can't cope with this......specially abou te fact that he personally removed my cover (but most of the other ones I know from other people are still up there............)
