Facebook is removing videos with copyright content such as videos and background music. Just this week, a video I created when my family and I cut down the xmas tree in 2008 (uploaded Dec. 29, 2008) got removed proactively due to the Feliz Navidad song I used for background music. I’ve seen YouTube do that before and some sites that just remove the audio track depending on what part of the video has the copyright material. You must acknowledge the message or file a counter if you think they are incorrect.
Here is a snapshot of the message I received when I logged into Facebook today (also received it via email):
Has this happened to you? What do you think Facebook should do since I assume they are getting told by the music companies? Add a comment below. Thanks and have a great week.
