A few weeks back I described a frustration I ran into as a YouTube creator. To get the background story you should probably read that post first. Even though I had done things the “right way” and only used properly licensed stock music in my videos, I still got slapped with copyright claims on several of my videos from a company call IndMusic. IndMusic, as it turns out, has been a source of frustration for both composers who create stock music and video creators who license and use that music. As I mentioned in the previous post, I had reached out to Partners in Rhyme, the stock music vendor from which I purchased the music, to see if they would give me some help. As it turns out, they did. Within a day or two I got a response from Mark Lewis at Partners in Rhyme. He requested all the information surrounding the problem: the videos in question, the company filing the claim, and the music they were claiming as theirs’. Mark worked with the author (and presumably with IndMusic) and all the claims were dropped a week or two later. This adds a new level of credibility to Partners in Rhyme. Not only did they sell me the stock music, they also stood behind it when things went wrong. Thanks to Mark’s efforts, my cardboard boat fishing video is back online with the disputed music, and I’ve deleted the video with a different music track that I had temporarily posted as a workaround. Speaking of cardboard boats, I also have produced a video on how to build one, and I have another blog post with a few construction details.

Open Shot video editor on Linux. Seems to do the job well…
