A lot of us on the web are having trouble with a group called "Music Publishing Rights Collecting Society" ( and before you tell me that's just a general term, its not. its a group with the same name as the general term.
"It's NOT a full-on copyright claim - its a claim for performance royalties by some of the Collecting Rights Societies, PRS, ASCAP, SABAM etc...." and " they have claimed copyright on a videogame video. As far as I know, this group was not involved in the videogame's development.
They also claimed videos of people playing the piano and a not-so-known band playing their own music. What's more, they claimed one of Bach's classical music. And as far as I know, Bach's music is in the public domain according to the US copyright law."
This one I found the most interesting: "I honestly have no idea how these guys can make a match to FIVE of my videos. I produced them myself, and the only third-party content that maybe I might have belongs to WMG, and they're not saying anything about my videos. I know for certain that neither "CS" or some "Music Publishing Rights Collecting Agency" has any more rights to my video than I do."
We would all appreciate it if "Music Publishing Rights Collecting Society" would stop making false copyright claims on other people's work.
