IDOL (Independent Distribution On Line) claiming copyright on a video Brazinger 12/18/11 3:31 PM
Greetings!

I uploaded Episode 5 of my Assassin's Creed playthrough series and suddenly  got a copyright claim from  IDOL (Independent Distribution On Line) about audio.

Who or what is that? I have never heard of them and I have noticed, that I'm not the only one having problems with this same entity - There have been posts around about other games as well.

I didn't use any 3rd party audio - All of it was in the game.

My guess is that it's this French company:


Searching around it looks like they  may have the distribution rights for Jesper Kyd's music in Assasin's Creed 2.

But the video in question is from Assassin's Creed 1 - Do they have the rights for this one as well? If so, why didn't they claim copyright on all of the videos.

And companies themselves say, that playthrough videos with no 3rd party audio / music is allowed - That's all I do! I never use any 3rd party content.

You are the party of the first part, YouTube is the party of the second part. Unless that music spontaneously appeared (creation science?) then whoever owns the copyright on the music is the 3rd party. Unless you wrote and performed the music, there will always be a 3rd party.

If You count it that way, then yes.


But still - Playthrough videos are allowed and this Episode 5 still got a copyright claim.
