As a musician and composer with a lifelong passion for creating original compositions, I have dedicated myself to honing my keyboard skills and expanding my musical abilities since the age of seven. While I initially focused on playing from sheet music, I quickly became drawn to the challenge and excitement of developing my own melodies.

In the early stages of my musical journey, I utilized a Sony Mini Disc Recorder to record and manipulate sounds in order to create my own songs. Although the results were far from polished at that time, they provided a solid foundation for my continued development as a musician.

With the advent of home recording technology in 2011, I began producing my own music using either Cubase Studio or FL Studio, depending on the genre. To date, I have created over 600 original songs, and I am committed to demonstrating that even unknown artists can achieve recognition and success without the support of a record label. Filmmusic.io, a platform that showcases the work of independent musicians like myself, is a testament to this belief.

In addition to my work as a musician, I also enjoy exploring other creative pursuits such as photography, drones, and film production. My diverse range of interests and passions contribute to my holistic approach to creativity and self-expression.

I'm going to take a few days off from here and be available again starting Monday. I really need to start taking care of other things again.

I have been thinking (and calculating). Two hours after I informed by tweet the highst political levels about ghidra issue linked to filmmusic.io issue, your issue was fixed. No further problems with ghidra either. Coincidence or Google/YouTube panic?

Since Youtube's problem seems to be solved for the time being and I also haven't received any more emails from users since yesterday evening, I discussed the following with my lawyer: We will not apply for the preliminary injunction, but the lawsuit will be filed as planned.

The download notices have now been reset, as Youtube seems to have fixed the problem.

A user sent this to me about a minute ago. I do not know how the user found this link. This is the first time google has officially commented on this issue. https://support.google.com/you...

Open questions:
- Has it really been fixed? I don't trust Youtube anymore after the last weeks.
- In the forwarded emails, all sorts of links to filmmusic.io (also music tracks) were warned by Yotube, not just the license link. Has that also been fixed? The statement only talks about license links.
- What guarantee is there that this will not happen again?

Even if google now officially admits this after a few weeks, it unfortunately does not change the fact that a lot of damage has been done: Be it costs, my time, the reputation of the site or even the confusion and fear on the part of all users.

Honestly, google, why did it take so long? And the most important question: How can something like this happen at all, that an automated system gets out of hand in such an uncontrolled way?

And the most important question for me: Why is there no competent contact person to solve such things fast? Youtube support was not even able to answer a request from my lawyer.

I have programmed notifications here now a bit more comofortable:

1. you don't have to refresh the web page anymore. If you have new messages, this is automatically displayed in the upper right corner.
2. if you have new messages, you will see this now also in the browser tab as a number. For example, the title will say "(3) Dashboard", which means that you have three new messages.
3. if you click on "Mark all as read", the display on the web page will also be updated automatically.

A much loved fish (angelfish) from one of our aquariums passed away today. R.I.P. Forever.
Things are starting to get crazy. Youtube now even classifies websites of government institutions as fraud :D

Would the NSA perhaps like to join my lawsuit against google/youtube? Then we could save a bit of costs.

I have a meeting with my attorney tomorrow for final corrections to my draft. Then I hope that as soon as possible the injunction against Youtube/google goes out and the lawsuit is started.

By the way, even today I was forwarded emails that Youtube sent TODAY. Thank you for forwarding me the emails.

Here it is: The explanation why the link for an appeal in Youtube's emails almost never works.

One user had direct contact with Youtube Partner Support. This case also confirms that Youtube has made mistakes and admits them (upon request).

There really does seem to be a battle going on here between "bot out of bounds" and employees who are "straightening everything out". Is this the future that artificial intelligence is supposed to bring us? Has the battle against AI already begun behind the scenes at YouTube?

Imagine you find yourself imprisoned at the slightest suspicion from an AI, and you only get out if you prove your innocence. Isn't it usually the case that one is presumed innocent until proven guilty? Thanks to AI, this paradigm is now being flipped.

YouTube essentially considers you guilty first, only to say later: Oh, sorry, actually not.

After almost 6 hours of work I have finished a 25 page document which is necessary for the filing of an injunction and the lawsuit. What an unnecessary work. Actually I had planned to work on new songs after the vacation - somehow nothing came of it until now.

Anyway, thanks for all your emails, this was extremely helpful for the evidence.

I'm curious how it will go on now, it doesn't happen every day that a small man sues a big company like google.

Here is a summary from chatGPT of my work today:


In the document, the author asserts that YouTube is unjustifiably removing links to their website, filmmusic.io, from the platform. This removal of links, in the author's opinion, forces users of their music to potentially infringe on the terms of the CC BY 4.0 License, as they can no longer comply by providing the required attributions to the music and the license.

The author contends that YouTube's actions are damaging to their business and reputation, as the removal of links and misrepresentations result in considerable harm to their company and good standing. Moreover, it also affects the authors of the music published on the website, as the CC BY 4.0 License provides exposure for these authors by making the music accessible to other users. These actions by YouTube, therefore, significantly reduce this promotional effect, leading to a loss of revenue for the authors.

Furthermore, YouTube's behavior has considerable long-term impacts on the trust of users in the author's website. By misrepresenting the website and removing links to it, it becomes more challenging for users to utilize music from the site in the future. This not only has immediate impacts on the author's business but also harms their future business prospects and the growth of their website.

The author also mentions instances where users who received a pattern email from YouTube and lodged an immediate protest, in some cases, quickly received confirmation from YouTube that the links to the website did not violate their community guidelines. This points towards faulty automated decision-making on YouTube's part. Additionally, the link to lodge a protest, included in YouTube's emails, often led to an error page, denying users the chance to lodge their protest.

There have even been cases where a user's YouTube channel was automatically deleted after linking to filmmusic.io. After the affected user lodged a protest, the channel was restored, and YouTube admitted that no breach of their guidelines had occurred, further pointing to YouTube's mistaken judgments and inappropriate actions against users of the website and the website itself.

The author notes a significant decrease in downloads, plays, and other statistical values on their website by up to 50% following these emails and actions from YouTube. They also had to spend considerable time and resources to find temporary solutions and mitigate the impacts of YouTube's damaging actions, which greatly increased their workload and resulted in less time for regular business activities.

The author also points out that YouTube operates its own "YouTube Audio Library" and does not rule out that these actions by YouTube may be an attempt to eliminate or reduce competition.

In conclusion, given the reasons and evidence provided, the author demands an injunction against YouTube to stop the false representation of their website and allow users to set links to their website, filmmusic.io, in accordance with the terms of the CC BY 4.0 License.

Filmmusic.io had 767,044 page views from 189 countries in July, an average stay time of 3:37 minutes, and can be classified as globally popular with a worldwide Alexa Rank of 77817.

It's honestly the first time I've had to compile such data in detail. But it is interesting.
