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 must say that chatGPT is extremely helpful in writing the affidavit I need for the restraining order against google/youtube.

I had a phone conversation with my lawyer that lasted almost an hour. In consultation with my lawyer, we will obtain a temporary injunction against Youtube and simultaneously initiate legal proceedings. I will have to lay out the costs first and they will be several thousand euros, and I will also demand compensation. If I win, I will not have to bear these costs, of course.

Donations would help, but I see no new donations. It's a shame. Words only. As always one has to fight a battle like this alone.

Meanwhile: I have been able to interest a welknown Dutch tech publicist in your case. We are communicating. Hopefully it will result in some high-profile publicity for your case

This is the ridiculous last answer my lawyer got from Youtube. You get the feeling that there are only bots working everywhere.

This is how Youtube works. All automated!
Interesting: https://transparencyreport.goo...

It's not a "Team", it's a bot.

I made some temporary changes to the download window. F*** Youtube.

I updated the Privacy Policy Page and removed Adsense, Analytics and Recaptcha: https://filmmusic.io/privacy-p...

I don't trust GOOGLE anymore. Also, how can you trust a company that arbitrarily deletes content? That's why I have removed all GOOGLE services from this website:

1. google Analytics (almost never looked in anyway).
2. recaptcha (doesn't matter here)
3. google Adsense (for 1,50 Eur daily I don't allow google advertising here anymore)

Another small advantage: Since I don't include any external services anymore, the annoying cookie banner is also gone. The site is also now much faster for everyone. I will find a new solution to finance this site - even if it's only the donations.

It may also not be a bad idea in general to dissolve all dependencies prior to any pending lawsuit.

Financial damage: Loss of advertising revenue since the first Youtube emails were sent. I have marked in yellow when the first emails were reported to me. In the last few days, the ad revenue was only a paltry 1-2 euros per day. If the trend continues, it will not be possible without donations to continue to operate this website without me having to pay something privately.

Downloads and plays on this website also have dropped about 50-70%.

It is insane. On Reddit some poeple write that I would steal music from other artists like Kevin MacLeod: https://www.reddit.com/r/youtube/comments/1590ep6/comment/jtxo6t9/?context=3

The (sad?) truth is: Kevin MacLeod earns more money monthly through Filmmusic.io than I have only through advertising revenue here to finance the whole website. Kevin MacLeod gets 100% of his earnings and does not have to give anything to Filmmusic - like every artist: https://filmmusic.io/artist/ap...

Hey, but that's okay. It was always my goal to offer small artists a platform where they can offer their music with 100% self-determination. Did you know that artists on other sites like Audiojungle have to give up to 60% of their earnings?

Why I am doing this? Because this is not a for-profit website, this website is just my hobby - not my job. I do not live off this website and never intend to. I am a programmer in the automotive industry and just have fun with music - and fun when others have fun with it.

The whole situation with Youtube is really pissing me off more and more every day. I guarantee that I will sue Youtube next week for all this stress - and if I have to spend all the rest of the money on the Filmmusic account for it: It's worth it to me when a big company simply has no regard for content creators.

There seems to be a reddit about this: https://www.reddit.com/r/youtube/comments/1590ep6/youtube_copyright_striking_videos_with_link_to/

After Swaggy Shane's channel was blocked because of links to Filmmusic.io, see: https://filmmusic.io/u/SaschaE...

... he has appealed to Youtube. Here is the email from Youtube as a screenshot. Youtube confirmed (as always) that it was a mistake by Youtube.

Swggy Shane's channel was indeed blocked and is now available again: https://www.youtube.com/channe...

The whole situation is slowly becoming almost unsurpassable in terms of absurdity.

It is ridiculous and unbelievable at the same time. A first user, who already received an email in advance on 2.5 July because of a link to Filmmusic, now tells me that his channel (with 1 video and 2 shorts) has been deleted from Youtube. The user has appealed and will keep me updated on any news.
