Why we remove songs from uploaded episodes to YouTube

red-logo-white-smallThis blog post explains why we remove songs from episodes we upload to YouTube.

The answer is quite simple, the copyright owners of the songs that were removed, are not permitting us to upload these tracks to our YouTube account, copyright owners/record labels, have the right to decide what happens if someone uses their content in videos on YouTube, if we upload something that the copyright holder does not let us upload, the video will be blocked worldwide, or the audio in the video will be muted.

You know if a song has been removed when a title comes on the video, which says something along the lines of, “Last song removed due to copyright” this may also be why it takes so long for episodes to appear on our website, because we have to go through the entire re edit, re recompression and re upload of these videos.

We hope this blog post answers your question on why we remove songs from our YouTube videos.
