Rules for avoiding strikes
« on: March 06, 2011, 10:48:26 AM »
1. Don't dub over the MV. This will avoid 50% or your problems. It's neat, it looks cool! However, not technically an integral part of what we do and, in fact, we were making fan karaokes LONG before youtube was even invented. If you really have to, create an unlisted account and link to your dubbed MVs secretly, in an annotation or something (they might catch on to that one day, however . . . we'll never know.)

SOME companies are okay with you using their MVs or concert performances. Reference this thread for detailed information.

2. Write ????? in the TITLE. Not the tags, not the description. ????? means "I tried to sing" in Japanese and is what the Japanese use when they cover a song online. The Japanese companies aren't going to take the time to read your description or even understand what "cover" or "fandub" means. ?????, title, that's it. The Korean equivalent of ?????/cover is *SOMEONE TELL ME* and the Chinese is ??. If anyone has any other languages to contribute, please do so!

3. DO NOT link to an MP3 in your description. If the company sees the link, they might assume it's the original. Have an all inclusive link to your discography or something on your channel page and inform dubbers to visit said channel page in your vid description. You can do this just by linking to a box.net folder or creating a google document/blog post that links to all your MP3s individually, something like that.

Do these things and you'll have smooth sailing :D

the Chinese version of that would be ?? (which means 'cover')

update: this method has stopped working, apparently.
My YUI cover of the song "Rain" has just been taken down today.
It's a video of me singing (not a PV or anything) and I put ????? in the title.
GAHHH i hate YT.

WOW that's ridiculous. I don't think that's even like . . . legal, well, it probably is but who the fuck is going to rock out to your cover o fit rather than find the original. What company was that?
