I have recently deleted all my videos on YouTube because of the way major music publishing corporations abuse the content ID system (claiming my own covers of their songs, that were made with 100% free for commercial use software/samples/instruments). I think YouTube is hurting independent musicians by letting big record labels steal their revenues. I strongly encourage NOT using YouTube (it’s hard since it’s like Matrix, difficult to get away from). At this point I recommend using Dailymotion and other video platforms.
