To label this blog late is an understatement. I told you guys I would report when Ascension came out, which as of this post is two weeks ago, so needless to say, I'm late. But life happens and sometimes things get over looked. Now I'm proud of the video, but I want to take some time to talk about the YouTube of it all. For the score of the short I used some royalty free music I found online and was flagged when posting the video. YouTube gave the ability to dispute it and this is where my issues come in. It turns out that the way YouTube lets you dispute a claim against you is they tell the people who has the claim that you disagree with it and they decided if it is valid or not. Now If they decide that the claim is valid than they make all the money that your video brings in. Why on Earth would they ever say anything other than it's valid? That's money in their bank for doing nothing. Now YouTube gives you another chance to fight it but they give you the warning that if you lose again your account will be affected. So basically it is their way of saying fuck you to creators. It's a really messed up system that makes no sense but I guess it lets them off the hook and that's all they seem to care about, making money and not dealing with bullshit. Which to sum up is everything that is wrong with the world today. Just my two cents, but hey, you guys can watch the video so please do and I hope you enjoy!
