Will Youtube take my video down if I used a backing track that is not made professionally, played over it and uploaded to Youtube?

In addition will that hurt my chances of being a Youtube partner? Or do I have to upload something that is 100% original.

So in other words, I can only write my own songs to be totally free of copyright infringement?

just say that you didnt write and you dont own the song


That does nothing.

No one will notice, just do it.

I don't think it would be illegal by using a back track.

It is only drums and bass as a fundamental basis after all... that's not crediting to the song as a cover is it? it's just drums and bass with the same timing. Even so youtube moderators would have to be super sharp to find that a discrimination.

Youtube will surely notice it if I send an application to become a Partner.

YouTube partner

That'd fuck things up, if every uploader was given some shares.

I think as long as you give credit to the composer and say its a cover then they will have no problem with you as a partner.

Unless he's playing along to it to teach people the song, that doesn't hold water.

Personal use is protected under that.

AND, he could always put lesson in the video title, making it valid.

Personal use means personal use - not uploading it to YouTube for as many people as possible to see it.

If he wants to make it a lesson, then fine, but then he can't ask for C4C in the description or comments.


Though he'll probably be fine

i have covers over the original song and it's fine...they'll usually just advertise to buy the song off itunes or amazon

What if I played the song, and then have a lesson video responded to it.

In other words
I play the song with a non-professional backing track.
Then I upload another video, as lesson of how to play that particular song.

I have like 20 covers up any they haven't done anything to mine. You should be fine.

You won't get to become a youtube partner unless you have thousands of subscribers.
