This time, rather than spelling out what I have to say on my website, I’ve taken the fight to DRWHOremixer’s preferred battleground: YouTube. Please, watch my video here, and do whatever you can to help put a stop to this.
List of Stolen Remixes
Please send me an email or leave a comment on my video if you know of any other remixes to add to the list.
I woke up to some great news this morning, thanks to my friend Chris (HardWire). As it turns out, YouTube is honoring copyright claims from the original artists behind the work that DRWHOremixer has stolen. If your mix is one of the mixes DRWHOremixer has ripped off, please go to YouTube and submit a copyright claim for your mix. Once again, I implore you to take action and not let DRWHOremixer get away with this. Take those mixes down!
While YouTube will seemingly honor copyright claims, DRWHOremixer is now filing counterclaims which is getting the mixes put back online. The audacity of this individual continues to amaze. Unfortunately, while copyright claims may succeed in getting your mix taken down in the short term, it won’t actually hold up if challenged, as a special license must be purchased to distribute a cover version of a piece of music.
For anyone who has been affected by this DRWHOremixer fiasco, as well as those interested in charting its progress, I have set up a small email newsletter that anyone is welcome to subscribe to. I promise that this is in no way spam. It will only be used infrequently to provide updates and assistance for those affected, and possibly for any substantial news I have to share after this. I literally expect to use this maybe a few times a year, and you may unsubscribe at will. You may rest assured this will not be a typical impersonal mass mailing, and each update will be short, direct, and straight from me.
