Steven Crowder, the online news and entertainment personality famous for his “Louder with Crowder” show and stunts at left wing college campuses throughout the United States, has been punished by YouTube’s copyright system for a parody video he says was entirely original and held no copyrighted content.
In episode 459 of “Louder with Crowder”, a parody song was used that sounded similar to the song “Calling Dr. Love” by KISS. Warner Chappell, the legal arm of Warner Music Group, determined this constituted a copyright violation, and requested YouTube to take immediate action against Crowder.
Typically, if a video holds copyrighted music, the person who created the video will receive no compensation for the ads played during or before the video. This money instead goes to the copyright holder.
In this case, Crowder will receive no compensation from YouTube for the hour-long show he starred in and produced, which featured various right wing guests from around the world, including Paul Joseph Watson. Instead, Warner Chappell would be paid for Crowder’s work due to the copyrighted content.
While many would consider it absurd for an hour long video’s profits to be handed over because of a three-minute song, the absurdity is compounded by the fact that Crowder did not use the song. His production team created an original track that shared similarities with the original.
In other words, Crowder’s video was demonetized because audio used in his show sounded similar to audio owned by the Warner Chappell.
Crowder then took the extraordinary step of appealing this decision, which if done frequently, can lead to the termination of a YouTube account.
Unfortunately for the online content producer, his appeal was immediately denied not by YouTube, but by Warner Chappell.
So now Youtube and complicit corporations will LITERALLY take down a video for including a direct parody track that we CREATED FROM SCRATCH! This system needs fixing. Now. pic.twitter.com/JrBNGRrsyP

Because Warner Chappell denied his appeal, claiming they do indeed own the music in the video even though it is an originally produced track created by Crowder’s team, Crowder’s account is in jeopardy. YouTube is giving Crowder 7 days to reverse his appeal and allow all profits generated from the video to be garnished by Warner Chappell, otherwise, YouTube will delete his video and place a “copyright strike” on his account.
With only three copyright strikes, YouTube accounts can be placed in a limited state, or even terminated.
This creates an environment where YouTube content creators are expected to simply bow and submit to any large company or individual claiming copyright. YouTube itself does not mediate disputes, and instead allows the party alleging it has been injured to make all determinations.
This would be akin to allowing any person in civil court to act as plaintiff and judge: they claim they were wronged, and then immediately judge in their own favor.
Many YouTubers, including the iconic channel PewDiePie, have lamented YouTube’s copyright system.
In a video posted earlier this year, the YouTuber revealed how the copyright strike system can be used not only by large corporations to harass independent content creators, but also by individuals on YouTube as a tool to censor speech they disagree with.
Tucker Carlson LIGHTS UP Stooge Senator Mumbai Mike Lee for Big Tech Cheap Labor Giveaway
Mike Lee has spearheaded a massive cheap labor provision for Big Tech.
Tucker Carlson took down Utah Senator Mike Lee in a blistering monologue on his Thursday night show. Lee spearheaded a cheap labor provision to eliminate per-country caps on annual H-1B visa green cards through the Senate earlier this week, effectively monopolizing the H-1B system for nationals of large countries such as India. Big tech monopolies such as Apple, Google, and Facebook have aggressively lobbied what Lee called the “Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act,” seeking to replace their American workforce with a new supply of cheaper and compliant foreign labor.
The bill was passed without any public hearings, & will reward Big Tech’s appetite for cheap indentured labor. pic.twitter.com/6kxQ8BwnBq

“It will give them the bulk of all employment-based green cards- up to 90%. What will that do to you and your kids? Let’s say you would like your kids to graduate from college, with all the debt they have, and get a high paying job in technology? Much less likely now. That job is going to go to someone from another country.”
Tucker also called out Republican Kevin Cramer, who served as Lee’s point man in jamming through the cheap labor provision in the Senate.
Senator @kevincramer only cares about the interests of Big Tech executives.
Companies like Microsoft love the H-1B visa because it provides them with indentured labor that will work for less than market wages in exchange for Green Cards. American workers are negatively impacted pic.twitter.com/MNE94dmTJN

“This is all unfolding at a time when we have the highest unemployment rate since you’ve lived in this country… And yet the United States Senate-led by the Republicans- has made it easier for foreigners to take high paying jobs. White collar jobs. The jobs you actually want your kids to have. If Silicon Valley gets its way, it’ll be the first and last immigration bill this administration signs off on. Hope it isn’t. And you should remember who did it. Mike Lee.”
The bill is expected to receive approval in the House. It will fall upon President Trump to veto the Big Tech globalist immigration bill.
These business Republicans are prioritizing a Silicon Valley visa worker giveaway as millions of Americans face unemployment in the coronavirus economy. It’s no coincidence that Big Tech’s cheap labor operative has earned the moniker of “Mumbai Mike.”
