The embattled Big Tech Giant is facing backlash from content creators and fans after allowing a Colombian record label to claim copyright ownership of an artist’s original work.
YouTube artist TheFatRat says the platform is allowing Ramjets Group, a possibly fictitious record label in Medellín, Colombia, to claim copyright ownership of a two year old song created entirely by the artist. After attempting to explain his ownership of the music to YouTube, the company denied his appeal, and proceeded to give all future money made from the video to Ramjets Group.
Ramjets Group, the entity responsible for the complaint, describes itself as a record label with 11-50 employees located in Colombia. Google Maps reveals the address posted to the company’s LinkedIn to be a garbage strewn residential street in a poor part of the city, and the company’s Twitter account was only used twice in 2014, when its LinkedIn suggests it was founded.
TheFatRat took to Twitter to express his frustration with the situation “Are you f*cking kidding me YouTube,” he wrote, “This is my f*cking song!”

In a series of followup tweets, the artist revealed he is exploring the situation with his legal team, as YouTube says it will not assist in further mediation of the copyright dispute.
TheFatRat also expressed his frustration with YouTube, calling the platform’s attitude “mind blowing”, and describing the company’s copyright policy as anti-content creator.
The more I learn about the @YouTube copyright protection system, the more I learn how much it works against content creators.
Time to start a petition!

The YouTube video, “The Calling (feat. Laura Brehm)”, was released in 2016, and was monetized by TheFatRat until this copyright strike. Laura Brehm, who provided vocals for the track, praised top YouTube content creator PewDiePie on Twitter for bringing attention to the issue.
Thank you @pewdiepie for bringing awareness to the issues with @YouTube’s copyright protection system (he mentions “The Calling” at about 8 min in!!) @ThisIsTheFatRat https://t.co/AiP4yrdQSQ
YouTube – take notice! @youtubemusic @YTCreators

PewDiePie described the situation on his YouTube channel, and revealed several of his own experiences with the YouTube copyright system.
“This has happened to me as well,” said PewDiePie, “I literally just sang a song, Despacito, and lost all revenue on a video for doing that.”
PewDiePie and YouTube have made headlines over the last week, after Buzzfeed and a coalition of other media companies claimed the most popular YouTube creator used the platform to guide children to smaller, anti-Semitic YouTube channels, and shamed YouTube for allowing this to happen.
This led one high school teacher to warn students that merely sharing PewDiePie’s content could land them in legal trouble, and to Alex Jones issuing a command for all InfoWarriors to subscribe to PewDiePie on YouTube.
After Biden’s Coronation, Big Tech Targets Far-Left Groups with Censorship Campaign
These far-left idiots have lost their usefulness.
Violent far-left groups, formerly the darling of the Democrat Party when they needed to destabilize America to boot Trump from office, are getting targeted in Biden’s America.
Big Tech is undergoing a crackdown against radical left-wing groups that promote violence on social media. One revolutionary organization, the Socialist Workers Party of Britain (SWP), has reported that their accounts are being targeted by Facebook.
“The SWP Facebook page regularly posts in support of Palestine, Black Lives Matter and against Boris Johnson’s Covid policies. It also hosts dozens of online events every week that activists across the country take part in,” announced the SWP in a press release. The group is demanding their immediate reinstatement to the platform.
Additionally, Twitter has suspended several prominent accounts that are associated with the ANTIFA terrorist organization.
Journalist Andy Ngo reported that the Twitter accounts @JewishWorker, @RevAbolition, @RevAbolitionNYC, and @TheBaseBK have been removed from the platform. All of these organizations served as ANTIFA organizational fronts that facilitated left-wing extremism across the country.
Our comrades w The Base(@TheBasebk),an anarchist social center in Brooklyn, NY of 9 years now took this Twitter thing seriously.Reaching a platform of 17k followers they pushed a very specific line where politics were never blurred. Today,Twitter took their account down,and now.. pic.twitter.com/M9PWVUZKkn

President-imposed Joe Biden’s cronies in Silicon Valley are targeting ANTIFA and other left-wing radicals even though Biden actually repeated their propaganda verbatim before the election, as Big League Politics reported:
Former vice president and Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden repeated ANTIFA propaganda during his debate with President Donald Trump on Tuesday night.
Trump said “almost everything I see is from the left-wing” regarding domestic terrorist after biased Fox News moderator Chris Wallace pressed the president on supposed right-wing militia extremism.
“Somebody’s gotta do something about ANTIFA and the Left because this is not a right-wing problem,” Trump said to Biden.
“ANTIFA is an idea, not an organization,” Biden responded.
“You gotta be kidding!” Trump exclaimed.
“His FBI director said it,” Biden added.
“ANTIFA is a dangerous radical group and you ought to be careful with them. They’ll overthrow you,” Trump said before he was cut off by Wallace, who was desperate to protect Biden the entire night…
Big League Politics has reported on how the federal deep state has lied about ANTIFA and shielded them from consequences for years…
President Trump will keep America safe from ANTIFA while Biden does not even have the courage to name the threat.
The far left were useful idiots prior to the election, but they have lost their usefulness to the Democrats now that Biden has been installed in the White House. Sadly they will probably be back in four years to be used by the Democrats yet again.
