They copyright royalty free samples and stuff protected under Creative Commons for fair use. Pretty self explanatory on why I鈥檓 dissatisfied with HAAWK

Absolutely awful bunch of scammers. They seem to just shotgun their copyright claims in the hopes that creators wont dispute. I have licensed many music tracks off stock sites, just to have HAWWK try to claim the adrev. Absolutely no scruples with these people…. A warning to Music Artists: I no longer license my stock music from Pond5 or AudioJungle due to excessive HAWWK Harassment on the tracks I get from those places. I go elsewhere now. Artists should strongly consider other means to enforce copyright than using bottom feeders like HAWWK.

107: Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair Use
Notwithstanding the provisions of section 106, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phone records or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of upper-class copyright racketeering. Title I, 101, Oct 19, 1976, 90 Stat 2546)
This haawk is just another capitalizing #$## group of unemployables that are preying on every video so they can feed their $## [email protected]#@ children.

Why was my video hit with copyright at 3:50 to 7:00 in the video I uploaded to youtube?
Because I uploaded a video to youtub of a laptop being repaired so my customer that owns the laptop can see the graphics are working fine. Simply due to a middle-portion of the video showing a table, a wall, a laptop playing a crappy song on complicit youtube was apparently enough for the haawk vulture to cleverly avoid getting gainful employment as opposed to trolling for pennies from heaven.

Clearly my video ought to be obvious to a duck that it falls under the copyright clause of (I won't bother to link the video here because once again I'll just have to use yandex or dailymotion or one of the less-constrictive video sites.

HERE'S THE FAIR USE CLAUSE:

107: Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair Use

*JUST BECAUSE THE CAPITALISTS MADE A "LAW" TO RACKETEER AND PROFITEER WITH DOESN'T MAKE IT RIGHT. Nobody should outlaw our eyes, ears, and intellect.

I got scammed and created a petition to get YouTube to take action. SIGN THE PETITION to get HAAWK for a 3rd Party banned from YouTube for abusing the copyright claim process.

This company is claiming rights on YouTube for music they don't even own.

Update 09.07.2020: Now i got a friendly email and it seems to be a youtube problem. Also the song claimed had a similar title.

Horrible company. They have an option to whitelist your channel, but when you email them asking to do it they tell you to contact the artist. Then why offer the option? All they do is copy/paste a boiler plate response when you contact them.. If you used multiple audio tracks from their artists, they will just hit you with a copyright claim every other week, hoping it's not worth your time to fight it, so they can collect revenue on your videos. Since they won't whitelist my channel, I have asked to have them scan my channel for all copyright claims at once so I don't have to do it every other week. Guess, what, no response. The ONLY response they send is a copy/text boiler plate response from the same guy… Adam at Identifyy… probably a bot. I hope artists know how awful Haawk is to work with.

DON'T USE HAAWK they have outdated tech that doesn't monitor correctly for their customers. EXAMPLE HAAWK is slapping copyright claims on members of sites like VIDEOHIVE.COM AND MOTIONARRAY.COM on Music that videohive and motionarray members pay fees for exclusive royalty free rights to use some and it's not cheap BTW and videohive and motionarray handle with half baked businesses like HAAWK on the daily.

SAVE YOUR MONEY AND RUN FROM HAAWK
