CALL TO ACTION Audio and Video Monetization



Cordova, TN; May 18, in the year of our Lord 2020 -- Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is asking for your help. I know that in itself is a rare occurrence. We need your help. We need this story to go viral. We need ya’ll to help us with something extremely important. Please leave Youtube feedback that states: “Please separate the audio and the video monetization.” That is all we need all ya’ll to do in Family Friendly Gaming Universe. I will explain what is going on in the next paragraph. It is extremely important for fairness, and for Family Friendly Gaming to continue to improve and provide all ya’ll the highest level of coverage we possibly can.

For years we have asked Youtube to fix this problem. For years Youtube has done nothing. It is beyond frustrating at this point. We are not being paid for the advertisements on our most popular Youtube videos. We are not being paid at all. The audio copyright owner is given all the monetization. This is why we are asking for separation of the audio and video monetization. If we could receive a portion of the videos we worked hard on would be fair. All we are asking for is fairness. We are losing 300K a year on this. If we were given our half then I could do Youtube full time as my main job. I have gone round and round with Youtube and audio copyright owners. Both claim: “not me, the other one.”

Here is a video that is a great example of what I am talking about - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=noK3Yi6D6zA
In that video there is:
1. A webcam (super majority of the video screen) – my copyright.
2. Microphone with my audio – my copyright.
3. Art work on the screen with our logo – my copyright.
4. Just Dance 2019 screen – licensed to monetize and use.
5. The song – audio copyright owner (claimed by nine different companies)

Notice how 20% of that video tells the 80% what will happen with the video, and monetization money? The 80% of the video which we own or are licensed rights to has no rights, no ownership, and gets no money. Does that seem fair to you? We worked hard on that video. I had blood, sweat, and tears in that video. The audio copyright owner did no work on that video whatsoever and they get all of the money. Does that seem fair to you? I want to be completely clear here, I have no issue with an audio copyright owner receiving a portion of the ad revenue (aka monetization). I don’t mind if the split was 50-50 between us and the audio copyright owner. I am bothered by the 100-0 split right now that makes these greedy ultra wealthy audio copyright owners more money, and gives us nothing. We did the work on the video. We spent the money on making the video. The audio copyright owners are doing nothing and getting paid for it. While the people who did all the hard work are getting nothing. How can that be considered fair?

Please leave Youtube feedback that states: “Please separate the audio and the video monetization.”

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

God bless,
Paul Bury
