Eli in December

by Dave

December was a fun month for us. Probably the most exciting thing was Eli learning to walk. Here’s a look at what he’s been up to this month.

In creating this video I learned something interesting about YouTube; they apparently have audio detection software that compares the audio of an uploaded video to known items. I had several songs playing sequentially in the background of the video (the first three tracks from the same album). I received an email from YouTube saying the audio portion of my video had been disabled because it “may have content that is owned or licensed by WMG.” I swapped out the old audio for a different song.

I find it very interesting that YouTube would censor videos that way, especially considering their use of the word “may.” I wonder if they are required to do so, or if that is a service they sell to companies, such as WMG, to help them protect their copyrights.
