So this was a first for me. I’ve published more than a few live performances of covers on YouTube over the years without this treatment. I noticed a third party content status on my recent post of Nickel Plated Angel covering My Maria, a recently covered country music hit which was originally written and released back in the early 70’s.
I disputed it and have no idea what will happen, but I’m interested to see the result. I let YouTube fix the “shakiness” in my video, so I guess they can cover any legal costs, right Can a band covering a song even be the target of the record labels?
