Fuck Unison Audio

YouTuber Ave Mcree, better known as Traptendo, did a video calling out Unison Audio on their overpriced nonsense. Rather than accepting this criticism, the folks at Unison Audio had YouTube pull it by doing a fraudulent copyright claim against the video. That is a terrifying precedent, and I hope it fucking ruins them.

Video Description:

A video about Unison Audio copyright striking my "Unison Audio Chord MIDI Pack Scam" video! This is a channel strike which is affects my monetization rights and could get my channel deleted. I don't care if that happens because I'm not going to stand for people hustling you. It's sad that YouTube allows shills and dishonest companies to strike honest reviewers. It's censorship at it finest! YouTube as a company has lost all of it's charm when it stop caring about the community on here. Do I like doing videos like these? No, but it's necessary when people are using their influence for the wrong things. I'm not knocking their hustle by NO MEANS, but offer a product that is 100% YOURS!!!!!

From the Q&A on their website:
Q: Are the MIDI files in the Unison MIDI Chord Pack royalty free?
Yes, all the MIDI files in the Unison MIDI Chord Pack are 100% royalty free and cleared for commercial use. You can use them in your music however you want.

That wasn't the objection. These are just MIDI files with chords in them... I would hope you would be able to use them in your music.
I didn't watch the whole vid. What was Unison Audio claiming copyright on?
I’m not surprised. I’ve been seeing a lot of YouTube ads for this, so I decided to research it a bit. Nothing but bad reviews. Most notably, bad reviews about the customer service, or complete lack thereof.
They are just selling chords. There is no copyright on chords. It is all very common knowledge. A very sad product. Better to encourage people to know how to make chords themselves. Random picking of chords won’t garner imspration. But it will distract from learning how to develop one’s ear and gaining a harmonic vocabulary and understanding. It’s a rip off on many levels.
One of the chords in the pack was missing. Demanded a refund.
YouTube makes it too easy to abuse their copyright claim system... because they don’t want to pay humans to moderate the system. Companies know this and use it for retaliation all the time. It’s well known and well documented. It’s a shithole of a system and YouTube has zero incentive to change it. If you make your income via YouTube, you ought to find another path to income. You have no rights with YouTube and never will (then again, nothing stopped two of my prior employers from violating my legally protected rights either...).
