All of this copyright talk lately got me thinking about a project or campaign we could do to show support for sebi and those in danger of an account suspension like deach.
The project also had to send a message to the copyright nazis that we cover songs for no other reason than because we love music.
I wanted to do something with a rebel/pirate slant, but I don't want to get anyone into trouble. I also wanted a positive response - one with love and support in its foundation.
So with a little help from the Po-Hoes, I came up with "The No Copyright Claim Cover Campaign."
The campaign is simple.
- Cover an original song by another YouTuber.
- The YouTuber doesn't have to be a UU member, but that would be awesome if it was.
- Get permission from that YouTuber to cover his or her song.
- Give credit to the person you're covering.
- Provide a link to that person's channel.
- Post a link to your video in this thread.
- Extra points if you cover Warner Music Love Song or YouTubers Unite! by sebi, or any song by deach.
A great place to start looking for songs to cover is Grumpy Coyote's "Bring the Song Challenge." Here's a link to those playlists:
Bring the Song CD Challenge!
Bring the Song #2
If you have suggestions of channels with original songs, post them here. If you write a lot of original songs, post your channel here.
We have a lot of members who write great original songs.Take a look at:

I'm sure I'm missing some great original UU YouTube songwriters. If I missed someone you love, please post their channel in this thread!
Thanks for reading.
