    Default The No Copyright Claim Cover Campaign

    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:

    That's a great idea! Do you think we could cover this guy too? He's pretty good.

    Fluke concert | Honu traditional tenor (TR-KRGT) | Kala KA-Watermelon | Lanikai spruce top 6 string (O-6) | Mainland mahogany concert-slotted headstock (CMM-CGH) | Stagg electric-gibson style (EUK L-SB)

    I love this idea! I need to figure out which song I want to learn first, now. There are so many good ones!

    This is an awesome idea, Seeso! I'm gonna get working on this.

    If anyone wants to cover any of my original songs, almost all of the chords are up on my website right here.

    A small suggestion.
    If you want to endear yourself to more people... stop referring to people that you don't agree with as "Nazis".
    I believe it hurts the credibility of your effort.
    Thanks for your consideration.

    Doesn't getting permission from the YouTuber to use his/her song kinda go against the spirit of the protest? I mean if we got permission from the copyright holder YouTube wouldn't have a leg to stand on. But then again I guess this is why you said "rebel/pirate slant without getting into trouble."

    I'm just sayin...

    I get what you're saying but I think it's main purpose is to really demonstrate that we cover music out of respect/admiration and not for any financial reasons.

    Euchre - The same thought ran through my mind.......

    I think it would be particularly effective as a protest if the song is covered without permission but with bold due credit to the writer ....and the song writer subsequently contacted the coverer and the rest of the world saying " thank you for appreciating my original work and covering it. I'm glad you got fun from it."........or something similar but more rebeliously incisive!!
