White noise video copyright - who woulda thought?

The BBC had a Technology news report titled "White noise video on YouTube hit by five copyright claims" dated January 5, 2018.

Five, er, FIVE! copyright claims? How can this happen? One would think that making a VIDEO of white noise would be unique, sorta like making a video of waves at the beach or snow falling, or in six months, people walking along the boardwalk in shorts and a T-shirt.

However, a Very interesting approach to what can be copyrighted and another interesting approach on how the offender can keep his video up by paying the copyright owner a percentage of the income.

Content ID is a great invention but it does not always work.

I frequently get a Content ID match on piano music from the wrong performer, sometimes even disputes get rejected and I have to go to the next level.
