Yes, .... well sort of. Not all countries. (I'm proud to say I've been banned in some! :-) Not sure which ones or exactly why....
The record company wonks finally figured out it was free advertizing for them!
Since they developed the SW to sniff out even short clips of "tunes", YT puts the artist and the song with a link to Amazon to purchase the MP3 file.
One of my early banned videos that I was forced to change to "elevator music", or remove the video, now posts a link to the Amazon for the song they forced me to remove..... yet it still has the "elevator music" go figure....
: Can we legally add "tunes" to YouTube videos of kayak
