App Music Copyright Issues - Why is this Still Not Dealt With?

[ New ]

Hey I am getting devestated by spending time making videos with GoPro and the Quick App and then having copyright issues with both facebook and Youtube due to the music!

Please REMOVE copyrighted music from your library, it is not fair to your users who spend so much time capturing amaing content and making movies with your apps and software if that will result in them suffering from copyright issues, the onus should not be on the user, or the artist or licenses or youtube and facebook etc etc ,It must lay with the apps and software to ensure there will NOT be any issues by purchaing the FULL commercial rights not just temporary licenses (FULL COMMERCIAL RIGHTS) !,  its arbtrary to argue anything about it ... we would be better off with a TINY LIBRARY that wont get us into any problems than to have a LARGE LIBRARY of songs that are going to cause problems. 

 please just dont add ANY copyrighted music to your library and the issue wont exist for us. You guys need to take resoponsibilty and ownership of your apps and ensure they are worth your users time and creative energy and either purchase the complete commercial rights to each track or make/contract your own unique music and then the problem will no loner exist..

 

if you dont have the complete rights to every track you provie then simply DO NOT ADD IT TO THE APPS LIBRARY..   simple 

 

There is nothing worse than working on a video , trusting the app for a good music choice and then it's a huge waste of time and creative energy due to silly copyright problems that your team are not illiminating for your users..  grrrr  

 

I see posts going back to 2017 and yet your still providing tracks in your apps with the same problems.  ,make your own... buy or contract the music you provide ... easy....

Thank you for the feedback, @stoutwave51781. We pay copyrights so that our users can have those songs in their personal videos; however, be aware that if you share the video on social networks, it may not be that simple since Facebook / YouTube / Instagram doesn't support individual licenses.

that doesnt really help,  the problem is the app is useless if the music is triggering copyright issues in youtube isint it,..

all you guys have to do is upload the tracks to youtube and see what happens.. if it gets a copyright notification take it out of the app until you can resolve it..  

why do you include problematic tracks in the app?
