YouTube rejects Terry Cavanagh's copyright appeal on VVVVVV

YouTube has rejected Terry Cavanagh's copyright appeal over a video of VVVVVV he posted on the service.

In December, VVVVVV developer Terry Cavanagh was hit with Content ID claims by YouTube on his own trailers.

The service issued the takedown as the music in the video infringed on copyrighted material.

Cavanagh appealed the claim with a dispute because it was his own copyrighted material, which he and many others found odd on Google's part.

However, earlier this week he received word back from YouTube that it had rejected it and reinstated the copyright claim.

Apparently, even though Cavanagh owns the rights to use the SoulEye music in VVVVVV, but Indmusic filed a copyright claim.

Both Indmusic and Tunecore seem to be the core reasons behind many of the indie takedown notices.

The whole mess was covered by VG247 last year.

Thanks, PCgamesN.
