YouTube's content ID system gone CRAZY

So in the continuing saga of copyright issues, I recently received the following message on a video of Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata on my other channel:
Copyrighted content was found in your video.
The claimant is allowing their content to be used in your YouTube video. However, ads might appear on it.
...which is obviously ridiculous. The work is in the public domain being 70 years after the composer's death and if you compare the two videos below, apart from being the same piece, the audio nowhere near matches (see if you can play them both simultaneously). The basic tempo is similar, but with rubato touches in different places, articulation variations as well as a completely different tone. Oh, and did I mention that my video was published over two years before the one I am supposed to have copied. Maybe I have a time machine.......





So dispute filed against the misidentification with YouTube - lets see if the automated system can learn from its mistakes.

  1. Let's not overlook how the first video has emotional depth and subtlety, while the second video sounds as if they were stomping around on their keyboard in work boots.
