You must have a lot of patience.
Yeah, patience is kinda one of my things. :)

Hats off PZ! I’m the complete opposite in that respect, and would’ve probably given up after the second string!

Who tried to use this service, is not a scam??

Feel free to look at my earlier posts in this thread, and all is explained :)

Hi guys! Do you know, is this possible (allowed) to use Adrev system, if you exclusive AJ author?

There’s no reason why not, simply because you’re not distributing or selling your music / licenses using AdRev. All AdRev does is track music usages across YouTube, and the composer gets advertising revenue, rather than royalties.

Alumo, the link I posted was not ment to be sent out to clients. It’s a form for you, who are using the service, to submit links to videos which are to be excluded. If a client sends you a link to their video having a claim you can simply submit the link directly through their service without using the contact form.

Ahh I see, my apologies. No, I send the links directly to support. Means I get ‘face to face’ contact with them, and that way I know exactly what’s happening with the claims.

I’ve roughly done the same, often explaining the situation. Alumo, you never use the submit form at http://cid.adrev.net/submit-link? Perhaps I should e-mail them instead to be certain the removal is in process instead of using the form.

Right now when submitting a link through the form on the link above I do not get an answer, just a message on the page saying it’s been submitted for removal.

To be honest, I’ve not seen that link you posted before, and when I click it, it just takes me to the ContentID/AdRev login page. That’s probably only for registered member access and not for sending out to customers, so I’d stick to sending out the link I posted in my previous post.

Also, be careful in these early stages if you’re telling customers that you’re using AdRev to monitor your music. Some can misunderstand the situation and quickly assume you’re passing a problem over onto them, yet making lots of money at the same time. The approach is to let them know that sometimes YouTube match some content found in videos, and can easily be cleared with the details found in their license certificate, and guide them through. You don’t really have to go into any of the nitty gritty of things.

@GunPowderBob: Again, this varies, all depending on type of advertisement that runs on the video, how many embed views it’s had, etc. Also, it depends if the video owner clears the claim half way through it’s monetization. Figures in your AdRev dashboard vary wildly, because of these factors, so it’s impossible to give a set figure. That’s not how it works really.

It’s all about the culmination of views across all videos on YouTube featuring your music, rather than say one video that has 100,000 views featuring your music. I’ve got videos in on my stats that have had hundreds of thousands of views, but earned very little, because the videomaker cleared the claim with their license after a couple of weeks, for example.

So how do you guys that use AdRev handle emails from customers regarding third party claims from AdRev? Do you ask for a link to their video and submit it for removal or do you ask them to do it on their own via the contact form? I’ve noticed AdRev have an option to submit links to be excluded from claims. This must be the easiest way right?

It depends, and something I tend to play by ear depending on the customer. It always pays to take a quick look at their video(s) in question, and see who you’re dealing with first. Is it an individual with cat videos/bedroom makeup tutorials, independent filmmaker or a corporation/business, that really want advertisements removed as a matter of priority?

You’re correct that there is indeed a link that YouTube users may use in order to have their claims quickly resolved and has proved a successful option for individuals – on asking a few customers about their experience with it.

Sometimes however, you may find it easier to do it manually, especially if a customer has a whole bunch of videos with claims or if it’s a business. I’ll ask them to send over the links and I’ll send a quick email over to the AdRev support team asking them to remove the claims. Once that’s been done, support get back in touch, and I’ll advise the customer accordingly.

I did clarify it with TuneSat (see above) and it is 50 total. To give you some context, I specifically asked them if it was per month or in total.

Right I see that now, I just couldn’t/ didn’t want to believe it because of this:

So basicaly they just lie on their website?

Again, will be interesting to see what their response is on this. Not sure what the deal in the US is, but here in the UK, that would be classed as a strict liability offence, falling under the Trades and Descriptions Act, which is a pretty serious offence in marketing!

Looking at my stat predictions it’s looking to be yet another below average month for me. These last couple of days have been especially dire. Most likely search related, so having to practice a little patience here. Easier said than done!

Yes, a very nice deal. I’ve pinged them to confirm if we need to create a new account, and to clarify the 50 detections just so we are crystal clear. I’ll post the response once/if I hear back fro mthem.

Good job dude. Look forward to hearing what they have to say about it.

Hi guys, Why do you think we need to open a new account? When I check my pre-existing account, it states that I am on the free plan, instead of the trial version as it used to be called. So my guess is, our trial versions have been automatically upgraded to the free plan. Or did I miss something?

You might well be right there. I logged into my old account a minute ago, and sure enough it now says I’m on the ‘free plan’. Earlier, this wasn’t available. and I’m wondering if it was a caching issue from the last time I signed in.

Oh well, will be interesting to see what happens. I’ve got a whole new bunch of tracks to monitor in this new account anyway.
