The Music of BSG might end before it's begun.

I had a horrible day yesterday all day and it only got worse. I finished up my blog entry about the "Colonial Anthem" and was going to set up the video for the "Main Title Theme from Battlestar Galactica" the 1978 version and it just got awful.

I uploaded the video I made which wasn't hard to make or upload. But once it got installed onto youtube I got this message. "Your video, Main Title Theme from Battlestar Galactica 1978, may have content that is owned or licensed by UMPG Publishing." It was just like a cyber kick to the nuts. I had planned on putting the videos I make from each song on my personal youtube channel but make them private as not to piss of the gods of the copyright. I don't want to get all this work up and linked up to the blog and come back months down the road and have all the stuff taken down. Been there and done that with the Galacticabbs youtube channel. That just sucked!

The weird thing is that the email from youtube also said this "No action is required on your part; however, if you are interested in learning how this affects your video, please visit the Content ID Matches section of your account for more information." What the frak did that mean no action is required on my part? I thought for sure they would want me to take it down. Anyways I deleted it from my account.
I wanted control over the content to make sure it wasn't going anywhere. I guess I will have to link to other people's youtube posting of the song or keep pushing my luck on my own channel. I had envisioned that this blog would be something like a weekly thing covering a particular song each week for well over a year as there is so much music to be covered.

Not sure what I'll do as I don't want to get in trouble with the youtube people or the owners or publishers of the songs as well. I thought I'd encourage some readers of this blog to actually buy the hard copy of the soundtrack or the iTunes version. We don't make money on this site and have no plans on doing so. This is for the fans of the show only. Think I'll work on some more screen caps to relax.

I'll work this out cause sometimes you just have to roll a hard six.

Can you use space on GBBS to post it straight to the site instead of through a third party site?
