Dear Mr. Scott:

I've been using the MusOpen DVD to provide music for YouTube videos I've been making

Are you aware that SME on behalf of SONY music claims ownership of the MusOpen DVD? This is the notice I received from YouTube:

Hi WhatTheFont,

Due to a copyright claim, your YouTube video has been blocked in some countries. This means that your video is still up on YouTube, but people in some countries may not be able to watch it.

Video title: Birds Cages Intro Outro
Copyrighted song: Var. 13 a 2 Clav.
Claimed by: SME

Why this can happen

Your video might contain copyrighted content.
Copyright owners can choose to block YouTube videos that contain their content.

- The YouTube Team

I of course appealed, and just received this notice in response:


Hi WhatTheFont,

After reviewing your dispute, SME has decided that their copyright claim is still valid.

Video title: Birds Cages a to z Intro Outro
Copyrighted song: Var. 13 a 2 Clav.
Claimed by: SME

Why this can happen

The copyright owner might disagree with your dispute.
The reason you gave for disputing the claim may have been insufficient or invalid.

- The YouTube Team

Your dispute wasn't approved.

The claimant has reviewed their claim and confirmed it was valid.

You may be able to appeal this decision, but if the claimant disagrees with your appeal, you could end up with a strike on your account.
Viewing restrictions

Video blocked in 244 countries

Monetization

Monetized by claimant

In your opinion, is this accurate? Does SONY music own the copyright to the MusOpen DVD?

I'm stuck. Do you know of anyone who can help me to overcome this copyright claim by SME on behalf of SONY Music?

Hi. This isn't quite the forum for this, but I appreciate your efforts to reach me. Please e-mail me at jscott@archive.org and we'll see what we can do. And yes, this is a totally legitimate public domain work and Sony is overreaching here.

I am looking for earlier Computer Shopper magazines in the Archives. Anywhere I can look?

If you consider 1989-1991 as being the earlier dates I have a few paper copies. These are about 11" x 17" and weight a pound or so. They are not in too bad shape.
What year are you looking for?

Any dates you have. I am constructing a graph from 1979-2016 for the size CS grew to so I need any data points available. What I want is just the number of pages in each issue.
Each issue has the page numbers listed on the bottom corner plus the 5 or so pages to the last page. This way your numbers will match the page numbers Archive.org has for the 2000-2002 CS issues they have listed. Thanks.

The size of these issues is 10" X 13".

Is the data below the type of information you require?

Dec 1990 812 pages
March 1991 788
April 1990 742
October 1989 728

There are more but I will see if this is what you want.

Perhaps this could be done off line. Send me an email if you would like. And if possible I could use a letter to show my wife attesting to the fact that keeping these for 30 years was actually not a waste of space.

I really like looking at this old program. I noticed you only archived side 1
Will you be adding side 2??

I hope so.

Thank you for starting this program on the archive. I still have the floppy disks, but of course I dont have the software to even read them anymore:-(
