I bring this up as I have recently received yet another Copyright claim on my YouTube Channel. This is like my 3rd or 4th now, and all have been cleared. The program they use to screen uploads said my Public Domain 2-3 minute clip of a Buster Keaton Movie used footage from what appears to an Italian movie? Not sure what a LORCA 2 is... but it is for sure not this...
I have had my voice before trigger copyright claims from Warner brothers in the past (disputed and got cleared)... I've had the phone ringing also get copyright claimed... I have had another video of mine also get flagged for copyright and like all the other cases... all were cleared when I disputed them.
I bring this up here as I am sure everyone has funny/strange stories of how their content has gotten copy right claims. Anyone got any interesting stories to share? I am pretty sure we all have gotten these before.
Fred wrote a version of Right Said Fred and sent me an MP3 of it, which I posted to my SoundCloud with his blessing.
But I received this:

That's got to be one of the biggest pains in the arses. Can someone just lay claim to your work willy-nilly with no repercussions for being decided against time after time?
Sadly yes it can be abused... and is abused... one of the biggest abusers is Greg aka Onion boy aka Onision. He's a creepy guy who swears he isn't pedo' but has documented history of taking "liberties" with age of consent laws in various states. Him and his trans (now) boyfriend Kai both have Youtube channels (Onision = 3 and Kai used to have 1 but she/he decided to go on hiatus after texts came out of her texting underage women).
There is a whole sub reddit devoted to his revolting actions and Onision has a VERY bad history of flagging anyone and everyone who does a Youtube video about him. He has filled dozens if not hundreds of copyright claims against people exposing his actions. He even took one Youtuber to court. What happens is he is able to claim that any and all portions of video he shot can be claimed as copyrighted and what happens is the video loses monetary rights and if your Youtube channel gets too many it can/will be shut down. He is one of the biggest abusers of the Youtube Copyright system.
So to answer your question, yes it does intentionally happen.
In the history of my copyright claims... pretty sure all were done by an automated system that Youtube and even Facebook use to detect copyright material. There is only one case where I suspect it was claimed by a company trying to shut me up because I was hosting cold calls they made to me, but I can't say for certain.
To be honest, I am surprised that scammers haven't tried to copyright claim the videos... but then again it would probably be against their best interest to admit to a international crime by claiming a YouTube video be taken down.
do they take down youtubechannels if a copyrighted song is heard and the monetizing rights just go to the copyright owner? I have a few videos on my channel where copyrighted songs can be heard, but I only got a message that the copyright owner can monetize my video (they have me blessing, my channel isn't monetized and I'm not going to) or I can mute the copyrighted part (which is no fun)

Often times the audio is muted, which is the most common form of resolution for copyrighted material. Many Youtubers fall victim of this... even ones who do Karaoke for a living and share their VODS to YouTube. You can also lose right to any moneys you could of made from that video. If I recall in a few cases of Onision he would get any money from monetized videos he would strike for however long till the appeal goes through. However your Record industry types aren't really worried about what money you would of gotten and don't try to take it and instead just have your video muted and you unable to make ANY money from that upload. NOTE: They only tend to mute the portion of the song but not the whole video...
You have to get so many copyright strikes in a certain time for your channel to get taken down. Then again that is rare as YouTube has a horrible history of their content creators getting away with murder (figuratively).
YouTube is a strange place... where you can be a creepy perv... pray on kids/women or be a scammer etc... and it takes years for your channel to be deleted... but god forbid you play some audio or video that is protected and they will go after you. Normally they tend to give the larger channels many more chances than they should because they help make them money... if your channel is a smaller one with only so many subs... well... then you are also treated worse.
