It's certainly an unfortunate situation. I've recorded a few classical pieces on my channel and the majority of them are stuck with a copyright claim and thus can't be monetized (which doesn't really bother me since I just upload for fun). What's really annoying is when the video is outright blocked from release and I have to write to tell them how I didn't copy from so-and-so's CD. One time I recorded a piece, had it blocked for matching one CD, then rerecorded it, and had that one blocked for matching another CD from a different artist, which I thought was funny.

You don't contest them? I do. I've always won as far as I know, but I've never tried to monetize my stuff.

The main problem here is that there's absolutely no penalty for improper (illegal) copyright claims. Anyone can issue a claim against anyone for anything and Youtube or Facebook or whoever will immediately take it down, so a lot of these outfits just do it on a wholesale basis and have absolutely no concern about accuracy at all.

If there was a penalty for improper claims things would become a whole lot more accurate in a really big hurry. But as it is there's zero incentive for these claimants to do anything at all other than keep flooding out these claims and to he(ck?) with the guy who's on the receiving end.

Valentina Lisitsa was once blocked for being Glenn Gould. 🙄

There's a whole industry around copyright and YouTube. In some circumstances, someone can get a percentage of your monetisation without having any legitimate right to do so.

That's too funny. I was blocked for being Rubinstein, which would have been cool if it wasn't so inconvenient.
