i started promoting my music on youtube in either 2012 or 2013. back then i was using a $500 computer i'd picked up at fry's electronics and a copy of reason 7. that laptop started failing (thnk it's the fan) so somewhat recently i picked up a $330 dollar computer from best buy (got fantastic sales experiences with both laptop purchases) and a novation mini from amazon (which comes with abelton live lite as a free download). i didn't really start to seriously promote my work over on youtube until about 2015. sometime in or about 2018 the hassle from g+ and youtube got to be a bit much, leading me to delete my work. a little while afterward i went ahead and restarted from scratch. my experience with google prior to using g+ (now defunct) and youtube doesn't compare. gmail has worked well for me. google search has changed often, but still works well enough for my needs. i can't say the same about youtube.
these two still retain 51% of alphabet's voting stock. they are ultimately responsible for everything their company, and it's daughter company youtube, does. unfortunately youtube does not provide a level playing field for content providers. they, and the rest of the board members of both alphabet and youtube as well as anyone else involved with misrepresenting viewership numbers on their video streaming platform, are liable for their words and actions. i'm happy for their success in having founded google. however, i bumped into the legal consequences for their practice regarding viewership number adjustments while posting current events to attract an audience.
the penalties upon conviction for wire fraud are fairly severe.
so that's one or two counts?
pretty useful? i'll make the long story short. it's 5 years from the time you cease to be associated with or financially benefiting from any ongoing fraud not otherwise specified or 5 years from the time that most fraudulent acts end.
you not only haven't disassociated yourselves from booble financially, you're still in control of the boob-opolis.
just like i'd hoped to get a fair response from youtube, had hoped amuse would have been honest about my viewership and sales numbers. then again, maybe they are only as honest as the sites they submit to. i'll be submitting my tenth and final track for amuse to release before the end of 2021.
one day later, still no views credited. we saw that.
i generate more than that just building a list.
you know we saw that, right?
before you fail to admit to either keeping or not a second or multiple records of "views", a little light reading?
wouldn't a legitimate business have been in your interests from the start? i would have thought so too. however, here we are. funny how even a nsl never could have covered for fraud. at least with actual warrants there would have been chances for a court to put a stop to any funniness. little late to cry about it i guess.
