AdRev - False Copyright Claims Standard Biz Practice

AdRev - False Copyright Claims Standard Biz Practice
Cannot wait until a Class Action lawsuit is filed against this company. They knowingly make false copyright infringement claims without doing required due diligence to determine if the entity they are filing the claim against has a legal license to use the music. In our case, we have purchased usage licenses from SmartSound who has contracts with the artists. These same artist also use AdRev to protect their music from unlicensed usage. But AdRev merely uses algorithms to identify this music and then automatically files a copyright claim WITHOUT basic due diligence to determine if there is a legal license of the usage. That is illegal. Get to work class action attorneys.

User's recommendation: Don't buy licenses from SmartSound as they do nothing to protect their customers from this practice. All the work is on you to clear the false copyright claim. Artists; you are opening yourself up to class action suit by using AdRev as you made a legal contract and were paid by SmartSound for the licensing of your music.
