      UPDATE (as taken from my twitter) Things are a bit muddy. - I do have written permission from the artist to use the claimed song. - However; the song uses a sample that has been picked up by Warners content ID bot. So I am being claimed for a sample, not the song. I'm still hoping we can resolve this. And take this as a lesson from me: Not only should you ensure you have complete rights to the music you are using for your videos, but also ensure that you ask about any samples that have been used. Otherwise you could end up in this situation (And you wouldn't want that). Will do a video on Tuesday explaining. I am taking a day off tomorrow!

      1. Silliest Moon :P

        Galaxy agreed

      2. uBiuui

        imagine bein that stingy that you set your bot to pickup on a sample

      3. Adam Laursen Zitz

        Mumbo Jumbo so sorry

      4. Tyler Roan

        U can do this

    2. loewoo

      Everyone who knows a hacker, call them and ask them to threaten CZ-news with crashing it if they don’t fix this as fast as they can!

    3. x Logicalz x

      U need to sue them dude

    4. Tonks Tech

      That's just really suckie =/ sue them?

    5. Christian Bataller

      make them continue building and restocking sahara so that they know what they are claiming

    6. MGTay WildYT

      If the system only got updated recently then why not only look through the videos that were created past the update date? I think this is what it is anyway???? I dk

    7. Frahd Chikun

      At first I thought something was up when I noticed completely unrelated videos in my recommended section when watching some videos (i.e. I could be watching stream highlights from a streamer meant for 18+ viewers, and the videos in the recommendation section could be Kid Toys videos from a bunch of foreign users who don't speak English, never touched those videos in my life), but now that I see that this copyright system has flaws, CZ-news and maybe even Google really need to fix this algorithm. It clearly isn't working at all. Only thing that it does help is finding a video from many years back that suddenly gets a large influx of views, which causes it to appear in my recommended section on the home page. Everything else needs to be looked at a bit more.

    8. the nope maestro

      CZ-news needs to nerf companies and buff youtubers

    9. singlehouse studios

      I want to kill youtube 😢😭😢😭😢😭😢

    10. IsminiStav

      You forgot to mention that they wait the whole 30 days and then deny it anyway and get all the revenue

    11. RagingPotato125

      The movie industry owns those black bars. The movie industry now owns your video.

    12. Exonerate Fate

      Yea, its called war. And they are weaponizing your ignorance to legal speak. Words defined in some english dictionary will be useless to you. Get yourself a law dictionary or visit a library. Peace be with you.

    13. Exonerate Fate

      File harassment charges

    14. Dixuś

      I have the same problem ;-;

    15. John Paul Recio

      Because of this copystrike on some of your videos your intro was gone

      Mumbo uses an iPhone ?!? Last time I checked he did a review for the Pixel 2

    19. Lunium 5

      Good looking man !?


      I found so many people get away with uploading a movie without copyright. So it’s not fair that my video gets taken down.

    24. Scott Jensen

      Don't these big companies make enough money already, this just shows how much these guys want money

    25. sodanor

      CZ-news is trash. They make millions but cant take care of their creators.

    26. Divergence

      A smaller company tried to claim one of my new reaction style videos. Even though it only has 200 views. A bs made up company and the owner is 343 Studios a big Microsoft studio. I think I got confidence I will win. >_< I think false ones like that are ludicrous.

    27. Naima

      I wish they would get a fine for making a faulty dispute so then they could get 400 fines

    28. Fin Fraser

      I have a video on my channel of a tribute show I was at claimed by the same arseholes and there is no copyright content in it. It is a live AC/DC tribute with no studio clips just the songs Bonny, Highway to Hell and For Those About to Rock. And yes those songs are copyrighted but Warner Chappel has no right over them. The record is under George Young and Harry Vanda not bloody dimwits at this company just saying "hey, that's music I think we own that"

    29. zak henderson

      Im glad i dont have enough subs to get claimed i think

    30. War Inc.

      There should be a penalty for anyone who wrongly claims someone else's stuff and against CZ-news for allowing it. Something needs to be done about CZ-news. They are starting to turn into a crappy website. Automated strikes, banning those whose views are different from theirs, demonetizing on ridiculous grounds and more asinine things. If I had to talent and money I would make a new website to contend with CZ-news. Google however, sees no problems with the way things are run.

    31. Graham Lang

      NO FAIR!!!!!!!!

    32. King Ross

      There is a guy at a desk somewhere handwriting all these copyright claim emails...I hope. Otherwise this fantasy is dead.

    33. DSI - Films

      Simple head: Song in video Song is able to be in video with licensed paper Song transformed differently but song is still in video Song can be in video, and is in video Step 1 of 1 complete We wish you the best of luck, plus your ads are great, I enjoy them, We admire, and love you and your content. CZ-news, fix yourself. Have a good day.

    34. Ben Jackson

      Sorry bit late, but this sucks. hope you get it sorted dude.

      How it works summed up on my knowledge: People can have 1 singular video similar to a small part of any video, allowing them to manually or over ai copyright claim a video (or if they are a dick they can strike it, but that makes them no free money) and a big company can literally turn a channel into a money slave for no reason, Even if you can prove that they are placing a claim on something they don't even own. Unless you call in CZ-news itself, trying to remove them me of these claims will send a request TO THE PEOPLE THAT PLACED THE CLAIM asking to have it removed, they are given 2 options, remove the claim or not.... is that even a question? The Defendant is also Judge AND Jury in a case. Unless you can find enough heart in a person soulless enough to be doing this anyways, your gonna need CZ-news which takes AN ENTIRE MONTH for this, and it's literally the most broken fucking garbage. Who says "Hey lets make it easier on ourselves dealing with copyright allowing companies to just instantly place a claim, then having a small quick AI check if it's related, putting it on hold, if they want it removed, they can just send it to the company, have them look over it, and review if they made a false claim. What could go wrong?" In conclusion, CZ-news headquarters are bitch ass motherfuckers who don't understand what taking advantage over a broken system is. So never use a song that has some degree of copyright for now, even if you have an agreement to use them, some false company that made a song similar can steal your entire life income for some quick pocket change, taking up to several months to fix. Edit: a potential fix to this could be to have the owner of the song confront what source material the claimer is using depending on if they ripped that song to rip everyone that has it for free money out of literally everyone because they are a fucking soulless piece of shit that has no sympathy or empathy towards others (sorry it's just way too many of the channels I follow are suffering from this oversight) Also in the progress CZ-news could maybe add a fee for proven false claims (by themselves to prevent people from in the request to remove the claim ask themselves if they want to pay money for having to steal money, or if anything have them select that option to help preventing this mess altogether and fix this fucking garbage.) Basically just sue this "company" in real life and not CZ-news I mean REAL FUCKING LIFE HERE. You literally can sue them, for actually even more than the amount they are stealing, also since it's mainly this specific company doing this confront CZ-news and have them destroy this company since they are ILLEGALLY abusing a copyright system to steal money and maybe even steal their life back in the process, along with many others who have suffered from them. And get CZ-news to fix this immediately it's been going on for over a year now so for the love of God, just fix it CZ-news for fuck sake. Man I went a bit over the top with this... I guess "article" Other Edit: Oh, also Disney copyright claimed someone's (I forgot) video for Bach music, after attempting to have them remove it they replied "We own Bach" This is illegal so fix this CZ-news And yes, I know I am repetitive, it's just so many things are wrong with this.

      Random Guy: let’s take a percentage of this guy’s money CZ-news: okay Mumbo: *releases copyright video* CZ-news: hey! let’s put this #12 on trending!!

    47. Kotonoha Loses Many Brain Cells

      Hello, as you might not know, I am from a different world than Minecraft. But I came here for the sake of Warner Chappell, and many others. They've claimed a lot.

    48. Foofer Bob

      So they have no standing to complain in the first place?

    49. Pineapple Whatever

      They also tried to claim Rusb 🅱️ by sheet music boss

    50. german199denuevo

      CZ-news is dead/broke since they don't need to manual verify if the claimed content is really of them. Luckly there are alternatives to this shit site.

    51. Edant

      in the meantime you should do what theoriginalace does which is copyright your own content

    52. teMmIE #0 better than #1

      Go home CZ-news, your drunk!

    53. HeyyItzTrish

      Haters will say it's copyright is broken

    54. Hannah Foster

      I know it's not that bad anymore but still it's like CZ-news stopped caring about it's people the very people that have helped them they hurt

    55. Hannah Foster

      There are literally fucking worse things on CZ-news but nah let's ruin this man's whole everything he's worked for

    56. 14104 x1

      I think youtube's redstone placement needs an overhaul

    57. Leandro Ebner

      CZ-news: *I'm going to end this man's hole career...*

    58. Gengar

      well, that makes my blood boil. it is literally red hot right now. and i feel like i am going to explode. "yeah bois he did nothing wrong but as YT is s**t we will strike this lad MumboJumbo and take 8% off his video revenue on 400 vids and he won't be able to do anything for 2 whole days, and we will get some of that sweet money"

    59. Warrainty

      lets get fs in the chat

    60. pilot tzn

      I know I'm not the first one to say this, but: Saying that system is biased has just earned my "understatement of the century" award. 400+ false claims --> no problem! 3 false rebuttals --> you're out, "liar!" How did no one at CZ-news notice the impending catastrophe?!?!? Copyright claims and rebuttals should follow the same policy. Three strikes out of potantially hundreds of thousands of videos seems a bit unforgiving as well, especially when you have to wait a month to even know if you did the first one correctly. A percentage rule would make MUCH more sense. Also, what ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? Where have we ever seen that before, besides virtually every democratic government ever? (begin sarcasm) Clearly such a widespread, long-established system must be broken. (end sarcasm) Seriously, CZ-news, investigate the copyright claims before threatening videos, because (begin sarcasm) every copyright claim is honest. (end sarcasm) Should I boycott CZ-news or stay to support wrongly-accused creators like Mumbo?

    61. Kisal Amarasinghe

      What the actual fuck 😪 i no longer play minceraft but i still love to watch his creative videos.


      Nobody: Susan Wojcicki: We're taking the YOU out of CZ-news!

    67. Philly_Jawn

      The irony of this is that you are a BIG channel. Now image the types of bullshit small (sub 1 mil) have to go through.


      Oh my God I shouldn't have watched this. I've seen your face. My life is ruined 😂🤣

    69. Someone Usually

      geez CZ-news just leave CZ-newsrs alone! Edit:innocent youtubers........

    70. Ryan Whiteside

    71. The semi - Nerd

      That's why there is no intros and outros on his videos.... I thought something went wrong with my device I hope the situation comes becomes better

    72. Mais Um Usuario do google

      Mumbo jumbo is without a mustache, this is very serious

    73. Pizzatc 0

      File a law suit and get a lawyer

    74. Gabe Sanderes

      I mean... you could make a re-make of your intro in note blocks. That would be cool, may not work though. Besides my joking, love your vids and hope that you sort it all out. I will do all that I can do to help!

    75. Humble3dore

      New CZ-news is fucked. We need the old CZ-news back

    76. TheNerdyIntrovert

      At one point, Warner Chappel Claimed that they were the owners of the happy birthday tune and were gaining money from it. They had no evidence that they owned the tune in court and now no longer have rights over it. Is jt worth your time to as for proof?

    77. Abdulla alshafar

      Mumbo, youtube might be low on money and they are trying to avoid that so they let these claims go through so they don't give money to any big content creators.

    78. Vaughns Gaming

      Why not just copyright claim your own videos you split the money

    79. SniperKing970

      This is like if Jake Paul fell off his roof, his laywers would sue their neighbor who was on vacation in Colorado

    80. SniperKing970

      Just copyright claim warner chapell.

    81. Dylan Tandy

      I am now copyrighting you because I sometimes play Minecraft and listen to music

    82. Nerd-Mask

      Yesterday a video of mine was taken down because it apparently had contents of Warner Chapell. It was a Stream where i played Fallout 76 with commentary. I imagine their bot or whatever recognized a song owned from warner chapell, when it played on the Pip-Boy-Radio in the game. So yeah ... it's frankly not my fault, because Bethesda included that (or these?) songs in that game, and they most likely own a licence for that. I don't know how's the situation with that but ... is that even legit? I mean that must mean, they are allowed to claim videos from everyone who uploads videos of that game where their music plays ingame randomly. That's just crazy. I mean WTF am i supposed to do to prevent another claim? I'm not allowed to play the ingame-radio or what? Wow what the fuck am i supposed to do then, if i ever plan, to upload GTA Gameplay? Do i have to be afraid, everytime i steal a car and a song plays in the radio? That Copyright situation is so f'd up man. I wanna punch a wall, if i just think about the new EU copyright-law that will be realized within the next two years. It will just get worse. We are entering a dark age for the web.

      Why did people dislike this ?

    84. Vincent Gonzalez

      mumbo, you need a hug and a tea

    85. frankrds

      yes it would be FUN what would happen if You sued them for false copyright claim.. maybe the courts would see the error... and then all of a sudden youtube would have to change its claims... its madness i say MADNESS ;)

      What is going up with CZ-news?

    89. RazorrBlade

      As a beginning creator, this is a good lesson for me. I never thought i need to check for samples in a song. I feel very bad for you Mumbo, and i don't think i could manage this situation, but i do need to say that youtube's copyright claim system is very much like shit... xD. Good luck with fixing this, and i hope you get everything right! Much love from the netherlands!

I just dont want you to suffer from this stupid thing anymore I hope you see this and it helps!

    94. Jack Of The Memes

      Out of all the problems with CZ-news, this one makes me the most angry.
