I replied stating the music came from my apple software and I had the right to use it as it was public domain. The copywrite claim was dropped hours later.
great to hear that YouTube listened, but anyone else planning to fight for their rights should be sure to use the correct legal terms...
the loops are NOT "public domain," they ARE copyrighted, but you DO have a royalty free license from Apple Inc., to use these loops in any of your own projects:

. I am betting that as soon as I claimed they from Apple, anything I said afterwards did not matter much.
heh, may be true!
mostly it's good to hear of someone that got a positive response from the folks at YouTube, i don't recall anyone else posting back to tell us what the results of their challenge was.
best of luck with your project(s)
Thank you very much for your answer Keith,
and thanks to all the others animating this discussion.
Actually, because of many of my videos have already received YouTube's notification, I'm wondering if it's worth answering YouTube and defending my rights (loosing time, precious time) or let them as it they are, ready to stand up tomorrow if the music should be muted... well, common sense already answered me...
But, don't you think, guys, things like this should be handled by Apple itself, instead of by its users?
Best regards to everybody.
There may be a scam in operation here. It would appear that the so-called 3rd parties are including multiple Apple loops in in their 'music'. If this is registered in iTunes, these loops then become part of the YouTube Copyright filtering system. This means a loop used, even years ago, in a YouTube video can be subject to Copyright issues if the 3rd Party now registers its 'music' containing this particular loop. This 3rd Party now has, at the least, advertising on multiple video pages, or revenue from YouTube's monetization. The 3rd Party is, in effect, claiming ownership of the Apple loops, and possibly collecting revenue at the expense of Apple and YouTube users. This is just another scam which needs addressing by both Apple and YouTube. Its as simple as this, as Apple customers are we entitled to use Apple loops, even for commercial purposes, without having to pay a 3rd Party, or are we not?
As an addendum to my previous post this is an Email I've just received from YouTube regarding an uploaded video containing ONLY Apple loops:
"One or more music publishing rights collecting societies and CD Baby have reviewed your copyright dispute for your video, XXX,
For more information, please visit your Copyright Notice Page page

I think this says it all.
