    These “artists” need to shut the hell up and stop being so greedy. The DMCA is already far to restrictive. I make youtube content for a living (I do content marketing for a few big clients) and I am constantly having original material shut down as copyright infringement. I used to use Apple Garageband to make music for the videos and use their loops to speed up things. However, since big name artists also use Garage band and then copyright their material, Youtubes content ID thinks I am stealing their material and shuts me down, when I am just using the same loop that they did. Apple stipulates that the loops are free to use for commercial projects https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201808 This country is based upon “Innocent until Proven Guilty” Yet with the DMCA you are guilty, and have to go through all sorts of problems to prove you are innocent. It is a disgrace, It is unAmerican. These artists are just plain greedy
