I demand that Rumblefish cease wrongfully collecting revenue from ads run against the content I own and make arraignments to pay the money they have wrongfully collected.
Rumblefish is notorious for making false claims of ownership taking ad revenue from the rightful owners the content. They even tried to claim copyright on bird songs.
Picking a Wild Salad and Bird Song CopyrightsRumblefish did the same thing to eeplox who was foraging to "make a quick wild salad consisting of sea beets, corn marigold greens, yellow mustard leaves, mallow leaves and flowers, dandelion greens, prickly lettuce, smooth sow thistles, sourgrass, wild water-cured olives and lemon juice (from a street tree)." and posted the following video.

Rumblefish made a false claim of ownership and and took advertising revenue from the rightful owner of the content.
He "wrote a brief article about a bad experience I had with Youtube's automated copyright violation system, and a company called "Rumblefish":" YouTube Identifies Birdsong As Copyrighted Music
I have identified the following advertisers whose ads are running against my content and paying Rumblefish.
US Celular Wireless
Take the brita challenge
City Colleges of Chicago
File For SSI Disability
Madonna + Smirnoff
I am calling for a boycott of these and other advertisers who allow their ads to be run against content that is claimed to be owned by Rumblefish.
By allowing their ads to be run by Rumblefish they are facilitating Rumblefish's continuing behavior of wrongfully collecting advertising revenue on content they do not own.
YouTube is also at fault for allowing Rumblefish access to its system to in order to commit these acts.
YouTube allows Rumblefish to immediately start collecting revenue before the user can refute the false ownership claim by Rumblefish.
Please help in the fight against companies like Rumblefish and boycott the above advertisers until such a time as they stop allowing Rumblefish to run their ads. Let these companies know that Rumblefish's behavior reflects badly their companies.
