Time S.p.A. Armada Music attempts to claim copyright on simple beats. It is like claiming copyright on bird songs.

This is like claiming copyright on bird songs.

I spoke too soon when I said in my last post "So far no company has tried to claim ownership after reviewing the video."

Unknown to me at the time, Time S.p.A. Armada Music had secretly reinstated their false and now in my opinion criminally fraudulent copyright claim.

This is not merely a false positive of YouTubes content ID system. I disputed it. They have reviewed it and made a false claim to own copyright on simple beats.

Time S.p.A. Armada Music is claiming copyright on simple beats. These beats are made from sine waves. They are continuous and unchanging throughout the video. Claiming copyright on simple beats threatens every musician, rap artist, binaural beat creator and audio artist.

What next, will they claim copyright on 4/4 timing?

Are they going to make you pay a royalty for your baby's gurgling?

This is just as bad as claiming copyright on bird songs.

The video has the following steady beats:
Isochronic beat - 0.5Hz beat. 528Hz base.
Binaural beat - 0.5Hz beat. 136.1Hz base.
Binaural beat - 2.5Hz beat. 136.1Hz base.
Isochronic beat - 0.5Hz beat. 136.1Hz base.

Binaural beats are created with two sine waves of slightly different frequencies. This causes a beating sound to occur. Isochronic beats or pulses are made with a single sine wave that is pulsed at a particular frequency.

Perhaps they are trying to claim copyright on sine waves?

I am asking my viewers to email both YouTube and Time S.p.A. Armada Music

More importantly I am asking my viewers to get the word out. Please post about this in every appropriate forum you can find.

For those of you who are more technical. I took some shots of VLC playing the original video as it was uploaded. I used VLC's visualization - scope which appears to give a Fourier transform of the audio. The sine waves remain at constant frequencies.

  1. Just wanted you to know how much I enjoy listening to your creations. I feel sad to know that you are having to deal with fraudulent copyright claims. I think it must be very frustrating! Please keep up your healthy and healing work!

  2. Thank you for your support. The more people talk about this the more it will force them to back down and release their claim.


  3. So sorry you are having to deal with the fraudulent copyright claims. Your work is a benefit to all! I depend on your channel for my meditations as I incorporate your binaural beats and isochronic tones into my mediations. Thank you very, very much!


  4. I appreciate your support.


  5. Today is 4/10/13. Has this been resolved? What is the latest and I will email both youtube and spa armada music if necessary

    1. All copyright claims except one have been dropped. The following company reviewed and then rejected the dispute:

      "Pallavur Kanjukutta Marar;Party-Melam - Chenda (Pandi)", sound recording administered by:
      SME Dispute rejected, claim has been reinstated.

  6. I'm student of psychology and wondered if you had a directory of pdj journals explaining the biopsychological neurobiological basis of these phenomenon? I have found great success in using these techniques, however with my eyes closed in the darkness at every instance, this is the only way, the text provided in yellow and various other colors is only helpful as far as explaining the science audition, thereafter the maintaining open of the vision circuitry is only going to keep the language centres of the brain active, and you will then not be able to undergo neural reprogramming. Neural Reprogramming can only Happen in the dark, with your eyes closed, you'll begin to see colours much faster and direct energy and warmth to various organ and chakra reference points as practice and hours per day increase. I have over some short period of days, upped my sensory intake of binaural beats to 4-6 hours per day, in silent darkness, as Mckenna Suggested, set and setting. I would be very much interested in communication channels being opened with the perveyors of this excellent technology, Please keep on creating new maps.

    1. thank you for your comment. I do not have any psychology journals online at my site.
