they are making illegal copyright claims on the music in this game.  the creators need to nip this in the bud.


Where did you hear this? I haven't received any notification, but I'm happy to verify my licences or remove music if they object to the content.

i have a youtube channel and do let's plays.  i found your game and thought it would be cool to play and i was right.  it is a really good game with a great story line.  i did a video on it and not more than a couple of minutes of me putting it out orchard music put a copy right claim on the song Mr BigShot by Sophia Marie.  i new right away that this was BS.  so i alerted you and disputed the claim and let orchard music know that they were full of it.  i know you used original music and love it.  i also want to ask your permission to do further videos on this game.  it is an awesome and like i said i love the story line.  thank you for your time.  and if my video has caused any problems for you i apologize and will not do anymore if you so wish it.

I'm sorry they have caused trouble for you. The song is licensed it through Magnatune, so I suppose Orchard's auto-claim-bot can't tell that, so this happens. Or it is more likely that that license doesn't transfer to 3rd parties. You may want to turn the jukebox off for future videos, though.  I just don't want to get your account in trouble.

i will do that.  thank you so much.  it is a really good game.  thank you for allowing me to continue making videos for this game.  look forward to many more games from yall.  take care.


A quick Google search shows Orchard Music claims to be scams/false. If a YouTube video is getting pulled, I would suggest the uploader(s) dispute and they can contact me if necessary
