    Fran: Try to get hand on one of these incredibly sensitive all-tube shortwave receivers COLLINS R-390A (just visit the net and correponding SW groups) and let its user tell what these 80 lbs monsters are capable of.

    You will be amazed. You will hear stations that modern equipment cannot reach at all !

    I must have missed something. These films themselves were copyright when made, visual and music and text all, and surely that still applies?
    The same way published books are still under copyright back to nearly WW1?

    YouTube has gone down the same rabbit hole as rock music, professional sports and anything else that smells like money. When it changes from just doing or making something for joy to doing or making something for money it all gets stupid complicated.

    I recently watched a video by Pewdiepie where he basically said that YouTube's content ID is broken and gave examples showing that his own music in some of his videos was copyright claimed by some organization that claimed it on behalf of Pewdiepie. Pewdiepie said that he never wanted his music claimed by anyone including himself because he wanted others to use it. When he tried to appeal it, the copyright troll denied his appeal.

    If the problem is just that the trolls are stealing your monetization, can you set a Patreon funding target where you just stop caring about the youtube money for these, and leave the videos unedited (and mirrored to the Internet Archive)? So long as you're just getting ContentID claims and not actual strikes, maybe it'd be better to lean on patron support harder and just let this fight go, in the interest of saving these for posterity.

    Or at least once the initial revenue spike decreases from an edited upload, send the unedited version to IA.

    Fran, too bad you can't make fair use, even though it is copyrighted. You had the original film so you ought to be able to upload. But we know lawyers are blood sucking ticks that will sucks away any good you tried to do. Merry Christmas and may the FORCE be with you and have a magical day! MagicBill

    To share history, the information thru these videos is a remarkable kindness and effort. Much strength and healing to you, beyond a full plate of burdens shines a light
    of inspiration and pride in our country, it's makers and their achievements. Thank you, I hope you are able to find some peace this season. (and maybe one day you'll wake all things will be moved, in order, and unbroken) Prayers Take Care

    Hi Fran, I lost my sense of smell with Covid and my advice is do not despair, it can take a couple of weeks to come back, a couple of months or 6 months to a year. I'm 6 months in and it is basically back as it was before, just been a gradual improvement with several noticeable step changes and those are lovely days, you appreciate something a lot more after it's been gone a while. One thing they say helps speed things up is Vitamin A nasal drops so might be worth a Google to investigate that. Good luck with the move.

    Holy shit! YouTube Copyright is broken beyond repair. I‘m on the board of an independent label and I will suggest to pull our catalog from content ID asap. That’s just fucked up. Not worth the few bucks we earn from ContentID.

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Titian Topsy says:

    It's such a shame. These films are historic records and how are we ever going to see them if people copyright strike them? You're doing an amazing thing by sharing these films for everyone to see. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that all your troubles will be sorted out asap. X

    That is REALLY too too bad about the COPYRIGHT TROLLS. Isn't there a different platform that doesn't Police content like the Gestapo?? I'm a Patreon Fran, and I would gladly follow you there!!

    So, it all comes down to…
    ….the lunatics are running the asylum….
    (I mean the system as it has become, not this or other channels)
    I hear other channel users complaining as well. "I can't talk about this, or I'll be shut down…oh we can't show that"..

    That's a Commodore 1702 monitor above the top of your head that was solid enough for commercial use, and we used it in the 80's at WBZ-TV Boston when I was an intern there. It was the preview monitor for the chyron (character generator). Very well engineered.
