Ok so I got a few messages on Facebook/Text that a Major artist used one of my beats, and I had no clue...So I had uploaded the tagged beat that they used on youtube for promotion about a month before the song was released...I had a download link for the beat to my website which there are terms for using the downloads such as beats are only for promotion use and not for commercial use in BOLD...the artist went ahead and made a music video and has ads running on it (YouTube), I've seen several videos where the song is being preformed at a show...the official music video has racked up near 3 million views in nearly 3 months. The beat isn't copyrighted with the U.S. Copyright Office but it is still my work that had terms to use. So could you say the artist "stole" my work? I've tried contacting the artist to solve some issues, I also tried to monetize my beat video on my youtube channel a few days ago and was denied because it "Matched Third Party Content" which pissed me off a bit...what can be done about all this ? Thanks in advance.
Artist's name nor my name will be released but artist is signed to Interscope Records.
