Video: Who is Merlin CDLTD?

The wizard of Content ID?

Merlin LogoEven as YouTube promises to start doing better with its copyright systems, the controversies over bad monetization claims continues.

More recently a great deal of the anger has been directed to a largely unknown claimant who has been making a variety of quesitonable (and sometimes clearly false) monetization or other copyright claims on videos.

That organization, Merlin CDLTD, has inspired equal parts anger and confusion.

So who is Merlin and what’s going on? I made a short video to explain some of the basics of the organization and what may be going on. Though I can’t and don’t know all of the information, I may be able to provide a few answers that can help out some.

For more information, check out Merlin’s website.
