Crankin' It Up: Brat Takes A Break As We Recycle One For You

My Handy Man was recorded by Ethel Waters in 1928, and we have featured it here before through YouTube.  YT gave me grief about it, and tonight we put it back up on DailyMotion.  I hope it doesn't cause any trouble for us over there.

Well, that sure was racy - for the day. I've seen much worse on you tube, so I wonder what their problem was?

It's all about copyright issues. Once they put a copyright notice on a video, they sell ads to folks who are selling copies of the songs. That's OK with me, but if they decide it's an egregious violation, they will hit you with a Copyright Strike, which can end your YouTube account. Because of that, any that have been "Copyright Noticed", I take down to safeguard my account. DailyMotion sells ads, too, but if they have a problem with a vid they just take it down. I don't know why YouTube doesn't do likewise.
