Moderator on MYGNRForum Sheds Light on the Copyright Takedowns
A moderator on the MyGNRForum, Downzy locked a thread discussing Guns N’ Roses management’s response to the YouTube takedowns. Prior to locking the thread he offered some more background on the controversy saying the following
Okay, we’re going to put pause on this conversation for awhile. This thread has become pretty ugly and I think some time off is needed for everyone (including myself).
A couple of things…
People can believe what they want in the absence of any clear communication or statement by the band or management (Beta’s comments notwithstanding). We have made numerous overtures to band management that this issue requires clarification on their part and they have chose to remain quiet publicly (again, save for Beta’s comment that I would surmise was not fully informed at the time she made it).
They have mentioned a few things “off the record” and I feel obligated to respect that fact despite the total lack of respect shown of late to this forum, its staff, or the online community by management.
I can say unequivocally that the LLC used to take down videos last year (spring of 2018) was connected by GNR or GNR management and was co-opted by an individual who I won’t name here (but really, we all know who I’m talking about). When this was brought management’s attention, the LLC was immediately shut down.
Obviously this did not solve the problem as the rate of takedowns grew exponentially using various trade organizations like the RIAA and IFPI. And to provide a little context, when this was brought to management’s attention, one of the first questions we got back was “What is the IFPI?”
There are working theories on how all of this transpired. Personally I do not subscribe to the notion that the individual in question was given direction by management to take down the videos. But others, including those on our staff, hold different views.
