(Possibly) Shady Artist on YouTube?

Post by Wrigglything » Sun Feb 05, 2023 10:18 pm

Lately I've been observing that this artist has been popping up on YouTube and claiming videos with music from Dragon Ball (be it vocals or instrumental pieces), but while it mentions Nippon Columbia, I'm not sure if it is legit or not. Though judging by the lack of credit and the artist name, I have a gut feeling it might not be. Below is the link to the channel:

But I'm not so sure on what you guys think. Is this real, and if not how we're they able to infiltrate YouTube music as the real thing even if they aren't?

Bogus copyright claims are all over youtube, sadly. As an owner of a gaming channel I know that all too well, you have no idea how many scammers try to pretend that they own the Tetris music, but there are dozens if not hundreds of cases, I had to take down some of my videos or at least mute some portions of them to be in the clear, I was just mentioning something similar on another forum a few hours ago.

Nineko pretty much explained everything
I've been witnessing this since 2021, but never talked about it before because I wasn't sure
Actually all of these uploads are a mess, specially the scores
No, only a few of the uploads mention Nippon Columbia, the majority of them mention multiple different names
The two most recurring are Fuji Sys and Anime Friends.
I tried my best to search any info about them, and everything I could find was a medical devices company and a brazilian event, no relation.
Maybe they actually bought the rights of all of these songs? It's important to note that they started to upload the Kikuchi scores months after his death.
But would Columbia really let them? These songs are really old, so I have no ideia...hmmm :eh:
