The battle between content creators and copyright holders is hardly a new one, but it seems to be picking up steam.
From a guitar perspective, one of the bright lights in these quarantine times has been the proliferation of famous artists, from Queen's Brian May to Kiss's Paul Stanley, showing how to play their own songs (not to mention groups of musicians getting together to jam on Rush and AC/DC tunes) on electric guitar.
But the YouTube guitar community has always loved demonstration and playthough videos, and an entire industry of content creators dedicated to producing educational clips on how to play various songs and styles has developed over the years.
Traditionally, content creators have argued that they're covered by Fair Use laws when it comes to using small pieces of copyrighted music.
But copyright holders don't always feel the same, and have targeted videos, and sometimes entire channels, for takedown.
