India based Media platform files false copyright claim

It goes to say that there are many predatorial media platforms. Distorting or outright fabricating truths is not an uncommon element. However, you would never expect one of these platforms to target an aspiring musician, simply trying to share their musical compositions. However, that is exactly what Manorama News TV, a platform based in India, did.

The copyright claim filed by the media giant. In the claim, they are simply attempting to get monetization for music that they do not own.

To preserve the reputation of the artist, he requested that we only refer to him as “Dark,” which we are more than happy to comply with. In 2017, “Dark” released one of his musical pieces, a song called “Raven.” The piece, as he tells us, was composed solely by him. He informed us that the YouTube release had “Royalty free” videos with it. Royalty free means that the video is accessible to the general public, free of charge, to use in a variety of ways.

For years, the young musician had no problems. That changed recently when he saw a copyright claim on the music. He sent our platform the original music file, confirming that it was in fact his piece. The questionable aspect of the claim comes in what they did within the claim. They didn’t request the music to be removed. Instead, they claimed to have it monetized, to which they would be paid for the views. If this sounds like a money scheme to you, we are inclined to agree.

When reaching out to the platform, we were surprised to see that they have over three million followers. So why would they waste their time on a small-time musician? We asked the platform this very question. Rather than replying, they blocked any member of our team who tried to make contact.¬† With that, we contacted them under the “War on Corruption” page. Though we haven’t been blocked as of yet, there is no expectation that they will respond in any form aside blocking the platform.

Shady journalism is something our platform has always strongly disagreed with. For a platform like “Manorama News TV” to falsely claim ownership of material they clearly do not own, is simply appalling. I can imagine that it’s not an easy feat being a musician. I also can imagine that it’s infuriating for something you’ve spent a lot of time on to be stolen in this fashion. This situation not only reveals Manorama News as a crooked platform, it also demonstrates the flaws within YouTube’s copyright system. It seems that anybody can file a claim on any video they so desire. Following¬† the claim, they can simply profit from the work of others. These parasites aren’t required to prove the claim, only file it.

Mackenzie Branham: police cover-up?

Donald Branham is your typical father; a man who would sacrifice anything for his children. The concept of losing a child is one that could only exist within nightmares. Unfortunantly for Donald, this nightmare has now become a cold harsh reality.

In 2006 Mackenzie was an articulated little girl. 8 years of age, parents divorced, she would often split her time between mother and father. On April 27th, 2006 Mackenzie had been staying with her mother. It would later be discovered, during post-mortem testing, that she had been previously raped, more on that later.

In the early morning hours, a sudden, amd mysterious fire, took place. Mackenzie’s mother Maryanne, her boyfriend Kenny, and suspiciously enough the dog, managed to escape unharmed. While they stood outside the blazing inferno, in the second floor bedroom a little girl would perish.

The house where Mackenzie sadly lost her life. Her room was located on the second floor.

Protocol, under normal circumstances, state that a fire containing a death are to be treated as a homicide until otherwise proven. However, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department failed to uphold this. In fact, it appears that they have willfully sabotaged the entire case. It makes a person wonder why. We began asking questions about the boyfriend, keeping in mind the claim of rape.

As it turns out, Kenny had family within the department, one being a sargeant. Initially, Mackenzie’s death was ruled “accidental.” It was then upgraded to “suspicious,” and finally “homocide.” We know, from our investigation, the police destroyed the investigation. Early on, Mackenzie tested positive for semen, this is conclusive of rape. Being that she was in the home with her mother, and her boyfriend, that narrows the list of suspects, though this remains inconclusive.

Within the first month of Mackenzie’s death, the Fayatte county sheriff’s department had already began destroying the evidence. The destroyed evidence wasn’t minor things, either. Clothing, 9-1-1 calls, etc. seemingly began to vanish. All evidence that could identify the rapist, and potential murderer, destroyed. While we aren’t big into conspiracy theories, this is extremely suspicious for a department to do…especially so early into an open investigation.

What we are providing, within this article, is just a brief description into this case; we haven’t even discussed the deeper aspects of what has happened, this will have to be done in a future article. Mackenzie was a young lady who did not deserve the cruel fate that was bestowed upon her. She did not deserve the confirmed rape nor being burned alive. For her father, Donald, his love for his kids, as well as Mackenzie’s memory, drive him toward seeking the truth: why was she killed?

You can look at the evidence for yourself, there is simply to much for us to share here. To do that, you can join his Facebook group here.
