Youtube is garbage. I deleted the first upload and restarted the process to avoid being overwhelmed by copyright strikes. I did this because I was sure that I would win the appeal process, I just didn't want the channel to be suspended while I did it. The video was taken down, so I filled a counter-notification showing clearly that the material was in the public domain, linking to the librivox page and all, and not owned by "Audioliterature", that I had the right to publish it. They reviewed it and said, in essence:

"You do not own the neceessary rights to publish this content on Youtube. We're ignoring your counter-notification and not even sending it to the people claiming to own this audio. Oh, by the way, you can't appeal this decision. Enjoy the copyright strikes on your channel!"

At least four titles I recorded for LibriVox are being sold on audible.com, and audible doesn't care. It's about money. I have purchased these titles, given them a bad review with a note that the exact same title is available on LibriVox free.

Yea, give them money, that is sure to make them stop.

Their activity on Audible is somewhat unethical, but it is legal. That may be why Audible is allowing it, technicaly it isn't fraud. However, the system they use to sell on Audible and the system they use to defend "their" copyrights on Youtube is one and the same, the distributor sends the material to both audible and youtube's copyright bots. Is that not illegal? To claim the copyrights to something in the public domain?

At the end of my recording of "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" that is for sale on Audible, there is no copyright statement. They have edited the Librivox statements and disclaimers out. When we upload content to audible there are sections on the metadata sheet, and there is one for Content copyright holder, and on public domain works I leave that as public domain There is another for content copyright holder where I put myself. I do put a statement at the end of the audiobook "Production copyright year by audio books by Mike Vendetti" The pirated stuff on Audible does not have that statement.
