What does “Matched Third Party Content” mean?I have a video on youtube and I put a song on the video and once it finished uploading onto youtube it said that “Matched Third Party Content” and it turned off the music on the video.
I uploaded the same video with a different song on it to see what would happen and it said the same thing.
I have three videos uploaded, two of them my music was fine and I was able to use the music I chose, but my third video it says “Disabled Audio”. All I know is that my video has no music and the dumb “Audio Swap” thing sucks. I spent like an hour trying to find good music but it was confusing, so I gave up on that and now I don’t know what I can do to have music I want on the video.
I didn’t know that I was copyrighting anything. Gosh stop having a Hissy fit. I didn’t understand that I was doing that. I thought that since I was given the option to pick my own music, I could choose it. I didn’t know that I was committing a crime.

A lot of people can’t seem to comprehend the meaning of copyright. It basically means “What’s mine is mine, and what’s yours is yours”.If you have created a video which is “100% uniquely yours” (without having copied something from elsewhere), then believe it or not, the copyright is yours. However, if you’re using somebody else’s music and then uploading / distributing / retransmitting it, that is copyright infringement and against the law.As such, “EVERY SINGLE SONG IN THE WORLD” is copyrighted and belongs to either the composer, the artist, the record company,
and/or whoever owns its publishing rights.It’s “THEIR” music (even if you got it off iTunes), and they’ve got the  legal right to do whatever they want with “THEIR” music — including
1) not letting you use it or 2) getting payment for “distribution rights”, “licence fees”, “royalties” and/or the “expressed written permission” to use the song solely as per the terms of contract signed between your lawyer(s) and theirs. If you have not paid for any of those, then you’re technically “stealing” from them.

Have you ever heard the music of Linkin Park, Led Zeppelin, Prince or Red Hot Chilli Peppers used in a commercial or television show? If they will not allow companies like Nike, Honda, Coke or Apple (or shows like CSI or Grey’s Anatomy) to use their music for big bucks, they will definitely not let “amateur” YouTubers “defame” their songfor what often are cheesy low-quality videos.Yes, there are a lot of songs on YouTube, (perhaps even some you have uploaded), but everything ultimately depends on: A) the music label, B) the recording artist, C) what song is used, D) which songs YouTube/Google have in their databases of copyrighted music, and E) how determined the record label and/or artist is in defending and  protecting their copyright. Some don’t mind at all, while others have actually been paid-off by YouTube/Google so that people could use  those songs.

Laws on Free Magazine Distribution to Retailers?My partners and I are in the business of selling health supplements. Since our business is very new, we’d like to drive awareness by distributing free health digests to select retailers, for one. Now we are on a tight budget and can’t afford those third-party companies that specialize in magazine distributions. My question is: are there laws surrounding the distribution of a free magazine to retailers?

You’d have to check your local laws on solicitation. If you solicit at a place where you are not suppose to be, you will be charged with trespassing. It is advisable that you get the permission from the retailers before you distribute anything. You can also distribute to apartment complexes or private homes. You may not use the mail boxes because it is federal property.

The rules for starting a company in the UAE?

Starting up your own Business in the UAE

Whatever type of business you are setting up, you will need a license to do business in the United Arab Emirates. The three types of licenses are –

1. Commercial license (all kinds of trading)
2. Industrial license (manufacturing or industrial)
3. Professional license (professions, services and craftsmen)

Before starting to setup a company, you need to decide how the ownership of the company will be. The two types of business ownership in the UAE are discussed below.

Partnership Ownership
In this type of ownership, 51% of the company will be owned by a UAE national and the other 49% you may own, with the business being situated anywhere in the UAE. There are seven categories of business organisation that can be established, which are – general partnership company, partnership-en-commendam, joint venture company, public shareholding company, private shareholding company, limited liability company and share partnership company. General partnership companies are limited only to UAE nationals, while the establishment of partnership-en-commendam and share partnership companies are not presently encouraged.

Public and Private Shareholding Companies
By law, banking, insurance, and financial activities should be setup as public shareholding companies, but for foreign companies in this category can setup a presence by opening a branch or representative office.

Large projects or operations are suitable to be shareholding companies as the minimum capital requirement for a public shareholding company is Dhs. 10 million (US$ 2.725 million) and Dhs. 2 million (US$ 545 thousand) for a private shareholding company. This type of company must have a chairman and majority of the directors as UAE nationals and there is less flexibility of profit distribution than is permissible in the case of limited liability companies.

Joint Venture
A joint venture is a contract agreement between a UAE party and a foreign party for the engagement in a desired business. The local party in the joint venture must have at least 51% of the company, while the profit and loss distribution can be prescribed. There is no need to license the joint venture or publish the agreement. The foreign partner deals with third parties under the name of the local partner who (unless the agreement is publicised) bears all liability.

Limited Liability Companies (L.L.C.)
A limited liability company can be formed by a minimum of two and a maximum of 50 persons whose liability is limited to their shares in the company’s capital. Such companies are recognised as offering a suitable structure for organisations interested in developing a long term relationship in the local market. The required amount to setup a llc is currently Dhs. 300,000 (US$ 82,000). The foreign equity in the company may not exceed 49%, profit and loss distribution can be prescribed.

Sole Ownership
In order to start up a company that is solely owned by you, requires that you setup one at one of the free trade zones throughout the UAE. The majority of IT companies have setup their middle eastern branches in the Dubai Internet City (DIC), while many media related companies have setup their branches in the Dubai Media City (DMC). A list of the various free zones in the UAE can be found here. Alternatively, expats can have a company setup by a UAE national and sign legal documents at the courts that the actual ownership of the company is for them. This agreement normally involves paying the UAE national an agreed amount of money each month or year.
