Actually, I don't. It's my music under other peoples videos and youtube doesn't tell you what they are. Beautiful transparent system they have. But just listen for some crappy music and there's a good chance it's one of mine.
Keep hitting "refresh" all day long. I need enough to go down to the local 7-11 and buy a piece of bubble gum. Wait.....that might take a week of refreshing.

you know, you could probably sign up for a remote VM, host a simple php script that goes to links of your music and just plays it on that server. It'll show up as a unique non-you IP address, so youtube won't be able to say it was you watching your own video.
I'm not completely sure how that would affect streaming payments...other than making it a little more difficult to pay off the rate Court. After reading about how the labels have been in collusion with the streamers and discounting publishing payments in favor of master recording payments (10 times as much) I'm to the point that I don't think it will ever be profitable for anyone other than the ones that own the majority of the rights. I'm too lazy to go back and see if I posted it or not, but it looks like the streamers might actually be paying the $.006 out. But it's then split by the labels and publishers. I was unaware that master recording payments came from this pot. And the labels have negotiated reduced rates for publishing in favor of the ten times more they get for owning the master recordings. That's great for the majors that also own publishing wings - Sony, Universal, Warner, etc. it was purposely done to make more money for the things they will always own (the recordings) and pay out less for something they might not own (publishing.) So that .006 could be down to .00011 by the time the master recording cut is taken out. Just slimy as shit.

I don't see how the lawsuit would have much affect on the streaming side. More like, it'll take away the overall stranglehold these companies have. Maybe a copyright lawyer needs to unite with Nader to expand the scope of the suit... A nice scenario: while Nader hits 'em head-on, somebody else needs to T-bone 'em from a side street, while someone else rear-ends 'em... it's now or never maybe. Extreme organization is needed right now on this front!
