Purpose and character of the use: The purpose and character is non-commercial, transformative use. No money is being earned or asked from the video, and the use of the music in the video qualifies as transformative because it adds new meaning and message to the song.

Nature of copyrighted work: Artistic (sound recording)

The amount and substantiality of the portion used: No more than necessary for the purpose used.

The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the original work: There is no negative effect on the value of the original work as my use does not substitute for or compete with the original. Moreover there is no negative effect on any licensing for the original song, as the major music labels have not provided any means to license music for use in YouTube videos.

This video shows how to use YouTube's new process for appealing reinstated Content ID copyright claims against your videos. YouTube established this new process in October 2012 after facing increasing criticism for allowing copyright claimants to unilaterally reinstate copyright claims effectively claim videos they had no rights in. The appeals process adds yet another hoop to jump through to get illegitimate copyright claims against your videos removed, but it is a step in the right direction. Since the process is fairly complicated, I created this tutorial to walk people through the process of appealing a Content ID claim based on fair use.
