YOUTUBE Yq7KC46Ai8E Kraftwerk Computer World (2016) [Full Album]

Frank Rothkamm:

This I put out as ‘Kraftwerk’s Computer World’ with my main distributor Google, on YouTube and Play. To my never ending surprise the album was mostly ignored, except by Google’s automated copyright lawyers. Even though I clearly indicated on the album title and on each song title the Kraftwerk-ian source, only the first song I recorded, ‘Computer World’, was detected, so the album was reduced to one track, a Single, really. To my never ending surprise, the rest of the material was declared original Rothkamm as all lyrics and instrumental parts were supposedly augmented, mutated or varied enough to make up a new species of music. Thus is the wisdom of Google’s robot lawyers.
