What does a Claim released from YouTube mean for my video and what can I do about it? A YouTube creator must be aware of the rights of copyright holders and should not allow them to use their videos without their permission. If the video was sourced from another source, the creator may have to dispute the claim. It may be difficult to contact the owner of the copyrights, so a simple search online will help.
If the video contains content that is not yours, you should contact the rights holder and ask them to remove it. A YouTube rights holder has a specific criteria for Content ID. Once the rightsholder has found evidence, they will release the claim. If you do not comply with the terms of the copyright notice, your video may be removed from YouTube and you will receive a copyright strike on your channel.
YouTube has also made some changes to the way they handle manual copyright claims. YouTube now requires content owners to state the exact location of the copied content in their videos. Before, this wasn’t necessary. This way, YouTube creators can verify the validity of a claim and edit the content out. The changes are meant to improve the experience for everyone. The first change is that YouTube has introduced a better mechanism to detect claims.
YouTube’s copyright detection is highly sophisticated, and employs proprietary software that scans content and notifies creators. A creator can choose whether to file a copyright claim, submit a copyright takedown notice, or make a manual claim. However, a copyright strike has several consequences, including the possibility of terminating a channel. If a creator fails to address a copyright claim within 90 days, they are ineligible for monetization or live streaming.
