[YouTube] A copyright claim was created for content in ‘Youtube VideoName’

If you have a royalty-free music license purchased on our website that’s mean that you have the right to use this music in your commercial or non-commercial projects on youtube. But some of our music might be registered with Youtube Content ID.

Content ID is a popular digital fingerprinting system that content creators can use to easily identify and manage their copyrighted content on YouTube. Videos uploaded to YouTube are compared against audio and video files registered with Content ID by content owners, looking for any matches.

When video content is matched to Content ID registered content, a copyright notice will appear on the video, and the content owner may choose to take certain actions, such as:

– Clearing the claim and taking no further action
– Tracking the video’s viewership statistics
– Monetizing the video by running ads against it
– Muting the audio that matches their music
– Or even blocking a whole video from being viewed

CD baby, Tune core, adRev are YouTube Partner platforms that use the Content ID system to manage and administer this copyrighted content on behalf of content owners.

Many music composers, including some of those that sell licenses to their music via SoundPlusUA, have their content digitally fingerprinted via Content ID to help protect against unauthorized uses, and also use these YouTube Partner platforms to administer and manage their content.

How to clear a YouTube copyright notice

You can remove copyright notices in the following ways:

1. Disputing the claim via YouTube’s built-in form.
2. Or you can contact SoundPlusUA support via Contact SoundPlusUA Support

To clear a claim via YouTube, you simply need to let YouTube know that you have licensed the music and have the rights to use it. Simply choose to “dispute” the claim by clicking the “matched third party content” copyright notice next to the video in your Video Manager, or on your dedicated copyright notices page. After you click “file a dispute”, select the option “I have a license or written permission from the proper rights holder to use this material“.

In the “Reason for dispute” box, copy/paste the contents from your purchased license certificate (accessible in your email box or via the “Your Downloads” section in your Soundplusua account). You may also wish to include the statement “A license to use this royalty-free music by [Name of Author] was purchased from soundplusua.com”.

You can also contact us anytime, so we can help you to clean the claim from our site. – Contact SoundPlusUA Support
