When uploading your videos to Youtube, it’s important to know what Content ID is and how to manage it.
What is Content ID and why should I worry?
Content ID is a technology created by Youtube for, in this case, recognizing automatically the music on all the videos that are uploaded on its platform.
By doing this, they compare the songs and find out immediately when any of them is violating the copyright rules.
Without this kind of technology would be almost impossible to track the illegal use of digital artistic content on the Internet.
What happens then if I upload a video in which music I have no copyright?
Several things can happen.
In this case, a copyright notice will appear on your channel, alerting you about the incident. In the video manager tab you can also see a small phrase next to your video, as we show in the image below:
From here things get complicated, because the owner of the music may take some of these actions on their own:
Delete the complaint and not take any action in this regard.
Display statistics video views.
Monetizing video placing ads on it.
Mute the piece of audio that matches their music.
Block video completely and avoid viewing.
None of these scenarios benefits us too, as you can see.
None of these scenarios are of many benefits to us, as you can see.
However, if you have purchased the license for the song, for example through Envato Elements, you have every right to tell YouTube that you are authorized to use that music as you please.
How do I remove the warning message on Youtube?
Once logged into your Youtube account, simply click on the warning message in your video manager tab stating “Matched third party content“.
On the next page, it will appear all the information about the copyright claim and a blue button below that says “Contest“.
You have to click on it and in the next step check the box that says “I have a license or written permission from the content owner to use this material.”
Then you will be asked to explain the selection you have done, for which we recommend writing this:
I have purchased a license to use the song “Song Title” by “Name the author” from the website “Audiojungle.net” and I have the right to use the song on YouTube. I am pasting my license information below as proof:
* Paste license data here *
After writing this, It’s all ready!
In a period between 24 and 96 hours, your video should be clean.
HOW DO I PREVENT THIS AD FROM EVER APPEARING AGAIN?
The easiest way to get rid of the copyright notice is to always use music from libraries like Epidemic Sound.
This company offers a $15 monthly subscription through which you will have access to hundreds of thousands of songs and sound effects, with no download limit and you can cancel at any time.
In addition, you can monetize your videos without any problem, knowing that you will never again receive a notice from Youtube regarding the musical aspect of your videos.
Of course, if you have any questions or concerns about it, you can always write us an email to [email protected] and we will be happy to answer at any time.
