Disputing Copyright Content ID Claims

Share
youtube_content_id posted on 29/08/2014

YouTube and Vimeo both use an automated Content ID system to identify and claim copyright on behalf of its clients to ensure their music is not exploited, used without permission or monetized by others. This system is fair for commercial music artists and musicians to ensure people do not use their music without authorisation… when it works.

The ongoing problem with the Content ID system is false copyright claims, multiple claimants and the treatment of those accused of copyright infringement.

Many YouTubers, or professional content creators who use YouTube and Vimeo as their main outlet use royalty free music, stock music or copyright free music as an alternative to using commercial music.

By using this music, licensed from a production music library like Beatsuite.com, they can pay a one-time licensee fee to use the music in their content without incurring additional royalties, fees or infringe on any copyright.

Another important advantage of using royalty free music, copyright free music etc, is the right to monetize content on YouTube.

Licensing royalty free music is not free. Content creators pay a license fee or “sync fee” to use the music in their project to avoid copyright infringement, and the right to monetize their content via the Google Ad Revenue scheme.

So when third party claimants make a claim on their video claiming copyright infringement, it’s understandably frustrating when all necessary measures have been taken to avoid such issues. When a video receives a copyright strike, it can be muted, taken offline, or left unchanged but all Ad Revenue goes to the copyright claimant and not the creator.

What is the process for disputing a Content ID Copyright Claim?

If you have licensed the music from a production music library, as royalty free music or copyright free music etc and paid a license fee/sync fee then any such claim should be invalid and we recommend you dispute the claim via the YouTube or Vimeo process. However, this can take a long time due to the number of claims and disputes filed and the resources available to pursue each claim. We do recommend filing a dispute and contacting the library you licensed the music from for assistance.

You can also dispute a claim directly with the claimant. Some organisations make it difficult to access their contact information or relevant departments and prefer to leave it up to the YouTube dispute process. However, if you’ve licensed the music and have the right to use it on YouTube without hindrance then you have the right to contact them directly and request the claim be lifted. Here are contact details for known Copyright Content ID Claimants:

Music for Kickstarter, IndieGoGo, Crowdfunder Projects

Music for Kickstarter Videos posted on 11/07/2014

Every Kickstarter project needs an opening video for those behind an idea to communicate their project to potential backers. It can be a simple talking head, proof of concept or a fully fledged campaign drive to show off just what the project is all about.

To accompany your Kickstarter video, you’ll need music. If you’re kicking off a new professional venture, the last thing you want is to run the risk of copyright infringement on commercial music. There’s a variety of ways to access music to use in your Kickstarter video.

Find free music online

There is music online available for free, but do you know where it came from and who owns the rights to this music? Unless you definitively know the supplier/source and clearance of the music your video could be flagged and removed at any time so it’s not worth the risk. Read more on why it’s a bad idea to source ‘free music’ here.

Use free music from the YouTube library

YouTube recently launched a limited, but free library of music to choose from for users to add music to their videos that won’t be flagged with copyright strikes. The condition of use is that adverts will be displayed alongside your content, and even before/during the video, which isn’t ideal if they’re potentially competitor products/services being promoted in front of your project.

What’s the best solution?

License Royalty Free Music

Beatsuite.com is a royalty free production music library specializing in copyright free music licensing for use in Kickstarter and IndieGoGo videos. Our Standard License permits the use of any music track in our library for a fixed fee that lasts in perpetuity.
