Frequently Asked Question
I have got a copyright claim on my YouTube video,
what do I do?
First, you need to figure out the reason why you got a copyright claim on your video. Make sure you have credited the artist correctly – we have explained how to correctly credit the artist in a question above.
If you have received a copyright claim from GOVINET Internet Hizmetleri A.S.-M on behalf of YourHit, then it’s because you haven’t given appropriate credit to the artist (mentioned the track title and artist name somewhere in the video description). This claim comes from us and our system which automatically reviews all videos looking for appropriate credit. If the system does not find any credit within your video description, then we will place a copyright claim on your video, and remember: we have all the necessary rights to claim your video if you haven’t given appropriate credit.
If you believe the system has made a mistake, or if you have added appropriate after receiving the copyright claim, then please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your YouTube video(s) and explain your situation. After this, the copyright claim will be removed from your video. It usually takes 1-3 days for the copyright claim to be removed, but it may take up to 7 days if there is high demand. Please do not dispute the copyright claim as this will make the process more complicated.
If the claimant is not GOVINET Internet Hizmetleri A.S.-M on behalf of YourHit (mentioned above), and if the copyrighted content does not match with the name of the music track you have used in your video, then it is most likely a fake copyright claim… We made a video explaining very well, what a fake copyright claim is and why it happens, and we do also explain step by step what to do in order to get the claim removed from your video.
