Frequently Asked Question
I have got a copyright claim on my YouTube video,
what do I do?
You’ll receive a copyright claim on your YouTube video if you use our music without including proper attribution to the artist in your video description. A copyright claim means you cannot monetize/earn any revenue from your YouTube video. A copyright claim does not affect your video or YouTube channel in a bad way. It simply means that all revenue generated from your YouTube video will go toward the artist.
If you have received a copyright claim from “Younited Media GmbH Music” or “GOVINET Internet Hizmetleri A.Ş. -M”, then it is because you have not provided proper attribution to the artist(s) in your video description (learn how to properly attribute the artists here). This copyright claim is generated by our system, which automatically reviews video descriptions for proper attribution. If our system does not find adequate attribution within your video description, we will place a copyright claim on your video. Please note that we have the necessary rights to copyright claim your video if the artist has not been attributed correctly.
If you have received a copyright claim on your video and have subsequently added proper attribution to your video description, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email, include a link to your YouTube video(s) and an explanation of your situation. Once received, we will remove the copyright claim from your video. Typically, the process takes 1-3 days, but during periods of high demand, it may take up to 7 days. Please do not dispute the copyright claim, as this will only prolong the process.
