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 have 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 “Younited Media GmbH Music” or “GOVINET Internet Hizmetleri A.Ş. -M”, then it’s because you have NOT credited the artist correctly (read how to correctly credit the artist here). This claim comes from us and our system which automatically reviews all video descriptions looking for correct credit. If our system does not find the correct 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 credited the artist correctly.

If you believe our automatic system has made a mistake, or if you have added correct credit after receiving the copyright claim on your video, then please send an email to: copyright@freetousemusic.com 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 “Younited Media GmbH Music” or “GOVINET Internet Hizmetleri A.Ş. -M” (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.
