YouTube's "Content ID" System - Why did I get a notice & what does it mean?
Record Labels, Music Licensors and Copyright holders around the world use YouTube's Content ID System to identify and manage their content on YouTube.
How does it work?
Every video uploaded to YouTube is scanned against a database of files that have been submitted to YouTube by content owners. When Content ID identifies a match between your video and a file in this database, it sends a notification message that copyrighted content has been identified in your video.
While this message may sound worrisome, it's not. The software is simply making a match between a song in the database and your video.
Once YouTube's software identifies a "match", it is up to the owner or licensor of the music to determine what to do.
In the case of Triple Scoop Music, rest assured that if you have a valid license for any music matched to Triple Scoop Music by YouTube's Content ID system, we will never authorize advertising, takedown notices or any other action on your video.
If you do not have a valid license for the song you're using, it's easy to purchase a license anytime at http://TripleScoopMusic.com. All of our licenses include permission for social media, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Vimeo, Tumblr, Instagram and more.
If your video was claimed by Content ID:
If you have a license and receive a Content ID / copyright notice, the next step is to simply click the "dispute" button on the notification and reply that you have a license for use of the song. Disputes are typically resolved within a few days.
Once again, if you're using licensed music Triple Scoop Music will never authorize authorize advertising, takedown notices or any other action on your video.
Keep in mind that occasionally, the system may misidentify a song. If you believe the system has misidentified your video, please make sure to dispute the match.
If you run into difficulty, we're here to help! Email [email protected] with details on the notice as well as the name of the song you've licensed. Remember to also include a link to your video on YouTube.
