10 Tips For Choosing The Right Background Music For Your Marketing Video

Did you receive a YouTube copyright claim like this?

copyright claim youtube

Why you received the claim?

Since my music is copyrighted, YouTube’s digital fingerprinting system, Content ID, is merely informing you that your video contains third-party copyrighted content.

How the claim affects your video?

Even though you’ve got a claim, your video is still fully available and your channel is not being penalized for copyright infirngment. However, unless the claim is removed, YouTube will show ads in your video. These may include a typical Google ad block or a pre-roll video ad. If you don’t mind the ads in your video you can simply ignore the claim.

How to quickly remove the claim and the ads?

Simply send me the link to your video preferably with the order number to speed up the processing of your request. UPDATE: you can now simply reply to the order confirmation email to reach me.

As soon as I have the link, I will white-list your video in YouTube’s system and the ads will disappear within 24 hours. Normally, I can do that the same day I receive your email.

attention-redTip! Send me the link to your video BEFORE it’s published and I will whitelist your video to prevent the claim.

attention-redTip! If you purchased multiple Single-Use licenses or a Multi-Use license, I can whitelist your ENTIRE YouTube channel to prevent all future claims for my music.
