Resolving YouTube Content ID Copyright Claims


First, don’t worry.

Your video is safe, and so is your monetization.


Why does this happen?

In an attempt to limit piracy, some artists on TuneReel may have registered their music on a Content ID system to monetize videos that use their music without consent. This allows us to offer you high-quality music from very talented musicians, though every now and then you may see a copyright claim (which is easily resolved) on one of your videos.

When you license a track on TuneReel you are granted the right to use the music in your video, but YouTube may not know that you properly licensed the music and serve you with a copyright claim.


What to do? (The fix)

Don’t worry. Don’t delete the video. This can be easily resolved.

Dispute the claim by following these guidelines: Dispute a Content ID Claim.

When you get to the box that asks you to explain your claim, write: “Licensed via TuneReel” and that should take care of it!


Am I in trouble?

No. Not at all. A Content ID Claim is NOT a Copyright Strike. Copyright Claims do not affect the status of your YouTube Channel in any way. and while the video is under dispute it can still get monetized, and funds held during that time will be released at the end of the dispute process.


What if YouTube doesn’t release the claim after my dispute?
