What is a copyright claim on your channel?

Allow Aumirah to help you out.

In the present dynamic online market, keeping an eye on the web of copyright laws can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to platforms like YouTube.

As a channel owner, understanding copyright claims is crucial to safeguarding your creative endeavors on YouTube. Here at Aumirah, we specialize in intellectual property law and are committed to assisting creators like you in protecting your rights and resolving any copyright disputes that may arise.

Let’s First Understand What a copyright claim is.

A copyright claim includes two distinct mechanisms:

  • Copyright removal requests
  • Content ID claims.

These mechanisms serve as avenues for copyright holders to assert their ownership over content uploaded to YouTube.

Difference Between Removal Requests & Content ID Claims

A copyright removal request, also known as a “takedown notice,” is a legal demand for the removal of content from YouTube due to alleged copyright infringement. Meanwhile, Content ID is a proprietary tool utilized by copyright owners to scan YouTube for instances of their copyrighted material automatically. When Content ID gets a match, it initiates a Content ID claim, enabling copyright owners to take various actions based on their preferences.

Copyright Removal Requests

When a copyright removal request is submitted, YouTube is obligated to process it by legal requirements. If your content is removed due to such a request, your channel may get a copyright strike. However, there are avenues available to resolve copyright strikes and mitigate their impact on your channel. Aumirah’s experts can help you with this.

Content ID Claims

Content ID claims, which are different from removal requests, are administered through YouTube’s proprietary tool. Depending on the copyright owner’s settings, content subject to a Content ID claim may be blocked, monetized through advertisements, or tracked for viewership statistics. Significantly, the actions taken as a result of Content ID claims may vary based on geographical regions.
