YouTube Copyright issuesStill A Flawed System!
No submission on YouTube is safe from being the subject of a false claim or mis-identification.

We sometimes use samples in our audio files which are also used by other composers and producers.
Many composers and producers register their video or music files with the fully automated YouTube’s Content ID system, and everyone else using the same samples in their audio or visual project are getting flagged.
The claimer is then asked to simply confirm their claim on the video. If they do so, they can proceed to have the content blocked or monetize it without any further recourse for the user.


If you use our audio files you should Dispute the claim:

1. Dispute
2. Choose “I have a license or written permission from the proper rights holder to use this material.”
3. In textbox, write “The audio files are licensed and approved by”
