Content ID

Last update: 07.07.2020

YouTube Content ID - is the system, which helps protect copyright. How does it work? Videos are uploaded to YouTube are scanned against a database of files that have been submitted to YouTube by content owners.

Do you create 100% original content? Just let us know and we will put your videos into the system and monetise illegal reuploads in your favor. 

How can you act if your video is reuploaded? 

1. Block a video (worldwide or just in certain countries). 

2. Monetise a video in your favor.  

Videos that are not eligible for Contend ID:

  1. Gameplays
  2. Top videos ( eg.: 'Most paid Hollywood actors of all time')
  3. Videos with Creative Commons license or any other open license
  4. Audio and video materials of public domain 
  5. Videos with copyrighted music
  6. Videos with copyrighted video materials 
  7. Karaoke records, compilations, remixes
  8. Sound effect, background sounds, looped records
  9. Compilations (even if you own exclusive rights for every piece of the compilation, you will need to split the video into separate objects)
  10. Long DJ mixes (even if you own exclusive rights for every piece of the mix, you will need to split it into separate objects)
  11. Mashups (even if you own exclusive rights for every piece of the mashup, you will need to split it into separate objects)
  12. Charts and playlists (even if you own exclusive rights for every piece of the video, you will need to split it into separate objects)
  13. Videos that include entire music albums (even if you own exclusive rights for every piece of the video, you will need to split it into separate objects)

Why should you comply with copyright?
