A user disputes a claim, because the matched segment actually comes from public domain footage. What happens when you select “Release and Exclude” on this disputed claim?

  • Performance data is excluded from YouTube Analytics reports.
  • The claim is released and an exclusion on the underlying reference file is created.
  • Underlying reference data is removed to prevent future claims.
  • A legal takedown notice is issued to the user who uploaded the content.

A partner hosts a YouTube talk show called “Cat Chat.” One episode consists of the host’s 10-minute interview with a veterinarian, followed by a 5-minute reel of viral cat videos that were uploaded to YouTube by other users. The partner obtained a commercial use license from the uploaders to use their cat videos on “Cat Chat.” The “Cat Chat” host now wishes to use Content ID to monetize clips from the show. The partner should…

  • Not upload the video as a reference file at all, because it contains third-party content.
  • Not upload the video as a reference file at all, because interview footage is not copyrightable.
  • Upload only the 10-minute interview as a reference file, because the partner does not own the viral videos exclusively.
  • Upload the entire episode as a reference file, because she has a license to use the viral cat videos.

What are the implications of selecting the claim option “block outside ownership”?

  • Your video will be made unavailable in countries where you don’t own the asset.
  • Your video will become Unlisted on your channel.
  • All user videos claimed against the asset will be made unavailable in areas where you don’t own the asset.
  • Other parties are unable to add ownership to your asset in territories that you don’t own it.

  • The partner must decide whether to release the claim or issue a legal takedown notice.
  • The partner can choose to reinstate the claim again to assert their rights.
  • The user automatically receives permission to use the video.
