YouTube Music Licensing

YouTube-logo-full_colorFollowing up on our earlier post about licensing music for events, a number of timers and race directors use our Video Results. When they upload their video to YouTube, there is a chance that there is music in the background. In the past YouTube might shut down the video, but it looks like they have put in place some automated processes for music owners to claim use of their music in a video and receive ad revenue.

Here is an example email Jordan got recently:

Hi Jordan Desilets,

A copyright owner using Content ID claimed some material in your video.

This is just a heads up
Don’t worry. You’re not in trouble and your account standing is not affected by this.

There are either ads running on your video, with the revenue going to the copyright owner, or the copyright owner is receiving stats about your video’s views.

Video title: Playing With Spider
Copyrighted song: Rooster
Claimed by: SME
View claim details

What’s next?
If there are no problems, you don’t need to take any action. You don’t need to delete your video.

If something went wrong and the copyright owner or our system made a mistake, we have a dispute process. Only use it if you’re confident you have the rights to use all the content in your video.
