DISCLAIMER: Due to the generality of this update, the information contained in this document may not be applicable in all situations and should not be implemented without specific legal advice based on specific situations. However, many will also question whether this procedure is legal. These and other things, we want to clarify now in the following guide for you. The situation is much less complicated than you think. Each year, YouTube can only provide fair use protection to a few videos selected based on many factors. In general, we select the videos that best demonstrate fair use, based on the four fair use factors listed above. YouTube receives many takedown requests to remove videos that copyright holders say infringe copyright. Sometimes these requests target videos that appear to be clear examples of fair use. The courts have ruled that copyright owners must consider fair dealing before sending a copyright notice. For this reason, we often ask copyright owners to confirm that they have performed this analysis.

The easiest way to deal with Content ID claims is to avoid them in the first place. Don`t use copyrighted material unless it`s essential to your video. In the YouTube audio library, you can find music that you can use for free in your videos. If you wish to obtain music from other royalty-free or licensed websites, please read the terms and conditions carefully. Some of these services may not grant the rights to use or monetize music on YouTube, so you might still end up with a Content ID claim. YouTube`s current copyright cases are fraught with pitfalls that prevent content creators from creating and publishing new works. Computer algorithms such as Content ID have no discretion and are unable to distinguish between unauthorized and authorized use of copyrighted works. This will result in the removal of legally permitted videos. Mr. Jeffrey Addicott, Director, Center for Terrorism Law, St.
