Music and Copyright - Copyright on YouTube

We're here to answer your Copyright questions. In this article, we dive into frequently asked questions about music and Copyright on YouTube. We talk about receiving copyright strikes for cover songs, what rights you need to use a song in a video, and other options for using music in your videos.

hi I'm Michele here to answer your copyright questions today's topic is music and copyright I played saying or whistled the song entirely by myself and didn't use a single second of the recording.

Why did I still get a copyright strike?

There are two distinct copyrights in music most people are familiar with the one for the artist or band who recorded the song but there is a second set of copyrights for the lyrics and melody also known as the composition or publishing rights.

When you sing hum or play a song in an instrument even if it's in an entirely original way you're using the copyrighted melody or words if you use.

All or even just a small part of a song you may receive a copyright strike or Content ID claim but keep in mind that most composition claims are eligible for revenue sharing for creators in the YouTube Partner Program.

If you're eligible you'll be offered the option to share the revenue of that video by confirming the video as a cover I keep hearing about Content ID claims where the song isn't even there?

What is Youtube doing about that at its heart Content ID is what's known as a matching system

And it faces all the challenges and limitations that all matching systems face sometimes the system can make a totally incorrect match like claiming someone's video where they're doing a simple microphone test or even white noise in these cases YouTube.

Engineers immediately go to work to diagnose and fix the problems in other cases entirely different original songs can match parts of each other because they use the same beat track we're constantly working to find solutions to avoid problems like these but we also understand that no automated system will ever be perfect.

This is why the dispute process is an essential part of Content ID as a creator you have the most knowledge about the content in your videos and how it was used so we built the dispute process to empower you to escalate problems to the claimant and even escalate as far as the courts if needed if both you and the claimant are attempting to monetize a video under dispute.

Google will continue to monetize your video and we'll release the accrued earnings to the appropriate party once the dispute is resolved what rights do I need to buy to use a song in my video to properly use a song in a video typically you need an official music license.

These grant you the rights to use the song but be sure to read these licenses carefully licenses typically contain explicit permission for using the content but may include limitations on exclusivity duration geography or other terms you should seek legal advice for any licensing agreements although

YouTube can't help you get these licenses we can help you find the music that you can use in your videos our youtube audio library is a great way to find free background music or sound effects there are also third-party services that allow you to purchase music for your videos that won't result in claims.

Why are music publishers enforcing copyright on YouTube

But not anywhere else music publishers administer rights on behalf of songwriters and provide an important service in allowing songwriters to profit from what they create in fact music publishing rights are enforced almost anywhere music is performed streamed or otherwise transmitted and not just on YouTube from music playing on the radio to live performances to cover songs publishing rights are relevant in all cases. and where necessary enforced and that's it for music and copyright check out more info and our Help Center links below and be sure to check out the other videos in youtube copyright.
