Don't worry: A Content ID claim does not negatively affect your channel! Read below for the difference between a claim and a strike.

Why did I receive a claim for "free to use" music?

Some of the artists we work for allow creators to use their music for free if they provide sufficient attribution (sometimes called "Free To Use Music"). This means you are allowed to use the music for free, if you include correct credits to the artist in your video description.

If you received a claim from us, this means our team has double-checked you do not have a valid license to use the music, and/or did not display the required attribution. You can read below to learn how to get the claim released.

No! A Content ID claim does is not dangerous for your channel, regardless of how many you receive. A Content ID claim only means that we will collect revenue on behalf of the artist or label that owns the music. You can ignore the claim, and it will not affect you or your channel in any way.

It's important to note that a Content ID claim is very different from a copyright strike.

What can I do to get the claim released?

If you were using "free to use" music, you can simply add the required attribution to your video description (and make sure you follow the artist's other requirements). You can find all details on the artist's official YouTube channel or website.

After you have added the required attribution, send us an email to disputes@younited.media with your video links. We will review your request and get back to you within 2 - 5 business days.

You do not need to dispute the claim on YouTube - if you meet all requirements and send us an email, we will release the claim.

The information you provide will be shared with the rights holder to verify your claim.
