Who is Younited Media?

Younited Media is a music distributor that helps artists and labels get their music into YouTube Content ID.

Why did I receive a YouTube Content ID claim from Younited Media?

If you have received a Content ID claim from "Younited Media GmbH Music", this is most likely because you used content owned by one of our clients, and YouTube's automated system detected a match.

Don't worry: A Content ID claim does not negatively affect your channel! It simply means that the artist will receive ad revenue from the claim. 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 not a copyright strike or formal legal complaint. It's simply a tool to collect royalties for artists.

Please do not dispute the claim if you do not have a valid license, as this may result in restrictions such as copyright strikes.

When our clients sell licenses for their music, or allow uploaders to use their music for free with attribution (sometimes called "Free To Use Music"), we review all matches detected by YouTube before placing a claim.

If you received a claim after a manual review, 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 leave the claim without putting your channel in danger. Alternatively, you may retroactively add the required attribution, and email us to have the claim released.

I have a license to use the claimed content. How can I get the claim released?

Please contact our team at mail@younited.media and clarify why you have a license to use the claimed content. We will review your request in cooperation with the rights holder and get back to you within 7 business days.

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