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! 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.
Is a Content ID claim the same as a copyright strike?
No! A Content ID claim 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.
