When you create a release and tick Yes on ‘YouTube Content ID’, we’ll submit your release to YouTube’s Content ID system.
This is one of many ways in which you can utilise YouTube to monetise your content.
YouTube’s Content ID system uses audio fingerprinting to identify videos that use all or part of your music in them. Claims are placed on these matching videos which monetise the audio on your behalf.
In order for your release to be eligible for distribution to the Content ID system, it must not contain any non-exclusive samples or content that might have already been uploaded to Content ID.
YouTube will send the copyright claim on your channel, it’s not harmful. You can easily release the claim by using this tool.
