YouTube Content ID
YouTube Content ID is an automated digital fingerprint technology that helps music copyright owners to detect videos used by others in the platform that contain content they own. This can make reference to copyrighted audio or video content.
When uploading content on YouTube, the copyright owner (songwriter, record label or publisher) has to provide a reference copy of the material, then the platform creates a digital fingerprint with a specific Content ID attached to that piece.
The Contend ID is later used to scan all videos and to identify potential matches on assets uploaded by other users.
If there is a content match, the platform automatically claims it on behalf of the owner. To know more about it visit our dedicated page about Youtube Content ID
If you received a YouTube Content ID claim from SonoSuite, it means the video you uploaded on your channel contains copyrighted audio or video content from a record label or music distributor that uses our platform, and the Content ID doesn't recognize you as the owner of that material.
Music copyright owners (songwriters, record labels, or publishers) are the ones deciding who can reuse their music-licensed content on DSPs like YouTube. They can use Content ID to block videos from others that contain music they own.
When uploading a new video, content holders need to ensure that the material is eligible for Content ID, which means they have verified to YouTube that they have exclusive rights to that specific material.
To avoid a YouTube Content ID claim, make sure you have a proper license for the music used in your videos and that this content has been fully verified on the platform.
You can dispute a YouTube Content ID claim from the corresponding section on your YouTube Studio panel.
