Music and Copyright – Copyright on YouTube

Music and Copyright – Copyright on YouTube


Hi, I’m Michelle,
here to answer your copyright questions. Today’s topic is Music and Copyright. I played, sang
or whistled the song entirely by myself and didn’t use
a single second of the recording. Why did I still get a copyright strike? There are two distinct copyrights in music. Most people are familiar with the one
for the artist or band who recorded the song but there is a second set of copyrights
for the lyrics and melody also known as the composition
or publishing rights. When you sing, hum
or play a song on an instrument even if it’s in an entirely original way,
you’re using the copyrighted melody or words. If you use all
or even just a small part of a song you may receive a copyright strike
or Content ID claim. But keep in mind that most composition claims
are eligible for revenue sharing for creators in the YouTube Partner Programme. If you’re eligible you’ll be offered the option
to share the revenue of that video by confirming the video is a cover. I keep hearing about Content ID claims
where the song isn’t even there. What is YouTube doing about that? At its heart, Content ID is
what’s known as a matching system and it faces all the challenges
and limitations all matching systems face. Sometimes the system
can make a totally incorrect match like claiming someone’s video
where they’re doing a simple microphone test or even white noise. In these cases,
YouTube engineers immediately go to work to diagnose and fix the problems. In other cases entirely different original songs
can match parts of each other because they use the same beat track. We’re constantly working
to find solutions to avoid problems like these but we also understand that
no automated system will ever be perfect. This is why the dispute process
is an essential part of Content ID. As a creator, you have the most knowledge
about the content in your videos and how it was used so we built the dispute process to empower you
to escalate problems to the claimant and even escalate
as far as the courts if needed. If both you and the claimant are attempting
to monetise the video under dispute we will continue to monetise your video and will release the accrued earnings
to the appropriate party once the dispute is resolved. What rights do I need to buy
to use a song in my video? To properly use a song in a video,
typically you need an official music licence. These grant you the rights to use a song but be sure to read these licences carefully. Licences typically contain
explicit permission for using the content but may include limitations on exclusivity,
duration, geography or other terms. You should seek legal advice
for any licensing agreements. Although YouTube can’t
help you get these licences we can help you find music
that you can use in your videos. Our YouTube Audio Library is a great way to
find free background music or sound effects. There are also third-party services that
allow you to purchase music for your videos that won’t result in claims. Why are music publishers
enforcing copyright on YouTube but not anywhere else? Music publishers administer rights
on behalf of songwriters and provide an important service in allowing songwriters
to profit from what they create. In fact, music publishing rights are enforced almost anywhere music is performed,
streamed or otherwise transmitted and not just on YouTube.>From music playing on the radio
to live performances, to cover songs publishing rights are relevant in all cases and, where necessary, enforced. And that’s it for Music and Copyright. Check out more info in our Help Centre,
