YouTube and ContentID

In the Before Times, ContentID and my work didn’t get along so well. Many people took my music, claimed it as their own, sold it to people, then claimed videos on YouTube through the ContentID system.

YouTube had been working on the problem for a while now – and there is a solution!

YouTube and Google have implemented a white-list layer to their ContentID system, and all of my music has been put into it. That means no one will be able to claim videos with my music in them! As you can see from this handy chart, after they implemented the whitelist in mid-January, the number of false claims has dropped to ZERO!

This has given me back so much much time that I had been spending doing legal help with people so I can do more of what matters – Music! Super thanks to the YouTube team for making things awesome!
