Understanding and Managing Copyright Claims in YouTube Studio

Published: December 2, 2020

For content creators on YouTube, navigating the complexities of copyright claims is essential to keep their channels thriving. YouTube Studio offers a suite of features and tools that help creators manage copyright strikes and Content ID claims effectively.

The Copyright Strikes Card

Upon accessing the YouTube Studio dashboard, creators are greeted with the Copyright Strikes card. This card summarizes any copyright strikes your channel may have, and clicking on it reveals details about the affected videos, including the specific parts highlighted by the claimant in the takedown notice.

How to Resolve Copyright Strikes

YouTube Studio provides straightforward instructions on how to resolve copyright strikes. Within the video library, creators can tap into YouTube’s dedicated tools to address these issues promptly.

Filtering Copyright Claims in Your Video Library

With the ‘Copyright claims’ filter, creators can sort their video library to show only the videos that have been impacted by copyright claims. This streamlined approach makes it easier to find and rectify issues with content.

Insights from the Restrictions Column

The ‘Restrictions’ column in the video library offers in-depth insights into the consequences of copyright claims on your videos and channel. Hovering over the restrictions reveals crucial details, empowering creators with information to decide on their next moves.

Actions for Handling Claims

YouTube equips creators with a range of options to confront copyright issues efficiently:

  • When faced with a strike from a copyright takedown, creators can see its effects on video visibility and monetization. The interface provides options to reach out to the claimant or to file a counter-notification.
  • For Content ID claims that do not lead to strikes but still impact video visibility or monetization, creators will find pertinent information and can choose to dispute the claim or edit the affected content. This allows for the preservation of the original video URLs and view counts.
