Understanding the Copyright Match Tool and Protecting Your Content

The Copyright Match Tool is a robust function designed to empower creators to safeguard their original content and effectively manage their copyright choices. In today’s post, we’ll explore the inner workings of the Copyright Match Tool, discuss how creators can access this feature, and outline the actionable steps to follow upon identifying potential copyright matches.

Introduction to the Copyright Match Tool Functionality

At its core, the Copyright Match Tool serves to autonomously locate videos that are significantly similar to your original content. By employing advanced matching technology akin to Content ID, this tool offers a more efficient management protocol and requires fewer resources, enhancing the overall experience for creators.

Three Routes to Access the Copyright Match Tool

To tap into the capabilities of the Copyright Match Tool, creators have several access points:

  1. YouTube Partner Program Members: Membership in the YouTube Partner Program provides instant tool access.
  2. Copyright Management Tools Application: Creators can apply for access and upon approval, use the full spectrum of the tool’s features.
  3. Copyright Takedown Request Form: Successfully removing a video through the copyright takedown request form grants creators eligibility to use the feature.

Utilizing upload dates to determine the semblance of the videos, the tool scans for complete reuploads of your videos on other channels. It encompasses Public, Unlisted, and even Private videos, thus offering comprehensive coverage. Moreover, creators who have submitted a valid copyright takedown request via YouTube’s webform are also welcomed to benefit from this indispensable tool.

How to Review Potential Matches and Take Appropriate Action

Creators with access to the tool can navigate to the ‘Copyright’ section in YouTube Studio and proceed to the ‘Matches’ tab to review any detected similarities. The tool conveniently presents detailed information on matches, including the view counts of matched videos, the upload dates, and the subscriber count of the channels that uploaded the videos. It also quantifies the percentage of likeness between the matched uploads and the original content, aiding creators in making informed decisions about the next steps.
