How Can We Help?
Who can use Youtube Content ID?
YouTube only grants Content ID to copyright owners who meet specific criteria. To be approved, they must own exclusive rights to a substantial body of original material that is frequently uploaded by the YouTube user community.
YouTube also sets explicit guidelines on how to use Content ID. We monitor Content ID use and disputes on an ongoing basis to ensure these guidelines are followed.
Content owners who repeatedly make erroneous claims can have their Content ID access disabled and their partnership with YouTube terminated.
If you are a content owner and believe your content meets the criteria, you can fill out this form
