Content Verification Programme

YouTube is committed to helping content holders find and remove allegedly infringing content from our platform. The Content Verification Programme helps copyright owners search for material that they believe to be infringing and provide YouTube with information that is reasonably sufficient to permit us to locate and remove that material.

The Content Verification Programme is designed especially for copyright-holding companies to issue multiple removal requests. Individual notifications may be submitted by following these instructions.

If you already have a YouTube account, you can apply for access to this tool by filling in the YouTube Content Verification Programme Application. This form identifies your authorised agents and acts as a legal affirmation that you hold copyright to the material about which you will notify YouTube. If you do not currently have an account, please create an account, after which you can access the Content Verification Programme Application.
