Who claimed my video?

Updates to the Video Copyright Details page in YouTube Studio: Over the next few months, we're gradually rolling out 2 changes to the Video Copyright Details page. On a video’s Details page, a new Copyright tab will be added so you can easily access the Video Copyright Details page. Also, we’re updating the page design, so you may notice some new button locations. Keep in mind that the available info and the options for responding to claims aren’t changing.

Want to learn more about the copyright owner who claimed material in your video through Content ID? You can find info about them in YouTube Studio.

Where to look

  1. Sign in to YouTube Studio.
  2. From the left menu, select Content .
  3. Click the filter bar and then Copyright claims.
  4. In the Restrictions column, hover over Copyright claim.
  5. Click SEE DETAILS.
  6. Look under the Copyright owners section to find out who claimed the video.

Who is the copyright owner?

The copyright owner who claimed content in your video may be a television network, movie studio, website, recording artist, record label, or other third party who owns or is authorized to manage the rights to the content.

While you might not recognize the owner, it doesn’t necessarily mean their claim is invalid.

Sometimes, you’ll get claims from several different copyright owners for different pieces of content you used in your video. You could also get several claims for the same piece of content from companies that own rights in different countries/regions.

If "one or more music publishing rights collecting societies" has claimed your video, you may want to learn more about collective rights management.

YouTube didn’t claim your video and can’t mediate your copyright dispute with the company that did. If you believe that a Content ID claim on your video was made in error, you can dispute it.
