Request an Art Track takedown

The features described in this article are available only to partners who use YouTube's Content Manager to manage their copyrighted content.

If you need the Art Track for one of your sound recordings to be taken down from YouTube, issue a takedown request using the same method you used to deliver the original sound recordings:

  • Upload a new version of the Art Track upload spreadsheet with the ownership rights removed for the tracks you want to take down. Any track without a value for track_territory_start_dates is taken down.

  • Submit a new DDEX file that has the  <EndDate> tag set at least two days in the past (to account for time zone differences). Learn more about takedowns.

If you submit an Art Track spreadsheet to request a takedown for a recording delivered using DDEX, the spreadsheet must identify the recording using the same identifiers (GRid, EAN, or UPC) as the original DDEX file.
