If you get a copyright strike, it means your video was taken down because we received a valid legal request from the copyright owner.

There are a few ways to resolve a copyright strike:
  • You can wait for it to expire
  • Get a retraction
  • Submit a counter notification.
Things to keep in mind:
  • Deleting a video with a strike won’t resolve the strike and we can’t process disputes if the video is deleted.
  • You cannot monetize with a copyright strike.
  • Note that copyright strikes are different from Content ID claims.

Learn more Copyright strike basics (and what you can do about them) in our Help Center.
