YouTube uses a system called Content ID that helps copyright owners protect their music. When you upload a new video to your channel, YouTube automatically checks from matching music in its content ID database. If it finds a match you may get a copy-right claim.
In most cases, you’ll get an email from YouTube stating there’s a claim from the copyright holder.
It won’t mention Adobe stock by name here are the steps you’ll need to take to clear the claim from YouTube.

Copyright registeration in U.S
You’re creating your masterpiece, but should you register the copy-right?
And if so, how does the process work?
The United States Copyright Office registers over half a million copyright claims each year.
Under current copyright law, you do not need to register your work to receive copyright protection in the United States.
Instead, copyright protection is automatic as soon as an eligible work is created in a fixed and tangible form.
But registration gives you several important benefits.
First, to enforce your copyright in a U.S work court you will need either a registration certificate or a letter of refusal from the Copyright Office.
Second, registration can make it easier for you to prove your legal case.
If you register your work before you publish it, or within five years after first publication, the facts on the certificate are presumed to be correct.
As a result, during a lawsuit, the defendant, or person accused of infringement, carries the burden to prove that particular facts on the certificate are inaccurate.
Third, if you register your work before someone infringes your rights, or within three months of first publishing the work, you can ask a court to have the infringer pay your attorney’s fees.
You’ll also be able to ask for statutory damages instead of actual damages, which can be difficult to prove in copy right cases.
Finally, after registering your work, you can ask U.S. Customs and Border Protection to seize unauthorized imports of infringing copies.
Here you can learn more about U.S Copyright Law.
Registration also benefits the copy-right system and the general public.
It creates a public record of claims to ownership and authorship, which can help people contact a copy right owner to seek permission to use a work.
So, now that you know how important it is to register your copy right, how do you do it?
To register, apply to the Copy-right Office.
The standard application is generally the best option for one work.
We strongly encourage filing online at copyright.gov
The online system offers many benefits, including lower filing fees, faster processing, electronic payment, and for some types of works, the option to upload your work.
The Office also offers options for registering some types of works in groups using one application and filing fee.
Before the Office can examine your application, it must be complete.
It must include the correct fee payment, as well as the required copy, or in some cases, copies of the work.
The application form, filing fee, and other requirements depend on what type of work, or works, you’re trying to register for.
You can learn more at copyright.gov, where you’ll find guidance and tutorials for registering specific works.
What happens when your application arrives at the Copyright Office?
Once you submit your application, it is assigned to an examiner to determine whether your copy-right claim can be registered. If there are questions, the examiner may email you, so, keep an eye on your inbox.
The examiner first checks for missing information or mistakes, then compares the information on the application to the copy of the work you submitted.
Examiners don’t normally investigate the factual claims made on the application, such as the identity of the author, or the date of creation unless there are obvious contradictions in the application materials.
The examiner may also have questions about information known by the Copy right Office or the general public.
The examiner verifies that your work is a type protected under the Copyright Act.
- Literary works such as novels, poems, and textbooks
- Musical works like songs
- Dramatic works
- Pantomimes and Choreographic works
- Sculptural works
- TV shows
- Sound recordings
- Architectural plans
Copyright does not protect ideas, systems, methods, or discoveries.
The examiner also checks that the work is original. This is a critical task. To be original a work must be both independently created and creative. The law doesn’t require a lot of creativity.
In fact, most works submitted to the copy-right Office make the grade quite easy.
However, not all works are sufficiently original to be protected. For example, single words, names, titles of works, slogans, short phrases, and simple shapes are not protected under copyright.
The examiner must also determine whether a submitted work was independently created by the author.
The Copy right Office makes this determination based on the materials you submit in the application and information known by the Office or the general public.
It does not do outside research or compare your work to the work of others.
A common error is when the submitted work doesn’t match the information provided in the application, so the examiner looks for any discrepancies.
You must indicate in your application if the work contains a substantial amount of material that was created by someone else, or that was previously published or registered.
If the examiner decides that the Copyright Office can’t register your work, you will receive a letter of refusal.
There is a process to ask the office to reconsider its decision. However, the refusal letter is sufficient to be able to bring a lawsuit regarding the work.
In most cases, if there are no issues with the application, the examiner approves the application and the office mails you a certificate. Congratulations! You have a registration.
