Youtube Content ID

YouTube Content ID can only be activated if you have 100% exclusive rights.


This is very important since you active the Content ID in your music, YouTube creates a reference as an invisible fingerprint that will protect your content distributed and will detect all the third party content using your catalogue. So, it will help you to generate plays/downloads.


ContentID is a “piece” of intellectual property that has been created to protect your content in YouTube. Therefore, if you don’t have the exclusive rights to distribute and you active this option, it can generate YouTube property conflicts in the short or long term future and your channel can be punished.


All your official channel content will be claimed as well as the channel of all the fans that are using your audios (User Generated Content). So, by having the ContentID activated, you will receive a claim from us and/or one of our partners (or parent company) in your YouTube Channel.
