Appeal to video services (such as YouTube) in order to block the illegal placement of your content

When to apply?

When detecting illegal content placement on a video service (for example, YouTube).

What types of violations are covered?

Illegal reproduction, distribution of copyright and/or related rights objects.

What can be achieved?

Blocking of the illegally placed content

What should be done?
  • Use Content ID system. Content ID helps right holders to identify and manage their content on YouTube. The system stores digital imprints – samples of content downloaded by the right holders. All new videos placed on YouTube are compared to the imprints. If a coincidence occurs, Content ID claims the rights to the videos on behalf of the right holder and applies the policy chosen by them.
  • Apply manually to the CMS, where Content ID is available. If it should happen that Content ID does not work or does not work correctly, the right holder has an opportunity to apply for manual locking. In doing so, you need to provide a link to a video that uses copyrighted material as well as an Asset ID that specifies which piece of the right holder’s video is being used illegally.
  • Report copyright infringement. Any internet user may apply for removal of a video that, in his opinion, infringes copyright. It is enough to fill out a form in which it is necessary to provide as much information as possible about the copyright object.
