YouTube Copyright Notices

YouTube Copyright Claims

YouTube use algorithms that scans audio of the video you upload to check if you are using copyrighted material.

BjoKib´s tracks are not registered in YouTube content ID so you should NOT get a copyright notice using the music here.

If you get a copyright claim, its a «false positive» meaning the algorithm is wrong or someone have stolen my music and registered it somewhere.

You are allowed to use the music on in YouTube videos according to the license you choose, but since I am not associated with YouTube or similar platforms, I cannot prevent other people from incorrectly claiming that your video violates a copyright.

If you get a claim, don’t panic, do not remove your video, or replace the music. YouTube wont ban or penalize your channel. The copyright claim will be dropped (usually after a few hours) and you wont loose any money if the video is monetized.

When YouTube asks for a reason, check: “I have a license or written permission from the proper rights holder to use this material” In the comments put a link to the page where you downloaded the track. If you have bought a license attach your license certificate or invoice.

This is usually enough, the claim will be removed and you won’t be bothered again. This will also train the algorithm to make better decisions later on.

I also have my own YouTube channel where I show my production process on most of the tracks around here. It proves, that I have produced the music here as well.

My videos receive millions of views, you can earn plenty of money claiming my video.

Maybe, but I also earn recognition which lead to more patrons, donations and sales. I am not into this to earn a quick buck. I am in this for the long run and I have no interest of doing shady practices. I know trust is difficult in todays climate, but I don’t know any other way of putting it.
