GUEST Tech: Advice please - Youtube copyright claim (35) RE: Tech: Advice please - Youtube copyright claim 16 Apr 19

It's not a problem, Gavin. The "copyright" bit is just the YouTube bots making machine decisions based on a tune or a title. I sometimes get such a message on my smartphone - to my YouTube Google email address - and reply immediately saying that the tune is a traditional tune dating from xxxx, or dating from xxx years ago. The outcome is usually another message saying that the copyright claim has been revoked.

If it happens that the song/tune IS in copyright, the worst that happens is that YouTube feels free to pop an advert on to the beginning of your video. But, as I say, I've generally refuted such claims where I have good evidence that it's nonsense.
