  • Can you manage content id claims as they come in? To release claims on videos for which a license has been purchased?

  • Yeah, I had about the same question. Is content ID well made enough to decide whether or not a video is just an illegal one who ripped my beats or a customer with a legit license (witch a sync feature)? What happens in the latter case? I'm currently reluctant to use this feature just because of that.

    From what I understand, if someone is allowed by a license to use my beat in a song/video on Youtube, is it fair that I'm the only one who can monetize the video? Is it possible to solve this very issue?

  • I also have this problem to understand.
    However, I believe that it is not a good thing to put the content-ID of a beat that you then have to sell through non-exclusive licenses and even less with exclusive licenses.
    Imagine being an artist and buying an exclusive beat and then making a song to publish on YouTube or a Video with that beat and being blocked by content ID, it's not a good thing after paying for that beat.
