This is a first. One of my YouTube videos has a copyright claim on it through Content ID. This is not a copyright strike against my account, but it does notify me that someone has claimed that there is copyrighted material on a video of mine. As a result, that video is blocked in Germany. I made a video talking about it. Please excuse the wet hair.
The video in question is one of my A Taste of Japan videos that shows a couple yosakoi dance performances, and one of the songs has been Content IDed.
My question is this: has this ever happened to you? And what did you do? What do you think I should do?
I have several options:
- Do nothing. The video will continue to be blocked in Germany.
- Delete the video. No one can watch it.
- Mute the section that has been Content IDed.
- Replace the Content IDed section with YouTube-provided music.
What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
