YouTube’s Content ID technology protects your videos from being pirated. When you put your video through the Content ID system, YouTube’s will “fingerprint” the content, which means that your video will be unique in YouTube’s database. When someone uploads a video using your content, YouTube will recognize it and allow you to monetize or block that video.

Ownership Conflicts occur when another YouTube partner attempts to claim ownership over an exclusive copyright Vydia is already administering for you. Ownership conflicts can negatively affect Content ID revenue, so it is important to resolve these conflicts as soon as possible.

It’s important to resolve a conflict claim as soon as possible to ensure that there is minimal revenue lost. To resolve a conflict, reach out reach out to the conflicting owner directly and request that they remove their ownership from YouTube. You can also submit a support ticket to our in-house Content ID team at support.vydia.com, be sure to include the link to the video being claimed.
