What Protection Policies Work Best For You?
One of the biggest mistakes a creator can make is leaving their video and audio content vulnerable to piracy on the web. Since protecting your intellectual property is our priority at Vydia, we encourage all of our creators to proactively safeguard their content with our protection policies. Based on your content strategy goals, the Vydia platform enables creators to select different protection policies for how they want their content managed on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. The 4 protection policies include:
- Monetize– selected platforms may display advertisements with the content, which generates revenue that Vydia collects on your behalf.
- Block– selected platforms will prevent users from uploading your protected content.
- Permit– selected platforms will allow users to upload content that contains your copyrighted material. Performance metrics, like views, will be tracked however, no revenue will be generated.
- No Policy– Vydia will not claim your copyrights on selected platforms.
If you have questions about what protection policy works best for you, feel free to contact Vydia Support.
Is Your Content Ready For Protection?
In order to provide our creators with the most efficient protection process possible, your audio and video content must meet Vydia’s and our partner platform standards and guidelines before any protection policies can be applied. To ensure your content is ready for protection, keep in mind:
- Understand & Assert Ownership Accordingly– Do you own 100% of the copyrighted content you are trying to protect? This is THE most important question to ask yourself before submitting a video or audio file for protection. If you are using a free beat downloaded from the internet or have another company that represents your music like TuneCore or CD Baby please contact Vydia Support for next steps.
- Metadata Is A Must– You will need to provide detailed and accurate metadata for each individual asset you have rightful ownership over (music video, sound recording, composition). For example, when filling out your metadata on the Vydia platform, a “creator” is the “artist” associated with the particular copyright. Our platform uses both metadata and reference files to flag content and ensures the revenue is going back to its rightful owner.
- Connect Your Social Media- If you are looking to protect your video and audio content across the web you will need to make sure your social media is linked to your Vydia account. Please note, you must connect a Facebook Page, Instagram Business Account, and YouTube channel for the specific creator (artist) you are submitting content for.
- Monitor Your Account Regularly– As you submit content for protection, make sure you are consistently logging into your Vydia account to keep an eye out for additional correspondence from our team. You may need to complete additional steps before any protection can take place.
- Quality Is Key– Our partner platforms only accept HD dimensions for video files. Make sure when you are uploading content for protection that the video is at least 1280 x 720 and plays in its entirety. For audio files, our partner platforms only accept .wav files. Your tracks must be clear and in stereo, not mono.
- Keep Us Updated With Ad Campaigns– Vydia and its partner platforms have strict guidelines against fraudulent activity like paying for views. In order to deter denial from these platforms, if you have purchased an advertising campaign like Google Ads or any other campaign, please provide that information at the onset of your audio or video release.
