  4. How do I get a video removed from YouTube?

If you find a video on YouTube which is using your Sound Recordings without permission, you have two ways to assert your rights:

1. You can ‘claim’ the video using our Content ID service, and instruct us to apply the monetization policy you have set for the Sound Recording. Depending on the monetization policy you choose for the Sound Recording, we will either ‘Track’ it, by collecting statistics on videos using your Sound Recording, ‘Monetise’ it by placing ads on videos using your Sound Recording (and returning 100% of any ad revenues back to you), or we can ‘Block’ any videos using your Sound Recording, which will make it unavailable. Managing your copyrights via Content ID is often quicker and more efficient than having to go issue a formal Copyright takedown request.

If you have an EmuBands Pro subscription, you will be able to register your releases with Content ID. If you have an EmuBands Basic or Plus subscription, you can upgrade your account’s plan via the ‘Subscription’ section of your EmuBands account.

2. You can contact YouTube directly, and ask them to issue a copyright takedown. In order to do this, YouTube will ask you to submit a formal notice to them, which carries legal requirements. You can learn more about the process here: Submit a copyright takedown request [google.com]
