  4. Someone else has claimed my Sound Recording, what can I do?

If you have an EmuBands Pro subscription, and instructed EmuBands to apply a policy to a Sound Recording which another distributor is claiming via Content ID, this will cause a Dispute. When a dispute is raised for a Sound Recording we have distributed to Content ID on your behalf, a member of our team will be in touch with you for more information, and will ask you to confirm you are the exclusive rights-holder of the Sound Recording before we contact the other party who is also claiming the Sound Recording to resolve this / have them release their claim.

Disputes can be time consuming and drawn-out, so if you are aware of any claims currently placed on your Sound Recording by another distributor – for example, if they previously managed your copyrights on Content ID, and you wish to switch to EmuBands – it is important to try to have them rescind their claim before you add your Sound Recordings to the EmuBands Content ID service.

If you have an EmuBands Basic or Plus subscription, you will need to upgrade your account’s plan via the ‘Subscription’ section of your EmuBands account, before you can access our Content ID service.
