A claim is when a match is found between a sound recording and a video – i.e. YouTube identify that a user-generated video contains audio from one or more sound recording. When a claim is created, the monetization policy you selected will be applied to that claim, although sometimes you will be required to confirm this. We will notify you by e-mail when this happens, and you can log in to your EmuBands account and follow the instructions in the e-mail to confirm or release the claim. If your claim is then disputed, we will also notify you by e-mail and will help you to resolve the situation.
