YouTube Videos (Content ID)

The licensor maintains the unlimited, worldwide rights to register his beat compositions with a content-ID/audio ID program/institution and be the sole administrator of YouTube rights using such a content ID program. Licensee is not allowed to submit the video (track/song) to the Content/Audio ID system on YouTube! This is necessary and entitles licensor to maintain the administrative and legislative rights to the beat-composition, in order to be able to ensure non-exclusive and exclusive license owners administrative guidance and license-warranties. The main purpose is to stop people from stealing beats and using/monetizing them in videos without owning a license. What content/audio ID does is to scan YouTube videos for audio material produced by Ric Beats and automatically send a copyright claim, which blocks your videos from monetization temporarily. Don’t worry! This claim is more a notification and will NOT harm your channel or video, nor does it force you to take down the video(s), it only disables the monetization option temporarily. Your video will keep playing without any other limitations. IMPORTANT! – All license owners need to send us their link(s) to their video(s) and details of purchase so we can put their video(s) on the whitelist and remove the copyright claim within 24 hours – please send details/links to: including your full name, link to video(s) and/or email address used for purchase. This is the exact message you might receive: Due to a copyright claim, you are no longer monetizing the following YouTube video. It is still playable on YouTube, but the copyright owner could choose to show ads on it. It may therefore be possible that you receive a copyright claim on your YouTube video(s), even if you own a license. As listed above, please follow the instructions written in bold! Using a content ID program is the only way we can assure that only people with an appropriate beat-license are monetizing their videos rightfully and legally on YouTube. It also protects your videos from receiving fraudulent claims by third parties that claim to own the administrative rights to the beats. If you have any questions concerning this issue, feel free to contact us anytime via email and we will respond in 24 business hours.
