How should you deal with third-party content in your reference?

(A) Transfer ownership of the asset.

(B) Update your metadata and keywords.

(C) Deactivate your reference file.

(D) Exclude segments in your Spreadsheet Templates or in CMS.


If you have third-party content in your reference, you can exclude third-party content segments from your reference file – also known as a reference exclusion – thereby creating a reference that reflects your sole ownership.

For example, if you have a music video that contains clips of a video you don’t own, or a sound recording that contains samples, you would exclude the material you don’t own from your reference.
