Lin uploads her cover of John’s song to YouTube, but then Content ID claims it and the video is blocked. What should Lin have done before uploading the video?

(A) She should have gotten permission from John to record his song.

(B) She should have given credit to John in the video description.

(C) She should have altered the song so that Content ID couldn’t match it.

(D) None of the above. Content ID automatically blocks cover songs from YouTube.

Explanation

Before uploading her cover of John’s song, Lin should have gotten permission from John to record his song.

If an artist you represent performs a cover song, make sure you have permission from the copyright owners (i.e., songwriter or music publisher). You may need additional licenses to reproduce the original sound recording, include the song in a video, or display the lyrics.
