(A) Dispute the claim if you have rights to the material.
(B) Remove the video, then re-upload it the next day.
(C) Remove the claimed segment from your video.
(D) Review the claim, then take no action if it’s valid.
The action that would not properly address another user’s Content ID claim against your video is removing the video and then re-uploading it the next day. The Content ID claim will stay with that video even if you re-upload that video.
To properly address another user’s Content ID claim against your video the user can agree with the Content ID claim, or take actions such as:
- Remove claimed segments from the video.
- Replace claimed songs with free music and sound effects from YouTube’s Audio Library.
- Share revenue for eligible covers (not available in all situations).
- Dispute the Content ID claim if they have rights to use the copyrighted material.
