About Content ID Music

Who will the claim be from?

The claim will be from "Interstreet Recordings" and you should receive an email from YouTube to advise that you have received a claim from a copyright holder. Please do not dispute the claim. Within the claim on YouTube, it will say the claim is from "Interstreet Recordings: on behalf of Declan DP"

How will I know which song is under this license?

Any video from Declan DP's YouTube channel with "Content ID Music" or "CID Music" in the title has been added into Content ID. These releases are not copyright free and should not be promoted as so. 

 

Please do not dispute the claims because you will be entering into a legal dispute for music that you don't have the rights to. As long as you use the music properly and submit the claim removal form then the claim will be removed by Declan DP.

Licenses for these releases are free and work similarly to Declan DPs' normal song releases.

How do I use the music?

Please follow these exact instructions when using the music on YouTube:
 

  • Copy & Paste the YouTube License in your video description.

  • Make your YouTube video unlisted and submit the claim removal form.

  • We recommend allowing up to three days for the claim to be removed so plan ahead!

See the table below for estimates on claim releases and best times to submit the form.

Monday - Thursday

Estimated 1 - 2 days*

*The distributor has advised that the video(s) need to be unlisted and have an active claim in order for the claim to be removed. On some occasions, it may take longer than the estimate.

Estimated 3 - 4 days*

*The distributor has advised that the video(s) need to be unlisted and have an active claim in order for the claim to be removed. On some occasions, it may take longer than the estimate.

What are the benefits of using these songs?

Copyright infringement isn't nice for lots of people, especially in the case where a copyright holder allows their work to be used for free and so many people use it. The reality is that a single person can't completely stop infringement from happening altogether. The best way to stop it is to start from the beginning.

  • Being prepared and having a copyright claim (and having the claim removed) before your video is made public is 100% better than getting fake claims further down the line, right?

  • As the music is already in Content ID and managed by the copyright holder, you can put your mind to ease that you won't get fake claims.

  • As each claim is manually reviewed, you know that you're using the music correctly.

The benefits are also in the favor of the copyright holder

  • The copyright holder can manage the music and easily see the people that aren't playing by the rules.

  • The copyright holder no longer needs to find any infringing material because this will come to them!

  • As there are no more fake claims, there will be no more angry emails from people that have had their videos claimed, anyone using this Content ID music is already aware that they will get a claim and they also know how to have the claim removed.

  • The copyright holder can gain financially from those who either don't play by the rules or don't care if their monetization is taken from the video (mainly the people that aren't in the YT Partner Program).

Will you add older songs into Content ID

Not for now. I am exploring other options for my older songs and I am in contact with a company that is trying to make it possible to add music into Content ID to only protect the music rather than to monetize. As YouTube is very strict with the Content ID system, this process may take some time but hopefully, in the future, this will be possible, and "Content ID Music" will no longer be needed.

For now, only new releases will be under this new "Content ID Music" license.

Please Note

Declan DP reserves the right to remove material when the music is being infringed/stolen or to not remove any Content ID claim if the end-user does not have a valid license. Reasons for removing the material or keeping the Content ID claim can vary but this would only be done to protect the music, Declan DP and other creators on YouTube.

This cannot be disputed as these are the terms on using music by Declan DP. If you do not agree then you do not need to use the music.

General scenarios and outcomes:

  • When the music is used properly - The claim will be removed after the form above is completed.

  • Invalid or no license - The claim will remain active and the revenue gets paid to Declan DP.

  • Any infringement - The video will be reported and permanently removed from YouTube.
