YouTube's new move to stop copyright theft

YouTube's new move to stop copyright theft

YouTube has unveiled a new tool called 'Checks' to simplify the process of uploading audio and receiving ad revenue.

Before uploading a video, this tool tells the content creator whether it contains copyrighted material and whether it adheres to the ad directory.

Previously, creators uploaded videos without warning. A new feature now suggests content creators upload copyrighted material. So that the copyright holder can claim the ad revenue of the video without any dispute.

With the new tool, creators want to reduce the 'yellow icon' they earn due to YouTube copyright and directory weaknesses.

The new system will be based on Content ID, the company said. If YouTube's copyright recognition system scans a video and finds that the rules have been violated, the original copyright holder will automatically take over the video.

As a result, the video is completely blocked or the actual copyright holder can monetize it. Even if it's on someone else's channel.

If the content of the creator's video is found to be infringing on another person's copyright, the uploader of such video will receive a notice from the company, where it is warned to remove the copyrighted part before uploading the video.

In this way, any video can claim its ad revenue without getting involved in copyright issues. It is expected that YouTube will have a good impact on the overall ad revenue generated by the creator

What if the creator is accused of copyright without doing anything wrong? In such a case, before uploading the video, YouTube has arranged for the creator to present his argument by refuting the allegation.

As the copyright claim process takes a few days, YouTubers may have to wait until the issue is resolved. Otherwise, they may even make the video public before the final results come out.

In the end, if the creator does not steal the copyright, then the creator gets the money for the advertisement. But if the copyright claim is found to be valid, the money will go to the copyright holder.
