YouTubers have always suffered from strikes for copyright infringement. Often, creators must remove, edit, and re-upload the video to maintain monetization, which in turn affects user engagement.
YouTube Now Allows Creators to Remove Copyrighted Content From Videos
Well, with the latest update from YouTube Studio, YouTube has introduced a new tool called Assisted Trim to provide more flexibility for creators.
With the Assisted Trim function, YouTubers can simply delete the copyrighted content to raise the complaint, thereby eliminating the need to completely delete the video from the platform. It would help a lot of YouTube creators who unknowingly add copyrighted content to their videos.
As you can see in the GIF above, YouTube offers three ways to delete the claimed content. You can either cut the segment containing the content, cut the disputed sound, or even replace the sound with another audio portion of your choice.
At this time, the endpoints for the claimed segment are predefined and you cannot change them. YouTube says it would allow endpoints to be adjusted later so the viewer’s experience isn’t interrupted.
With Assisted Trim, YouTube will now display information about channel copyright warnings on the Studio dashboard. “We are also providing more transparency on the content of the removal of copyright than ever before, now surfacing the specific description of the work protected by the claimant in the notice of withdrawal.”
In cases where this information is not readily available, it is possible to contact our copyright team to obtain a copy of the withdrawal notice. “ Wrote the representative of the company on a support page.
A new “Copyright Claims” video list filter and a “Restrictions” column have also been added to the Videos page which allows creators to quickly filter all videos affected by copyright infringement or Content ID claims.
