Youtube New Check Feature Identifies Copyright Violations

Apr, 2021 - by CMI


YouTube Studio for computer and desktops now includes a new feature that evaluates for copyrighted material when a customer uploads a video to the platform.

To make money from YouTube videos, users must strictly adhere to copyright laws. The video sharing platform, in collaboration with copyright holders, actively monitors for any violations of the laws that may result in the video being removed or the channel being banned. To avoid such instances once the post is uploaded, YouTube will now check for copyright violations before uploading the video. Another new feature that has been observed in YouTube Studio is a real-time subscriber count. A twitter post by MattNavarra clearly shows that the new feature is available to YouTube Studio creators. The latest Checks function, as the title suggests, verifies for any copyrighted posts before uploading the video in the Google's platform. It makes use of YouTube's Content ID system, which scans the information against a copyright database and reports if any violations is found. This system will verify for copyright violation before uploading a video rather than after, giving makers the chance to make changes to the content before it is released.

If there are any issues with the videos, users can use the new check feature to dispute the claim or edit and fix it. These checks assist users in learning about potential limitations so that they can address them before publishing. Although this device is unlikely to solve the entire problem of copyright violation, it is a significant step forward in reducing the number of problems. However, even if the system approves the video, copyright owners can still update the video after it is uploaded. In other YouTube-related posts, the platform has confirmed that it will begin deducting taxes from makers outside of the United States. It's only meant for profits raised by their viewers in the United States. However, the new measures related to these taxes do not apply to makers within the United States.
