YouTube Will Now Warn Creators About Copyright Issues Before Videos Are Posted
YouTube is rolling out a new step in the upload process on Studio desktop called “Checks” – which will automatically screen your uploads for potential copyright claims and ad suitability restrictions.
This new step will help minimize the number of videos uploaded with copyright claims and/or yellow icons and avoid surprises or worries.
During the upload flow on the desktop, you’ll see the option to review your video in the new “checks” step for potential copyright claims and ad-suitability issues before the video is published.
The copyright checks usually finish within 3 minutes, while monetization checks can take a couple of minutes longer.
If a copyright claim is found, you‘ll see what you can do to address it when clicking on ‘See details’. You’ll be able to see the content being claimed, including the timecode it appears at, and the impact the claim has on your video.
