This information for those who use our music in their online videos and have received a message stating “matched third party content” and that ads will be enabled on your video.
In an attempt to protect my intellectual property from improper and disallowed use, my work is registered with a company that scans uploaded Youtube content and flags it where it deems my work has been used improperly.
This is not a perfect system and your legitimate use of my work may be flagged. Don’t worry, you can dispute a claim per the instructions on this page. Providing you are using my work within your allowed use, you will not receive a strike against your account.
The attempt of the company is not to stop people from utilizing our music online; far from it as I encourage the free use of my work. Instead, they are there to ensure that those who are using my music are doing so within the realms of what is allowed.
This means that those uploading commercial content or monetizing videos without a license will be forced to have to advertise on their videos or have the video removed.
A lot of content can be flagged due to users not complying with the full Creative Commons license.
