    UPDATE (as taken from my twitter)

    Things are a bit muddy.
    - I do have written permission from the artist to use the claimed song.
    - However; the song uses a sample that has been picked up by Warners content ID bot. So I am being claimed for a sample, not the song.

    I'm still hoping we can resolve this.
    And take this as a lesson from me:
    Not only should you ensure you have complete rights to the music you are using for your videos, but also ensure that you ask about any samples that have been used. Otherwise you could end up in this situation (And you wouldn't want that).
    Will do a video on Tuesday explaining. I am taking a day off tomorrow!

      You forgot to remove, but keep it still there. It's not copyright claimed.

      Lesson learned; don't use music from shady artist that jack samples and allow you to unknowingly put your livelihood at risk. For something as stupid as an intro make it yourself. It's an intro, it can seriously be the sound of your front door opening or some corny baseline and add the same value as a professionally produced and licensed song would - none.

      It doesn't matter if it samples another work. If it varies by at least 15% of the original work sample, than it is a derivative work, and not their copyrighted work.

    I had a Content ID claim for a track that I downloaded from the RUclip audio library! When I e-mailed RUclip anout it, I received a terse reply basically saying hard luck. I don't use music at all in my videos now. Fortunately, the subject matter of my videos makes avoiding music easy, but I can see that this would be extremely difficult for other channels.

    It should be innocent until proven guilty and if the "striker" should have a point system as well, if they falsely claim something they get a strike. Three strikes and they pay a fine or something.

    They hire teams of people to initiate manual copyright claims. You can search online right now and find one paying $20 an hour or more and you work from home. The best defense to keep up is to hire your own counter claim team or hope RUclip re-evaluates this issue.,IL?jid=DQa1b47c7d5f59291606d3a3b3da38ad95&

    While this doesn't really identify what is going on with your particular issue, it does show the scope of the problem. Go to this website for SoundExchange.!/search?artistName=Warner%20Chappel&tab=search&showReleases=0&start=0&number=100

    Warner Chappell has an ISRC number registered with SoundExchange on music they are claiming that they hold for royalties.

    OK there is one way you can procede. It is messy but means you will keep your monetisation. This will take a while to do. Use the seek and delete tool for the music clips in question on each vid. the claim is then made null and you regain monetisation. All the best.

    RUclip is focusing on the companies and on ads rather than the people who make videos that ad provides and companies use to get their name out their. Right now youtube is ignoring the people who keep them in business!
    RUclip Get Your Head Out Of Your A$$ And Focus On The People who allow you to GET INCOME!!!!

    This is part of why I haven't uploaded to RUclip. I have concerns that I'll suddenly have strikes or something placed on me, even though I'd be under fair use. I actually do believe I had a claim placed on me at some point though I hadn't done anything wrong. There are RUcliprs who are basically being bullied by big companies. I don't have the time, money, or patience for that. I might look around for another platform. The system is broken and just stupid.

    I wish you the best of luck with all this Mumbo. I'm sorry about this man.
