To make it easier for them, YouTube has announced that after testing its new Copyright Match Tool for the past year it will now start rolling out to creators who have more than 100,000 subscribers thats means when your channel has become an authority channel you can get this feature in your creator’s account.

YouTube Copyright

youtube has shares some main points which we like to share with you. It’s important that you’re the first person to upload your video to YouTube. The time of upload is how we determine who should be shown matches.

  • This tool is intended to find full re-uploads. If you find a clip of your content that you’d like removed, you can always report it via the copyright webform.


  • Once the tool has found a match, you can choose either to do nothing, to get in touch with the other creator, or request that YouTube remove the video. When you request removal you can do so with or without a 7-day delay to allow the uploader to correct the issue themselves. Takedown requests will be reviewed to make sure they comply with YouTube’s copyright policies.


  • Before taking action, we ask that you carefully evaluate each match to confirm that you own the rights to the matched content and ensure that you believe it infringes on your copyright. You should not file a copyright takedown request for content that you do not own exclusively, such as public domain content. You should also consider whether the matched content could be considered fair use or could be subject to some other exceptions to copyright and hence not require permission for reuse.


  • You might be wondering: Isn’t this Content ID? No. The Copyright Match Tool does use similar matching technology used by Content ID, but the Copyright Match Tool is a unique tool designed especially for YouTube creators who have problems with unauthorized re-uploads.
