Copyright holders will no longer be able to take away revenue from YouTube creators using short music clips

Before I get to know the relevant background: The Content ID system allows copyright holders to find matches between their content and the audio or video of various YouTube video clips. If a matching content is found then the copyright holder can have several options to deal with: ignore it (which happens rarely), mute any audio that matches its music, prevent the entire video from being seen, run, and run. (or continue to run) the ads in the video and earn revenue.

Obviously this is a controversial system. Many YouTube users are deducted for their content because they contain a few seconds for the copyright owner. In addition, in some cases, some users have received the copyright statement of the Contect ID because they sang or said some songs.

So how does YouTube solve this problem? -- This company will prohibit copyright owners from using the Manual Claim Contect ID tool to monetize entire videos that contain "very short" or "unintentionally" music. For example, a video blogger recorded a video in a store, and the background music is exactly what the copyright holder said.

However, this move is mixed. Although copyright owners can no longer monetize very short videos, they can still choose to block monetization or even block anyone from watching videos.

YouTube is also aware of this possibility. “We acknowledge that these changes may lead to more content being blocked in the short term, but we believe that this is an important step towards achieving the right balance in the long run.”

And as long as this strategy is effective, only time will give an answer.
