YouTube has made manual changes to the Content ID application policy. Now, copyright holders will not be able to use this feature to monetize audio with short duration and inadvertently used audio.
Previously, copyright holders could claim rights to very short excerpts, as a result of which the entire income from the video passed to them. Now YouTube has decided to eliminate this injustice.
At the same time, the update concerned only manual filing of applications. Content ID will continue to automatically tag the video as before.
In addition, copyright holders will also have the opportunity to prohibit monetization of their materials or block copyright infringing content.
The new rules will take effect in mid-September. They will apply to all applications submitted manually.
