CollabDRM has an obligation to protect the rights of our content partners including hundreds of the top social media creators and many of the world's largest UGC libraries. If you believe your video mistakenly received a Collab copyright claim, please get in touch so that we can review the claim.
Does your use illustrate and support an original point? Is a reasonable amount used to get the point across? Is the connection clear between the point that is being made and the content being used? Is the use a replacement for viewing the whole original work? Is there significant transformation (ie criticism, poking fun, changing purpose or character of use)? These are the questions that are considered by Collab's rights management team prior to placing a copyright claim on behalf of one of our clients.
No. Your video does not need to be taken down. However, you will not be able to continue earning revenue on the video after receiving a claim or multiple claims because the revenue will be redirected to the respective content owners.
Dispute the claim using YouTube's dispute process. Every disputed claim will be reviewed by a member of our rights management team. Only dispute a claim if you're confident you have the rights to use all the content in your video.
Our job is to help creators control their content, not to help infringers avoid claims. If you have a legitimate license to content in your video, please share that along with time stamps in your dispute.
Yes. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in licensing content for use in your videos or becoming a CollabDRM syndication partner.
