Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Hi, I'm Josh, here to answer your copyright questions. 'I have a Content ID claim on my video. What steps can I take?' If you receive a Content ID claim, you can choose to… do nothing. If you agree with the claim, you can just move on. You can always change your mind later if you disagree with a claim. Dispute the claim. If you have the required rights to use the copyright-protected content in your video or if you think the system somehow misidentified your video you can dispute the claim. You can also choose to remove or replace the claimed content from your video without having to upload a new video with the following options. Mute the sound. If you get a claim for a piece of music in your video you may be able to mute the entire claimed segment. Mute the song. If your video has matched a copyright owner's music through Content ID you'll have the option to mute just the claimed song while keeping other audio, like you talking, intact. Note that this option isn't available for all Content ID claims but when it is available, you'll see it as an option within the video copyright info page. Replace the song. If you don't want to mute the audio entirely you can instead swap out your audio track with one of our free songs from the YouTube Audio Library. Trim out the content. You can trim out the claimed content from your video using the YouTube editor without having to edit and upload a new video. All of these steps can be done from within YouTube Studio.
