    Question on Youtube rules

    Recently one of my videos was flagged by Taylor Swift copyright because you can faintly hear her music playing in the background.

    I muted the video and took off monetization, Is this strike 1 against me and is there a 3 strike rule.

    I was at a wedding and recorded people dancing to Michael Jacksons Billie jean. Innocent video. Next thing I know I get a copyright notice violation. They told me the video was removed in the following country. Germany.
    I got a good laugh from it. I don't monetize my videos so there was nothing to worry about.
    Same thing happened recently when I recorded Rachel Platten singing Fight Song. You tube sent me an email stating it was OK to post since it wasn't monetized.

    I was at Carnaval Court one evening and I think 'welcome to the jungle' was in the background. I ended up getting the warning and had no idea what to do. Well, I keep my clips much shorter now and haven't had a problem since but I'm still fearful.

    You'll be fine.
    You can monetize it again since you removed the audio. You can also change the title to something different and upload it anew.
    You'll be fine, don't worry,

    It's just their software scouting around; it's about covering themselves for liability. Happens constantly; they don't judge you to be 'bad' lol
    They just want to keep Legal happy (on both sides).

    I am no expert when it comes to YouTube rules but I think as long as you removed the video and the copyright music, there is no strike to your account. You can check if you are in good standing with YouTube if you log into your account, go to your creator studio, and click on channel (status and features).

    There are two kinds of copyright notices you can get on YouTube.

    ContentID which shows as a "Third Party Content Match" and will display a copyright notices tab on the left in your dashboard. This is simply an automated notification that something in your video is owned by a content registrant somewhere out in the wild blue yonder. It lets you acknowledge or dispute the claim. Depending on the use, disputing it can be done, though I wouldn't for a Taylor Swift song. And acknowledging it simply lets the content owners policy take hold. They can choose to block, monetize or just track the video. However, this particular claim is not a punishment. It's just saying that since someone else owns the material, they get to choose what monetization policy applies, not you. Personally, I take down any content immediately that has a match because I don't like the idea of trusting that the content owner won't punish me later if they change their mind.

    The second flag comes in one of two forms as either a Copyright Strike or a Community Strike. You will receive an email about this and it will actually call the infraction a strike. If you go to your YouTube settings, you'll see that your account is not in good standing and depending on how many strikes you have at any one time, you will lose features (live streaming, unlisted videos, etc.). Each strike lasts for 6 months and if you have 3 strikes open at one time, YouTube closes your channel down permanently (pending appeals). Strikes are a result of a manual DMCA takedown notice that a copyright holder has to submit to YouTube. You can fight them if they happen, but be prepared for a long battle.

    What you had is the former, a Third Party Content Match. If you took the video down, you're totally fine. You probably would have been fine leaving it up, but as I mentioned, I always err on the side of caution. Your channel is in no danger.
