Content ID is a digital fingerprinting system developed by Google which is used to easily identify and manage copyrighted content on YouTube.
Videos uploaded to YouTube are compared against audio and video files registered with Content ID by content owners, looking for any matches.
- 1. Beats that are of free use
- 2. Mashups, "best of" s, compilations, remixes of other songs
- 3. Unlicensed music
- 4. Licensed music, but without exclusivity
- 5. Recordings of performances (including concerts, events, speeches, shows).
If YouTube Content ID is accepted & added, Indiefy protects and monetizes music on YouTube via Content ID, which matches the user's content with each upload on YouTube.
