Avoid or resolve YouTube copyright strikes

When you use stock media from Descript in your content and publish it to YouTube, that content may be mistakenly flagged by YouTube for copyright claims or strikes. Don't worry — this guide will help you avoid or resolve these instances.

Steps to avoid or resolve copyright strikes

  1. Fill out this form. Submitting the form will notify YouTube that you have the rights to use the stock media commercially; it'll help prevent your videos from mistakenly being flagged for copyright claims or strikes.
  2. You can still fill out the form if YouTube has already flagged your content for copyright. This process will initiate the resolution of your copyright claim.

It's important to remember that the copyright claim resolution might take some time and is dependent on YouTube's review process. Please note that the above steps will not help prevent or resolve copyright strikes resulting from using copyrighted material taken from outside of Descript’s stock media libraries.

My content is still getting flagged

If your content continues to get flagged after filling out the above form, please contact our support team.

Understanding commercial use of stock media

Descript's integrated libraries contain stock audio, video, images, and other media you can add to your content. Some of the media can be used commercially. For more information, please see our terms of service. Understanding YouTube's copyright policy and copyright strikes can also be helpful to creators planning to use published content commercially.
