Home YouTube Content Ownership Assessment A partner hosts a YouTube talk show called “Cat Chat.” One episode consists of the host’s 10-minute interview with a veterinarian, followed by a 5-minute reel of viral cat videos that were uploaded to YouTube by other users. The partner obtained a commercial use license from the uploaders to use their cat videos on “Cat Chat.” The “Cat Chat” host now wishes to use Content ID to monetize clips from the show. The partner should…
- Not upload the video as a reference file at all, because it contains third-party content.
- Not upload the video as a reference file at all, because interview footage is not copyrightable.
- Upload only the 10-minute interview as a reference file, because the partner does not own the viral videos exclusively.
- Upload the entire episode as a reference file, because she has a license to use the viral cat videos.
