How does YouTube handle valid infringement notifications from copyright owners?

  • Assigns a badge to the uploader’s channel home page to identify them as an abusive actor.
  • On a quarterly basis, publishes and shares a list of accounts that have been uploading copyrighted material.
  • Removes the video from the site and issues a copyright strike to the uploader.
  • Immediately shares information about the case with local law enforcement agencies for prosecution.
