All about Copyright Strikes

As a YouTuber, you probably know what copyright strikes are and how they affect your channel. But just in case you've forgotten, here's some basic info:

  1. If you receive 1 copyright strike, and you acknowledge the strike and complete Copyright School, your strike should be removed after 6 months.
  2. If you receive a second copyright strike before your first strike has expired, your 6 month timer will reset! This means you have to wait 6 months all over again for one of your strikes to expired, and then another 6 months for the remaining strike to expire
  3. If you receive a third strike while you have 2 existing strikes on your channel, your account will be terminated.

Please back up your videos just in case you lose your channel. If your account is terminated and you learned from your mistakes and want to start a fresh channel without any copyright content, we would be more than happy to partner you again as long as you do not violate any of YouTube's Terms of Use. 

Please be aware that we are not able to remove any copyright strikes from your channel. We encourage all partners to refrain from uploading copyright material. If you're unsure about uploading content, chances are, you shouldn't be uploading that content. Be safe!
