YouTube forms team to fight false copyright claims


YouTube has taken the next step in its battle against false copyright infringement alerts by creating a team dedicated to minimizing mistakes.

The move follows cries for help from content creators using the video-sharing website that have had their videos removed in the past due to baseless legal claims.

Speaking about YouTube’s latest plan when it comes to tackling the issue, Spencer from YouTube’s Policy Team has released a statement on the website’s help forum.

According to the website spokesperson, YouTube has been monitoring false video removals very closely and is striving to do even better looking to the future.

Spencer said:

The good news is that the feedback you’ve raised in comments and videos on YouTube and beyond is having an impact. It’s caused us to look closely at our policies and helped us identify areas where we can get better.

It’s led us to create a team dedicated to minimizing mistakes and improving the quality of our actions.”

Revealed in this latest post, YouTube will soon be rolling out a number of new initiatives to help out content creators, strengthening communication between YouTubers themselves and the website’s support team.

Meanwhile, users are being told that YouTube will be increasing transparency into the status of monetization claims, with the website’s makers hoping to get things rolling as quickly as possible.

It’s clear that the YouTube community is growing tired of false copyright claims, so YouTube’s Policy Team will be hoping its latest plan of action turns out to be a brilliant one.
