Content ID Protection
YouTube have their own Content ID system and there are also other measures you can take

What is Content ID?

Content ID is a unique ID or basically an algorithm developed by google which act as a fingerprint for the users. It is maintained in google in order to find out and manage copyright contents. So in layman terms we can say that getting content ID is just like owning a patent.

Content ID gives the holder the choice to take down or monetize the similar content present in YouTube. The system is implemented in 2007 for reducing the disputes occurring in the name of copyright issues by Google CEO Eric Schmidt.

The system was primely named as Video Identifier and later renamed as Content ID. In this post we are about to discuss the importance of content ID for YouTubers.

How Does it Work?

As mentioned above Content ID helps the ID holder to track and takedown plagiarised content from YouTube. What content ID does is that it creates an ID file to store files for the ID holders and it will be created as patented content. Whenever a similar video or audio file is uploaded in YouTube the content will be flagged as copyright violated and enable the content owner to take down the video. Not everyone can own a Content ID.

Uploaders who meet specific criteria will be provided with the ID. In order to get a Content ID the applicant should provide enough evidence to prove that he posses all the rights over the content and is exclusively unique. If your application is accepted for getting a Content ID one should complete an agreement and it's mandatory to provide your geographical location.

Why is it Important for YouTubers?
As a YouTuber you should get a Content ID because of various reasons. Content ID enables you to identify your video anywhere on YouTube. You can easily find out a copy of your work, if any in are on YouTube.

By doing so you can either take down the entire video, make it a blacklist or you can add advertisement into it and monetize from that video. The decision is in the ID owners hand whether to take down, monetize or track the video.

As mentioned above it works on an algorithm which checks for any copy by matching your content against all the audios and visuals on YouTube.

If any splitting happens naturally, it affects your earnings. This is the reason why it is recommended that every YouTubers should own a content ID.

... So Always Remember
When it comes to protecting yourself and your creative content on YouTube, then it really is fair to say that Content ID is one of the best steps that has ever been introduced by YouTube in order to bring down the amount of disputes which continue to occur on a regular basis in the name of plagiarism. It gives you, the ID owner, the absolute true power over the intellectual content which has been made by you. Now, thanks to this fantastic addition by YouTube, the ID owner can easily track their content and if any copy of their work is identified the ID owner can take down or monetize from the copied work.

Be sure to keep on top of all of your unique, created content which solely belongs to you and remember to make sure that you do not let anyone else take advantage of your work without your permission. If you find that someone has been using your content and they have not spoken to you about it first, then now is the time to put that right and either put in a dispute to have them take it down or, alternatively have their work monetized for you.
