Remove Claimed Content From A Video

YouTube does not allow videos with copyright claims to be uploaded on its platform. Though it seems unnecessary, alerting copyright claims before uploading the video avoids future problems. There can be limitations on where your video can be viewed or if it can be made monetizable if it makes a Content ID claim. You can take out the claimed content without uploading a new video to get rid of the claim and the corresponding restrictions.

You can clear the copyright claim in your video in three ways. If your video itself has claimed content then you can trim out the claimed portion of the video and upload it. If the audio of your video has copyright claims, then you can either replace the audio or mute it. You can choose any song of your interest, for replacement, from the Youtube Library. If you wish to mute, you can either mute the claimed audio or the whole audio.
