What happens to revenue during a dispute or appeal?

  • Monetization during Content ID disputes is enabled when both the video creator and the Content ID claimant want to monetize the video. Throughout the dispute process, we'll hold the revenue separately and, once the dispute is resolved, we'll pay it out to the appropriate party.
  • If for any reason you choose not to monetize your video while it is in dispute, you can disable monetization from the Video Manager section of your Creator Studio

  • Monetization during disputes

    File a dispute within the first 5 days of the claim: In this scenario, we will continue to run ads and hold all revenue that the video earned while the claimant reviews your dispute.
    File a dispute after the first 5 days after a claim is made: We will hold revenue from the date the dispute is made.
    Do nothing, allow claim to exist on your video: After 5 days any held revenue will be released to the claimant. You can still dispute at any time.
