In April, YouTube announced a long-awaited change to its Content ID policy, whereby videos under copyright dispute would still be able to rack up ad revenues. Today, that feature is live for all creators, the company said in a blog post.

“If both you and the Content ID claimant want to monetize your video, we will continue to run ads against it and hold those funds separately while the dispute is resolved,” writes Content ID product manager David Rosenstein. Previously, disputed videos generated no income whatsoever — which was especially costly for creators who felt it put too much power in the hands of claimants and made them vulnerable to incorrect claims.

Rosenstein explains that most copyright disputes occur within five days after an original claim has been made, and the company’s new system has been designed accordingly. For disputes filed within the first five days after receiving a claim, YouTube will hold all revenue from the day the claim was originally filed. For disputes filed after this five-day window, YouTube will hold all revenue from the day the dispute was made.
