How to dispute a copyright claim on YouTube

Late in October, I received an email from YouTube saying that a video I’d uploaded years ago was being hidden due to a copyright dispute with a rights-holder. That video was the first I’d created using iMovie for iOS, which used the theme “Modern.” That theme had the Phoenix song “1901” for a while.

Did I need to take the video down? Of course not: the music was provided by Apple. But I did need to dispute the claim. Suspecting that other people probably got the same message, I wrote up a short how-to for iMore that explains the process of filing the dispute: How to dispute a copyright claim on YouTube.

(It was published on November 6, but I missed it at the time.)
