YouTube now tells you what happens when you upload copyrighted music

For a number of years now, YouTube has used its Content ID service to automatically scan for copyrighted tracks and remove them.Sometimes, it’s unclear why a video is taken down or muted, though, so YouTube will now warns creators about will happen if they upload a video with a copyrighted song.

For example, if you wanted to upload a video featuring Charli XCX’s song “Boom Clap,” YouTube will warn you that it will show ads for the artist on your video, where it will be viewable and that copyright holders can ask for it to be removed anytime.

Would  be interesting to see the  how it will impact their ad revenue as there are talking this step which would certainly be much welcomed by artists
