    If a library has your music on a non-exclusive basis and it puts your music into Content ID it is violating YouTube’s terms of service.

    Here’s the relevant language:

    “Copyright owners must be able to provide evidence of the copyrighted content for which they control exclusive rights…

    ….Copyright owners must have the exclusive rights to the material that is evaluated. Common examples of items that may not be exclusive to individuals include:

    ….music or video that was licensed, but without exclusivity…”

    The non-non-exclusive libraries entering your music into Content ID are not the copyright owner and they do not have exclusive rights to your music.

    You’re 100% correct Michael. These companies need to pay attention to what they’re doing, follow YouTube guidelines and act responsibly with our assets. Instead of telling us “oh, that wasn’t supposed to happen” they need to get their act together and not let it happen in the first place. Composesr do not need to waste their time fixing libraries mistakes.
