YouTube Content ID: Angry Joe posts video update, confirms that claims are being resolved

YouTuber Angry Joe has posted a video update on the 63 Content ID strikes slapped on his videos. It follows on the implementation of YouTube’s new copyright measures, which saw a run of third-party firms flagging videos they often had nothing to do with.

We have Joe’s original response video and an in-depth article full of updates on the YouTube Content ID issue. Hit the link to see how it unfolded.

In the new clip above, Joe explains that he managed to get the Content ID claims written off by simply disputing them. If the complaining third-party didn’t follow up after that point, the claim would be automatically released. Using this method, he has now successfully whittled his claim list down from around 63 to 66 claims, and now has around 23 remaining.

He added that some companies happily removed Content ID claims after Joe got in touch with them, and explained that most of the companies had nothing to do with the content of his videos to begin with. Others were not so understanding, and Joe has now vowed to boycott the firms as a result.

Among the companies releasing claims, Joe name-dropped EA, Capcom, Namco Bandai and others from around the industry.
