No it doesn’t. The music industry pays people to do nothing other than watch youtube videos & pick out the copyrighted material & then file a claim. There are numerous videos on YT explaining the problems brought on by youtubers who could not figure out a way around it. Even the reaction channels are required to pause every so many seconds or their vid will receive a copyright claim. IF they contest the claim, YT gives them the option of redoing the vid & blocking the music being claimed or taking the vid down. I watch a lot of reaction vids & I’ve heard commented frequently that Sony is the toughest company to deal with.

People have received copyright claims on their own, written, composed and performed, music, and the process is completely automated, so you will receive a strike. Count on it.

Use music that you created. Period.

No more so than buying a CD gives you a license to use that music in a movie.

It’s OK if I buy a song from iTunes and play it for my friends at my house during a party.

It’s too bad that I can’t video my friends having fun with the music that I paid for and share it with my friends on YouTube. I never make a dime on my greater than 100 YouTube videos.

I’ve had numerous copyright claims on my YouTube videos. But nothing ever comes from it.
