1. Copyright Claims, What To Do?

What should I do if I get a copyright claim on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram etc?
  • Please appeal the claim, do not remove your content and let them know that you have the right to use our music as a rightful customer.
  • If Facebook or Instagram warns you that your content is muted because you may be using copyrighted content, just click 'Restore Audio'.
  • If YouTube flags your channel for using 'copyrighted content' please click; "I have a license or written permission from the proper rights holder to use this material".
  • When appealing against the claim, send them a link to the page where you found the music that you downloaded from us - www.tnsounddesign.com.
  • You can send a copy of your purchase receipt, this will help to appeal against the claim, and prove your rights to use our music within your project.
  • Please contact us with all of the details about the claim, including all information on those who are claiming ownership to our music. Send us details such as the; track title, composer, name or company name of those who have registered our music. This will help to reduce any future copyright claims.
  • Please send us as much information as possible, it will allow us to remove our music any platform and its registry, as quickly as possible.
We don't upload our music to any registry platforms!
  • We do not register any of our tracks on any platform, this includes; YouTube, Facebook, Instagram etc. So, if you get flagged for copyright, after uploading to platforms such as these, it means that someone is claiming the rights to our music.
  • YouTube, Facebook and Instagram use algorithms to check for copyrighted content, we do not register our music to these platforms. You should have no issues using our music in your projects and uploading to these platforms. However, if you do receive a copyright notice for any of our music used in your project, please let us know. We can then help to remove it from the registry of that platform.
  • We do not register our music to YouTube's 'Content ID' registry. So if you are flagged for copyright on YouTube, then someone is taking false ownership of our music. If this is the case, please contact us with all the details about the claim, along with the track title, composer, name, company etc.
