    I was going through lyrics for some songs and found that many people were able to use the copyrighted song with their lyrics. I tried doing the same but my video got blocked worldwide.

    I again downloaded their video and uploaded it and yet same happened. It said Video Blocked Worldwide.

    What is the trick behind using the songs in lyrics without the video getting blocked?

    Check the song first to see if it's allowed.

    Some songs are blocked, some block certain countries, some are not blocked but you cannot earn money. That's the easiest answer.

    Some people make the songs faster, they put them in 1.5x speed, that is how they get away with it, but it doesn't always work. As the user aboce me commented, not all the songs are blocked for copyrights, they have different behaviour from different uploaders

    Networks!!!

    One of the main attractive that Networks offer is having the rights of a lot of copyrighted music, footage and videogames

    Did you just uploaded or monetized it also?
    Yeah they do change the speed of music and other things to get away from it. You have to be creative but its like walking on broken bridge and it can fall down anytime.
