    Hello! I have gaming channel and sometimes it's a problem to find good royalty free music. But I found that some big channels ( 50-100k subs) with the similar theme use very popular music like Two steps from hell, Epic Score, etc. I'm sure that it's copyrighted. I contact with one of this channels and he wrote me that "contentID system, when you are connected to media network, works a little different than when you are without partnership".
    I tested it. Uploaded video with Two steps from hell and X Ray Dog songs on two channels, first with partnership, second - without. And 3rd party matched warning was only on the channel without connection to medianetwork! How it could be?
    I am confused about it, because channel with over 100k subs use many famous songs and have no warnings or strikes. I will not post any link for it, but believe me, its true!
    On my own channel are few videos with same songs, but there are also commentary and game sounds, so I thought this is the reason why I have no matched contentID.

    So what can you say? Is it true that medianetwork helps to use such music in your videos? Is it possible to receive strike for the things which I wrote above?

    The big channel who used the music probably had a license to do so. As for your channel, you probably just haven't been hit yet because 1. they don't care and they will let you use it or 2. they haven't found the video yet and when they do, they will take it down.

    Believe me when I say this; DO NOT put all your eggs in one basket. If you build a channel and are using copyrighted material, it will eventually catch up with you and all you worked for will be taken away from you just like that. Use unique content or if you're going to use copyrighted material, then spread it out over several channels.
