    Hi, I just recently received a copyright claim on one of my videos and youtube removed my video. I uploaded it 8 months ago and It has almost 2 million views already and it is just the only popular video in my channel so it really hits me hard when I got a copyright claim. I am very sure it is my original video and I am the original creator of that video so I am wondering why anyone would make a copyright claim.
    So I contacted the claimant through the email provided by youtube. It turns out that he/she is only jealous of my video and he cannot provide me his video link that i supposedly copied when I asked him.
    I submitted a counter notification on youtube insisting that I am the real owner of the video.
    What do you think? Has anyone experienced submitting a counter notification and won?
    Why does youtube remove video without reviewing copyright claim?

    I use youtube to clean my ass. I just spam the shit out of it. There is a chance you can get your video back but it is very low because sometimes, youtube behave like they got no backup. Fuck dem

    Yeah I will contact youtube support if my counter notification got rejected.
    I just have a look at the youtube channel of the claimant and he only have 3 videos and it's all garbage, less than hundred views total, uploaded several weeks ago. And I can't find the video that i supposedly copied.
    So how in the world I got a copyright claim?

    just a suggestion:

    since you say you uploaded your video about 8 months ago, and he/she has 3 videos uploaded with less than 100 views in total, find that accounts "Joined" date.

    go to their account and click on to the "about" section/tab and it should say "Joined MMM D, YYYY".

    If his/her account was created more recently than your video upload date then mention this when you contact youtube support.

    This is weird, there is no "About" tab on his channel. Maybe it is hidden? There is also no Home Videos Playlists Channels Discussion tabs, only Uploads.

    If you are really the original creator, feel free to counter claim to the last instance. In the last step, they would have to sue you in court and show that to YouTube to back up the claim.

    I had a copyright infringement thing on one of my first videoes. I used music from a company that on their own website is saying it's completely free to use. I just countered with a screenshot of their license details along with a link to them and got the claim lifted-

    Give us the channel name of your channel and the channel that is filing a copyright claim and maybe we can help you.

    Yes I am really the original creator and I am ready if he sue me in court if he got the balls.

    I will not post here the name of his channel because maybe he is a member here. I can only pm you but don't post here his channel. He only has 2 subscribers so maybe he is really new to youtube. So how come I copied his video if his channel doesn't even exist yet the time I posted my video.

    Edit: Can't pm anybody

    Keep trying bud Youtube really does not helps much in this kind of situation but you should not lose hope if the video is created by you.

    Contact to the Support, if you are the real owner, hope you will win.

    But I was a Victim. I got deleted my video.

    Some Silly Marketers are doing this, they Flag Videos and SPAM. They can't work but they Ruin Quality Works.

    I just got an email from the claimant. He wants me to pay him $20 to retract the claim. lol
    It just shows he is spamming the copyright.
    How do I contact youtube? I submitted a counter notification but got rejected 2x because it says I did not give my full information but I did give my full information.

    Pay the $20 and be done with it?

    If your appeal got rejected twice you were not careful enough in providing good information... now the 420 might be your best luck.
