    Hello guys, What do you do when your video gets hit by the copyright info?

    Should I deleted the video? I copied a video from CNET and just added an ending to it.

    If it has got hit by copyright info then just take the video down and add a watermark or something. This is then considered a unique video so it should pass Youtubes guidelines.

    But i would take it down asap incase they put an infraction on your account.

    I just deleted my video. But if I watermark the video that will remove the copyright info? Or just making it unique? According to google the video had a match content on CNET. Made me wonder because I saw a someone in youtube copied exactly from CNET and his video is now getting around 8k views. Maybe it's because CNET uploaded the video on youtube also?

    Yeah probably. Just change some things around and watermark it.
