    So I just saw this. When I went to the video manager of my video, on the right of the edit button I saw "matched third party content". I clicked on it and I saw the following:


    And yes, I actually just ripped a game trailer from YouTube and uploaded it myself.

    Please note the video is in 'unlisted' mode since it was uploaded. I was just planning on making it public and I saw this.

    How should I proceed? Should I acknowledge it or dispute it or just ignore it and make my video public?

    Will the video be deleted when I make it public?

    if you choose to acknowledge it, every thing will be as normal except that you will not be able to monetize it with ads. EA may then choose whether to monetize it with ads or not.

    if you choose to dispute it then.. i don't think this needs any explanation, you just have to prove you are the real owner.

    i used to have a few vids on youtube, and when I ran into this problem from time to time, I used to just delete the video because no ad$ense earnings may be made from it (and also because I wasn't promoting anything else, so no point).

    you may also decide to leave the video up and use it by annotating it to your other videos or including a link in the description to wherever.

    Please note that this is not a copyright notice. It is simply a content-ID match. And from what I can see it says Your video is available and playable, which means you can keep the video without any worries, however you will not be able to monetize it
