If the claim is not from Epidemic Sound:
If the claim is over the music you used from Epidemic Sound, you should know that Epidemic Sound owns 100% of the legal rights to their music meaning that it’s copyright safe for you as a licensed user. Unfortunately, false claims are a known issue when using any music on YouTube – but on a more positive note, as they have all of their tracks registered in YouTube's Content ID the likelihood is small when using Epidemic Sound music. If you should receive a Content ID claim from a third party when you know that you have the legal right to use it, you can have the claim retracted. Please contact Epidemic Sound with a screenshot of the claim and the URL of your video. They will contact the claimant from their end. Then you can file a dispute and refer to the valid license to use Epidemic Sound music. If you can, add a URL of the track from our library. Learn more about how to dispute claims here. Don't hesitate to contact Epidemic Sound of Freedom! support if you have more questions about YouTube's claiming process.
