In a blog post on the YouTube Creators blog, Rights Management Product Manager, Thabet Alfshawi announced earlier today that YouTube will be updating its Content ID systems, which are used to detect copyright violations automatically.

Alongside which they will also be launching a new appeals process for users who may be affected by any incorrect copyright take downs, before which, users where left with little to no options.

New appeals will now allow the copyright holder, to either withdraw their takedown notice, or file a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) notification.

But hopefully all this will be avoided with a new set of algorithms to reduce false positives before they happen, alongside the introduction of a manual review process for any video that is likely to create such a false positive.
