We are NexTone Inc., a company that operates a music copyright society specializing in copyright administration and digital distribution services. One of our functions is to administer sound recording rights on the YouTube platform.
Please refer to the following website in regards to NexTone’s digital distribution and administration services on the YouTube platform.
The notice you received is an automated message from YouTube that is sent to the uploader when a sound recording or multiple sound recordings administered by NexTone is/are identified in an uploaded video.
We have filed a copyright infringement claim, but please note that you are not required to take any action, such as deleting the video or setting it to private mode. Videos that were previously without ads will appear with ads from now on. A portion of such ad revenue will be paid out as royalties to each applicable rights holder (artist, sound recording owner), and will lead to and encourage the creation of new musical works.
If you believe you are not using any sound recordings administered by NexTone, please kindly file your counter notification in accordance with YouTube’s guidelines.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
