Conditions for maintaining your YouTube channel in ANS Enterprise LLC’s MCN #

  • IMPORTANT: You are required to not receive more than 1 strike per 90-day period across all your linked channels. This means that you can receive no more than 1 strike (per 90-day period starting with the first strike received) regardless of whether you have 1 or 10 channels. Any channel receiving an additional strike will be unlinked. Note that retracted strikes will not count against your account. As a channel manager it is your responsibility to ensure that any rights dispute does not result in a strike. If someone is claiming one of your videos, you must do either of the following:
    • If you own the full rights to the recording: then please issue a DMCA notice against the claiming asset on YouTube’s DMCA page.
    • If you do not own the full rights to the recording: then you must accept the 3rd party’s claim or take down your video so that no strike is applied.
    • If the issue is more complex, then it is your responsibility to reach out to our support to consult us on addressing the issue in order to avoid a strike. Note that this must be done ASAP as YouTube only gives you 7 days after your claims appeal is rejected by the 3rd party to take down the video; thereafter a strike is applied.
  • You must strictly follow all YouTube monetization and community guidelines:
    • You cannot add your track as an intro/outro to a music compilation video in order to claim that video — your track must be part of the compilation
    • You cannot purchase placement of your music in popular 3rd party content (such as popular TV series, news or sports broadcasts, animes and cartoons, etc.). Note that violating this YouTube policy will cause your infringing asset to be permanently removed from CID and all your YouTube CID royalties to be withheld.
  • You must perform at least 2 of the following actions per month:
    • Upload a provider video and make it public;
    • Perform a live stream;
    • Post a reel;
    • Create a playlist;
    • Comment on your own channel (as your Channel);
