    Exempt YouTube channels from Content ID claims

    To avoid generating claims against YouTube creators that have purchased a music track on MotionElements and rightfully use these tracks, the contributor that owns the Content ID must allow the use of the purchased track by specific channels. This can be done by adding channels to Allowlist.

    How to Add channels to Allowlist?

    1. Sign in to Studio Content Manager.
    2. From the left menu, select Allowlist.
    3. In the top-right corner, click ADD CHANNELS.
    4. Enter a channel ID or a URL. The channel ID is the 24 character alphanumeric string that starts with 'UC' in the channel URL.
    5. To add more than one channel at once, paste a comma-separated list of channel IDs into the text box.
    6. Click ADD.
