Why am i seeing "Matched third party content" on YouTube after I upload my new video?
The Artist, whom you've purchased the Element from via our platform, had registered himself with companies that helped protect and manage his content. This is to protect their content from improper usage.
When an Artist register their content with such companies, their content gets fingerprinted and goes into the Content ID database. YouTube will then run this database across videos that are submitted to them and sent out a notification if they found a match in their database.
For more information about YouTube Content ID, you can visit the offical Youtube page here.
