Kirsten Lisa's curator insight, August 18, 10:44 PM

Content ID allows the rights of owners "to identify their work, and decide what action to take".  Research says that "2% of video content is infringement",  and are not completely authorized.

Felicia McGee's curator insight, August 20, 3:43 AM

Even though YouTube Content ID System solved 98% of copyright claims, it stills not enough for the music industry to claim copyright infringement on artists’ music video. YouTube stated that when a video is removed it is reloaded by many of its users, that there are more content on YouTube beside music, and that they have paid more than $3 billion to the music industry. And Content ID is responsible for almost 50% of the music industry’s revenue.
