Conditions for maintaining your YouTube channel in Revelator's MCN

  • IMPORTANT: You are required to not receive any valid strike across all your linked channels. Receiving even 1 valid strike (meaning that the strike cannot be removed) will be cause for your channel to be unlinked from Revelator's MCN. Furthermore, if you have more than 1 channel linked to Revelator, note that Revelator will unlink all your channels if you receive more than 1 strike across all your channels in any 90-day period. Note that retracted strikes will not count against your account. We recommend that you read our article on how to avoid YouTube copyright strikes. 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);
    • Comment on another channel (as your Channel);
    • Create a community post
