Beware of fake copyright claims by Believe Music on YouTube

It has recently come to our attention that many people have received fake and malicious YouTube copyright claims from Believe Music on their videos over the years. Many have suspected that Believe Music are “copyright trolls” who take advantage of the the YouTube copyright claim system.

We found out that these claims are absolutely true. Believe Music has been taking advantage of YouTube and the easy-to-file copyright claims in order to target unsuspecting YouTube users, gain traffic through their videos, and place advertisements on their videos.

Believe Music copyright claim YouTube

Believe Music is known to file a fake YouTube copyright claim stating that audio on a victim’s video is “monetized by copyright owner.” This means that Believe Music will be able to list whatever song they fraudulently claim has been infringed on the victim’s YouTube video. Believe Music will also be able to display their own YouTube advertisements, make money off the YouTube video, and garnish traffic for heir own YouTube videos off the victim’s YouTube video. This will also restrict the YouTube account user from displaying their own ads on their own videos.

In short, Believe Music is filing fake audio copyright claims on videos. They fraudulently state that the video contains their music and steal website traffic and revenue from the victim.

The Believe Music scam has been going on for many years and there are several ways around it. One way to fight the fake Believe Music copyright claim on YouTube is to “file a dispute.”

  4. yo opino que les viene bien porque les damos publicidad y propaganda y todos los derechos, sólo queremos escuchar música sin más, son unos cabrones porque me destrozan los vídeos alegando entre varios reclamadores que ciertos trozos del video debo silenciarlos, CABRONES

  5. Thanks for writing this article. Hard to believe but BELIEVE MUSIC has copyrighted the”Bokeh Random” video effect provided by FINALCUT PRO!!

  6. These bastards! They put out crap by basically making “songs” that have every free loop and then copyright it. Makes it almost impossible to make music with Logic or GarageBand. How are we going to get rid of these crooks! If you file a dispute it doesn’t go to youtube but straight to them. That will never work.

    I have disputed the same video and song several times. I dispute the claim and they release the claim then a week later they file another claim. This has happened at least 4 times already is there any way to stop this cycle
