YouTube Content ID Service that has Manual Claming

Hi guys,

I was wondering if any of you knew of a Content ID service like Identifyy, RouteNote etc. that uses YouTube’s manual claiming feature? I don’t want to deal with the hassle of waiting for the services to sweep and find videos that I know have our music on, and have to deal with the hassle of potential counter-claims from people who swear their usage falls under fair use. I’d like to be in control of the claiming process. Is there any service that does this?

You can manually request the services to claim any video (at least AdRev), but you cannot actually place the claim yourself. That’s why those companies exist.

If you happen to be a big YouTuber or a big record label you could partner up with YouTube directly, but otherwise, as a small indie, no.
