Hello

I use creative commons videos and youtube delete them all! Any explanation?

What is the problem with the usage of CC videos?

Thanks.

    The problem with creative commons videos is that if you use them, the owner can still claim a copyright violation and Google can take them down. This happens quite frequently.

    Your best chance to keep them up on your channel is to use these videos and give proper credit to the creator. Don't make them look like you were the one who created it entirely!

      Thanks for your replay Jonathan Henson.

      Can you please tell me how I can give the creator the proper credit to his video?

        Please understand that you have probably done nothing wrong and Google will still take your videos down. That's part of their process.

        With that said, here's what I do to minimize the chance of Google taking the videos down:

        I include a link to the original creator's YT channel and I provide the channel name. I also mention a thank you to the owner for initially creating a piece that I have now made my own on my channel, and for allowing me to provide the valuable video to my subscribers/visitors.

        I think more than anything, video creators hate it when it appears their work has been swiped from them, even though they allowed it to be a creative commons work.
