If you receive a copyright complaint, this means that your video from YouTube has been removed because a copyright owner has submitted a complete and valid legal request for removal from us. When a copyright owner officially reports to us that you do not have permission to post the content on the site, we will remove your upload to comply with copyright law.
By the way, videos can be removed for a variety of reasons, not just because of copyright infringement. In addition, Content ID claims do not lead to a warning.
Removing a video with a warning will not resolve the issue.
Everyone is making mistakes. Take a copyright notice seriously. This can affect your ability to monetize. If you delete a live stream or an archived live stream because of a copyright complaint, you do not have access to live streaming for 90 days.
