Submit a copyright takedown notice
If your copyright-protected work was posted on ROYNNTube without authorization, you may submit a copyright infringement notification. Be sure to consider whether fair use, fair dealing, or a similar exception to copyright applies before you submit. These requests should be sent by the copyright owner or an agent authorized to act on the owner’s behalf.
The fastest and simplest way to submit a copyright takedown notice is through our webform. We recommend using a computer for the easiest method.
The name you enter as copyright owner will be published on YouTube in place of the turned off content. If you can give us a valid legal alternative, such as a company name or the name of an authorized representative, we'll review and apply it if appropriate. The name will become part of the public record of your request, along with your description of the work(s) allegedly infringed. All other information, including your full legal name and email, are part of the full takedown notice, which may be given to the uploader.
If you choose to submit a copyright takedown request, remember that you're starting a legal process.
Do not make false claims. Misuse of this process may result in the suspension of your account or other legal consequences.

Copyright counter notification basics
Copyright-protected content may be taken down from YouTube if it's been uploaded without the copyright owner's authorization. A counter notification is a legal request for YouTube to reinstate a video that was removed for alleged copyright infringement.
When is a counter notification
You can only pursue a counter notice when a video that you uploaded was disabled due to a mistake or misidentification of the content. This includes fair use. It should not be pursued under any other circumstances.
If your video was disabled for copyright but does not fit the criteria above, you should not pursue a counter notice. Instead, you can wait for your copyright strike to expire, usually after 90 days. You may also want to reach out to the copyright owner directly to get a retraction of the copyright infringement.
How to pursue a counter notice
You can pursue a counter notification in your Video Manager and, if it is complete and valid, YouTube will forward it to the claimant. Counter notifications must be submitted by the video’s original uploader or an agent authorized to act on their behalf, such as an attorney.
Sign in to YouTube Studio.
From the left menu, select Videos.
Click on Copyright claim next to the respective video under the Monetization column if available. Otherwise, you’ll see this option under the Visibility column.
Click on View Copyright claim details.
This will take you to the Video Copyright Info page where you can see information about the takedown.
Click Submit counter notification under SELECT ACTION.

When we forward the counter notice, we will include the full text of the counter notice, including any personal information you provide. By submitting a counter notification, you consent to sharing your information with the claimant. We will not forward the counter notification to any party other than the original claimant. The claimant may use this information to file a lawsuit against you in order to keep the content from being restored to YouTube.
After we process your counter notification by forwarding it to the claimant, the claimant has 10 business days to give us evidence that they've initiated a court action to keep the content down. This time period is a requirement of copyright law, so please be patient.
If your account has been suspended for multiple copyright violations, the counter notification webform will be inaccessible. If appropriate, you may submit a free-form counter notification.
