Hello, i already wrote that as a comment in the music page, but i don't think it's in the right place sorry, so i prefer to write it here.

I received a claim from [Merlin] RecordJet for Sascha Ende's title "Hold on" on my youtube video which is scheduled for next week, so not yet online. I do not know if this is a mistake or a willful usurpation of your title. I have contested the claim and expect a response within 30 days. I sent the contestant this attribution, as I put it in my video description: Hold On by Sascha Ende / Link: filmmusic.io/song/338-hold-on /License: creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/.

I don't know if I did it right, and you may have to know how to do it. The title I am told to have used is: "Hold On - Michael Davies [feat. Christian Bakotessa]"

If you want I have screenshots of the claim. Looking around I saw that other videos you credited have the same problem as me, with the attribution to "Michael Davis". The link to the title of Michael Davis:


I am at your disposal if you have any questions, best regards, Le Mathou.

I reported this to Recordjet (again).

Michael Davies is an artist who used my instrumental. He is not allowed to claim this exclusive rights with Content ID.

I hope that we will finally be able to clarify this without having to call in a lawyer.

In the meantime, I recommend that you file an objection on Youtube and indicate the song in the comment field and point out that this claim is not legitimate: filmmusic.io/song/338-hold-on

Thanks for your quick answer. I will do what you advised me. I have already contested the claim, but this contestation is addressed to Recordjet because youtube considers that they have the rights, maybe that will be enough. But I will try to contact youtube directly reporting the problem.

Michael Davies is using www.recordjet.com - they do not check the rights.

But i gave this to my lawyer now.

I got an answer from recordjet, they removed the song from CID now. Answer was:

"I have now looked into the YouTube content management system. The Content ID for "Michael Davies [feat. Christian Bakotessa] - Hold On" is now removed. It may still take a few days until this is valid for the whole YouTube interface."
