Hi, i have donated, and used this audio content on a youtube video, but youtube has flagged up the audio with a copyright claim via believe music. can this be resolved? thank you for any help and apologies if i am in error.
This sound is mine and is copyright free. Youtube shouldn't bother you ... - Joseph SARDIN

Hi joseph, i queried with youtube about the use of the birdsong in the video, sadly youtube have informed me that the claim has been upheld by a company called 'believe music', and therefore, i've had to have part of the birdsong edited out of the video. i don't know if it's because i'm in the uk, and the use is only permitted in certain territories (maybe it's a stupid brexit thing). i thought you should know about this. all the best, caroline
Thank you. But it shouldn't be blocked ... - Joseph SARDIN
