Using music on YouTube videos

So I've licensed a song here on Abobe in order to use on one of my YouTube language learning videos, and right away YouTube flagged it with a Copyright Claim. Now I understand that I don't own the song, but that mean that at some point I won't be able to monetize my video once my channel does become eligible for monetization?

thank you.

I moved your post over from the poorly named "Using the Community" forum, which is for getting help using this forum system, to a better forum.


I hope this helps. Best of luck to you.

I suppose you read the licensing terms and you may use the song on social media... (I did not read the specifics for music and sound...). Unfortunately this is a Youtube problem and not an Adobe problem, except if the song licensed has a (c) issue. You need to contact Youtube and prove that you licensed the music correctly.

 

(Disclaimer: As always with licensing, this is my interpretation of the rules. I think they are correct and advice is based reading and interpreting the license terms and on fair use for both the buyer and the artist/stock company, but I can not rule out that my interpretation is wrong. I'm not an Adobe employee)
