While YouTube can help make your dreams come true by providing a free platform to share your knowledge, talent, and creativity, it can also be a nightmare if you use content from other creators.

For the past few years, Youtube channels could get copyright strikes, and Youtubers could just wait for Youtube to lift the strike, answering no question.
What Is A Content ID Claim?
According to Google Help, whenever you upload a piece of content to Youtube, it is copyright-protected by default on Youtube; therefore, the algorithm assigns that content a unique ID called a "content ID." If anyone re-uploads your whole or part of the content, the system detects it and auto-generates a content ID claim for the offender.
Secondly, if you are a content creator hosting your content on various platforms, you can also submit your content to YouTube for a content ID. This prevents copies of your content from being re-uploaded without your permission.
