Vimeo has joined YouTube and SoundCloud in the protection of music copyright owner rights. Of course this means that sometimes you’ll get copyright notifications when trying to upload your own content.
With Vimeo, these matches are being made via Audible Magic, an automated content recognition service to which we send your music for fingerprinting.
If you are served a copyright violation alert, Vimeo has made it very easy to appeal the match and clear your upload: simply select “Review Your Options” and when asked to pick a reason, choose the one that states you have permission to upload.
Your video will go live and be sharable and embeddable immediately. Appeals are usually treated quickly, and you can rest assured that Vimeo will continue to protect your rights painlessly and professionally.
