As YouTube checks uploaded content for copyright-protected material, it is possible to receive a Content ID claim for the music in your slideshow video. The music in SmartSlides is fully licensed, so this claim can be disputed. 

Keep in mind that although monetization is possible, it will only be allowed if the video is used to promote your services (vs. an ad or another brand). If the video is monetized for other purposes and a claim is made, it cannot be disputed. To play it safe, we can recommend uploading slideshows to YouTube without monetizing the videos to prevent any issues.

Note: If you receive a claim for your uploaded slideshow video and need any help, or additional information, please send us an email to support@smartslides.com - we’d love to help!
