Why license for Vimeo?
Vimeo is the biggest ad-free video platform with over 70 million members and 715 million monthly views. If you’re a serious filmmaker this rich video platform is the place to be.
Vimeo Copyright Claims
When Vimeo removes a video in your account in response to a DMCA takedown notice, Vimeo records a “copyright strike” against your account.
The best way to avoid claims of copyright infringement is to be extremely careful with the videos you upload. Make sure that they do not include any material that you don’t have all the necessary rights and permissions for, including any applicable music licenses.
Licensing for Vimeo
I’m sure you’ve heard that you can’t use copyrighted music in your video content without getting slapped with a copyright claim. Unless you get permission of course, and yet it’s almost impossible to obtain the necessary permission. Well, not anymore! At Lickd, our licenses allow you add music to your video without any copyright issues. We’ve negotiated with the music industry to get you legal permission to use music from real artists like Charlie Puth, Megan Thee Stallion, David Guetta, Dua Lipa, Sia and many more.
Handling Copyright Claims
If your video does get a copyright claim, your End User Agreement will provide proof that you have the legal right to use the music on Vimeo. If you are given the opportunity you should dispute the copyright claim using your End User Agreement and let us know so we can coordinate with the record label as well.
Vimeo also has some advice here on filing a dispute/counterclaim.
