Licensing for Dailymotion
Most of our licences allow you to upload your video to any online video platform.
Where a song isn't available for a certain platform we will flag it during the checkout process. If you have a licence and are unsure where you can use it, you can always check your End User Agreement or get in-touch with us.
Dailymotion Copyright Claims
In the case of Dailymotion we cannot guarantee your video won't get a copyright claim or be taken down.
According to Dailymotion's help centre they work with an automated system similar to YouTube's Content ID. More information can be found here; https://faq.dailymotion.com/hc/en-us/articles/203921173
From our initial tests we didn't see any copyright claims come through on a small portion of our music catalogue which is an encouraging sign. As always we recommend you include the Lickd licensing information in the video's description. This encourages any rights holders who might be looking for copyrighted content to check before manually filing a copyright claim with Dailymotion.
Handling Copyright Claims
If your video does get a copyright claim your End User Agreement will provide legal proof that you have the legal right to use the song on Dailymotion. If you are given the opportunity you should dispute the copyright claim using your End User Agreement and let us know so we can co-ordinate with the record label also.
