If you're uploading to a channel other than the one registered to your Lens Distortions membership and want to avoid copyright claims, you'll want to use a License Code for each track in your video.
This is a great solution for client projects or if you manage multiple YouTube channels.
- Go to lensdistortions.com/music/
- Navigate to the track you need a license code for and hover over the [...] more icon (located to the right of the download button.)
- Click the "Generate YouTube License Code" button
- Enter details about your project
- When you upload the video, include the License Code (including the "CODE:" prefix) in your YouTube video description and make sure the video status is set to Public or Unlisted.
- You must include the code(s) in your YouTube video description at the time of upload (before you click the save button on the upload).
- If you forgot to include a License Code at the time of upload, you can generate a code after the fact and dispute the claim. Be sure to include the license code with your dispute (adding it to your video description after you've already uploaded won't clear a claim.)
- Your video must be set to "Public" or "Unlisted" to avoid claims. Video set to premiere later will also automatically clear once they go public.
- You must have an active Lens Distortions membership for the codes to work.
- You don't need to use License Codes if you've registered your YouTube channel
Multiple tracks = multiple codes
Each track used in a project needs its own License Code. When including multiple codes in your video description, put each one on its own line:
Or use a single “CODE: ” prefix and put them on one line separated by commas:
CODE: LD-1111111111, LD-2222222222, LD-3333333333
