When I Googled "Kontor New Media" another unfortunate YouTube had his videos containing sounds from a bird nest identified as infringing on copyright belonging to Kontor New Media.
I don't think the audio recognition YouTube uses work too well for non-musical audio.
The mail also "kindly" reminds me that I don't have to do anything and this is because Kontor New Media now earns on adverts that appear in my video. I'm not happy with this, of course, so what I did in an attempt to rectify this was to take the following actions:
- Clicked on the URL in the mail bringing me to the Content ID Matches section at YouTube
- Click on the Matched third party content. text hyperlink next to the video (note: difficult to see that it's a clickable link) - I highlighted it in yellow below.
- Follow the instructions to file a dispute that the video was misidentified using the alternative: 1. This video does not feature the third-party copyrighted material at issue. My video was misidentified as containing this material.
Not sure what to expect in terms of how long I have to wait - but I'll update this post once the issue has been resolved.
