    EXCEPTIONS

    1) You will be claimed if you don’t PROPERLY GIVE CREDIT to our music.

    Solution: Properly add credits to the description of your video. Then dispute the video by writing: “I have properly added the missing credits (Artist Name - Song Name) to my video.”

    2) You will be claimed if the video ALREADY HAVE MULTIPLE CLAIMS by other companies.

    Why do we do this? If you have 1 claim or more than 1 claim on your video, you no longer can monetize your video. The 3rd party claimant will take all the revenue which makes no sense since they are also taking a % of Smokinkat share.

    Solution: Remove the other claims first. Then dispute the video by writing: “Smokinkat Records is the only claim left on this video. Please remove the claim.”
