YouTube Helps You Avoid Music Copyright Issues

YouTube's Creators page has advice on avoiding copyright issues when you upload a video. Pass this on to your n00b friends that keep uploading copyrighted music in their cat videos.

But until now there was no way to know what would happen if you used a specific track until after you hit upload. Starting today, you can search the YouTube Audio Library to determine how using a particular track in your video will affect it on YouTube, specifically if it will stay live on YouTube or if any restrictions apply. You can uncross those uploading fingers now!
