This is what you should do:

Step 1:

Contest the claim and do not remove your video. If you purchased our music you are allowed to use it in your video productions.

Step 2:

When asked for a reason from YouTube check: “I have a license or written permission from the proper rights holder to use this material”

Step 3:

When you buy a track from us you are sent a full licence agreement in PDF format. Attach this to your claim and put our website link in your reply. You are also sent a receipt of purchase from us. You can also attached this and send to YouTube for full evidence of purchase. This will show YouTube that you have legally obtained your music from us.

Step 4:
