5. Finally click on the line that says here at the end of the message.

You will then be taken to a page of copyright notices. If you see any video here simply go about rectifying the claims per video as there will be a note beside each video identifying whats wrong such as: Includes copyrighted content. You can simply click on the notice of whats wrong and then fix the issue by editing or taking down the video. Issues may include stuff like Audio tracks matching third party content that you do not have the rights to or Images or video footage included in your video that you do not own.

You will have to either edit the video changing out or swapping out the audio or find a way to fix the issues and the strikes will be removed from your account making you once again in good standing and not risking your channel being taken down with all your hard work.
