Two partners have a reference overlap. What happens if the second partner to deliver the reference file selects “Assert Exclusive Rights”?
- The first partner will immediately lose claims on the content and should remove the overlapping portion from their reference.
- User videos that match only the excluded portion will be claimed by both partners, but excluded from the other partner’s list of claims.
- User videos that match only the excluded portion will be given to the second partner who selected “Assert Exclusive Rights”.
- The first partner will be asked to review the overlap, and either assert exclusive rights or exclude the overlapping segment from their reference.
