I have created a YouTube channel two months ago. The Name of my channel is "FreeToUse Public Domain" And I always upload Public Domain Full Movies All Movies Release dates before 1956 according to indian law Indian Copyright Law copyright in cinematograph films Section 26 Indian Copyright Act, 1957, provides very specific terms of duration for which copyright exists. Once the term of copyright expires, content enters the public domain Section 13(4) in the Copyright Act, 1957 TERM OF COPYRIGHT Is copyright protected in perpetuity? No. It is protected for a limited period of time. What is the term of protection of copyright? The general rule is that copyright lasts for 60 years. In the case of original literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works the 60-year period is counted from the year following the death of the author. In the case of cinematograph films, sound recordings, photographs, posthumous publications, anonymous and pseudonymous publications, works of government and works of international organizations, the 60-year period is counted from the date of publication.

The easiest way to deal with this situation is to get the Copyright claim retracted by Aiplex Software Pvt. itself. Youtube can only process retractions that are sent from the same email address or domain that submitted the original claim of copyright infringement. For this you would have to submit a Counter Notification
