Creators can avoid the Check System and publish their content while the checks are running but there is a risk of their videos being limited if the system finds any problem later. Checks harness YouTube's Content ID System, which monitors all content for copyright infringement.

Even if the Check System fails to find any problem in the video, copyright owners can still manually file an infringement claim after the video is uploaded. But this system will still help creators from accidental violation of the policy or having to go through the trouble of fighting these claims. This will also reduce piracy on YouTube too.
