Copyright claim filed on Google I/O 2017

A company called Time Inc. claimed copyright on my coverage of the Google I/O 2017 (use this link instead). On a spoken sequence. Yelp, no music, but on spoken words. Of course I disputed it, because that is fair use IMHO.
Interestingly on my other channel the same recording was claimed and then released without me doing anything.
What a mess on YouTube's copyright management where everyone can just file a claim with no merit.
I hope the dispute will be successful quickly.
