Copyright strike basics:

If you get a copyright strike, that means your video has been taken down from YouTube because a copyright owner sent us a complete and valid legal request asking us to do so. When a copyright owner formally notifies us that you don’t have their permission to post their content on the site, we take down your upload to comply with copyright law.

Keep in mind that videos can be removed from the site for reasons other than copyright. Also, Content ID claims don’t result in a strike.
