I got a notification from google webmaster tools for an embed video in my site which is a music video from an official production video company.

The same company who have uploaded have sent the claim to Google. Even it is in their official channel. And embed code is enabled on this Youtube video.

Is this a normal claim?

They are sending claim to all the sites who have a good SEO. So it's not personal to me.

Should I have to fill an counter claim?

I would appreciate any help or experience. :)

Youtube offers the embed option and embed is not stealing. It doesn't matter if it is visible in your site. It's still on youtube they give you permission to stream the video. And since the clip is still in the possession of the official channel and not in yours, you are in no violation. So yes fight back and contact youtube support but i doubt they will respond. Good luck!
