A home video of mine was taken down from Google Video by Warner Music because of the soundtrack. Should I dispute?

The copyrighted song was someone else's content; however, it was used in a noncommercial nature, i.e. a video of my 6-month old daughter.
Only a part of the song was used, and the video itself was unlisted and therefore unavailable to anyone save friends and family receiving a direct link via a personal email.
I'm a little afraid because by disputing the video I'm legally exposed to this: "If, on review, the alleged copyright holder believes that your video infringes on its rights, expect that they will file a notification of alleged infringement under Section 512(c)(3) of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act."
So, dispute or no?
