Don’t waste your YouTube music royalties. Let’s take a quick look at how to make money from music on YouTube.
How to collect YouTube royalties? Through YouTube content identifier. Content ID searches all of YouTube to find where your song has been used in videos, making sure you get paid when your music is used on YouTube.
What is the YouTube content identification system?
When you upload your free music to RouteNote for distribution, you can select Content ID to keep track of your songs on YouTube. Without charging you a dime, we work with YouTube to make sure your royalties are collected.
YouTube Content ID tracks your music on the platform, in YouTube videos, art tracks and short films.
Content ID is useful for YouTube creators because they can add songs to their videos without having to find the copyright owner of the music first, and it’s great for artists because the system finds the video and credits the rights holder, ensuring that the artist is paid.
YouTube sync license
RouteNote artists can also earn YouTube sync royalties. These are royalties you may not know you are entitled to. If your music is eligible for Content ID and you own the songwriting rights to your song, we may collect synchronization royalties on your behalf.
Micro-sync royalties are generated by syncing to YouTube, for music set to moving images, and are an additional source of revenue. Our new micro-sync royalty service will collect royalties for songwriting, not just the sound recording royalties collected by Content ID.
RouteNote artists can request a micro-sync royalty collection by completing this form here.
