YouTube Content ID
Advantages to Having My Music on YouTube Content ID
Youtube was founded in 2005 and allows people from across the world to discover, watch and share their videos.
More than 1 billion unique users visit YouTube each month.
Over 6 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube.
100 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute.
Why Should I Have My Music on YouTube?
70% of YouTube traffic comes from outside the US and is also localised in 56 countries and across 61 languages, so your content is viewable by a truly global market.
Monetising your videos is a great way to make money from your videos and YouTube has more than a million advertisers using Google ad platforms, the majority of which are small businesses.
Content ID scans over 250 years of video a day and means that you can make money from unauthorised use of your music as well as allowing you to earn money from your own music videos and live performances.
How Does Content ID Work?
Copyright owners can use Content ID to manage their content. Videos are scanned against a database that has been submitted by content owners, and copyright owners have the right to decide what happens when content in another video matches their own.
Options that are available to copyright owners include:
- To Mute audio that matches their content
- To Block a whole video from being viewed
- To Monetize the video by putting ads on it
- To Track the viewer statistics of the video
