Can Songtrust Collect My YouTube Royalties?

When it comes to compositions, yes.

Songtrust offers YouTube monetization on behalf of your compositions as part of our worldwide publishing administration services. 

Upon registration, you are automatically opted into YouTube monetization. Please note that Songtrust can only help monetize your compositions. If you own your sound recordings , you'll need a distributor/label/third party to help monetize them on your behalf.

Once you add songs into your account with at least one ISRC, we automatically deliver them to YouTube's Content ID system. When YouTube locates a video that matches the metadata we provided, it automatically claims the video for us.  

If you come across any videos with 10,000 views or more that are using your music and we have not already claimed, please submit them in the Manual Claims section under YouTube in your Songtrust account. These claims are then reviewed and confirmed by the Songtrust team once they have met YouTube’s monetization eligibility requirements.
