Can The Person Who Used My Music in Their Video Stop Me From Placing Ads On It?

Monetizing YouTube content

No - if a person used your music in their video, then they can not stop you from monetizing a video that is using your music. However, they do have freedom to take the video down whenever they want.


Please note that we can not monetize videos that do not meet YouTube's new eligibility requirements (as of February 20, 2018).  In order for us to place ads on and monetize a video, the video must be on a channel that has at least 1,000 subscribers and 4,000 hours of watch time over the past 12 months.
