Do I Need to Setup a YouTube Channel to Collect Publishing Royalties?

Songtrust’s YouTube Monitor helps you collect royalties for music used in videos that you did not upload. So, if someone does a cover of your song or records your live set and uploads it to Youtube, you can claim your song on those videos are earn royalties.

If you do have a YouTube channel, we highly suggest you join the YouTube Partner Program and add your channel in our YouTube Monitor. This will allow you to monetize your own uploaded content without having to go through Songtrust.
