How Do Royalties Work with VEVO Videos on YouTube?

The same rules apply.

VEVO videos are monetized using the same online advertising model as other user-generated content on YouTube. This means that YouTube relies on International Standard Recording Codes (ISRCs) to automatically claim VEVO clips that feature your music. VEVO videos also need to meet YouTube’s eligibility requirements in order to qualify for ads in the first place. These include having at least 1,000 subscribers, 4,000 hours of watch time over the past 12 months, live in a country/region where the YouTube Partner Program is available, and have a linked Adsense account.
