What About YouTube Videos That Only Use a Part of My Song? Am I Owed Royalties?

Monetizing Youtube videos

Yes, you can earn royalties from a partial use of your music. You can monetize these uses by submitting these videos in your Songtrust YouTube monitor.

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.
