What Happens When I Claim A Video in My YouTube Tool?

Claiming videos using the YouTube Tool

Once you submit a YouTube claim via your Potential Claims queue or the Manual Claims section within your Songtrust account, the videos go into a queue to be reviewed by our team and approved by our team. 

Once we assert a claim the uploader of the claimed video will receive a notification that their video has been claimed and they can no longer monetize the video. Advertisements will be placed on the video, and Songtrust will monetize it on your behalf.

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, 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.
