What if the YouTube Video that Contains my Music is Embedded in a Webpage?

This is common with sites like Twitter, where Youtube videos are re-posted.

Even though this video is embedded onto a 3rd party site, Songtrust can still automatically claim it for you through Youtube's Content ID system. Once you add your songs with  ISRC information into your account, we automatically deliver them to YouTube’s Content ID System. This enables us to automatically claim all of the monetizable videos on your behalf, without you having to provide us with the video link manually. 

However, if you do come across any videos that are using your music that are not being claimed (such as covers or live performances), you can submit them to us in the Manual Claims section of your Youtube Monitor. Please note that we can not monetize videos that do not meet YouTube's new eligibility requirements (as of February 20, 2018).

PRO TIP: If you do have a YouTube channel, we highly suggest you join the YouTube Partner Program and add your channel to your YouTube Monitor. This will allow you to monetize your own uploaded content without having to go through Songtrust. We will still claim any videos on other users' channels, provided that they do not have a proper agreement with you in place.
