What is YouTube's Content Management System (CMS) ?

This helps you collect royalties from YouTube.

Content owners use YouTube’s Content Management System (CMS) to provide the metadata of different content types, including videos, sound recordings, and compositions. It is the primary way Songtrust registers, monitors, and protects your compositions within one of the world’s most popular websites.

YouTube’s CMS is also home to its Content ID system, which gives content owners the chance to claim and control user-generated content. Songtrust uses this system to automatically discover and monetize videos that use our clients' compositions.
