What Types of YouTube Videos Does Songtrust Pay Me For?

Youtube Royalties

Songtrust will claim videos either through Google's Content ID System (which occurs automatically) or videos that you submit in your YouTube Monitor within your Songtrust account. Make sure you claim any covers, live versions, compilations, how to videos, karaoke, music videos not on your channels, and any other user generated content that has your music in it.


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.
