Will I Get Paid For YouTube Views In Every Country?

It depends on whether that market has been monetized.

Songtrust handles YouTube monetization on your behalf directly in North America and Brazil. In many other territories, YouTube royalties are collected by that country’s PRO, CMO, and/or mechanical rights organization. Globally, YouTube’s ecosystem is a patchwork of territories that may or may not have licenses in place, display videos properly, and/or generate royalties.

For a current list of monetized YouTube markets, check out the service’s help center here.
