Tracking your music’s digital fingerprint.
Content ID is a system developed by YouTube that allows you to monetize videos that contain your content – even if it is uploaded by another user. Yes, that’s right– when advertisements play on any video that contains a master recording, composition, or music video you hold the copyrights to, YouTube will give you a portion of the ad revenue that those videos generate. So if your song ends up in the background of a viral video, you get paid.
To have your content ingested into YouTube’s Content ID – become a pro-level user on Vydia’s platform for only $20 per year, create a new release and select Content ID. Get started on Vydia.com.
