Your Ad Could Be Here

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm planning to launch a YouTube channel where music will play a big part, and I'm curious about the ownership implications of that, particularly for monetization on my videos. 

 

Plus, I've noticed that YouTube wants you to provide some kind of written documentation showing that you are the sole owner and rights holder of your song in order to get the videos monetized...

 

So, as a composer, performer, and engineer, what exactly should I plan to produce to prove the song is totally mine? 

 

I've also heard that if you put the songs for sale on iTunes and other online music retailers through a service like CDBaby, YouTube gives you a hard time about the rights being yours.

 

Any thoughts or experiences on these questions? :)

 

Thanks!

I'm not sure if it's technically related to copyright as I haven't read the full article yet, but I thought this would be interesting to some.
