A video music license is a license that dictates how record companies are paid for the use of their official music videos. The National Music Publishers` Association (NMPA) and YouTube negotiated an agreement to distribute royalties for music used in videos on YouTube, where the property was previously unknown. The agreement addresses the continuing challenges of identifying ownership of musical works. YouTube now has the largest and most robust collection of music rights information. With a clean and meticulous catalog, you can get the best out of YouTube. It will also maximize efforts in all sectors of the music industry, including physical sales, streaming services, touring and radio airplay. Representation rights organizations or PROs manage copyright-related representation rights, in particular the collection of royalties between music publishers/composers and parties that wish to use copyrighted works. As your music is known worldwide outside of YouTube, there are other data points to consider: to understand how royalties on YouTube games circulate, you must first know the difference between a music composition and an audio recording. The most valuable thing a music publisher and record labels can have is well-organized catalog metadata. The cleaner the metadata, the better if you want to get paid. Subsequently, YouTube provides participating publishers with a list of songs for which “YouTube may not have been able to obtain correct ownership information.” Publishers can then claim ownership of these songs and receive accumulated royalties.
ASCAP will not usually ask YouTube to block a video without the express request of an ASCAP member, but it is entirely within the right of our members to ask us to block a video that uses their music without permission. Keep in mind that the music you used can be represented by several parts such as publishers, labels or PROs – if your video is blocked, the request may not come from ASCAP. An asset on YouTube is an intellectual property container. There are two main types of musical assets, composition and sound recording, which contain all their respective metadata. Content ID allows the addition, editing and editing of asset ownership and metadata. Asset metadata includes authors, artists, publishers, labels, unique identification codes and reference files. Composition, audio recording, music video, film, TV, game, sport, broadcast and other web video assets contain all metadata specific to unique assets. International Song Works Code (ISWC), used to identify compositions and international recording codes of the song (ISRC), which are used to identify sound recordings, are not exclusive to YouTube. They were created decades ago to identify compositions and sound recordings in all areas of music.
