YouTube is probably the biggest and most popular online streaming platform in the world. It has more content than the iTunes store and more users than all well-known streaming services combined. Google-owned YouTube is a video-sharing website on which users can upload, view and share (music) videos. Most of the content on YouTube is user-generated, but professional media companies and content owners also offer their content on the site. By delivering your content to YouTube labels are able to monetize each and every view of a video on YouTube containing their content or a snippet thereof. Labels delivering content directly to YouTube will have access to YouTube’s Content Management System (“CMS”),allowing them to manage their content on YouTube.All content delivered to YouTube will automatically become part of YouTube’s audio-fingerprinting system/ CMS system, which automatically detects and provides the option to monetize videos that contain the label’s content. Further to this, aggregation clients are also able to have their channels added to our YouTube Multi Channel Network (MCN), so videos are able to be claimed as music videos, which are monetized at a slightly higher rate than standard UGC.
