What is YouTube Content ID?
YouTube Content ID is a service by request to Amuse Pro/Boost users, helping you identify whenever your music is used in a video on YouTube and earn money every time it is used in a monetized video.
Only original music is eligible for YouTube Content ID, meaning samples or any other elements that are deemed a copyright infringement on YouTube’s policy, are denied YouTube Content ID.
Keep in mind that when YouTube Content ID is added, YouTube Music is automatically included as well. This is a requirement from YouTube's side.
Who can request it?
This is an Amuse Pro/Boost feature, meaning it's only available if you have an upgraded Pro or Boost subscription. For Pro users, it's available for no extra charge. For Boost users, there's a 15% fee for Content ID royalties.
Start users don't have access to YouTube Content ID at all. So if YouTube Content ID is important for you, we recommend that you get a Pro/Boost subscription.
If you get a copyright infringement message:
Sometimes you might get a copyright message from YouTube saying that the owner of the music is Amuse. This is because we request the Content ID on your behalf. Don’t worry, the music is yours, and the money paid out from YouTube (if advertising is added) will be found with the rest of your royalty payments.
