If anyone uploads a video to YouTube that contains a sample of your music, you can earn money from the ad revenue collected on that video's plays. TuneCore has partnered with YouTube to ensure your royalties are accounted for through TuneCore YouTube Sound Recording Revenue collection service. For a $12 one-time setup fee and only a few minutes to register your songs, you’ll be collecting money from videos all across YouTube's catalogue.
