Whilst not mandatory, we do recommend adding your Content ID policy in your contract. There are a few reasons for this:
- Customers know how they can use your beat.
- Less disputes are raised, and they are easier to resolve when they are
- If you do want to monetize someone's video even after a license is obtained, you have every right to
- If we need to resolve a dispute on your behalf, we can do so (in your favor).
Examples of information you can include in your contract:
Licensee is not entitled to monetize any videos containing this beat
Licensee is entitled to XX non-monetized video streams
Licensee is entitled to XX monetized video streams
Licensor is entitled to monetize any music video uploaded to YouTube containing this beat
This beat is registered for Content ID and a claim may be placed on your video. To remove this, dispute the claim and quote your order number
We are not a legal entity and we strongly advise contacting a lawyer when making any changes to a contract.
Content ID is available to Platinum members only. If you have a free account, you can upgrade here.
