Q.  Does participation in YouTube's Content ID for some of my music videos (or tracks) disqualify the tracks from being uploaded here?

A.  No.  Simply having your tracks digitally distributed elsewhere and/or included in online YouTube videos or music-only "art tracks" wherein the videos or tracks may be earning money via YouTube’s Content ID program does not disqualify your tracks. 

What we disallow participation in externally from our company is any program that enters your tracks into Content ID as source-origin tracks that are then fingerprinted and matched against all existing and newly-uploaded videos on YouTube and, when a match is found, starts monetizing such videos for the financial benefit of you and whomever has distributed your tracks to Content ID.  

The reason why this is problematic is because this causes ads to be appear around and in such videos, and if one of our clients then licenses one of your tracks here, includes it in a video and uploads it to YouTube and then ads start running around their video, this creates a problem for some clients, because many clients want to monetize their own videos for their own benefit, rather than for the music artist’s financial benefit.

However, we do allow this type of Content ID participation here, via our "Internet Royalties" opt-in program for artists/content providers who are participating at AudioSparx.  The reason why we allow participation here is that since when such a problem occurs, we can immediately demonetize individual videos as necessary for the client that reports the problem.  So, you’re welcome to participate in Content ID that way here, just not externally via other similar server providers.
