Distrokid YouTube Content ID Run by Audiam

Distrokid has been using Audiam to collect their YouTube Content ID royalties since the beginning. Over the past few months artists have been having issues with adding their music to the YouTube Content ID system via Distrokid and creators have been having issues with claims that they shouldn’t have been receiving due to correct licenses being in place.

Unlike the relationship between Distrokid and Audiam, RouteNote has a direct relationship with YouTube and we manage our own catalogue within YouTube Content ID directly. This control allows artists to have piece of mind that when their music goes through our moderation system that it will be making it’s way onto the YouTube Content ID system. Additionally, creators have the understanding that if they correctly license music that sits within RouteNotes’ catalogue then it will be correctly released as soon as possible.

Artists and Labels are able to sign up for a RouteNote account for Free and start uploading their music to the YouTube Content ID system.
