YouTube Policy (content ID)
The Licensor maintains the unlimited, worldwide rights to register the Composition with a content-ID program/institution and be the sole administrator of YouTube rights using such a content ID program. This is necessary and entitles licensor to maintain the administrative and legislative rights to the Composition, in order to be able to ensure non-exclusive and exclusive license owners administrative guidance and license-warranties. The main purpose is to stop people from stealing beats and using/monetizing them in videos without owning a license. Using a content ID program is the only way we can assure that only people with an appropriate beat-license are monetizing their videos rightfully and legally on YouTube. It also protects your videos from receiving fraudulent claims by third parties that claim to own the administrative rights to the beats.
