What is YouTube’s Creator Music feature?

Quite the creation ๐Ÿ™Œ ๐ŸŒŽ

YouTube’s new feature, Creator Music, has been developed in order to enhance music development for smaller creators, who may not have the contacts or budget to license copyright-protected music. Music-makers will be able to easily flick through a huge, growing catalogue of tracks to buy or to use, or choose a revenue-sharing option so artists benefit. Pop music is no longer out of bounds for YouTube creators!

Formerly faced with the two options of; royalty free music that lets you keep all of the revenue generated, but use music from unrecognised artists, or copyright-protected music from higher profile artists, where all the revenue goes to the music rightsholder. Creator Music provides the huge selection of tracks to buy or use – and creators will still collect revenue from advertising. So everyone wins!

Please note! Creator Music is currently in beta and it’ll only be available in the US for the time being. The store says it’s testing on a smaller group initially, but further expansion will come in 2023. It plans on โ€œoffering a wide range of licensing price points and usage options”!

Here at RouteNote, we’ll be working with artists to ensure they are paid fairly for their music on monetised videos.
