A few months ago I reported on an agreement for my songs on movie sharing websites like Youtube. Anyone can use my music around they desire in personal movies, additionally the system will recognize it and distribute any advertising revenue immediately.
When the system acknowledges my music, you might get a note that appears only a little cryptic, something like this:
Your movie "Title Of Video", may have content which had or licensed by [Merlin] Phonofile, nonetheless it’s nevertheless available on YouTube! In some cases, ads can happen close to it.
This claim isn't penalizing your bank account standing.
This message is good news! Phonofile / Merlin are my dudes.
This is how it really works: My label is Uncanny Planet, that is actually just a small business I run myself. Uncanny earth delivers and licenses all my product to Phonofile, my digital supplier. Both Phonofile and Uncanny Planet tend to be people in indie label organisation Merlin, just who negotiates mega-deals for indie labels towards media leaders like Google, Apple, etc.
