Content ID is an automated system that helps copyright owners identify and manage their content on YouTube. The Content ID database contains over 50 million active reference files, and YouTube has actually paid out $2 billion to rightsholders via monetized claims since Content ID first launched 10 years ago.
How does the Content ID system work?
DPM Network Music Distribution in Partnership with Lick’d sends your music to YouTube to be enrolled in their content id tracking system, and a digital fingerprint is created. The database is then scanned to determine if the audio and video fingerprint is used in any uploaded videos. When the system finds a match, the video using the content gets a Content ID claim, and monetization (ads) will be turned-on for that video. YouTube charges advertisers on a per-click or per-display basis and shares the revenue with you, allowing you to earn money whenever your music is used on YouTube. The money collected from that then gets forwarded to us and will appear in your royalty statements.
Yes, you can upload compilation albums or ‘Various Artists’ Releases

What is a W-9
Form W-9 (officially, the “Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification”) is used in the United States income tax system by a third party who must file an information return with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). It requests the name, address, and taxpayer identification information of a taxpayer (in the form of a Social Security Number or Employer Identification Number).
What is a W-8BEN
The Form W-8BEN, Certificate of Foreign Status of Beneficial Owner for United States Tax Withholding, is used by foreign persons (including corporations) to certify their non-U.S. status. The form establishes that one is a non-resident alien or foreign corporation, to avoid or reduce tax withholding from U.S. source income, such as rents from U.S. property, interest on U.S. bank deposits or dividends paid by U.S. corporations. The form is not used for U.S. wages and salaries earned by non-resident aliens (in which case Form W-4 is used), or for U.S. freelance (dependent personal services) income (in which case Form 8233 is used). The form requires the foreign person to provide a U.S. Taxpayer Identification Number unless the U.S. income is dividends or interest from actively traded or similar investments. Other W-forms handle other international issues. The IRS released a new version of W-8BEN in February 2014 that required corporations to sign a W-8BEN-E form instead.
