YouTube Content ID
HAAWK works to find each and every YouTube video using your music and authorizes YouTube to place advertisements before, over, alongside and after those videos.
We collect ad revenue from YouTube and pay you a very healthy percentage of the earnings. By partnering with HAAWK, you’ll gain valuable insight into the usage of your music on YouTube and gain control over which videos are allowed to remain up and which videos you’d like to take down. Having pioneered the YouTube rights management space, HAAWK’s team brings years of experience with YouTube and can also assist with placing your music into more YouTube videos and promoting your music to YouTube creators. In addition to music, HAAWK works with audiovisual rights holders including TV production companies and film studios to protect, monetize, and promote their content on YouTube.
In addition to YouTube Content ID, HAAWK protects and monetizes videos and music (both sound recordings and compositions) posted to Facebook (via FB Rights Manager), Vimeo (via Audible Magic), and SoundCloud.
