From now on you will only be paid as a musician or master recording owner for your views, if your videos have accumulated more than 4000 hours watch (!) time and if your channel has more than 1000 followers.
You can circumvent this by becoming a member of ROBAs YouTube Content ID network and you will get paid from the first stream of your videos. We are one of the few fully YouTube certified music companies in Germany and the only music publisher here that has this certificate for the whole company.
