recently I had a nice conversation with AdRev support and they told me, they get money only from USA views. AdRev response:
PROs collect revenue generated from all non US views, whereas AdRev can only collect US views for publishing sync. Your PRO should be receiving their info from YouTube directly and paying out accordingly. Make sure you have all songs registered with your PRO, and you can always double check to make sure they have all they need for YouTube collection.
How does it look like in your PRO?
My Polish ZAIKS paid me 0$ for youtube. And I suppose that’s because they have system based on a filtering huge text files received from youtube. They have some kind of text filter which searches for names of registered authors in titles, descriptions of the biggest files. This is enough to find music clips with your music, eventually in films. That’s not enough to find music in commercials, vlogs etc. That’s what they told me more than year ago.
Does ASCAP use SoundMouse fingerprinting for youtube tracking outside the US? BMI?
