    Is it possible that you can still sell these beats by licenses to add a extra income and not just let them sit on Youtube?

    Sure.

    When you create original music, you have the right to distribute copies of your original music to who ever you want in whichever way you want.

    That's basically what a "copyright" is.

    The right to make copies of your original music and distribute it.


    With that said, you also have the right to distribute licenses to others to use your music as well as the right to sell your music directly or give it away, etc..


    Unless you sell off those copyrights or enter into an agreement that states that you will no longer distribute licenses to others to use your music. (EG: an Exclusive licensing agreement)



    But Again, be very clear and up front with your visitors / downloaders / customers about what your intentions are.

    Do you have to select this option when uploading with distro kid??

    "YouTube Money ($4.95/yr + 20% of YouTube ad revenue from matches we detect)
    Get notified & paid if your music is ever used in any YouTube videos. We'll add this single to YouTube's Content IDdatabase, and continually scan for matches. When your music is detected in any YouTube video, you'll be notified—and ad revenue will automatically go to you, instead of to the person who uploaded the video.
    Watch YouTube's video that explains Content ID."

    1. Sign up with a PRO like ascap or bmi.
    2. Sign up with an online music distributor like Distrokid or CD baby.
    3. sign up for an account at a site like audiam or adrev.
    Just a question but isn't it kind of pointless in a sense. lets say you get Cd Baby which takes %9 ten adrev which takes %35. In the end that doest look too good.

    If you look into some of these options and read the fine print you'll see there's money to be made if you do it right...
