This is excellent for a musician and I think it's terrific that companies are creating tools such as this. However I'd like to know where the content creator of the video gets a slice of the pie in terms of revenue share. For example, a two hour film may use one minute of commercial music. Is it fair for the copyright owner to earn exclusively revenue from that video when the majority of the work does not feature their copyrighted material. I feel there needs to be an improvement in this area like a tool that mathematically works out where to place ads and offer all parties a fair deal. The musician, content creator and advertiser want the benefits. I feel at the moment that the content creator suffers the most. Ideally content on Youtube can be properly licensed but we're talking about thousands of pounds to license a video which may only receive a few thousand views, it seems out of proportion and I feel the technology used by Youtube such as it's copyright ID system is a little dated even though it's only a few years old.
