Which statement is true for multi-party ownership of an asset?
- YouTube applies no policy, unless the policy is Block.
- All asset owners must set the same policy worldwide.
- YouTube only applies your policy in your ownership territories.
- Asset owners decide which policy should be prioritized.
In YouTube, your assets can have multiple owners. In other words, you can share the ownership of content. For example, if you hold the rights in Germany and another partner holds the rights in US. Therefore, YouTubesystem allows you to declare your ownership by territory. That ensures that the correct partner can control and monetize their intellectual property.
However, it’s important to understand that an asset can have only one content owner per territory. Otherwise, it will cause ownership conflict. So, you can share ownership of the same asset (multi-party ownership) but not in the same territory. As a result, the statement “YouTube only applies your policy in your ownership territories” is perfectly correct. However, shared ownership requires some coordination. To ensure that you and the other partners can claim and control matched videos in your territories of ownership, check for duplicate assets or merged assets.
In addition, note that the publishing rights of a Sound Recording asset may belong to more than one content owner in the same territory.
