Knowing about asset types can help you determine how your intellectual property is managed and monetized on YouTube.
- Music Video - The official music video for a recording; has an embedded Sound Recording asset.
- Art Track - A Sound Recording with a still image; YouTube creates an Art Track from an uploaded recording, artwork, and metadata.
- Sound Recording - An audio recording; the underlying publishing ownership is represented by all embedded Composition Shares.
- Composition Share - An ownership share of a musical composition; embedded within a Sound Recording asset.
Other asset types cover content that isn’t specific to music partners. If you also control rights to non-music content that you plan to share on YouTube, check with your Identity Digital partner manager to determine the requirements.
