Anyone have experience with Identifyy? They are a free service that claims to find your music and gets you paid if your music is played on YouTube, Facebook or Instagram. They take a small percentage of what your music has earned. I don’t have any more details than that. Here is their link.

I don’t have much experience with Identifyy yet – however, knowing that I was going to have an ad drop on Facebook and Youtube last week with a piece I had written, I had preemptively loaded in the song to the Identifyy database. So I’ll be able to report back at some point to see if they’re catching the plays. Looks like for this period, royalties are paid Oct 31st. Not sure if that’s when they release the actual reports of number of plays (I don’t see any live tallies).
Personally, I’m mostly curious about Facebook plays myself.
Similarly, I wonder if anyone has been with Identifyy long enough to see royalties?

Thanks for replying Brad!
I asked Identifyy a couple of questions, here is the reply:
Identifyy fingerprints your music copyrights and claim any videos that use your music on YouTube. We can then collect advertising revenue on those videos.
Here’s the initial “cold call” email I received friom them:

I asked about some details – specifically what happens when someone places my music on youtube legitimately by licensing from another company. Here’s the reply:
dentifyy operates on a 70/30 split – we pay you 70% of the ad revenue we collect on your behalf. This way there is never any out of pocket expenses for you. You can check out more about us in our terms and conditions here and our FAQ here.
In regards to your last question, if you know of any specific videos or channels that are using your music, you can send those to us ahead of time to be whitelisted. This way, those channels will never see a claim from us. Any other videos that use the music you upload with us will receive a copyright claim and will have the option to dispute it. We have a dedicated admin team that is constantly reviewing our disputed claims and getting them resolved within 24 hours. A copyright claim does not affect the monetization of anyone’s videos, as YouTube holds on to all ad revenue generated during the period of time the video is under dispute and returns it to the proper copyright owner once the dispute is resolved.December 17, 2019 at 7:01 pm #33787
