Hi, I have recently upgraded from Elements to Pro and love it! However one of the main reasons was I needed good music score for my YouTube videos which I always monetise. I thought this music was Royalty Free??!! I have paid £20 for 3 pieces a month and Youtube will not let me monetise and instead are sending the Adsense funds to the writer of the music!! What have I actually paid for then? I am about to unsubscribe as this music is useless if I can't monetise. Any suggestions please.(It is a fantastic selection of musoc BTW)

There's always Envato Elements.  For $198 a year, you get access to all sorts of graphic/video components, and of course, music beds.  Check them out and ready the licensing to see if it applies to you.  YouTube can be quite the pain in the butt.  Envato has you to "license" (or should say, catagorize your media) per project basis.  That's there to protect you and the creator of the content downloaded.

Hi lesley_pyke,

Thank you for your question. All of the audio licensed through Adobe Stock is royalty-free and you will definitely be able to monetize it. YouTube simply requires you to show that you have a license. The steps are outlined here: https://stock.adobe.com/audio-copyright-claims. It seems a little complicated the first time you do it, but after that the process will just take a minute.
