Ok here is the deal, A friend and I want to set up a youtube channel as a music publisher and get partner. But I have looked it up and gotten lot of different information on the rules of how this works. So can anyone tell me what I need to do, The main thing I want to know is do I need to get permission to use someones music? If so how do i prove that I have gotten this permission? Also what sort of stats should I have before applying for partner and if there is any other info I should know please tell me.
