For the distribution of the YouTube collections, GEMA has developed a distribution model in two segments for the GOP category which depends on the usability of the YouTube usage reports. YouTube primarily reports in a usable format for retrievals of classical music videos which are subject to monetisation at YouTube. The distribution for these is on a work-based and click-based level. For other retrievals, YouTube only provides usage reports which are difficult to evaluate. For video retrievals among those, a percentual compensation is made on the basis of the revenues in other distribution categories. The YouTube slider thus only provides a rough indication.
