How does youtube view count work?

I was looking at the channels page on youtube for most views of all time and it says that universalmusicgroup has 5,860,179,93 views. So how does that work because i know there is no way in hell almost every body on this planet viewed one of their videos at least once. Do they add up all their view counts for all... show more I was looking at the channels page on youtube for most views of all time and it says that universalmusicgroup has 5,860,179,93 views.
