Does CD baby own publishing rights over your music? I put a song up there July 2014 and they released it on Youtube without my knowledge or permission.

they have an opt in for YouTube ad revenue collection. They don't own anything. They will claim your videos to collect ads on them and then pay you but no, no ownership. You don't have to opt in for this (if you just do distribution and not the "Pro" option)
