Should I allow my video's to be edited/shown on someone elses channel?

Hi All - new to the forum,

I've recently started a channel on YouTube and have been approached by a couple of well known brands who have in the 10's of millions of subscribers across multiple platforms (YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, etc) - both have made similar requests/offers - eg: they want to copy and edit one or more of my channel videos - typically putting a new soundtrack over the top then play them across their channels - the offer is that they will place a link back to my channel from the video post.

On the face of it this seems like good exposure with little risk to myself, I will be looking to monetise my YT channell when I become eligable - does anyone else have any experience of these type of offers - I'm assuming they are quite common - are there any pitfalls to be aware of by entering into an agreement like this?

Appreciate your thoughts,
