i was crushed this morning when it said my youtube accounts were disabled from monetization. worse is i have no idea why. i am panicking since i made over 4k last month. here is what i know - accounts are still up, so i wasnt banned. i have 3 copyright strikes but spread out over 3 accounts. none of the strikes came within the past month - it says you can lose your rights to monetize if too many content id matches or if vid is blocked worldwide too many times. i have a few of those, but again nothing recent - my adsense is still up, thankfully. - i do nothing blackhat in terms of views or clicks at all. the most i am guilty of is sometimes there are songs in the background of my videos (very rarely) that get snagged by matched third party or i make some videos that might use a sec or two of footage that isnt mine. i really dont do that anymore. as i learned my way, i now know what i can and cant get away with. i really have no idea what is going on and this will destroy me if i cant get monetized. the worst part is that it doesnt even really say what it was that triggered them disabling me. i have nothing new as far as strikes or content matches at all. so is there a step i should take to try to get it back? i dont even see how to appeal. is there a way to set up a new account? i can use a different name and account. but dont i have to worry about things like ip's? if so how do i get around that?
