Just thought I would give back a little for all the info I've read here (thanks all!) and give a basic tip/idea I found. You CAN build up a huge channel with a tons of videos without having to worry about copyright strikes and you will have very little chance of ever getting banned via 3 copyright strikes. It's easy. About 30-40% of what you upload that is copyrighted will probably be detected via fingerprinting. Simply leave ONLY these videos up which are detected via fingerprinting on your main account and put all the others on the other usual high risk accounts instead. Make sure to hit "Acknowledge". From what I understand you'll never get a copyright strike because the rights holder specifically authorized it. But if your videos violate the TOS in another way then of course you can still lose them and the account easily. Also obviously if they show their ads instead you can't monetize using pre-rolls and other stuff. You have to find other ways to monetize. What's the advantage you ask? Well in theory you can build a massive channel with thousands of videos this way with minimal risk and many subscribers as opposed to only uploading channels/accounts with 5-50 videos and being limited. I hope this helps someone.
