    Lately I have seen some "competitors" that are creating channels and upload hundreds of videos (all taken of other channels) in one or two days.

    What could be the objective of it?
    Desprestigie fair competitors hoping YouTube penalizing them for duplicate content?
    Seeing that the channels are not monetized, they think that this could be a method of obtaining adsense approbation?
    Gaining authority for later add some monetized/drive-thru links (nowadays videos has no annotations and description box is empty)?
    They are nailing it, and I'm a dumb who have to improve my skills? (I think that there is not enough videos for keep uploading 60-100 videos every day for so long. And IMHO I think that they are burning the long tail too soon).

    Have a look in the description box of each video and you will find your answer .. I would bet that they are driving traffic to some unrelated affiliate offer. Uploading massive amounts of videos, in hopes of getting a few views to each every day .. it adds up!

    Not the most honest of methods, and I can't see it working too well for them, so I wouldn't be bothered by it too much

    I don't know if they want to edit it later, but by now they are keeping the description box empty and there are no annotations o other links.
    The worst is that they are reuploading the videos without editing and sometimes the videos contain watermarks and other references to the original author.
    In addition, the channels don't last much time because original video owners report the videos.

    That's weird .. are they monetizing the videos with ads? I don't assume that they are, but I can't think of anything else.

    They could be building a bunch of subscribers, then once they have a good amount, uploading a video with links in, to monetize them?

    When you say they are nailing it .. You don't know that for sure. They could be wasting there time :)

    Don't worry about the competition too much. If you have a solid method, and a good plan, then you can still make £££ if you execute it properly

    I know it is a little weird!
    I played the videos in a non Adblock browser and I didn't see any ads. Due to it I answered if they are trying to make Google approving their Adsense accounts.
    When I answered if are they nailing it, I have being sarcastic (or not, in case I was wrong with my premises and they have been doing a successful method unknown by me).

    maybe they do this for sticking their website links in descriptions soon or later the videos are deleted but they can get views to their sites ..
