    it's hard to find a straight answer on this. there seems to be opinions either way, so i'd like to hear if anyone has some experience with this issue.
    so my YT account was banned. not sure why exactly but it said this - 'This account has been terminated due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube's policy against spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations.', so it could mean anything, but bear in mind i was at 2 copyright strikes so it could've been that but i would've expected it to just say i was banned due to copyright violations if so, but anyway..
    considering my ad revenue i'd made before my channel was banned hasn't yet showed up on adsense, should i expect it to and should i expect to get paid? my adsense doesn't seem to be banned yet.

    i hope you're right, i had a huge spike in viewership before being banned but they were real views and about $6,000 is on the line here

    the views were legit but that's not necessarily to say my content was. most of the stuff i was uploading i didn't have legal rights to and wasn't protected under fair-use.
    but like i said they didn't exactly specify why i was banned - it could've been false-flags by butthurt people for all i know.

    Adsense does not pay if your traffic or clicks are fake, in that case they give the money back to advertisers, but looks like you are clear.

    Mine was suspended on 3th Feb and total earnings $4K until now still haven't paid yet. My adsense current balance is still showing $0 till now..I already contacted YouTube support team. they said if your YouTube channel got suspended/terminated. Your YouTube earnings will not display on Adsense.. unless you got your channel back... Last time I had 9 channels banned and always got my payment.. I think they already changed their policy now.

    If suspended = No payment

    fking hell.. $99 appeared in my adsense from my other accounts but all those thousands are down the drain.
    so they are able to just terminate you without cause, or at least without specifying one, and then swallow all your earnings. disgusting.

    i got banned on Thursday a few days before my earnings being finalized, i thought i wasn't going to get paid as its happened before. but i have just checked now and my payments have been updated. Maybe i got lucky but just wait a few more days and hopefully you will get yours.

    nope, i'm screwed, as i mentioned above $99 from other accounts has been added but not the $5000 or so from my banned account.
