    Ok so here is my story.
    My earnings for March were $700 April $600 Until May 9th 200$ thats the date my channel got terminated due to the 3rd copyright strike:(
    So i contacted Freedom and they said the following:(




    When you signed the contract in order to partner with Freedom!, you agreed not to violate either YouTube's and Freedom!'s terms of service, guidelines, rules or privacy policy.



    As stated in your contract, (Please refer to http://freedom.tm/pdf, clause 4.2, payment terms if you do not have a copy of the contract or wish to learn more about the terms used in the contact):


    4.2: Payment Terms. For a Talent's Channel Application and acceptance, the Talent shall receive an amount equal to the Talent's Commission, less standard commission fees for premium advertising or sponsorship campaigns that FDN may sell on the Talent's behalf, which it is entitled to receive and retain in any particular calendar month pursuant to each Talent's Agreement. As specified in the Application as accepted by FDN, FDN will pay Talent any fees owed hereunder within thirty (30) business days following FDN's receipt of payment fromYouTube in connection with the Talent's Channels. Payments will be made by cheque,Paypal, wire or any other form at FDN's election to an account that Talent specifies and may, at FDN's election, be combined with any other payments that may be owed to Talent. For clarity, a different revenue share may apply in instances where the Talent's Channels includes third-party licensed materials (e.g., cover video). All references herein to dollars will be to United States dollars.

    Notwithstanding the foregoing, FDN will have no obligation to pay any amounts, and is permitted to deduct or withhold any amounts owed, determined or reasonably suspected by FDN, in its sole discretion, to have resulted from: (i) Action Fraud (as defined in the section titled "Action Fraud" below), including without limitation through any clicks originating from Talent's IP addresses or computers under Talent's control, solicited by payment of money, false representation or request for end users to click on Ads, or (ii) fraudulent, misleading or false activities or activities that FDN or YouTube believe to be fraudulent or misleading or in violation of either of their respective terms of service, guidelines, rules, or privacy policies. FDN reserves the right to withhold or deduct payment, if applicable, pending FDN's reasonable investigation of any of the foregoing or any breach of this Agreement by Talent.


    Due to your channel has been terminated for either fraudulent, misleading, or false activities, Freedom! reserves the right to withhold or deduct your payment, as you violated both Freedom!'s and YouTube's terms of service, guidelines, rules or privacy policy. Therefore, you will not receive your owed earnings.


    Is there anyway u guys think i might get my money?
    Cause this is just so painfull to see them put it in there own pocket without giving me nothing!

    Please if this happened to u or u have some nice loop for me to still get this money i will donate u some of it:cool:

    Sorry I don't have any answers, but it sounds like double standards from Freedom. If they're accusing you of earning the money by fraudulent means, then how come they're happy to keep it?

    That's like saying "We're not paying you for stolen goods, but we are happy to take the stolen goods off you, thanks"

    Anyway, hope you get it sorted, good luck.

    This happens a lot with adsense, they ban you for fake clicks for example but they can't keep the money, they return the earnings to the advertisers. So I suspect that this is the same thing with youtube.
