    So one of my 6 channels had one copyright strike from three months ago. i dont do anything copyright related anymore, so i was just waiting it out. this was three months ago that it got it. so today i get an email saying monetization on the channel was suspended. i go to look figuring that something else must have been flagged. nope, nothing new at all. just the one flag from back in September! Pisses me off because the channel makes over $100 a month.

    so i am thinking i should just submit a counter notification. i dont care about the video, but care about the money. i have read that nobody has ever been sued, which is what they would have to do to keep the strike. however, the strike is from CBS so they could squash me like a bug if they wanted to in order to make a point. obviously they are too big to request a retraction.

    so should i do a counter claim?

    this is the new Rule on Youtube... and yes you should make a counter... if you like to earn money with this channel.. i did make a post about this problem but no1 was giving a fuck.. Question did you have any other channels ? and did those channels had copyright strikes or community flags in the past months ?

    i have 7 channels. this is the only one that had any strikes at all. it is just crazy that after 3 months they do this. and it also makes me worried that they will disable the other channels too. and they make me over 2k a month. and those are all perfectly fine, not even close to any copyright stuff.

    i am just nervous to counter because it is cbs. they might sue me just to squash me. i have had people counter me when i hit them with copyright. they stole my videos, but it wasnt like i was going to take them to court and they knew that.

    Well so far ( if you use adsense ) its like if 1 of your channel gets monetization disabled all of them also. in the new Case for 3 months now not 6.. ( thats what the new Rule Claim ) then did you check if your after channels got still M . Also do you in a network or just Adsense ? Also what kind of video got a coypright claim... can you tell about the content ? Because copyright on youtube is tricky you not always win if the copyright holder is asshole because if you are not a BIG channel with 100k+ subs Youtube mostly dont give a fuck and want interfere

    i use adsense. it was disable on the one channel about 10 hours ago. the others are good so far. the type of video that got a copyright claim would be the equivalent of me filming a concert that cbs was putting on tv. its the only one like that i had, everything else is good. i just dont get why they waited so long. also, it told me that it would go away after 6 months, not 3. it says i cant get any more copyright before sometime in march.

    so i am thinking i need to counter claim, but i am terrified they will actually sue even though it is doubtful they will. but if they disable everything, i lose like 2k

    seems insane they would disable 7 channels for one strike on one channel

    thats not insane thats youtube.. and it depends maybe you still lucky and it doesn't affect all your other channels. And if it says 6 months so you still got the old rules on your youtube channel.But well then you would need to wait 6 months to earn money form it again , or you counter claim and get a second strike. What i am wondering is that you got your M disabled on the first Strike on your channel. So its your choice try to counter and hope the copyright holder don't give a fuck ( what mostly he does if its anything to do with music or film ) or your wait the 6 months and hope youtube will give you M back ( what is also not 100 % you can see many post about that in the google forums that people didnt get the Monetisation back after the strike was gone )

    What exactly led to you getting a strike? It really matters. Describe what kind of content/violation you had, perhaps I can help with clarifying this
