    Hi, so last october 2016 I started a movie and tv show trailers channel, I mnetized everything i could, and like some 80 percent was blocked or claimed, but Indidnt get any strikes, the studios never contacted me, but the message from youtube was that tthe video was claimed by a third party that allowed me to show it on my channel but earnings would go to him, the message even said ita was only a heads up and that i wasnt in trouble. Somi kept uploading and i uploaded up till this day more than 600 videos, it didnt gave me much money, only like a 100 or 200 but i had only 20,000 subs and my channel was directed to spanish users mostly in Mexico, my country. I was happy growing my channel until today it was suspended without any prior notification, the cause doesnt seem to be a copyright infrigement the mail says it is due to spam, scam or "Contenido engaƱoso" cheating content?

    So i appeal but they will keep it suspended.
    I would like tomknow if any of you has done something similar, or what was the real reason i was suspended, it doesnt seem to be copyright Infrigment. I also have another trailer channel innenglish and it hasnt been suspended....

    What should i do? Should i give up? Besides the money i really enjoyed the Channel, thanks

    Hi, yes it was monetized, and my current channel Entertainment trailers is monetized, but maybe that is why they suspended me, I dont know, the mail said nothing about copyright infrigment and i never got a strike, i Would like to know if I was suspended for copyright or something else, is uploading trailers legit or not?

    Sure, but my channel is still suspended and I don't know why, maybe I did wrong and my advice won't help. The thing is you can upload must of the content from studios, trailers, promotional clips, tv spots, etc. bust most of them will be claimed by the studio or blocked. You probably received a mail saying that your video was claimed but you weren't in trouble only you can't monetize because the copyright owner is monetizing your video.

    The good thing is you don't get a strike, i uploaded over 600 and no strike, the bad thing is must of this video wont earn you any money. It's a volume game maybe from 600 I had a 100 videos monetized. This probably is not the best way to earn, but you might be able to grow your channel and make some original videos about movies that earn you money, like movie reviews, facts or fan made trailers, my best earning videos were actually fan theories and movies easter eggs. Good luck

    It can go 2 ways:

    1) According to what you are saying, you were hit with a community suspension due to spam. If i were youtube and see nothing but 600 videos of trailers you dont have the rights to, there a chance that is what happened.

    2) You are still infringing coypright. The claimant has 2 options: they can monetize from your video o file a take down. If you get 3 takedown strikes your channel can be suspended.

    So, yes.. give it up or understand what is fair use. You can get away with that.

    @Erick cv : You should Monetize your video by MCN, its save account from suspension. @Copyright claim : There are many channels working on this Niche. Wonder how.

    I would not personally spam trailers all the time, maybe I would mix some of my my main contents such as movie reviews, trailer breakdown, predictions and more.

    What about to make your own trailer with some pics and short clips 2-3 secs using for example magisto and using free music or a voiceover?
    Can it work?

    Yeah you might have got a community spam if all you had only trailers. Try doing a mix and see what happens but again only if you have time to waste on it if not pick a working method and work on it instead.

    Just to update here are some important facts i haven't told you

    1 I did get to talk with someone at youtube via the creators support center they check my english trailers channel and say it had no problem so far, but the owners of my content could change that whenever they wanted. Then they checked my suspended channel they say it was suspended beacsue of a violation of terms of service 5-h using offline readers, spiders or bots.... I never used them, I actually came to this forum searching about what those are.

    2 strangely they suspended another one of my channels with no content under the same pretext.

    3 some days later youtube send me and invite to their special program creators get after getting 20,000 subs and more than 10000 hours of view time, or something like that, supossedly my suspended channel qualified for the program but had no response after that one email.

    4 then they suspended my english trailer channel

    5 I have 3 other channels with that same account, they are still up and making money

    6 The fact is there are a lot trailer channels out there some have been up for years and have millions of subs check "Trailers in spanish" this one has more than a million subs, more than 5 thousand videos and has been up since 2012 I think. It does monetizes its videos, I know because I have seen ads in videos from that channel that I know are not claimed by the studios. Also that channel has no other way of income, no patreon, no web site. Uploading this videos and making the thumbnails and tags takes some time, its easy but it consumes a lot of your day, like a job, a very comfortable job but a job non the less, I had office jobs where I worked less. So if this channel is uploading so much videos is not for a hobby, is earning money and they definitely don't have a permit from the studios, that is almost imposible, you would need to ask individually for every trailer or tv spot, studios wont bother to answer. They only claim the video and let you be, remember that trailers are obviously copyrighted material but they are also promotional material, studios want to get them out there but they are lazy. Search youtube for any trailer and the first choice wont be a trailer from an official studio channel, they make no thumbnails and dont bother with tags that is why channels like mine get the first spot, we do the work of a community manager without them having to pay us and sometimes, when they get greedy they claim it so they earn money from your video, but when a movie is not getting very much critics or media attention, like Baywatch or Ghost in the shell they dont claim anything, from trailers to tv spots to Featuretes they are not claimed, because they need as much diffusion as they can get.

    7 Strange things happened before my channel was suspended, I got a lot of spam comments from those bastards of remix sound and ncss remix, this are infamously youtube spammers who are not penalized because they dont use links they only leave comments like "nice video" so people feels obliged to Suscribe to them as a thanks for commenting, but obviously they use bots because they do it in a lot of channels just search NCSS remix on youtube. Also one of my videos Earned a 100 dollars in one day, I know that is not much for many youtubers but it had never happened to me. So sometimes I think it could have been a spam attack (if those really exist and work, I would need someone to confirm this) or maybe just a mistake from Youtube, remember my channel,was suspended right after they made changes beacuse of the advertisers boycott, and every time youtube changes something they have a lot of bugs. I really don't think My channel was in any wrong, I had no strikes in any of my channels

    But if you want to try a channel like mine beware of this: It didnt earn that much and my original videos were my biggest earners, also my spanish channel had 20 k subs in six months but my english channel, in which I didnt upload any original narrated videos because I have a hard time speaking English, only had 350 subs after six months and never earned more than 15 dollars a month,competition in english is really though because there are a lot of trailer channels.
