    I recently made a new youtube account and posted some copyrighted stuff (music videos and trailers) and it's currently getting some steady views. 2 music video already has been taken down for copyrighted content. Few hours ago, I received the famous "monetize your videos" email from YT.

    I know very well that I won't be able to monetize those videos. But since now I have a monetizable YT account, can I delete those videos and upload some squeaky clean, non-copyrighted videos and apply for monetization? Do I stand a chance for approval from YT? Please help and reply.:eek:

    Thanks in advance.

    upload your non-copyrighted videos first and then removed the copyrighted videos. It won't be affected the youtube approval. You can also just wait the copyrighted videos until it gets removed by youtube itself, it will do NO harm to your account, it's just the video getting removed.

    That's like inviting death, and saying please leave me.

    You'll be banned!

    Take all those music videos down.

    Use Animoto to make free videos, upload them, and then apply for monetisation.

    Yeah, you'll get banned if you continue to post copywrighted stuff.

    But if you get rid of all that stuff, then reapply, and only post clean stuff from this point on, you should be good to go.

    "wait until copyrighted videos gets removed by youtube itself, it will do NO harm to your account" - Are you retarded? Or spreading the misinformation intentionally??

    If you have any previous copyright strikes, they're certainly going to review any new videos. If they're legit, you should be fine tho.

    I was many videos where was coming every day thousands views until Youtube removed them and banned my account. I see also that sometimes they ban you without any reason.
