Before I get into the method, I'll share some backstory of how I have made some change (3 grand) over the past couple years doing all whitehat variations of this method, and then I'll get to how I think this could be twisted into a blackhat method. I make music and I've owned a hip hop beat / original instrumental website for 10+ years. My beats have been used in thousands and thousands of places. Other people have used my music in several thousand youtube videos. One day, I signed up for a content ID service which I won't name. The way it works is you sign up, get accepted, upload all your music to their website, and anytime they detect my music on any youtube video, the system automatically puts a copyright claim on the video and gives the video owner 2 options: remove their video, or do nothing, in which case monetization will be enabled and all revenue will go to me. So, I flipped this "switch" and have been getting $50 to $200 per month ever since, from other people's videos that used my music. One more piece of the story: A pretty popular cable TV show also used my music in several of their episodes. Someone ended up pirating the show and uploaded those episodes to Youtube, and I got all the revenue for it. (Interesting...) By now, you can probably see where I'm going and how I think this could be a blackhat method. I could take any popular video, new tv show, etc, put a 10 second clip of my music on it, throw it up on a new youtube account, and monetization will automatically be enabled and the revenue will go to me just because I have a 10 second clip of my music on it until the video gets reported and removed. Rinse, repeat, and scale. I'm not claiming this to be an ultimate get-rich method, and I obviously haven't tried the blackhat version of this, so what are everyone's thoughts? I think it could work pretty well since your throw-away youtube accounts have no value and you never have to worry about an adsense account or anything like that, since there is no direct connection to you.
