    Woke up to my second strike today (same artist as the first one, so I'm getting the message now :D), so this made me wonder that should I just "abandon" this account - I mean just leave it there and start uploading to new one(s), or still keep going?

    I'd think the chances of longer lifetime of my 50 uploaded videos would be better if I didn't endager them with any new material. Currently I keep getting like 1500-2000 UV a day, not advertising or using Vagex or anything - just uploaded the vids and let the snowball roll, so to speak.

    I wouldn't kill the account if you already have a stable of well performing videos there. But, you are right. You've only got one more strike coming to you before the whole thing could get shut down. So, if I were you, I'd leave this one be (save for uploading any videos you know you won't have any issues with. Just move on to the next account and grow from there!

    Good luck!

    Oh, and typically, if an artist flags me pretty quick, I know to avoid them all together going forward. So, you're right in just planning to avoid the two strike artist. They obviously have a watchdog looking for stuff like this. ;)

    That's what I was thinking, thanks for "proving me right". I'm quite confident if I could grow an account already to that point, I can do it again ;)

    Would probably be best to not stick to any single account when doing copyright. Upload x amount of videos to an account and move onto a new account, rinse and repeat.
