    If you've spent any time uploading content to YouTube, you know there are three types of videos you could upload:

    1. Original content
    2. Third party content that will be flagged for copyright violation
    3. Third party content that won't be flagged for removal, only demonetized.

    I've seen a few channels popping up that utilize videos that fall under #3 and then think up tricks to profit off of them. The two big ones are:

    1. Embed a quick 5-10 second ad at the start/end of the video that advertises a product you are selling (t-shirt,mug,etc.) with a link in the description
    2. At the end of the your 3rd party videos, link to any original videos you've uploaded to drive traffic there. Enable your original videos for monetization while making sure your 3rd party videos are disabled.

    Has anyone had luck with these methods? I've seen a YouTube channel with ~300,000 subscribers that uploads only third party content and he advertises a t-shirt he sells at the beginning of all his videos. I'm kind of looking to go down this route but I just wanted to know if anyone has any experience with this method?
