    He just monetizes them with youtube. He has about 400k views in total.

    Is he at any risk legally or will they just shut down his channel?

    They are safe as long as the owners of the video doesn't file a copyright take-down against the videos.

    Worst case scenario - you get sued for thousands.
    Probable case scenario - they delete the videos.

    Lol I have one channel that contains a copied video which has more views than the original video. Some people upload good quality but target the video with horrible titles, description and tags. If thereis no copyright claims , video will normally stays up

    Your "friend" may be risking a big lawsuit gotta think is $700 worth possibly being sued for thousands if it goes to court

    As far as I knew, If you upload a copied video it may not be removed we all know that I am sure. If you try to monetize it however, don't you have to provide proof of ownership or something?

    Oh, again with my friend thing.

    To be safe, you just delete the video right now.

    Depends on the actual creators of the videos that you copied. There's a chance that they're one of those people that don't really care if their videos are copied.

    I have lost count of the amount of videos I have downloaded and re-uploaded to YouTube. I think you are thinking about things too much, the amount of copied videos on YouTube is huge. It is like saying will I get done for downloading films. Yes you could, is it going to happen? Probably not.
