    TL;DR basically the trick is to figure out which part of your video(s) that got flagged by the Content ID, preferably by different companies, then add them to your next video. The effect seems that the Content ID cannot decide which claim it should tag the video. In the article's case, the Youtuber included clips from Nintendo, Konami, and Rockstar = all have notorious copyright claims.

    The only thing that hasn't been tested is the manual flagging of the video, but I'm not sure if three different companies can lay a claim to one video to have it monetized. Otherwise, the claims may end up nullified.

    I'm thinking of using this to my advantage when using clips of Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network next time.
