Hi guys, This is Rob, a black hat newbie from Italy. I have a couple of Youtube channels I use to learn YouTube SEO and marketing. The first one has about 100K total views and that should be enough to allow the monetisation, but YouTube denied me permission. I guess the problem is that the only three videos on it (I had to drop the project for a long while) are considered as duplicated. I had an informal permission by the original owner to share them and I added Italian subs to it, but I guess it's not enough t avoid duplication. However, I can't say this is truly the reason because YT is not answering my requests for clarification. Now the questions: 1) Will my next videos avoid duplication issues if I add Italian voiceover to them rather than just subtitling? There are also embedded written texts on the videos that will be translated as well. 2) Should I just cancel the previous videos or is there any way to keep them and have the monetisation enabled? I see that the views count doesn't change so I guess the authority would remain intact. My YouTube Channel These con channel is a quite different case so I will open another thread (hoping to do it right and not to piss the moderators) Thanks to all of you guys.
