    What i mean is not when you get an email and thy tell you about copyright issues, but when you don't even get an email an your video is blocked for monetization.
    This happened on videos that are my property, my own music, but I still can't make money with them.

    Any ideas??

    I believe this is fairly common to new Youtube accounts, or accounts that have small viewership/subscribers. The more popular your channel is the more likely Youtube will be to monetize your videos, at least I'm pretty sure this is how it works.

    If your account is fairly new I would try posting a few videos first and driving some Views/Likes/Subs to your channel. The best way to do this in my opinion if your looking to do a little Greyhat is Youlikehits. There are a few bots on this site that will work for you too, but that's up to you. You'll want to keep your ratios under control that way Youtube doesn't clearly see all your using is this method. What I mean by that is don't have 1000 likes on a video and have just 30 subscribers (It's too obvious).

    You can also just keep creating some quality content, eventually you will get noticed if it's truly good and unique. Use social media to expand your reaches, be active on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Pintrest, ETC.

    Hey... thanks for ur responde.
    Actually my channel has like a million views total, and most of my videos are monetized, but as I stated, some of my videos got rejected and I cannot reply with my copyright info or whatever because youtube is not notifying me, they just erase the monetize function for that particular video. Happened already with 4 or 5 vids. Most of the time when something happens with the video I get an email and I provide copyright info. Not with the ones I'm mentioning. But i can't figure why and I can't send them my copyright info... weird.

    It's a common bug on YouTube recently. I just got a video resubmitted (and rejected) for monetization for fourth time this week. I just keep resubmitting hoping they are fixing the bug. The only way to get your video monetized is to make YouTube staff manually approve it. I got two videos approved this way - took me half a month though.

    Is it really a bug or that's your interpretation of the situation?
    Really shitty bug if it was like that!
