    Hello BHW,

    I created a youtube channel, in late October comprised of mainly concert footage etc. I was simply trying to get quite a large amount of traffic to my channel by uploading very popular videos featuring popular artists. I also took footage from popular television shows.

    I gained around 1,000,000 views in one month (I must say, I was very lucky), over the course of many videos - and the traffic I was sending to my blog from the channel was great.

    However, during the early course of the month - I realized especially in live concerts, most artists don't play a song exactly like the recorded version, sometimes in a much different fashion.

    So much so that youtube doesen't recognize it as it's original copyrighted song, and I could monetize it.

    And from what seemed like a bonus, I gained around $100 from over-lay advertisements from the few videos I could manipulate and monetize.

    Then I got banned from youtube, and my channel and all my videos are gone.

    And yet, my $100 from adsense is still around - It's been 1 month and I haven't been banned from adsense. So I'm guessing it's all good?

    Which leads me onto say, could I just make quick channels and upload this videos again and again, monetize them, get a decent amount of money with adsense, get banned - and repeat the process?

    Or will google catch onto it? However I feel it quite dangerous manipulating and playing with youtubes implemented systems..

    Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    do not play with adsense. If you are suspicious about something, then leave it.

    I'm in similar situation.

    I got a footage from an Air Show that got instrumental version of copyrighted music.

    I earned something like 5 USD with this video since i posted. But i UNmonetize that video last week to avoid problems.

    Can my adsense account be penalized if i got an Content ID strike? It's okay to monetize that again?

    All videos of your banned channel were monetized?
