    I uploaded a video that went viral for 1.5 million views and paid roughly $2,900 cash. Today, the video showed up as "matching 3rd party content". I know that any money earned from this point will go to the 3rd party but my question is, will i still get paid the $2,900 for the views before it was claimed?

    No, you probably won't, so I wouldn't get your hopes up. That has been my experience anyways.:(

    So was it actually third party content though? Or was it falsely flagged?

    You will get paid, don't worry. Last month I earned 6500$ and all of my videos were matched 3rd party. The money is in Adsense now and I will get it in 3-4 days. I've been doing this for over a year now.

    You've been doing that for longer than a year and your adsense account is still not banned?
    I find it very hard to believe.
    Are you a cousin of Youtube's CEO or something?

    Given that he already ignored the same question, I think they were, indeed, 3rd party contents.
    If they were his, he'd already answered the question.

    That's what I do, upload the copyrighted material for 1-2 days, 5-10K views then I delete the video.

    I don't do if you get paid but how could you make $2.9k with 1.5m views? My friend made $600 with 1 million.

    Wasn't ignoring the question. I have a job and was away from computer access. The content was a local news story which was broadcast on the local news. So i don't own the material. I have disputed the claim as i don't believe the company owns the content but neither do I. Should i delete it all call it a day? Would stink to lose the traffic.. not sure what to do

    Will do. I have disputed the content claim as i believe it is a fraudulent claim. They have a month to respond to the dispute

    It doesn't look like the 3rd party has monetized the video on their end as it plays without ads.. so I guess I have that going for me..

    I got all 1.5 million views in 2 days so my cpc (cost per click) was probably higher than your friends
