    Hey guys, im about to jump in the Youtube + Adsense stuff, mostly cause i like editing videos and interact with people

    I searched niches what could i do ( I do VFX for about 10 yr now ) and DAMN i saw so many videos wich i know are not allowed to be monetized aka, Dragonaball Scrubs HIMYM Death Note..

    you name it, it has been monetized, i mean wtf ? Those videos have millions of views and yet they are monetized ?

    I know that Youtube automaticly puts ads up if they see copy content and send the money to the copyright owner, but those people are getting the money..

    I watch this now for about 1 1/2 years maybe less since everybody can monetize videos, and i have wondered how do they do it ?

    There was a guy who had ripped the DVD'S from scrubs all of em Season 1 - 9 in German that channel was Online for about 3 years, every episode had about 2 million views!

    I mean even if Youtube detects copyright stuff they usually strike or bann the account or am i mistaken ?

    Can someone explain all this to me ? Please :(

    In some cases the owners of the content, in the case of Scrubs it's abc, will allow the content to remain online especially if it's a shitty rip. The reasoning behind this is two fold; they'll get ad revenue off the video and they also get their link embedded under the video where you can buy the original DVD. So it's really a form of advertising for them.

    In all honesty it's better to stay away from copyrighted content.
