    Hi there, first an foremost english isn't my mother language so forgive me if i do a lot of typos.
    Alright so i have a youtube channel with fails videos. Most of them are taken from foreign language websites and i allways make sure that they are not on youtube already before i upload them. I also make sure they are allways filmed outside as youtube seems to allways ask me if i own copyrights when its a video filmed in a house.

    As of now youtube monetized most of them ( 85 to be precise ) except for a compilation video ( they asked me to proove that i own copyrights of that particular one )

    Now the question: If youtube monetized them, when i will cashout my adsense money, can they still ask me for proofs that i own all copyrights ? Basically im a bit scared that when i want to cashout 100$ they ask me proofs that i own all copyrights. I Looked all over the forums but i cant find an answer to this.

    Okay so basically, if there is known music, they will ask for copyright, if its a home video, they won't, usually they ask for the rights when there is a problem, getting paid isn't usually the way to trigger it.
    so you should be good in my opinion. however I'm not a youtube sexpert, but id say my opinion has value. not to sound like i'm a self loving jackass with my head up my ass.

    Youtube will usually ask you to prove copyright before putting ads on a video. If you have already done that, then my personal experience with adsense is you will not run into any problems during the cashout process.

    As far as the compilation video goes, have you tried breaking it up into individual clips and uploading it that way?

    Well that would defeat the purpose of doing a compilation, but im pretty sure i would have gotten away with it if i would have done that. Thanks for your input

    The reason your videos aren't making any money is because you need a real youtube partnership. Youtube doesn't offer real partnerships anymore and if you monetize with adsense you aren't going to make any money. A real partnership gives you lots of benefits including custom thumbnails, clickable links in your channel's header, higher search rankings, and high ad prices on your videos. I average $5 per thousand views but have had days where it went up to $20. I have 3 different channels partnered by 3 different companies so if you have any questions or need any info, please PM me and I'll be glad to share my experience with each company.
