    So, I've got around 50k views through around 20 music type videos (live concerts) and I got an email asking if I want to display ads on my videos a few months ago.

    I'm going to another concert soon that should get around 15k views, just wondering roughly how much should I expect to make if I were to put ads on my videos for 15k views? (once again, live concerts)

    Thanks

    Copyright issues, wont be able to monetize. If you was to monetize it, you would end up getting DMCA complains and possibly getting sued.

    Lol. They wont go that far dude. They wont sue you. But they'll just probably remove the video then (or remove just the ads) and give you a strike.

    That's another thing, I don't want my Adsense account to be put at risk.

    I've already got a few emails saying my videos contain copyrighted music so there's ads on them (which I don't get anything from obviously).

    Then simple, delete the emails asking to put ads on the videos. Problem solved. And never think of monetizinng ads on copyrighted shit.
