YT Attribution Changes - What Now?

Hi BHWs,
it´s youtube related.
last summer youtube made his changes to their site layout.
next to this they also changed some fact inside the html code.
they decided to delete the annotations meta tag where the network was mentioned
the video belong to if it was within a network.

this minor change hit me like a bus, cause i made a small checkup script for my related stuff,
if it was claimed by my network where i belong to or someone else or not.

with my "official" yt acc i belong to a network. many reasons for that, but with one thing i´m really unhappy. their administration is not willing to give me the attribution related infos inside my yt acc panel when i´m searching for videos. they told me that this information i need is only available for content/ network owners inside the content id featured administration panel.

thats the situation. my question is now:
- how can i still grab these informations?
- would it be possible that these network infos could be seen within the content id panel of a approved channel acc?
- those kind of approved channels can be created or bought?

till now i only know, that the content id is based on a manually applied registration form from youtube/ google. so only buying a "normal" account wouldn´t do the trick, right?

would love to get your BHWs help to solve that issue.

Cheers, K.
