hello, I would like to address this question to those who have done these things, not to those who theoretically "knows" Situation: Let's assume there is a channel which was created 4 year ago. And manager uploaded 60+ videos about specific content uploaded at once. Let's say its TV show documentary (different sources from different known TV channels) and content is from late 90's. So nothing happened, no copyright claims. No views, no channel growth. Somehow this person managed to make a contract with one MCN (even channel not having views) at that time. 4 year of silence. Channel earned maybe 1-5 buck/year. Lets say its zero. Manager even forgot about this channel. Lives his normal life having normal job, family etc.. - - - 4 years have passed. - - - Suddenly just few month ago smthing happened and channel skyrocked. Its growing and growing. +400 subs/day, 60+k views/day, engangement from audience (most USA), very good watch time. And shit gets scary. Channel ears more than regular job/month 5-9k usd/month - - - QUESTION (lets assume, as this is theoretical situation ) 1. As a contract was signed with MCN they know all personal info/detail. (how bad this is?) 2. What real consequences can have manager of this channel (banning of YT, or account termination, or taking down videos is nothing - easy come go). Main question what legal problem (for ex. court) can be processed to manager of this channel and what are chances for that. 3. For the past 4 year there wast copyright issues, as these TV series are quite old (also i see lots of channels having them also), but u never know when owner can come youtube. 4. Also manager might think to disconnect from MCN and connet to Adsense (its risky, because YT will take a look at your channel again for YPP and might not approve) 5. also another option - manager might thing to kill this channel as this is getting to real and to risky (or not?) 6. Maybe some of you have other advices Thanks in advance if you will try to answer question in the same number order..
