you answered an ask about how to joined a network for your videos and started monetizing them - are just about all your videos monetized? if so I was wondering what the deal is w monetization and copyright claims in regards to music. my own channels been eligible for monetization for a while but Ive hesitated doing anything with that cause the majority of all of my vids contain copyrighted music; Ive been wondering how you guys handle that
yes - most of our videos are monetized. we go out of our way to make sure that we don’t use copyrighted music because it’s not worth our time to spend 3mo+ on a video just to find out we can’t monetize it.
any video that has copyrighted music is ineligible for monetization aka you won’t make any money off of it. you can fight the claim in favor of fair use, but it’s risky because if you lose it counts as a strike against your channel and i believe it revokes your monetization & livestreaming abilities for 3 months. if you get a strike while in a network you’re also kicked from the network as well
overall it’s just best to avoid using copyrighted music at all
