    Thanks a lot! The thriller is how nice channels have been demonetised and the way very repetitive channels which add the identical format and similar thumbnail, most thumbnails which come from copyrighted photos taken from YouTube are usually not being demonetised.

    Geee! I guess I’ve been shooting myself in the leg on YouTube all this while. All my descriptions have affiliate links sending viewers out of the site. I haven’t started monetizing my videos but I’ll definitely remember this tip once I start posting again.

    I really didn’t know that a demonetized channel can get back to monetizing the channel. I’ll try reaching out to the team on twitter. Hopefully I get lucky. I have a channel that has grown really big and I got demonetized! It hurts when I think of starting all over again.

    YouTube would rather let the law figure it out. But of course the law isn’t proactive either. So we’re in a stalemate where the creators have no clue whether a specific use of content is fair use or not, and neither behemoth (the law or YouTube) are taking initiative to fix an obsolete copyright system. I put burden of responsibility on YouTube since the law will never change of its own accord; it resists change until the people rally enough. But we creators are not numerous or powerful enough to able to rally with the force needed to change the law. So it won’t happen that way.
