Hi... thanks a lot for posting this information. It is helpful.
Probably 8 years ago, I found a Beakman show I wanted to use for my students, so I uploaded it to my youtube channel (and forgot about it). I was monetized years ago (while that video was kept private) and others claimed copyright notices because of background music I had bought from Magnatune (which claimed to be ok for podcasting, but my podcasting server died).... anyway... I got kicked from monetization this year with the policy change... I didn't manage to get the 4k viewing hours...
I have started donig videos again and reached the limit for monetization... but I got rejected because of duplication... a couple of weeks ago, I got a message from youtube saying the beakman video was blocked worldwide as it had been found as duplicated... I deleted it prior the rejection to monetize.
Now that I got rejected I erased all the videos with copyright notice, except for one which I impugnated and I'm waiting for response... BUT! today at noon, I got the e-mail again saying my Beakman video was blocked... the same video I had already erased weeks ago. When logging into Youtube I found the video listed again, and deleted it AGAIN... with a message that I undertand the copyright notice would not be erased (?).
So, do you think I have any hopes to monetize or should I just drop the channel altogether? Will youtube rea-appear beakman's old video again in my list forever to blame me for that duplication?
