This is a question for a friend of mine who makes Dance Choreography Tutorial videos. He makes 2 uploads at a time, a video without the song, just teaching the steps that he can monetize. And then another video with the full dance routine with a copy righted song. From what I've gathered so far, it seems Youtube does one of the 3 following when it detects a video with copyrighted contents. 1. Partially Block it from some countries, or block it from mobile 2. Completely Block it 3. Make money off them I read somewhere the creator chooses beforehand what to do with videos automatically if they're found with their content. Now my friend says he's found some videos containing copyrighted music that he can view just fine (so they weren't blocked). But when he uploads something using the same song using his test account, his gets blocked. Does anyone have an idea what's going on? I've warned him that the nature of his channel is gonna have a lot of trouble with copyrights, but he's determined to make it work as similar channels somehow get away with it.
