It was in the Music category, I had downloaded the song like 2 minutes after it was uploaded to SoundCloud, put in it Premiere and attached an image to the video, uploaded then monetized.

Yet other people have had their channels taken down despite actually adhering to fair use...

Hey @Flippy I suggest you take the high-road here and give it to the guy who uploaded the song. I'm sure he'll really appreciate it and omg youtube is broken.

Using ContentID this would be easily prevented by the creator.

Yeah, it's a pretty popular artist I would say. I have a copyright claim on one of my videos where the artist's main channel only has a few hundred subscribers.

You know most artists make jack shit even if they're "pretty popular" right? Only the biggest artists out there earn enough to make a good buck out of this, even a band like Lamb of God (who had a #2 charting album this year) still struggle to make rounds even though they're playing large venues all over the world.

I love how everyone is talking about fair use and the moral implications of this stuff, then Cloudy wanders in as always to talk about how much money they have.

Feel free to PM me if there is anything I can help with!
Also if you just want to talk I'm always available.

I'm positive it's this one, look at the stats of the video compared to the stats he posted:

I shared my earnings just like OP did. If you'd like proof like him I am glad to show it. :)
Just don't be jelly.

It's just amusing because you always do, I don't need proof or anything. I mean of course I'm jelly, I come from a poor as fuck family and struggle to get by on a weekly basis but that's besides the point.

Feel free to PM me if there is anything I can help with!
Also if you just want to talk I'm always available.

Really puts into perspective just how much Google ought to be grossing from this traffic, if to be able to pay OP such an amount. Especially considering they're making money not just from the displayed advertisements, but also the contribution to aggregate data.
