This video was filmed before the YouTube announcement about changes that they will implement to the contentID claim system.
While the side account for monetization claims is nice and something that we and others before us have pushed for, what’s to stop the claimant from just saying, “Nope still ours!” and taking the money forcing us to dispute a claim and then risk a takedown/strike?
These false claims still have no repercussions, and while this change could be good, it could also go into a horrible new direction. False claims can now get money during the dispute, and then the claimers can chose to not release the claim and steal more money.
Before they made no money during the dispute, now a side pot of money is theirs for the taking.
