Best Way To Monetize "Reused" Content on YouTube in 2022 - 2023

 So I started my YouTube journey back in 2017 uploading mainly "reused" content - was doing well until YouTube started changing their monetization terms due to advertisers not being happy.

In 2019 - I found what's now called the "copy claim" method by accident while studying a competitor but quickly gave up on it in 2020 when distros started catching up/banning accounts.

As you know by now - all well-known distros like (Tunecore, DistroKid, CD Baby, Audiam, RouteNote etc.) will ban you as soon as you hit ~$1k. (Have +$20k withheld by Tunecore atm)

Curious how you guys are currently monetizing your "reused" content for ads?

From my recent research I can see there are 3 main methods:

1) YPP (if you're working with an MCN that allows such content - or know someone who can grant you CMS rights.)

2) Music copy claim (if you can work directly with an established artist whom you can register music under to use the method with minimum issues.)

3) Audiovisual copy claim (if you can work directly with a creator under an MCN and use their copyrighted footage in your vids - they mainly work with compilation channels tho.)
