Unfortunately, in the few cases where I have put up a Rocksmith playthrough video and it gets a worldwide block like that ... I think pretty much the only thing to do is give up (at least as far as that single video on YouTube is concerned).


I don't monetize YouTube videos.  The very idea of that disgusts me, actually.  I personally feel like Rocksmith playthrough videos are / should be fair use, for several different reasons.  Not for profit, educational, etc.  Not to mention that they basically serve as free advertising for the artists / albums /songs in question.  But, I don't have time, money, or lawyers to debate these things.  Record companies do.  So, YouTube (unfortunately in my opinion) pretty much HAS to err on the side of caution to avoid legal / financial repercussions.


In the meantime, if you really want to fight the good fight and keep up videos that YouTube blocks on DMCA grounds, I think pretty much the only viable option is to take them to a competing host that is more lax about enforcing that nonsense.  LiveLeak seems to be a popular alternative for hosting clips of TV shows that YouTube pulls (Daily Show, etc.), so maybe it would work for this purpose also.  In my case, I generally don't care enough to bother...  Although perhaps I should.
