It means your videos could have copyrighted material in it.

You must make sure your videos do NOT have any traces of copyrighted material in it.

It could a brand logo, a few seconds of a popular tune, even your own audio recordings of copyrighted material (for instance from a popular book).

Even a short clip from video games, movies, television shows, or screenshots of logos or software can trigger disable the no-advertisement settings.

Check through all your video clips for any sign of those copyright things which I have just mentioned.

If you think your videos do not have any of those copyright materials, yet you still see adverts on them, you can create a support ticket with YouTube Google to review them.

Get them to tell you where are the so-called offending parts of the video.
