Videos being constantly declined for monetization

Hi.  I produce content for and lately our videos have been encountering a problem of being declined for monetization with the following message:

"Thanks for submitting your videos for monetization. We have disabled monetization on the following videos because we were not able to verify that you have the appropriate commercial use rights for all included content"

However the videos in question are either completely original content (including original music, art and voice over), or are video game tutorials and reviews.   We haven't been experiencing this problem until recently.

Two questions then:

1)  Is there anywhere we can get help on this? (as it is impacting our site and income which we need to grow)
2)  How long does it usually take youtube to respond typically after submitting a rights claim. (As our content is time sensitive news a lot of the time, we can't wait all the time)

Thanks for the help!
