UPDATED 11/21/2011 @ 6:00PM EST - WE'RE BACK @ http://www.youtube.com/user/ocremix, THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!



  • Our YouTube account has been suspended without warning for “spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content”.
  • We don’t spam, we don’t scam, and since we’re not selling music but giving it away for free, it’s pretty much impossible for us to be commercially deceptive.
  • Hundreds of hours of unpaid labor went into uploading thousands of videos to help spread a love & appreciation for video game music - without any warning or explanation, Google/YouTube have removed that work, possibly due to the actions of a few individuals - we can only guess, since they provide no details!
  • Basically, the same thing happened to Darren Rowse (@Problogger): http://bit.ly/kbkQnj - we agree & echo everything he says, and we couldn’t have said it better ourselves. We love YouTube. Why did they break up with us? :-D
  • We NEED YOUR HELP in letting YouTube know that OC ReMix’s account, used for ReMix previews, album trailers, and more, doesn’t spam, scam, or “commercially deceive” anyone.
  • HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO: Tweet at YouTube: This is one of the things Darren said could help. We need EVERYONE who supports OCR to send the tweet at YouTube so they’ll realize we’re legit and will restore the account.

Would you mind if I wrote them instead of tweeting?

Please go ahead; part of the reason we're having users tweet is that the Internet is full of horror stories of people waiting 10+ days for a response, or never getting one, so anything that is legal, civil, and likely to have some sort of effect is worth pursuing.

Geez, this is really unsettling. Hopefully it was just a misunderstanding that can be cleared up. But with all the talk of internet censorship lately, the whole thing makes me very uncomfortable.

Totally disappointed at YouTube for their action here - shame on Google! Whatever caused this, I hope they find a way to address this and improve it so it doesn't affect legitimate accounts.

Also tweeted, though I don't use twitter that much so I'm not sure the extent of which it will help.

Pretty disappointed in YouTube but honestly it doesn't really surprise me (the fact that YouTube would pull something like this that is).

Have you checked your email (including spam) telling you which video caused it.

Apparently it's standard YouTube procedure to tell you which video is was.

I would do the same (partly because I don't have a Twitter account, and partly because I hope there isn't a character limit), but I'm having trouble finding a "general" contact form.

I'd imagine this suspension is just a minor mistake.

Same here. Anyone know the correct place to email them?

This is the only place I found that was talking about being able to e-mail them.

Otherwise there was also:

http://www.youtube.com/t/contact_us

Which has a few different resources.

Not sure if any of that is what you're looking for though.

Retweeted. I only have 32 followers...over half of whom have never heard of OCR. Hope it works.

EDIT: Just for fun we should include #OccupyYouTube

Yeah, it's looking like email isn't a great option...I assume djp has already contacted them with a dispute anyway.
Good luck with the tweets!
