UPDATED! YouTube Account RESTORED!


Recommended Posts

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

  1. Our YouTube account has been suspended without warning for “spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content”.
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. CLICK THIS LINK to tweet at YouTube: http://bit.ly/RestoreOCRsYouTube

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.

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?

http://www.google.com/support/youtube/bin/request.py?hl=en&contact_type=contact_policy&policy=yt&rd=1

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.

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!

There was probably a deaf guy who saw every OC ReMix video as it was posted, saw that each one was exactly the same thing, and flagged them all. I know that sounds silly but anything is possible.

Also Youtube is only like 30% to blame, this was people who reported OCR's vids... :-(

Youtube is partially to blame because they don't actually look into any claims, and they do let improper copyright claims go through constantly, as mentioned earlier.
