How My Life's Work Disappeared Into A YouTube Loophole And Why You Could Be Next!
PLEASE DOWNLOAD THIS VIDEO!
I've spent the better part of 8 years uploading videos to youtube, with over 3000 completed works, garnering me a subscriber base of 23,000 and nearly 5 million views.
That was, until I received 3 false copyright strikes on the 7th of August, 30th of September and the 27 of October 2015 respectively.
I was then given 7 days notice by youtube that my channel would be deleted.
However, despite appealing all 3 false complaints, on the 30th of October my channel was taken down early for unknown reasons.
On the 31st of October
I notified people via Facebook that the channel was deleted,
As of today, 2nd November 2015, no response from youtube staff has been logged and the channel is still down.
The attempts by my listeners to contact the complaints and nicely ask them to remove the false copyright complaints has revealed that at least one of them filed 2 complaints maliciously with the intention of having me deleted off the internet for personal reasons as screen shots of conversations with this individual confirm
Because of this malicious act, I’ve been irrevocably financially impacted,
The content of the videos and who flagged them is inconsequential in hindsight as it highlights a loophole in the YouTube copyright complaint form.
This was only achieved because I dedicated my entire being to giving the activists and researchers in my country and the world the coverage I felt they deserved, THAT, in my humble opinion, is the #1 most important use of youtube in the modern age, not to just have access to great entertainment, but also direct access to an audience by those with important issues to discuss whom are unable to afford to buy their own multinational media conglomerate.
In the meantime please go to www.youtube.com/eastwoodvincent and subscribe to my much smaller backup channel for further updates.
Please download this video and upload it to your own youtube channels and please send this message around the world, everybody who earns an income from YouTube needs to watch this video because again, if this can happen to me, it can happen to any one of you and that threat will remain until this loophole is closed.
If you want to help me, go to www.change.org and sign the petition to get my youtube channel restored. https://www.change.org/p/google-youtube-google-restore-vinny-eastwood-s-youtube-channel-now?recruiter=12933665&utm_source=share_for_starters&utm_medium=copyLink
