OK. Now I'm really steaming...WTF YOUTUBE!? WHY DID YOU DELETE MY ENTIRE ACCOUNT WITHOUT WARNING!?
I just checked my Yahoo e-mail account, and in there it said that they removed my Ryuusei no Rockman fanvid for copyright infringement. So when I read that, I was kinda like, "Meh, whatever. That's expected for animé music videos." So then I go to Youtube, and I'm not signed in, which I found to be weird since I have it set to have me logged in all the time. So then when I manually sign in, all it says is, "Your account has been permanently disabled."
What. the. HELL!? Based on the timestamp, they sent the e-mail about my RnR video today at 1:25 AM. Now, if this was me a few days ago, yes. I would've seen that e-mail not too long after they sent it because I was up until as late as 5:30 AM some nights before I finally felt sleepy. But now that I'm back in a normal sleeping pattern, how the HELL was I supposed to have the chance to be able to delete the rest of infringing videos? (Not that I would have because I had my Psych vid up since '06 without a single warning.)
Honestly, they send an e-mail about deleting one video, and yet they DON'T send an e-mail about deleting an entire account!?YOUTUBE = MAJOR FAIL IN THE COPYRIGHT DEPARTMENT.
Seriously just...GAH!!! I had over 200 favorites saved there. Some of them which I'll probably never get back because I might've completely forgotten what they were called. And my Psych video had over 15,000 views! And now the proof of that is entirely gone!According to their stupid Copyright section
, apparently all of my videos did fall under one of the things listed. And I thought uploading videos of concerts filmed yourself where you were allowed to film them yourself WERE allowed, but apparently not. So I probably got deleted for having 4 videos of the Patent Pending concert. Otherwise, if I just only had the Psych video I might've been safe from them. But who knows. They might've still banned me anyway because they're dicks when it comes to video removals.
Honestly, you don't see them going around deleting all of the Rick Astley "Never Gonna Give You Up" videos that people post in order to do Rick Rolls on other people. In fact, they apparently even pulled the ultimate prank on April Fool's Day this year by making every video link be directed to the Rick Astley video. And considering that it's a music video, shouldn't that be copyright infringement?YOU'RE SUCH A FREAKING HYPOCRITE YOUTUBE. YOU'RE BREAKING YOUR OWN RULES WITHOUT REALIZING IT/DOING ANYTHING ABOUT IT.
