YouTube Suddenly Bans a Small Business Owner’s Account YouTube unexpectedly terminated the account of a small business owner and blogger without notice or explanation. Paul Chakursky is a software engineer who decided to venture into the field of online entertainment and video production. Paul wrote an open letter to YouTube asking for explanation and reactivation of his account. Las Vegas, Nevada - October 03, 2012 -- Paul is a recent start-up enthusiast moving forward with his dreams and ideas of offering a high value to the general public. His channel views count is about 2,500 since Mid-March of 2012, totaling over 40 videos. Paul’s goal is to please and entertain the public with his videos. It was very unpleasant to see that YouTube flagged two of his affiliate videos as violating the community guidelines and blocked the access to them. When trying to view the video content users were prompted with the following message: “This video has been removed as a violation of YouTube’s policy against spam, scams and commercially deceptive content. Sorry about that.” Paul’s channel was operational for more than six months before it was terminated. Paul writes on his blog in an Open Letter to YouTube, “I am new to the video-marketing, but coming with enthusiasm, respecting your guidelines and procedures, putting many hours of creative inspirational work, realizing my dreams of offering valuable products and services to the general public.” He makes his point that if there was an explanation and time opportunity Paul would certainly fix it right away. Notably Paul is not alone, with other well-known bloggers and enthusiasts David Jenyns (davidjenyns.com) and Darren Rowse (problogger.net) having their accounts terminated over the summer of 2011. Scott Colby, The Abs Expert from Colorado, had his account terminated in the fall of 2011. "I'm stunned having built a great reputation within the YouTube community," Dave commented in his open letter to YouTube. “I didn’t believe it at first – we’ve been together so long,” Darren remarked in his open letter. Scott, in his open letter, noted that “I made special attention to respect YouTube's community, follow their guidelines and only upload my best material.” David, Darren and Scott got their accounts reactivated and now they are talking on how to prevent future mishaps. The big picture, according to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zs6IzWhiuB4, is YouTube does not like accounts that are not using their massive advertising platform. It is more of a reaction as to how the account holders are using it. To read more about this story, click here and please show your support. ###
