This letter has been sent. I am still awaiting a response. I will resend this as many times as I need to. I feel that they must pay close attention to this information. Here is some additional information. You might as well read this:

A total of 4 pictures costed me 2 penalties. That does seem like a load of pishposh.

Only 2 rights holders claimed my videos, and they claim a whole lot of nonsense. TV TOKYO and WWE are the 3rd and 5th most protective rights holders on Youtube respectively, according to Youtomb, the figures may vary.

Naruto Shippuden episodes can be seen by subscribing to a sight for a fee. But this is Japanese only. I live in America where Shippuden isn't broadcasted on television. It is uncertain if it ever will be.

The WWE promo with the most video uploads is the finale of the 01/19/09 episode of RAW, involving Randy Orton kicking Mr. McMahon in the head. The most watched video is entitled "WWE Chairman's Head Kicked Off" with over 700,000 views.

The 4th penalty provided no specifics on what it is about. Neither have I been fined or any legal action in that nature.

When you go to this link above to request your reasons behind your suspensions, they still won't tell you about exactly what you have violated.

When you demand that you don't want "Robby" to reply to you, they will give you the same exact "copy and paste" response. The only difference is that the word "Robby" is deleted.

I'm certain the only reason why they can't tell me is because they know they've made a mistake. They don't want to admit they make mistakes because perhaps they deleted all of my videos into kingdom come instead of just keeping them hidden. If they told me they were proven wrong and that they got rid of all my videos, then I could sue them for sabotaging my end of material. Clearly that is something they would not admit, considering their guidelines are fractured and their support is just half way effective.

When they tell you that they aren't your attorneys, they forgot to mention one more thing. They have personal beliefs and opinions that they claim are facts and tied in to law. An opinion is a generally held view that's not directly held down by positive knowledge. A fact is a proven truth or a statistic.

The DMCA and the RIAA claim to fine people for 6 digit amounts of money for one measly file. For the cost of sharing an mp3 and get caught, I could abduct 9 children, steal 96 CDs, start 4 dog fights, stalk someone, or possible murder 4 people, and the fine for file sharing would STILL be worth more. You know that this is ludicrous.

 NameAddressCityUSAEmailYouTube, LLC901 Cherry Ave.San Bruno, CA 94066USAApril 27, 2009Dear YouTube representative,I had over 900,000 video views, over 300 subscribers and over 2 and a half yearsworth of videos. Last month, however, my account that is nearly three years old becamedisabled. I could no longer access my account or see my own videos. My user name was"joey368". This happened about 11:00PM on March 15th and I was not able to log onthroughout early evening. I understand about the rights holders claiming what is theirs.However nobody should try to stop me from letting my imagination unfold and share mycreations with others. Would anybody from YouTube know how long it takes to makeover 150 videos? Does anybody even appreciate the great effort that one contributes ontoYouTube? Since I don’t have any of them anymore, apparently not. I would like to tellmy experience with my suspension to a person, rather than a computer, because I have afeeling that more than one penalty against my account were misunderstandings. If it werecomprehensible that I made clear violations, I would not bother to try to lift mysuspension. Now with Google taking over it may not be all right to have such an openimagination, after all. I was proud of all my videos. I got a lot of which had views by thetens of thousands and I had a good feeling I would keep them all and I just could notafford to lose everything. I believe that YouTube lacks compassionate understanding, thatthey do not hesitate before they would wipe out my entire library without even giving methe chance to explain myself. I am certain that this is because that most of its staff onlineare just computers. Now that is what I think is not right, and not the mature andresponsible thing to do. I do not believe that the law told YouTube to remove everyvideo. If those videos are important to them, it is like the law wants to rip they're heartsout. In that case yes, I do find most of my videos important to me, because I feel honoredfor what I have accomplished and received very positive feedback from my demographic.
 
I do acknowledge the Community Guidelines. Regardless, let me tell you aboutmy situations. Because incase you have not noticed, God did not create law, man createdlaw. Enforcing laws as if they were real over the Internet just does not mix. That's for sure. There are some rights holders that enforce these laws, and there are some that donot. It was not easy to tell for me with a variety of videos that I uploaded. I know it’s notup to YouTube to decide what right holders claim, but it had the power to disable myaccount. Therefore, I feel I should address this to whom it may concern. I have nothing personal against TV TOKYO or the WWE either because they just happened to havestricter policies regarding their material. Additionally, I was not even informed on whymy account is suspended like I am supposed to know. I have the right to know. Neither doI hold any grudges on YouTube. I found out after I sent a request to reopen my account. Areply came by Robby, who I can tell is not a human, to show me my penalties. Penalty 1:"Undertaker's Falcon Punch" formerly athttp://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=VhxD5uKwh1QRemoved due to a copyright claim by a third party on 08/18/2008  Nobody ever told me that this was a penalty. It never did say my account was notin good standing afterwards. My friend who also has an account on YouTube told me thatthe system for penalties has changed a few days after I got suspended, and that accountswill now have two statuses instead of one. One was for violating rules, and one for infringing copyright. Nonetheless, they also said that penalties expire in six months time,therefore this penalty should not have counted. It was a thirty-five second video of amatch between Mark Calaway, also known as Undertaker and Adam Copeland, alsoknown as Edge with the audio of "Falcon Punch" included.A similar video by “BrianBDemaine” got away with it, where Chris Jericho(Chris Irvine) punched Shawn Michaels's (Michael Hickenbottom’s) wife at the sameevent and it was uploaded around the same time as mine did.Penalty 2:"John Cena wins the World Heavyweight Championship" formerly athttp://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=oFvtIUmpfuwRemoved due to a copyright claim by a third party on 11/24/2008Again, nobody informed me that this was a penalty. But I think it is the mostunprofessional claim that I have ever heard of. Out of the hundreds of thousands of WWEvideos, recent or archived on YouTube, the one that they chose to remove it a lightheartedtext-to-speech video. Not to be offensive, but is it that difficult for them to search“WWE” in YouTube’s search bar and see what they can find to be virtually their material? This video literally was a single image with a speech engine (ex:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7eEk2fVfUd0
 
), and WWE is trying to tell me thatthey would own videos like that? You would not call that being protective; you would callthat being cheap. John Cena is a multiple time champion. Whenever he is a champion, heusually holds the title for a large period of time. I e-mailed the WWE
 
) about this penalty. I asked why it’s worth it to claim a single photo when they have several more photos of almost the same thing. Do they believethese kinds of videos are going to cause them a financial downfall? This does not makesense to me and my only logical explanation to why they would claim my video is just because they can. But they could be unaware that they are possibly abusing the system.The choice was theirs to avoid more violating videos and choose to remove mine.There is no reason for me to stop investigating on the matter. They have not replied to mymessage. If you do not believe me, look for this video.You would agree that it is a very naive act of desperation. The CEO of the WWE,Vince McMahon has been known to be very egotistical, and some decisions that he hasmade are based on his own satisfaction (ex: He cancelled a house show in Alabama because he did not like the city) but either by WWE or YouTube, I think I have been liedto. If these were to be real penalties for me they should have informed me, which they didnot.WWE, believe it or not, also has a YouTube account.(http://www.YouTube.com/user/WWEFanNation) I was informed that this account has been suspended more than once. If you can find out what for, I would like to know. I havesent another e-mail to WWE about the issue at permission@wwe.com, but I did not get areply. "Penalty" 3:"Naruto Shippuden 4th season - "For You"" formerly athttp://www.YouTube.com/watch?v=DC3sZ_DX9UcRemoved due to a copyright claim by TV TOKYO Corporation on 03/16/2009This was the one that got it for me, however. I did see much of “NarutoShippuden” on YouTube. And it was being strongly tolerated with the videos being up for weeks. My video was only the intro, which I do say is "blood-boiling" that they let thishappen. To my surprise, I did not expect it. TV TOKYO said that they were to remove theepisodes that were uploaded. They did not mention any intros or credits. I understand thatthe proper way to watch a show is on television, or otherwise on the Internet. That’s howthe network gets profits. But the intro to the show? I believe they could claim this video,so therefore they did. I am not jumping to any conclusions and I don’t see the worth inwatching a show just for the introduction part. There are other videos currently uploadedthat they have either ignored or did not notice, some of which include footage of the introand/or the closing credits. Naruto Shippuden hasn’t even aired in North America yet, andmight not ever. I find this as an excuse or a scapegoat for a penalty to ban users fromuploading any more. I even had this in my description.
Naruto Shippuden © Masashi Kishimoto / Studio Pierrot / TV TOKYO
Deviantart on one hand also features the DMCAs guidelines for copyright. If Iwere to upload a work of art related to this, I would have to add this in my description.Whether it would be concept art, cosplay, fan fiction, flash, or even characters in abusivesituations.
