YouTube and Video Takedowns
Gena from Create Video Notebook explains a bit about YouTube's Terms of Service that you might not be aware of. She explains how a number of videos were taken off the site over the holidays. Gena writes,
Over the 2012 holidays hundreds of YouTube users found that their videos have been deleted, their accounts terminated or their viewership hacked to bits or removed.
The most notable is Universal Music Group with a loss of 2 billion viewers and Sony Music/BMG with 850 million views vaporized.
