Why was my account suspended?

Any time YouTube receives notice that a video or any part of a video on our site infringes the copyrights of a third party, we will take it down from the site. We are required to do so by law. Accounts determined to be repeat infringers may be subject to termination. Users with suspended or terminated accounts are prohibited from creating new accounts or accessing YouTube's community features.

When material is removed due to a claim of copyright infringement, we send the user who uploaded the video an email notification containing the claimant of the video. If you have had a video removed, please check the email address that is associated with your YouTube account for this notification.

If you currently cannot access your account, you can learn more information about your restrictions here.

It may be the case that your account was suspended due to reasons other than copyright violations.

To understand all of YouTube's policies please see our Community Guidelines.
