    I was wondering if anyone knew how this can be done? It seems a competitor has been taking down my videos so I need to return the favor. What I am seeing is either a suspended account, removed video overall, or blocked for US traffic. I am guessing its mainly done by flagging but would like to know for sure. If you can help just post or PM me and I can make it worth your time. Sorry if this has been posted about before btw I couldn't really find anything useful.

    Its just a matter of complaints. A few complaints from a few accounts will do the trick. Most of the time YouTube will not follow up on exactly who is right and they find it easier just to delete the video instead doing an investigation. I assume its because they would need to hire a staff of 100K in order to deal with each case. Its much better to delete !! Problem gone!!

    It's really not as easy as you make it out to be. Typically what will happen is that they'll review the video and make a very quick judgment, once that judgment has been made, all further complaints will be disregarded.

    Example: If you spam a video with copyright infringement flags, they'll look at the video once, decide if it violates anything, and all the other complaints are instantly discarded.

    More complaints won't heighten your chances of success, it'll only bring more attention to the video so it will be reviewed quicker.
