    My facebook page with over 100k likes was removed yesterday.

    We had spent thousands in advertising and been building likes on this since March.

    I have sent an email to the team which I THINK are responsible for handling these matter but Facebook make that sort of thing so difficult it probably won't even be read!

    We weren't a page that posted adult content or memes, we were a legit brand with website that had the same name.

    Has anybody had experience with this? What is the best process to try and get the page back? Should I cut my losses and start another page?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    What was the exactly reason?

    Did you copy pasted videos / pictures or why did you get a copyright issue?

    We took UFC videos and edited them, usually just seconds of footage, into another video, to make a "highlight reel"

    We did have several warnings and 3 day bans but many were bogus from people simply claiming copyright when there wasn't

    One of the big bans we had was from posting a viral video which we later learned was owned by ViralHog... 30 day ban.

    Zuffa are aggressive on copyright, especially highlights and what have you, WME -IMG is probabaly going to keep that consistency, especially after their 4 billion purchase of the UFC.
