    I know this happens when an IP has signed up too many accounts lately. But do you guys know how long it takes for that restriction to go away (if it even does go away?).

    I just bought a couple private VPNs to test out, and both had the same issue. I'm assuming the last VPN user had been using them to create Youtube accounts too. Is it possible I will be able to create the accounts without verification anytime soon?

    I think once the account is flagged the restriction just stays there. You mean how long till the IP is removed from the blacklist? Probably 72 hours or so, depending on how bad the abuse was.
