    Hi,

    OK, I hope this is not a duplicate question. I've searched on the forum but could not find a thread on this subject.

    I've heard in some places that buying YouTube accounts is illegal? Is that true? If so, what is the risk?

    Thanks,
    Polgarine

    Buying and selling of almost anything is not illegal (unless the something is "sex" in some countries). However I believe it may be against their terms of service which is a different thing to being illegal.

    Basically this means you have almost zero chance of being thrown in jail for it, but you are a pretty high chance to get your account closed if you get caught. That said, i'm sure it happens all the time with no hassles.

    Well every Coin has two side and all it matters where are you standing if you see things from Google's Respective then its certainly is not Legal but when you see stuff from a blackhats point of view they are very much legal as you need them to generate good views,comments to drag your Position up on Youtube SEO

    Doubt seriously that there's a legal issue involved, but if you're caught by Google they're probably not the best company in the webworld to be pissing off. From a financial perspective any action they take could affect you a lot worse than having a crusading district attorney after you.
