Sorry for signing up with the intention of asking a question and little more, but I've started a YouTube channel that effectively impersonates another. I've made no claims that I am the proper owner, but it is implied. I can see this channel going down the drain, and I'm okay with that, but links can easily be made to many other YouTube channels of mine, or worse, entire Google accounts. If action is taken, could all my channels be thrown off the site? This channel is non-profit - others aren't. I've already done some research and it looks grim. "In cases where our team determines that an account was established to impersonate another channel or individual, the account will be removed." - support.google.com/youtube/answer/2801947?hl=en "This account has been terminated due to a violation of YouTube's policy prohibiting impersonation." - youtube.com/user/CutiePieMarzia1/ "if one of your channels ever gets terminated then say goodbye to all of them." - quora.com/Does-a-copyright-strike-on-one-channel-affect-my-other-channels-for-YouTube But I have seen contradictions. Can anyone confirm? (would have used hyperlinks, but spam protection) EDIT: Would adding "unofficial" or something to that effect in the channel name be enough to get away with the whole impersonation aspect?
