    Wondering if this is possible or not. Considering that my video is legitimately showing people how to download and install a program. The only negative factor is the download link is PPD, but the file on the other end of the PPD is real. I also state in the video and desc that they may need to complete a survey in order to download the files.

    Any thoughts? Otherwise that sure is making it pretty impossible to succeed with PPD for me. $3 for the views, $3.50 for the likes, then all the work of adding fake comments, etc. And only ended up making $8 before the video got removed. What's to say that if I go larger scaled that the videos won't even break even.

    I would forget about appealing in your case. I've had legit videos with zero links to anything or fake views struck for TOS violations and the appeal was basically ignored (Though the rest of my videos stayed up). By appealing in your case you will probably only draw greater attention to yourself and you do not want that.

    Honestly you might as well spend your time creating and uploading another video.

    YT is notorious for being hard to appeal to.

    You really believe that your video is legitimate, when you are earning money on a piece of software, which you do not own? :)
    Don't even bother with appealing, youtube has low tolerance for PPD these days.

    Unfortunately most PPD are against YouTube Terms of Service. Don't appeal, just wait for 6 months for the strike to expire
