    This guy may be endangering your accounts soon if not stopped.
    In Youtube search field perform a keyword search on 'maketubevideos'
    and see the hundreds of channel names this channel is spamming hourly. The 'so called' companies channel name is maketubevideos and they are finding EVERY CHANNEL hitting ANY honors categories and creating a quick vid with that channels name as the video name - and then makes an AD SPAM video about that channel.

    Hopefully, this will not make YT look at the channels being copied. If they do, and your copied and your using blackhat methods, watch out fro your account.

    This guy is disguising videos as channel 'x' rocks OR channel 'z' is great. But it is all a HUGE SPAM MARKETING TACTIC. If there was anyone who needed to get hundreds of their vids flagged, its these guys because they endanger the little guy trying to get into the top honors categories.

    DO THE REAEARCH FOR YOURSELF and make sure their not spamming your channel name as a fake ad video.

    FYI- I am not posting this to get people to flag somoene's videos. I am saying do the reearch and see if your being spammed. This channel wont last long b4 it is suspended. Just if your channel is copied, do what it take make sure your channel isnt implicated.

    There are 4'600 results for "maketubevideos" as of 12:44 pm MST. I see what you mean. The title of the videos he posts are channel names of youtube users. For sure it will get suspended.

    He has completely outsmarted YouTube and is getting legitimate accounts banned. YouTube's idiotic suspension policies will not change any. Unfortunately.
