    Anyone know a way around this? MY vids are different, so it's not duplication. The music used is allowed, and the video itself is just random images with music. But some, around 30-40% of my videos are being automatically rejected.

    Are copyright owners(in this case sofware companies) getting certain keyword and word combinations flagged and pulled instantly?

    I didn't used to have this problem :(

    Even worse, just went back over 10 accounts. 6 of them have every video removed as 'Rejected (content inappropriate)'

    Can anyone offer any suggestions? I didn't run into these issues in the past

    The videos are of Software, in the description is a link to download said software from my website. A typical video would be a still image/screen shot of the software in question with some music overlayed and a message that the download link is in the video description.

    I get the images from Google Images, yep. I can't see how that would be problematic though. My old accounts used the same method and never had these problems, infact alot of my old accounts are intact with videos still public.

    It's not sharecash, it's direct links to my websites.

    Don't put direct links to your websites on the description. use bit.ly or tinyurl to shorten them.

    Does that do anything to prevent videos being removed or is it just general advice? I always personally viewed bit.ly and tinyurl links as looking spammy, as users don't know what they're masking.

    I'll take your advice though
