    If I copy youtube videos, can I get banned? Obviously I won't copy rwj or smosh or anyone famous. Just some small time gamer videos with commentary.

    Will youtube ban me for this?

    In the short term it's hard to say, maybe if the guy becomes big, or finds the videos and flags it, but in the long term i'd say definetly yes. I don't see what the point of this would be though? If you try to get famous with his shit then he could easily sue you and win, he probbaly won't go that far unless you hit the jackpot but you never know.

    Dude, this is Black Hat Forum.
    If they ban you, register again, in fact what you want to do is make a script that will register you on youtube and start downloading everything, with 1000 accounts :)

    nope , not instantly , Guy whose video you have copied will file a DMCA and your video will be taken down , however If It happens more than couple of times , then your account will be banned.

    The right answer is yes and no. If it's the kind of vids you said, you should be ok for a while and even more than that. If not, let the blackhat blood from you do its job :D

    Yes, sooner or later your copied videos will get deleted. It is always better to make your own unique videos and watermark them with an easy to remember URL.
