YouTube and Google have many giant fish to fry every day - more
than any of one of us could possibly imagine, including things like
lawsuits, copyrights, federal privacy laws, licensing, broadcasting,
intellectual properties, competition, software development, money,
international regulations, China, advertising, legal issues, etc.
As such, YouTube isn't that great at dealing with issues they may
consider trivial or pedantic. At least, you "flagged" the video, right?
YouTube has people monitoring flagged videos 24 hours a day, so
if your issue is something that they would have deemed serious or
of grave consequence, that particular video would have been taken
"off the air" immediately, even if there was doubt about the validity
of your claim. For example, videos showing graphic violence, rape,
torture or pornography are gone in a "flash". Hopefully you weren't
in a video like that, or a victim of one of those.
If your issue is something milder like someone showing a video of
you in an embarrassing or compromising situation, you may have
to wait considerably longer.
You can try to write them an email at '[email protected]
they actually prefer that people use their internal reporting system.
Here are their form and instructions, whose URL addresses I have
written-out in full for you, followed by their direct links:
-- privacy complaint form
help . youtube . com / support / youtube / bin / request . py ? page = & contact _ type = privacy
-- privacy complaint guidelines
help . youtube . com / support / youtube / bin / topic . py ? topic = 13044
-- if the 1st link fails
help . youtube . com / support / youtube / bin / answer . py ? answer = 94633
If, for some reason, YouTube redirects my first link to some stupid
introduction page instead of where it is supposed to, click the 3nd
link which I've given you. From there, click the blue "continue" that
is in the 2nd paragraph.
If YouTube thinks your complaint does not warrant further follow-up,
I believe they won't send you an official reply message; maybe just
an auto-confirmation saying that they received your complaint form.
Good luck to you.
Go on their page or profile and at the bottom of the page find report background which is pretty much the same. And flag their video too which on the options for the video some where by favorites. Or you could just nicely tell that person to take that video off. If they say no for a while then cuss at them.
