YouTube: Terminated Channels

Bailey Bailey

If you have received an email from YouTube identifying that your channel has been terminated, you may be unable to use, own, or create any other YouTube channels or accounts. In the email sent to you, you will be provided with a reason as to why your channel was terminated.

Terminations are often the result of a violation of YouTube's Community Guidelines or copyright infringement. If you believe your channel was terminated in error, you have a couple of options on next steps depending on the nature of the termination:

  1. Community Guidelines: Fill out this form (only once), and ensure to include your Channel ID
  2. Copyright: Submit a counter notification 

If you feel that your channel was terminated due to channel hijacking, please reach out to for assistance or review this page.
