YouTube’s Community Police

I recently came across this article by TechCrunch about an “innocent” YouTube account holder losing their account and content. A lot of ministries rely on YouTube. I see people hosting sermons, videos of special services, pastor vlogs, and a whole lot of other stuff.

What happens when YouTube’s policy enforcers decide you violate their terms?

They lock your account, and delete your videos. Now, don’t get me wrong, they have every right to do so, and the service agreement (that you click without reading) tells you so.

But, what happens if their policy all of the sudden deems religious content ban-worthy? Do you have a backup for your video content?
