Youtube has finally taken a step further in its war against fake views, deleting thousands of videos that received ‘unnatural’ views during the past few months. Each of these users received a warning email clearly stating that this is a breach of Youtube terms of service and that if they are caught again, their account will be terminated.
Here is an excerpt from the email: “This following video was found in Violation of TOU #4 Section H: ‘You agree not to use or launch any automated system, including without limitation, robots, spiders, or offline readers, that accesses the Service in a manner that sends more request messages to the YouTube servers in a given period of time than a human can reasonably produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser.”
This has created some controversy as some users claiming to never have bought views also had their videos deleted, and they have no way to contact Youtube to make an ‘appeal’ and have their video restored.

Universal Music and Sony, homes of all the major artists worldwide like Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Madonna, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Beyonce etc. had many of their videos deleted which added up to 2 Billion fake Youtube views. Read the full article in the Daily Mail byclicking here.
