Odysee, and more broadly LBRY
Dtube, and more broadly IPFS
I'll have to check those out. Thanks.

My objection is not that they are policing their platform; indeed, that's exactly what they should be doing. My objection is that they gave me no warning but just shut me down. They did not give any indication as to what they think I did wrong and thus gave me no opportunity to explain myself or fix the problem, or even to show them that they were mistaken.

In legal terms, they have denied me due process. Yes, I know, they're a private company and they don't have to give me "due process." But angering your customers and treating them with arbitrary disdain is not a way to maintain a dominant position in one's industry. This sort of thing just opens them up to be challenged by competitors, or regulated in some way by the government. And it would serve them right.

But it’s in their agreement & what can be banned without warnings tho...because you keep asking why you didn’t get a warning & I’m assuming you have just the standard license agreement if you only have 1 video.

My fiancé is a lawyer...but I’ve had a You Tube channel for almost 8 yrs with almost a million followers, and I’ve never had a problem except for 1 demonetized video out of hundreds. edit: So...I don’t have any complaints.
