View Full Version : How's this guy not banned from Youtube?

He goes by Ash Ketchum on Youtube. He's been on Youtube for 3 months now.
His channel is: https://www.youtube.com/user/PokeAsh0304/videos

He has uploaded every episode of every season of Pokemon ever created (that's 273 episodes). And this doesn't appear to be an official Nintendo operated Youtube channel. That makes this guy a TV-show pirate on a MASSIVE scale! I'd expect to find an episode dump like this on pirate torrent websites, but not on Youtube, especially given that Youtube has a content recognition system that recognizes video and audio and blocks any uploads that are flagged by the content recognition system. And I'm sure that all the Pokemon episodes are already in the content recognition system, given that it's such a major franchise. Yet it seems that none of his uploads have been removed or blocked in any way. Normally if you get 3 copyright violations, your account gets banned. Yet this guy has all the Pokemon episodes uploaded, and his account and videos are all operational! Normally when an account is banned, going to the Youtube channel of that account displays a message that the user has been banned. So I know he's not banned, because there is no such message, and none of his videos say they have been removed for copyright violation when they are played, so I know none of his videos have been removed.

I'm like WOW! How did he manage to get away with this act of piracy on such a large scale!?

I bet he's gonna get banned quite quickly now. I just reported this (and another similar) Youtube channel to the official company that owns the copyright for Pokemon (called the Pokemon Company, aka Pokemon LTD, who holds the ownership for Pokemon franchise, on behalf of Nintendo).

How are you not banned from here? And surprised you did it considering you didn't like when I did it to you.
