Because of a targeted assault by a troll, the platform has decided to remove a YouTuber’s channel despite the fact that they are in no way responsible for the situation.
Although the copyright policy on YouTube is intended to safeguard intellectual property, it appears that the website has created a gaping vacuum that may be exploited by trolls.
It would appear that, for the time being, it does not provide an adequate level of protection against false claims.
This indicates that anybody acting as the owner of the copyright can claim specific property as their own, even if there is insufficient proof to support their claim.
This was something that YouTube user Jay Kay had to learn the hard way after he received three copyright strikes, which ultimately led to the termination of his channel.
On June 2, Jay Kay tweeted about the issue, disclosing the specifics of the termination of his channel and expressing his anger with the site.
After troll abuses YouTube regulations, channel is removed.
According to Jay Kay, who provided the explanation, “I have contacted [YouTube] about this a few times, starting with when my channel received the first strike.”
However, the platform did not appear to be able to handle the issue in a timely manner, and as a result, the YouTuber’s channel was finally deleted.
The fact that Jay Kay is a member of the band ‘Lostwave’ is like salt in an open wound. A community with the goal of giving credit to songs that are currently in circulation but have not been identified or claimed by any one artist.
The community is working to bring attention to these songs in the hopes that it will encourage the artist to come forward.
On the other hand, Jay Kay has asserted that he is not the only ‘Lostwave’ station that has been subjected to erroneous copyright strikes.
He said on his Twitter account, “I was not the only one, but so far I was the only one terminated.”
The laws governing content moderation on digital platforms can occasionally be used by creative trolls to their advantage.
And as Jay Kay learned the hard way on YouTube, automatic systems aren’t always suited to safeguard content producers, as the example of Jay Kay demonstrates.
