The issue in GetHuman-vasilibo's own words
My Channel "Vasilis Bourikas - DJ Golden Feta Official" was my Youtube channel with prominently Greek Music Compilation * Mixes. Another youtube channel under the name "Jacek Zarzycki" who takes drone videos, harassed me by threatening me to take down my videos because I included some of his drone videos of Santorini, Greece in my compilations. However, under the law, more specifically "fair use" and "fair dealing" laws, videos of "PUBLIC SPACES" (which Santorini is) cannot be copyrighted. Only videos which include original and*or creative content can be. These videos were nothing more than drone videos of a public space, published and shared to the public domain (Youtube) therefore allowed to be used in non-profitable ways by anyone of the general public.**What makes the situation even worse is that channel "Jacek Zarzycki" ignored all my messages* multiple emails, Facebook messages, etc, to retract his claims and*or settle the dispute. (Ex: me deleting select videos or monetary payment)**And even worse, since i got no response from my proposed retraction... I attempted to send a "counter notification"... I eventually ended up sending * Counter Notifications because every time, I continuously got THE SAME, AUTOMATED RESPONSE, that youtube suspected the following: "We are concerned that you may be misusing our counter notification process and because of this, we are unable to honour this request."*But I was NOT misusing the system and genuinely wanted to appeal the copyright claims and stop my channel from being deleted in * days , as stated in a previous email.**Earlier today, my channel "Vasilis Bourikas - DJ Golden Feta Official" was officially terminated, I have not yet been given my fair chance to appeal any claims and cannot get in contact with any human individuals working for youtube...**I would like this problem fixed by having my youtube channel recovered. As according to youtube's policy, I have not broken any rules, I do not profit financially from the channel, and I have spent years putting effort into the channel for the Greek & International community.**Please hear me out and help me bring my channel back.**Thank you so much,**Vasilis Bourikas
