I just deleted my YouTube account - well, the videos, I'm keeping the account because it's like getting a new cellphone having to copy all the info over or whatever. Reason being is I was recently accused by GoDigital Media Group of copyright infringement - this claim was false - but because of YouTube's ineffectual policies and no way to properly defend my claim, they opted to place ads on my video - for which I assume YouTube gets revenue from. I don't know about that last part, but I don't see the point of doing it otherwise.
So, they won't remove the ads, I removed the videos. I'm currently moving my videos to another site and eventually they'll be hosted on my own site. So YouTube can piss off.
