How to protect privacy on YouTube
One of the main problems facing YouTube is the videos that violate intellectual property rights. Google (the current owner of the platform) tries to block and remove clips that break the law, but given the number of users who upload videos, it makes the task very difficult and time-consuming.
YouTube has faced legal proceedings for videos that were offensive or incited violence.
If you cannot reach an agreement with it, you can request the removal of content. To do this, the first thing to do is log into your YouTube or Google account and go to the specific video you want to report.
Once the content has been located, it is necessary to open the video and from the bottom click on the More option, which is represented by three dots in a line. Once this menu is displayed, you must choose the Report option, displaying a series of options to choose from as the reason you want to report or block the video.
Among the many options for reasons for reporting, we must choose the option Infringement of my rights. Next, a drop-down list will be displayed to indicate a little more about the detail of the complaint, being able to choose if it is made for infringing my own copyright rights, invasion of privacy or making another type of legal claim.
In this case, you must click on the Privacy Violation option and click on the button below to the right of Send.
Then. The complaint request is sent and it only remains to wait for YouTube to confirm its elimination later. Otherwise, it is convenient to contact the platform itself from its website’s Contact option.
