Content that incites others to harass or threaten individuals on or off YouTube. Content that encourages abusive fan behavior such as doxxing, dogpiling, brigading, or off-platform targeting. Content making implicit or explicit threats of physical harm or destruction of property against identifiable individuals. Videos violating other users' privacy or infringing on other users' rights will be removed from the site.
Harassment includes but is not limited to: threatening or harassing words and images; posting another user's personal information (such as their phone number or email address); sending unwanted messages (such as spam) to others; creating multiple accounts to post abuse or distract from it being watched/read by other users.
If you think something violates our rules, please use the report button found on every video page. Users can also send us confidential tips via private message. We will get back to you within 24 hours.
If a video is reported for serious misuse, such as predatory behavior, an account may be instantly deleted. YouTube videos that have been reported for harassment, impersonation, or bigotry can also be removed without a strike or warning. Videos that include copyrighted material remain on the site but use of its reporting system allows other users to flag them as inappropriate.
Reports do not normally result in action until they have been viewed by at least one person. Once this has occurred, if you continue to report the same video, we'll assume that you are not interested in hearing more about it and will not count your reports against your channel's limit.
There are two ways to report videos: via email or directly on YouTube. To send a report through email, click on the down arrow next to the video and select "Report video." You can optionally include a note explaining why you are reporting the video. YouTube will then send an email to the account holder listed in the YouTube user interface with a link to the report page.
You can also report videos by clicking on the three dots icon next to the video and selecting "Report video." This method is generally used when someone has posted a video you believe violates YouTube's guidelines but you want to file your own report separately from theirs.

In essence, three Community Guidelines strikes or three copyright strikes is what automatically terminates a channel. Youtube can also block channels without anybody reporting the channel in issue. According to Google, this happens "when multiple users report the channel for spammy behavior."
The number of reports doesn't affect whether or not your channel will be blocked. Rather, it determines how quickly Youtube will remove you from its platform.
Channels can receive three copyright strikes within 24 hours of each other and still be online. However, if the fourth strike occurs after 12 months have passed since the third strike, then that channel will be terminated.
Here's how many people need to report you before your channel gets terminated: one report from any user will result in your channel being reviewed by Youtube's community team. If the community team feels like you've violated their guidelines, they can choose to disable your account or send you notification to change your behaviour. If you continue to break rules, another user could report you again. The more reports your channel receives, the closer you are to getting terminated.
In conclusion, you could get banned from YouTube with just one video that violates one of its terms of service. Even if you edit your video and make sure it doesn't repeat itself again, you might still get reported.
Content demonetization, often known as the "Adpocalypse" by content creators, is the process by which content providers are denied paid adverts in their YouTube videos. As a result, they are refused revenue and their earnings on the video-hosting platform are diminished. The aim of this policy is to allow Google to improve the quality of its service for its users.
Here's how it works: You upload a video that gets flagged for containing ads. You then receive an email from YouTube stating that your video has been labeled as "demonetizable content". From here on out, any user who tries to monetize their video will see this message appear on top of it.
YouTube claims that videos containing adult content or copyrighted material are more likely to be targeted for demonetization. However, many popular YouTubers have found ways around this restriction by creating "mirror videos", which are identical to their original videos except for some small changes such as changing the language or replacing some images with ones from other sources. For example, one user created a mirror version of Taylor Swift's video for "Bad Blood" where all references to brands were replaced with words like "censorship" and "free speech". This video received over 1 million views without being detected by YouTube's machine learning software.
Because of the risk of losing income, many creators try to find alternative ways to fund their videos.
