YouTube Finally Caves and Gives Gavin McInnes His Account Back
After days of refusing to reinstate his account, even after it was proven the copyright claim against him was bogus, YouTube has finally caved and given Gavin McInnes his channel back.
McInnes has been the victim of a prolonged and ruthless attack on his character by the liberal media.
The account had been banned after Yellow Brand Protection erroneously put in a copyright violation claim against McInnes on behalf of Vans. When contacted by email, the company told McInnes that it was done by mistake and that they would be retracting the claim.
Dear Mr. McInnes,
I can assure you this was not intentional. We are a brand protection company. We are not in cahoots with Vans, Inc. We are not trying to sabotage your career.
This was a mistake in our system that grouped your video URLs into our enforcement by mistake.
Can you please confirm if your videos have been reinstated? If not, we’d like to follow up with Youtube right away to get this resolved.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

However, when McInnes contacted YouTube with this information, they told him that they still would not be reinstating him.
“Hello, Unfortunately, if your channel has been removed due to copyright infringement, we are unable to process your appeal. Please visit the YouTube Copyright Center for more information,” YouTube said in an email responding to the retracted copyright claim.
Gavin believed this was part of a coordinated effort that already got him kicked off Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
“I filled out all the forms correctly and YouTube comes back with ‘we are unable to process your appeal.’ Something very weird is going on here. I wouldn’t be surprised if Vans didn’t even know about this and it was someone else. It could also just have been someone at Google who was told to get rid of me,” McInnes told The Gateway Pundit.
On Wednesday, one hour after McInnes met with lawyers to discuss a lawsuit against Yellow Brand Protection and possibly YouTube, his account was back online.
