Will Foley started this petition to YouTube and

This starts with a LONG story. But PLEASE read if you want to help!

I'm a 19 year old Film & media student who has a YouTube channel called Will Russell. It has hundreds of videos and thousands of subscribers. Stuff like this could be used for my reel. However under the same Google account...(you can make as many channels as you want under the google account) I gave a friend of mine permission to run another YouTube channel under the same account called ActionMovieClipsHD.

This was a channel that had 2-5 minute preview clips of various action movies. In the description of the video a "Copyright Disclaimer" message was always there do give credit to the owners of the movie and let them know we do NOT have any ownership.

As far as I knew, I thought that we were complying with the fair use guidelines until in late March, Seven preview videos from Rambo: Last Blood were taken down via copyright strike. The claimers who filed the Copyright Strikes are the folks from LeakID. This caused the channel ActionMovieClipsHD to be TERMINATED

LeakID is an anti-piracy and ownership protection service. Lionsgate and vvsfilms made the copyright claims and had LeakID to copyright strike the videos. Obviously had we known that this was going to be a major issue, I would've NEVER allowed this channel be be created. But I did and now it's terminated.

[Here is where the MAJOR ISSUE begins]

My channel Will Russell was terminated shortly after because according to YouTube's network, My channel Will Russell was LINKED to ActionMovieClipsHD and for that reason they took it down. This was about a week after they terminated ActionMovieClipsHD, they didn't give me any sort of notice to at least download/backup my videos that I NOW LOST on Will Russell. My videos that have all of my work that could be used for my future career reel is GONE. [This is just the beginning] 

After reaching out to YouTube's support team and reading the emails with appeal info, I wrote several appeals for them to reinstate my channel, I also filed Counter Notification/Retraction requests for the videos taken down on ActionMovieClipsHD. And I also asked if they can reinstate ActionMovieClipsHD so I can delete it and it's videos myself so I can still have my Will Russell Channel. But nothing is working.

All of those appeals and forms were REJECTED automatically by their computer auto network. There is no REAL person who went through the appeals. The people at Google/YouTube rely on their AI Network to handle appeals but that's not gonna work for my case. The folks at @TeamYouTube on Twitter tell me the same things ti try appealing and counter notifications. I have no possible way currently to talk to an ACTUAL person on the phone at YouTube. Their headquarters phone number doesn't work.

I also tried reaching out to the claimants Vvsfilms and Lionsgate. But Vvsfilms is telling me to reach out to YouTube. It's a constant cycle.

[This is where I need YOUR HELP]

I need help by y'all to get in contact with real Humans at YouTube to reinstate my channel Will Russell. This will make a BIG difference in my life.
