YouTube only considers legal complaints when the party in question or their authorized legal representative contacts us.
If someone posts your personal identifiable info or uploads a video of you without your knowledge, including in private or sensitive circumstances, ask the uploader to remove the content. If the uploader doesn’t agree, or if you're uncomfortable contacting them, file a complaint through the process on YouTube’s Privacy Guidelines page. Personal info can include your image, name, national identification number, bank account number, contact info, or other uniquely identifiable info. Learn about the criteria for content removal.
If your complaint is not about privacy, select your country/region of dispute from the menu and follow the directions.
Fill out this form.
If you can't find your country/region in the menu above
YouTube.com is governed by U.S. law. As such, we do not accept legal complaints from the country/region of your claimed rights. We recommend that you pursue any claims you may have directly against the individual who posted the content. You can try to get in touch with the uploader. If your lawsuit results in a decision against the individual who posted the content, and if that court order requires us to remove the content from our service, we'll respond accordingly.
