YouTube is closing game hacking channels

Both @GuidedHacking and CheatTheGame's channels are gone since yesterday, and more getting banned today!

Recently, you must have heard on the 'net by now about Rockstar cracking down on people making GTA V Game mods/cheats, going as far as raiding their homes with police and dragging them into court, but now it seems YouTube has decided to start cracking down on any channel that has videos 'showing' people how to use programs like x64dg to make 'game cheats' or 'mods' and flat out terminating all their videos, channel itself, and does not look like YT is going to backdown on this latest enforcement actions, refusing so far to listen to the growing backlash on social media over their Dalek-like actions! :(
We'd like to inform you that we've received a Circumvention of Technologies complaint regarding your YouTube account. Upon review, we've determined that activity in your account violates YouTube's Terms of Service. As a result, we've terminated your account. If you would like to appeal the suspension, please submit this form.

When we say circumvention of technological measures, we’re referring to tools that allow users to evade a software’s licensing protocol. This can mean serial numbers, keygens, passwords, and other methods to hack software or games.

A CTM claim is appropriate when the infringed material isn’t present in the video (or directly linked to), but the video offers a way for users to access it illegitimately.
You can see more reports on the growing 'reddit' thread linked below, but what are your thoughts on the whole new 'enforcement' action by YT over 'modding/hacking/cheats' videos on their platform?

Speaking of which, someone should archive Voksi's channel at this point because I'm running out of space :/

The PC scene is really missing Voksi now

Hopefully people will move to other video sharing sites, Skullator was close to getting his channel suspended recently and I'm concerned it will now.

Circumvention of Technologies complaint? Mother fuckers, google no longer showing torrents, at&t willingly accepting to police pirates, seems like a piracy crackdown is really underway. I expect a hard time for pirates on the horizon.

I heard on a report card that 60% of the entire catalog of Minecraft Videos are by MCAP. That's how "great' the YT community is! :D
I think VIMEO or SafeShare will be popular
