Dear GEORGE GODLEY WORLD RECORD VIDEOBLOGGER.COM LIFELOG,This is to notify you that we have received a privacy complaint from an
individual regarding your content: Video URLs:
The information reported as violating privacy is at all content, all content. We would like to give you an opportunity to review the content in question and remove any personal information that may be used to uniquely identify or contact the complainant.You have 48 hours to take action on the complaint. If you remove the alleged violation from the site within the 48 hours, the complaint filed will then be closed. If the potential privacy violation remains on the site after 48 hours, the complaint will be reviewed by the YouTube Team and may be removed pursuant to our Privacy Guidelines
( For content to be considered for removal, an individual must be uniquely identifiable by image, voice, full name, Social Security number, bank account number or contact information (e.g., home address, email address). Examples that would not violate our privacy guidelines include gamer tags, avatar names, and address information in which the individual is not named. We also take public interest, newsworthiness, and consent into account when determining if content should be removed for a privacy violation.If the alleged violation is located within the video itself, you may have to remove the video completely. If someone’s full name or other personal information is listed within the title, description, or tags of your video, you can edit this by going to My Videos and clicking the Edit button on the reported video. Making a video private is not an appropriate method of editing, as the status can be changed from private to public at any time. Because they can be turned off at any time, annotations are also not considered an acceptable solution.We’re committed to protecting our users and hope you understand the importance of respecting others’ privacy. When uploading videos in the future, please remember not to post someone else’s image or personal information without their consent. For more information, please review our Privacy Guidelines

Thoughts & feelings:
this person gave verbal consent release to be recorded on the blog, no expectation of privacy in public,gives her full name i.d on youtube & tumblr as a public figure. Let’s see if it’s an impersonation pretending to be her. Aμα εισαι συ, επικοινωνησε σε παρακαλω για πιστοποιηση. Ευχαριστω -Geo

youtube “privacy” policy pros & cons +/-
+they deal with complaints so you don’t have to, saving you hassle & potential trouble from the small minority of unstable trouble makers
+if you see it in 48 hours you can see all the info, download & reupload elsewhere- streisand effect
how do they know if its genuine or fake complaint?
-they dont tell you the video title so if you dont see it in 48 hours you never know who or what happened

production notes:
wordpress fail not working properly, not saving the full title & removing words from it, repeatedly not leaving gaps between double spaced lines unless you hit shift return repeatedly every time you save..

update mon 7 april 2013: she never communicated at all, no email, tweet, facebook message, nothing, so it’s probably a fake complaint.
