Important Update on What Happened

Okay, some of you may have noticed that the videos on this website are no longer working. I want to take some time to fill you in on just what happened and where we go from here.

The first thing you probably need to know is that our Youtube Channel, CRYPTOWATCH, was terminated by Youtube without warning or concern. This was NOT for any kind of copyright violation for videos. At the time we had ZERO copyright strikes on our account.

We got hit with a trademark violation, but there is more to the story. 
Let us start with a little video to help everyone get up to speed.

I hope you watched the video and subscribed to the new channel. We have/had been using the name Cryptowatch for at least 4 or 5 years before the name was trademarked. I reckon that gives me legal rights to use it. But I don't think it is worth the fight but I would like the opportunity to at least download all my videos from the now "terminated" channel.

Also, I was not sent a warning or asked to change the name of my channel. I was just sent an email saying that it had been terminated for trademark violation. 

While we not only lost, at this point, all of our videos and years of work, we also lost a few people who had monthly memberships for exclusive content. I feel bad for those folks as well. They were just cut off in an instant with no recourse.

This also affected some of our programming on ZMPtv. The system pulls some of our TV Network programs from Youtube. So there were and still might be, some interruptions in programming.  

I know I can never build a new channel up to the level I had, which means many features will not be available to us. Youtube has requirements that must be met to unlock certain features. Most are not unrealistic but in today's world growing a channel is much more difficult. And we are in a niche category, so we don't get a lot of movement in the algorithms.

So, in closing, I want to apologize for all the non-working videos, banners, and whatever else is not working due to the channel being removed. And say that I'm more than bummed out over losing the channel and the years of work. 

At the time of this post, I have not heard anything on my appeal and I really don't expect any good news from it. I will give it some more time, but I might add some of the more recent videos on the new channel just so I can fix some of the posts. The whole process will probably take me months. 

I think this post probably got everyone up to speed on what is happening.
