Ludwig Gets Shock Youtube Ban After His New Contract
Ludwig seemed incredibly excited about his Youtube move, but he’s already caught a ban on the platform. Only days later, for “policy violations”, Ludwig Aghren saw a ban on Youtube, baffling him and his fans. Quite a few people are wondering if he caught a DMCA violation, which he mocked in his initial video. In his teaser that he was moving, he laughed about “playing music”, saying he can do that there. Perhaps that’s not the case. So much for “Not in this car”, if that turns out to be true. So what’s going on here?
The Switch Is Going Well
At first, everything was going great for Ludwig on Youtube but now a ban has hit him. It took less than 72 hours for the streaming superstar to catch a punishsment on Youtube. His account has a suspension for “policy violations”, from one of his very first streams. You can still see his channel, and watch his videos. However, he cannot go live in a stream, which he has joked about on Twitter. Saying, “you could say the switch has been going well…” it shows the “HUGE ANNOUNCEMENTS!!” stream now with a black “Stream unavailable” image over it.
He was doing incredible numbers on top of that, gaining 80,000 more subscribers since, and that first stream had nearly 700,000 viewers when it was live. Now at 2.17m followers, Ludwig still got a Youtube ban. If nothing else, that proves that nobody is safe from breaking the rules on Youtube. Or so it seems. He was banned on December 2nd, and there is speculation on what happened to cause it. The rumors were confirmed by Ludwig, as well.
People thought it was the point in the stream where Ludwig was just blatantly streaming several music videos by Cocomelon and Pinkfong, such as Baby Shark:
“Only two days on YouTube and I got banned from streaming,” he laughed. “What happened was I was trying to look at the top fifty greatest vintage YouTube videos. Along the way, I ended up listening to a few seconds of Baby Shark, which… I won’t dare listen to again. I’m pretty sure the corporate overlords that own Baby Shark have an iron fist on YouTube, and so they took me down. Not in this car!”
Ludwig pointed out as well that he has never been banned for DMCA on Twitch in the four years he was there. The idea he had was that since Youtube has a solid content ID system, he’d simply just have the video demonetized. It happens all the time on the platform, even on this writer’s videos. It wouldn’t be a big deal, or it shouldn’t have. Apparently, Baby Shark is a big deal, and the copyright holders didn’t seem best pleased about Ludwig using it in his stream, resulting in the Youtube ban. There’s no telling how long he’ll be banned, but we will keep our eyes open. It should not be a long ban though we imagine and hope to see Ludwig back to content creation soon.
