Hello,

My account was disabled for copyright infringement. I contacted the complaining party and they sent a retraction email to Facebook. I have sent many appeals saying a retraction email has been sent but my account is still disabled.

I don't know what else I can do?

Thank you
Neither do we! Perhaps the complaining 3rd party can contact facebook for you again?

Yes other people have had a similar issue but the matter was never resolved:

It seems silly because the complaining 3rd party has sent a retraction email. So it should be fine!

Facepuke doesn't care about you not having access to your account. They already counted your account, and don't need your eyeballs, just the account counter to keep going up! And, they can't allow copyrighted material to be distributed on their network, or it really starts costing!

Hi J.fletcher1988,

It certainly looks like, after being marooned up the stream without an oar that your goose is cooked.

Through all my years on this forum did I hear that Facebook enabled an account for copyright infringement.

Facebook is a big system with billions of users; although the company may have sent a retraction, Facebook will not connect with your account. Facebook with all of those accounts does have time nor the skill and your account probably is not important to them, they have so many.

You have appealed with no success. Your many appeals probably created confusion in the system which is automated.

I suggest that you grieve your account and go on to something else.

That's the way the cookie crumbles.

Regards

Seems silly that they would send the details of the complaining party and tell you to contact them. Which i did. All seems a bit pointless if Facebook ignore the retraction email. 11,000 followers I had on my business page. So frustrating!

Yes! I understand your point of view as well as your frustration. Big machines don't have a conscience.

Is the appeal the only form of contact then?

My thoughts on copyright are if you are making a profit on it. As long as im not making money off of it shouldnt it be ok ?

Have you had this problem too?

I was referencing the source of the video but clearly they were using somebody else's video also. I can definitely see it's a problem and understand it but to disable my personal account as well which was nothing to do with it is a bit much.

Also to have the complaining party send a retraction email and still be denied access to my account I think is unfair. I've learnt my lesson and am upon making my own coaching videos for the page. Just a massive kick in the teeth.
