We Review Content Flagged As Inappropriate
Okay, this one is more about us than you. When content gets flagged as inappropriate, we review the video to determine whether it violates our Terms of Use—flagged videos are not automatically taken down by the system. If we remove your video after reviewing it, you can assume that we removed it purposefully, and you should take our warning notification seriously. Take a deep breath, read our Terms of Use and try to see it from our perspective. If you find other videos on View It with the same violations, please flag them so we can review them as well!

Don’t Cross the Line
Here are some common-sense rules that will help you steer clear of trouble:

View It is not for pornography or sexually explicit content. If this describes your video, even if it’s a video of yourself, don’t post it on View It. Also, be advised that we work closely with law enforcement and we report child exploitation.

Don’t post Films showing bad stuff like animal abuse etc is not allowed.

Respect copyright. Only upload videos that you made or that you are authorized to use. This means don’t upload films you didn’t make, or use content in your videos that someone else owns the copyright to, such as music tracks, snippets of copyrighted programs, or videos made by other users, without necessary authorizations. Read our Copyright Tips for more information.
We encourage free speech and defend everyone’s right to express unpopular points of view. But we don’t permit hate speech (speech which attacks or demeans a group based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, veteran status, and sexual orientation/gender identity). There is zero tolerance for predatory behavior, stalking, threats, harassment, invading privacy, or the revealing of other members’ personal information. Anyone caught doing these things may be permanently banned from View It.

Everyone hates spam. Do not create misleading descriptions, tags, titles or thumbnails in order to increase views.

Please take these rules seriously and take them to heart. Don’t try to look for loopholes or try to lawyer your way around them—just understand them and try to respect the spirit in which they were created. Violations of the Terms of Use may result in a warning notification or termination of your account. If your account is terminated you are prohibited from creating any new accounts.
