Restore Ketinoa’s 1300 Ballet Videos

As you all know, KETINOA is ballet goddess on youtube. Her account has been DELETED by youtube because The Balanchine Trust complained about her sharing a Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux video. WE HAVE LOST 1300 VIDEOS from her precious, one-of-a-kind ballet collection. These other excellent sources of ballet videos are now also SUSPENDED: Paradiselost89, BalletPlanet, FreyaBallet, and perhaps others as well. This is UNFAIR and a huge disadvantage for ballet fans around the world, who used ketinoa’s videos for educational purposes. PLEASE HELP restore ketinoa’s account by PROTESTING to youtube and The Balanchine Trust!!!
You May copy and paste these emails that I composed, and make sure to forward the message to all of your dance friends!

To whom it may concern,

I am an avid youtube user. Youtube has given me an opportunity to view priceless video clips for free. I am a dancer, and I view these ballet videos for educational purposes. If there are no ballet videos, there is no reason for me to use youtube; the same goes for many of my dance friends.

I have been appalled at the suspension of ketinoa, the dance community’s invaluable resource of ballet videos. I understand that ketinoa has violated the copyright of The Balanchine Trust, and these Balanchine-choreographed videos must be removed. However, why was ketinoa’s whole account suspended? I suspect a similar story with the following suspended accounts: Paradiselost89, BalletPlanet, and FreyaBallet. Please explain why ketinoa and these other accounts have been suspended, while their violation was so miniscule? On behalf of ballet students, teachers, and fans across the world, I implore you to restore ketinoa’s account. If you do not return these priceless videos, I fear youtube will lose many of its subscribers.

Yours faithfully,

To whom it may concern,

I am a dancer who uses Youtube for educational purposes. Youtube has given me an opportunity to learn about ballets, dancers, and choreographers for free. In fact, I discovered the great choreographer Balanchine thanks to Youtube! But now, my ballet education has been cut short because of the suspension of some priceless video contributers.

I have been appalled at the suspension of ketinoa, the dance community’s invaluable resource of ballet videos. I understand that ketinoa has violated the copyright of The George Balanchine Trust, and these Balanchine-choreographed videos must be removed (only 1% out of her 1300 videos). However, why was ketinoa’s whole account suspended? I suspect a similar story with the following suspended accounts: Paradiselost89, BalletPlanet, and FreyaBallet. Please explain why ketinoa and these other accounts have been suspended, while their violation was so miniscule? Ketinoa meant no harm, and I am sure she would not make this mistake again if her account were restored. On behalf of ballet students, teachers, and fans across the world, I implore you to restore ketinoa’s account.

If you do not return these priceless videos, I fear Balanchine will lose his respect in the dance community.

Yours faithfully,

Liza Krylova
