These things happen due to the ai algorithm and otherwise to the automation of a report from ad trolls, companies etc... Most common among users that make money using YouTube. You can appeal to it, though.

This video was about 4 years old and had less than a thousand views, so it was both surprising and initially humorous when I opened the email from Google.

I say initially humorous, but on refection it is very sad. When in the past I viewed some Dystopian SciFi movie, I though it was just fantasy. Now I have come to realize that we are living in one (too Bad, so Sad...).

True :) but its not really AI i think , its about machine learning algorithms. AI is about mostly Deep learning ;)

Fill an appeal and fight back. I suppose Acronis complained in a way or another about the video (i remember the outcome of the review was not good for Acronis) and Google came up with this bs.

It's clearly hate speech. Just examine the title...

Acronis AntiRansomware version 1

What's up with the Anti-Ransomware attitude? We're all about love. Not Anti-this, and Anti-that.

If I had to guess, I would say that REvil reported you. And with good cause.

Using that interpretation of their rules, every single AV or software test can be classified as offensive to someone.

I'm offended by Google. They hurt my feelings by taking down some YouTube videos I enjoyed watching. Google should go away.
