Q: MY VIDEO HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN FROM YOUTUBE FOR A TOS VIOLATION.

What aspect of the terms you violated, we do not know. Unfortunately Google (YouTube) doesn't specify the violation, it only states that they have been violated. In our experience, most videos have been taken down because views have been obtained through nefarious methods. Unfortunately, for all of us, this is a case where YouTube is the judge and jury. They set the rules and we have to adhere to them. Please take the time to review YouTube's, VEVO's and our Terms of Service as additional violations of the Terms can result in the removal of your channel.
If views did happen to be purchased, it violates VEVO's, YouTube's and our terms of service. If any current/future video(s) on your channel is found in violation again, the entire channel will be removed and a VEVO ban will be in place. Here are some links to review on the potential consequences of purchasing video views/traffic...

Buying and getting YouTube views through third-party services

 

The video cannot be reuploaded to the YouTubeVEVO channel, but is still on your VEVO.com artist profile.
