Just shorty after Ubisoft's Conference on Monday, several YouTube channels noticed that their livestreaming abilities were revoked without warning or notification at the time. The affected channels, gearing up for the PlayStation Conference happening later that day, didn't receive a copyright strike or a community guideline strike, showing perfect standing with YouTube.
@Ubisoft Hello, my livestream coverage of your E3 conference got a claim causing youtube to take away all my stream rights. I really hope this was not intentional?— ThomasTheSapling 🌱 (@ThomasSapling) June 12, 2018
@Ubisoft I streamed your E3 event on Youtube and now I am hit with a 90 day livestream ban. I'm a streamer this means my channel will die and I will lose all my sponsors. The video has been deleted since it was blocked worldwide. Please tell me this will be fixed.— TacoFist (@Taco_Fist) June 12, 2018
Yep same here, no copyright or community strikes showing up but streaming is revoked. Never seen that happen before. Deleting the video did nothing. https://t.co/7aEb1JLIbf— WeWuzMetokur (@WeWuzMetokur) June 12, 2018
Sorry for the silence. After getting banned from streaming (thanks to our Ubisoft video) we tried to film our Sony "livestream" in an attempt to upload it after the show. Still working on that now. Fingers crossed. (This has been one EXTREMELY rough night!)— PSVR Without Parole (@parolegames) June 12, 2018

Fotisi has also been affected by this with our YouTube channel unable to livestream for the next 90 days.
After receiving backlash on Twitter, Ubisoft replied saying that they didn’t intend for this to happen. "Hey there, sorry for any issues you may have had, this was not intended and we're working to resolve it ASAP. Thanks." YouTube during this time replied to other affected users with Ubisoft's tweet. "Did you live stream Ubisoft's event today? If so, they've mentioned that they're working to resolve this here: https://t.co/NyJ2yOeau1."
