My youtube account has been suspended for the video that I have created. And I still suspect if it has broken any law.

What to do now? Can I reinstate my youtube account or the least create a new account from the same email address?

Here is the email I got after filling an error request. I do not understand how to work on the text I have bolded.

Thanks for your email. Your "yadishansar" account has been suspended due to repeated or severe violations of our Terms of Use and claims of copyright infringement. Suspended accounts cannot be reinstated. Federal law requires that we terminate accounts when there are repeated claims of copyright infringement. Because you have had other videos rejected in the past, we are unable to reinstate your account. Users with suspended or terminated accounts are prohibited from creating new accounts or accessing YouTube’s community. In order for your account to be reinstated, you will need to resolve at least one of the following video removals.

The following videos have been removed from your account:

Penalty 1: "How to Download Facebook Video - without any plugin or software (DIY Tutorial)" formerly at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k9WTGpe_Sbs Removed for violating our Terms of Use on 11/16/2012. Please see http://www.youtube.com/t/terms and http://www.youtube.com/t/community_guidelines

Is that really the only video that they removed? –  Mechanical snail Nov 17 '12 at 4:36
    
I uploaded some 2 or 3 copyright videos in past and deleted them myself when I got notification. This video was only telling how to find direct link of .mp4 video in source code of facebook video page. –  LifeH2O Nov 18 '12 at 5:57

Now after a whole year, I appealed once again to reinstate my account (although I don't remember what I actually did, but i did something) and recived following email from Youtube.

Hi there,

Thank you for your email.

We have re-reviewed the circumstances of your suspension and have concluded it is appropriate to reinstate your account. This means your account is once again active and operational.

If you have forgotten your password, please visit this link to reset it: http://www.youtube.com/account_recovery

Sincerely,

The YouTube Team

Finally Account reinstated!

Sometimes this isn't due to any rules your videos explicitly break of the YouTube terms and conditions.

It could be the work of angry subscribers and users who will make themselves be offended by something in your video and flag it. Following that your account could be terminated as in the case with me.
