Someone has reserved a YouTube channel I would like to use myself, let's call it
youtube.com/mybusiness channel doesn't seem to be used any longer and was never a highly regarded channel as its stats show:
- created in 2007
- 6 videos uploaded ever since
- 310 total views since then
- last video posted on June 2011 with 46 views
I have sent messages to the channel owner via the YouTube Send Message feature (one in June, 2012, and one in January, 2013) but never heard back from that person.
Can/Will YouTube transfer the channel to myself?
PS: I have applied for the
mybusiness trademark in the US and own that name on all the major social networking sites (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn ...), could that help convincing YouTube?
