Ustream will ban a user from his account if the site determines that their terms of service have been violated. Ustream's basic service is free. The site reserves the right to deny service to anyone that they feel is in breech of their guidelines. Once banned, you will not be able to access your account or log in and participate in chat rooms associated with a broadcast. The top reason for being banned from Ustream is copyright infringement. Ustream may ban you even if the infringement on a copyright or intellectual property was unintentional.
Make note of all pertinent information regarding your banned broadcast or account. Communicating the time and circumstances of your banning will help Ustream staff review your request.
Review the Ustream terms of service to make sure that you were not in direct violation. If Ustream determines that you have intentionally or repeatedly violated their terms of service, the chances of them lifting the ban on your account are slim.
Write an email with the Web address of the offending URL stream, your user name, and the date and time that you were banned to email@example.com. Explain clearly why you think Ustream should lift the ban on your account.
