Subject: Formal Complaint and Request for Action Regarding Unauthorized Computer Access and Damage

Dear YouTube Legal Support Team,

I am writing to you as a regular user of the YouTube platform, who has recently experienced what I believe to be unauthorized and harmful actions by YouTube, which may constitute a violation of legal statutes including the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) and relevant consumer protection laws.

I have encountered an issue where, upon visiting the main YouTube website with an ad blocker enabled, it appears that YouTube’s system detected the ad blocker and subsequently executed code that adversely affected my computer’s CPU and battery. This action, if indeed perpetrated by YouTube, raises serious concerns regarding unauthorized access to and damage of personal computing devices.

This letter serves to formally notify you of this issue and to request an immediate investigation and cessation of any such activities if they are found to be occurring. In addition, I am demanding the preservation of all documents, data, and internal communications related to any instance where YouTube may have executed similar actions against any user’s equipment.

The potential unauthorized access and damage to my personal property is a matter of significant concern and warrants immediate attention. As a user of YouTube, I had no anticipation that my use of an ad blocker would result in what seems to be a retaliatory action from the platform, leading to potential harm to my personal property.

I respectfully request a formal response to this letter within 30 days of its receipt, addressing my concerns and outlining the steps YouTube will undertake in response to this issue. Failure to adequately address these concerns may compel me to pursue further legal action.

Please find attached any relevant documentation that supports my claim [list and attach documents if available]. I am prepared to cooperate fully and provide additional information as necessary.

I appreciate your prompt attention to this matter and look forward to your timely response.
