"Kapamilya Trending" YT channel can post, so maybe affiliated with them. Dun na lang. Di na ako mag-upload, sayang lang.
I'm not sure about the in cahoots part. I think they can attach these electronic tags on the broadcast signal itself, and it stays on even after format conversion (mts to mp4). That's my theory. Not discounting that ABS might have some money invested in YT (as I'm sure a lot of other companies have), but YT is owned by Google, only one of the biggest tech companies in the world, so... I don't think ABS money can influence their decision-making that much. YT is just responding to a complaint.
YT also goes after "gun" channels now due to the mass shootings happening in America. They're taking down anything that offend their customer base.
