A cease-and-desist letter to YouTube in this circumstance would be useless. YouTube is immune from suit due to material posted by third parties under federal law. You would be better off sending a cease-and-desist letter to the parties that have generated the offensive material. You may wish to cc YouTube, so that they have knowledge that the material is objected to. Depending on the complexity of the matter a cease-and-desist letter would probably cost somewhere around $200.
