Why isn't a youtube channel I reported that stole someone else's content getting terminated?

    Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) provisions excusing web hosts from copyright infringement by hosting infringing works of others, they are only required to respond to copyright complaints filed by the actual copyright owners. At some point, the complaint is given to the alleged infringer who may mount any number of defenses. The copyright owners may sue for infringement at any time (assuming they have registered copyright where required in the USA).

    Anything not in the proper form, certified as being from the copyright owners, can legally be ignored by YouTube or anyone else.

    They might have got a copyright strike. Every channel gets 3 copyright strike before it gets terminated.

    Hopefully because Google is starting to investigate claims to stop the Copyright trolls from making false accusations

    Consider changing your profile picture before anyone will impersonate you.

    Believe it or not, people often maliciously make false DMCA claims against other people, so they probably need a complaint from more than one person to look into it.
