Do you like AVGN?

Hell yes!
F*** no!
Who?

The person known as James Rolfe, "The Angry Video Game Nerd" or "The Angry Nintendo Nerd" (along with his friends/associates) have had their channel suspended/revoked by YouTube today :(

I wonder what happened T.T

YouTube Source: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0M0rxSz3IF0CsSour1iWmw?sub_confirmation=1

Main Site: http://cinemassacre.com/

Fortunately their main website Cinnemassacre still exists and is on another server but that sucks for mobile users :(

Not sure about that.

 

But I think it has to do something with the videos his friend "Mike" did as it consisted of audio/visual content from old TV shows and Movies which would of course would easily flag YouTube's censors lol.

NOOO D:

 

I was planning to do a playthrough of a Sega game :(

(Like Shining Force) T.T

I know Rockstar, Microsoft, THQ, Activision and Atari hate when people monetize videos of their content but didnt know they would go this far if it is true :(

I don't get why companies care. Any publicity is good publicity

It's probably automatic, a company uploaded their content to the matching system and it took down everything immediately. It'll be back soon.

Solution: Takedowns should require an individual notice filed by a human being with the ability for dispute and review before it's taken down.
