Apparently, something is going all haywire, as a whole bunch of content creators and even BUNGIE themselves are getting strikes and takedowns of content on Youtube.

And there have been casualties as a result.

That's the only one I know of who has been nuked by DMCA Skynet. Apparently, at first it was the some Youtube Channels acting as a repository for Destiny Music no longer in the game. According the the thread about this on reddit nothing is safe. Videos with "soundtracks, cutscenes and now review and lore" have all been effected apparently.

Shame there's not a place for Destiny Cutscenes free from the terror of copyright strikes…

I was playing D1 earlier and I decided to play a story mission out of nostalgia. I started it up, the timer counted down...and then the screen went black.

It'd been so long that I had completely forgotten.

A cutscene started to play.

That's in Destiny 1.

Does anybody remember that? When you could watch a cutscene more than once in your whole life without starting a new account from the beginning? When if some jerk-ass decides to skip something you're watching, you can just watch it again?

I certainly didn't 'member.

So here's an update on this, since I thought it was news worthy enough to post it here. In the past weeks TWAB, Bungie discussed what happened. Long and sort of it being, SOMEONE, some bad actor was able to fake that they were part of a "IP protection group" account that is connected to Youtube. And then... shit hit the fan.

Simple enough and didn't need an "update" post. Done an done, right? Well... Bungie is apparently VERY not finished with this, as the plot seems to be far thicker than it seemed. Bungie suspects the whole stint was an act of retaliation. Over at torrentfreak of all sites, there is a fairly sold read about all of this.

A little over a week ago a number of Destiny content creators had DMCA notices filed against their videos on YouTube, claiming that they infringed copyright. Bungie denied having anything to do with the claims and promised to investigate. A copyright lawsuit filed in Washington now reveals that Bungie is serious about making an example of the culprits.

Not only that, but in the lawsuit, Bungie gives YouTube a kick in the paints too for being such lazy suckers with their system.

“Doe Defendants were able to [send fraudulent notices] because of a hole in YouTube’s DMCA-process security, which allows any person to claim to be representing any rights holder in the world for purposes of issuing a DMCA takedown,” Bungie explains.

Bungie’s lawsuit is particularly scathing of Google/YouTube’s processes, noting that the system introduced significant delays due to an opaque support process that stranded Bungie in a “circular loop”.

In order to get something done, Bungie involved its Global Franchise and Global Finance directors but by March 21, responses still hadn’t arrived. On March 22, Google said that it had suspended the accounts of the fraudsters but would not reveal their identities.

All in all, it's looking like this is getting juicer. News article is above on the site name, and if you want the direct PDF to the legal jargon, it's at the bottom of the page.
