I really must contribute my poo poo in the loo, so may you all excuse me for one moment.
And you're watching Pew News!
**Pew News music intro**
Apparently, I have been pissing people off left and right lately
What did you do- what did I do?
A few days ago, I did a video where I tested out an eye tracker.
Basically, you could see where I'm looking at on this screen
So I asked people to send me videos of what I should look at
And of course people send me Twitch boobie streamers
And I very jokingly just said it out randomly in the video "Stupid twitch thots!"
It's a pretty hardcore stuff.
I definitely understand why people can see that in a very, very negative way
Well, as it turns out, a streamer name Alinity
had a few things to say or do about it, rather
Pewdiepie: This is so annoying
I just feel like they- they win over me, okay
and they're not gonna win over me
Stupid twitch thots. No.
Alinity: Se- seriously? You said that?
I'm gonna copy strike this guy
Just for that word
Gonna copy strike him
Can we copy strike Pewdiepie's latest video?
Like, right now?
He called us Twitch thots
Pewdiepie: Now, I did see this very soon after it- it happened on the stream
Uh, my intention is never to upset people with videos.
I, uh, I just thought it was easier to just cut her out
But before we were able to do that,
The video did in fact, yes, get copy STRIKED
Swing and a miss he struck it out
To me, uh, thot is such a memeable word
that it doesn't necessarily have any negative connotation with it
I definitely didn't mean it in a negative way
It's just a joking word,
but I do want to apologize to Alinity and be clear
It was never meant to hurt or upset anyone.
Alinity had a big problem with me using this word
Just like everyone else that watched it.
Streamer: Yeah, honestly the fact that I was in his video
Now, we weren't sure if it was, uh,
Alinity that actually did the COPY STRIKE
Swing and a miss he struck it out
Or if it was just some random claim
'Cause I get those all the time anyway
But the day after,
she made a follow-up to this,
where she sort of boasted about
"Yeah, it was me guys"
I can't show the clip but- and I don't recommend anyone to watch it
Because it's probably the most unlikable clip I've seen of anyone ever
She sits with a bowl of spaghetti,
smacking away going
"Yeah, I wasn't not heading out"
And then, you couldn't get more stereotypical than this.
This is legitimately the transcription
Good- good money copy striking people
Alinity, the most likable genius of all time
Of course, admits publicly
to, uh, abusing copyright law and basically,
it's an illegal act that could hold up in a court of law
My videos are 100% protected by fair use
They have- they stand on their own feet.
They had my own commentary
They work a lot of times as reviews often
It's me reacting to content, but it's me adding my own commentary giving criticism reacting to it
It's transformative work that would hold up in court law or at the very least
We've seen it. Hold up in a court of law is similar to H3H3 who had the lawsuit with another
Youtuber that didn't like what they said so they took it to court by copy copy striking
Which is very similar to what happened here to him to a much less full extent where
She didn't like what I said. So she wanted to take down my video or at least claim the good money for it now
I'm used to dealing with this sort of stuff. There's opportunistic people all the time
I've lost revenue out of videos because of the background track that was a parody of someone else's track long
So a lot of things happens all the time
I've had literally two two second screen clip getting claiming all the revenue of the video without saying what caused it and
This just shows to me how how easy it is to abuse YouTube fair use law justice and to see someone boast about it
so publicly and arrogantly uhh
It's so gross. So basically collab DRM the company that strike my video. They need license videos for a limiting
So at lenity has approved of them to do this essentially and that's why they took the revenue off of my video
Imagine if if I did something really bad and everyone reacted to it I could then
strike back by claiming all the revenue from this video and essentially
Censoring all those videos if I don't like what someone says about me I can claim that video and that's such a toxic
environment that it would just ruin YouTube. So to see people abuse it this so lightly
It's very dangerous and very harmful
I and I'm glad this whole thing is brought to light
Even though I do feel bad for Alinity because she clearly doesn't know how to handle this situation
Now this whole thing blew up on reddit it got a lot of upvotes. A lot of people probably pressured her
So she issued a statement now, I didn't think she could become more unlikable, but turns out I was wrong
I wasn't even gonna bring up this whole thing until I read this statement. This is so dumb
The reason I reacted the way I did is because frankly I am so frustrated and tired of the rampant sexism in online
communities. That definitely seemed like that was the case
I thought it was because of the good money. You were making from striking videos. Hmm. I take issue with someone like Felix
Degrading and minimizing women to what is largely a very young audience
Your audience is 12 year olds hoping to see some cleavage. Are you kidding me? *Shots Fired*
How delusional do you have to be to project this sort of statement?
That kind of nonsense spills over and ends up on my streamer where I end up being harassed for six hours
You brought this whole situation upon yourself and no one else.
She then proceeds to blame collab for the whole thing saying everything collab does is
without my knowing and I will state that I'm honestly upset that they claimed on videos that are clearly
Can we copystrike Pewdiepie?
I am so upset at Collab for claiming this video
But can we copystrike Pewdiepie?
Did not want this to happen and I'm sorry it did. What did you want then?
She talks about this video called Alinity dancing compilation
Which is the collection of me playing the just dance game a game that I enjoy but the videos
Intended purpose has nothing to do with the game that I like and it's simply an objectifying video
How can they objectify me? I don't understand. I'm just playing a game
I'm just playing a game that I really enjoy explain. I just wanna play this Just Dance game.
Why do people objectify? I don't understand it
I don't understand why
She then deleted this statement
I assume it didn't get the reaction that she was hoping for
And then finally she went on PhillyD to talk about this whole ordeal
That what I meant is like the only thing I know about the how that word is that they pay me
So essentially because she felt powerless
White knight PhillyD over here
Congratulations, she was powerless. I just know that they pay me. That's all I care about
I don't understand how Collabdrm works, but can we copystrike Pewdiepie?
I don't understand how I'm getting paid
But can we copystrike Pewdiepie, by the way?
She didn't know she just didn't know cus she was being a bombarded by people to feel powerful
she said I can do that and at that point she explained a
Situation where Collab was really only supposed to claim videos where where there wasn't anything transformative as she trusts the company
She trusted the company
This is this is a story about abuse from a company taking advantage of Alinity
Can we copyright Pewdiepie? Ok, Collabdrm is a very big company. They must know the law. Everything must be fine
I trust it and I guess this is the way it works
That's why it seems like this incredibly unfortunate situation where she has this. How did this happen? It's so unfortunate
so because she doesn't want to feel like a victim she she puffs up her chest she acts like
Anything else is saying to me that despite her having a contract she is going to try to get out of it
So she no longer works with Collab. How noble she's basically saying that she'd never actually told the Collabdrm
to strike my channel and Collabdrm themself confirm that this is true that they just striked my video because
They work with Alinity
they didn't strike it because
Alinity told them and I find this information to be completely redundant because she she said I'm gonna claim the video the video got
Claimed and then finally she took credit for it getting the video claimed then because everyone fired back at her suddenly
The story is different suddenly its Collabs fault. Again. Finally Alinity I'm sorry for calling you a twitch thot
I will definitely be careful with what but using that word in the future
But you need to stop blaming other people. Stop blaming Collabdrm stop paying some sort of sexism narrative
stop blaming me and
Admit that you what you did was wrong. It's really not that hard
I know what it's like to be under fire by the internet. I've never had to use any of these excuses
Have you heard of the Barbra Streisand effect?
There's a woman try to sue a photographer for taking a picture over her house
The photographer didn't know that it was her house
Just like I didn't know what the hell you were and by suing this photographer. You may see what I'm going here
Everyone find out this picture of the house, which was the opposite of what she wanted
Yes I was probably wrong for calling you a twitch thot but you brought this whole situation upon yourself and no one else
This brings me to the second and more important part of this whole thing. Honestly, I don't care about Alinity this whole thing
The hypocrisy around the whole situation. Is just laughable and fun for me to ridicule
For the more serious meat and bone of the video Collabdrm the company that did strike the channel
I'm I'm more than familiar with them and I understand their business and I understand what they're trying to do if they own
Licence for videos and they want to claim ownership for that
I don't have a problem with that, but it seems to me more often than not they don't take fair use in in mind
Alinity reacted to my video just like I reacted to her
Why can you why can they claim all the revenue for my video for that?
For a 4 second clip they admitted afterwards that it was a human error, but it really wasn't this happens all the time
I've had like I said
I had two second audio scream get claiming all the revenue of the video which has nothing to do with the video
I've had seen just one image appearing for a few second
claiming all the revenue from the video the way fair use and the copy strike system works right now
is that if company claims your video you can appeal it but it's basically up to that company to then say yes or no
And of course, they're gonna abuse that power. Of course, they they hold too much power at this point
And I'm glad this whole thing was brought up. So hopefully these companies can be more responsible in the future
The final thing is like I said, I understand if you want to license your content
but if you truly care about protecting your content
You would at least say what it is your licensing
If you go to Collabdrm's website, they say receive the claim. My video is fair use
Why did you claim it? None of this is true
And if you go on can you give me the exact time of my infringement seems fair right?
If my video got claimed I at least get to know why it got claimed but no our job is to help creators
Control their content not to help infringers avoid claims. I'm a creator.
You're not helping anyone
You're just taking revenue
this is a perfect example of these patent companies that abuse patent laws to claim revenue instead of just
Protecting the product is the exact same thing happening
But with video content and since YouTube doesn't want to go in between of it
These companies abuse this power and this is one of the case which led to this whole ordeal Alinity knew
She had this power and that's why it became so transparent in this case
YouTube should really ought to make it so that you have to say what part of the video got claimed or at least give an
Mute that video if it's a just an image appearing on the screen just make the screen black at least give us that option
this video will 100% be monetized if there hits 50 thousand likes I'm Gloria Borger
And you're watching and you just been phill'd in
