A couple of months ago, various Destiny 2 videos were reported on the YouTube platform, this for claims of DMCA that someone outside the creators of the video game did. Now, Bungie has found the culprit and is not going to keep the arms crossed, but will sue the subject with a very high monetary fine.
A demand filed yesterday by Bungie affirms that Nicholas Minor To others Youtubers ** after he received a real notice from the company. The company began to notice this after the user spam made massively.
Here his statements:
Ninety-six times, Minor sent DMCA elimination notices allegedly on behalf of Bungie. He identified himself as the ‘brand protection’ supplier of Bungie for YouTube to instruct innocent creators to eliminate their Destiny 2 videos or face the copyright strikes, interrupting the community of players, streamers and fans.
Meanwhile, ‘Lord Nazo’ was participating in the community discussion about the demolition of ‘Bungie’, spreading misinformation. This caused significant economic and reputational damage to Bungie, for obvious reasons.
It is worth mentioning that the notice of dmca original of Minor was issued by Bungie after he climbed the soundtrack of the expansion The Taken King to his channel from YouTube. The user allegedly refused to eliminate the videos of him, leaving them online until the platform finally eliminated them in January.
Given this he retaliates when registering a new address of Gmail , designed to imitate the email addresses of the employees of CSC Global , the company that enforces the copyright of Bungie * *. Thus he began to issue false notices of DMCA **.
The developers are now demanding to Minor for the sum of $ 7.6 million , a total of $ 150,000 for each of the works involved in the fraudulent elimination notices of DMCA .
