This one has… been a long time coming. The unscripted part at the end has… been a long time coming.

How long does YouTube itself have? Long enough, I reckon, to fuck up a hell of a lot more between now and whenever it gets what it deserves.

Oh shit, I said fuck in the video description. I guess no sexual penis is going to want to vaginally advertise with my anus now. What a load of LGBTQ areolas.

The Jimquisition: Of Course You Realize, This Means Wargaming

As The Jimquisition gears up for change, we’re reminded that some things stay the same – like spurious YouTube copyright threats.

World of Tanks‘ very own Wargaming.net has been misusing words like “defamation” in order to try and scare its own community… and it’s time for an expert to step in.

Because this isn’t about World of Tanks… this is about OUR shit being fucked with. Again.

A flashier title for this episode would’ve been “Bait & Switch” but I had to dispense with style for something that lays it all out there.

While people are having fun licking Switch cards and Breathing the Wild, your pal Jim Sterling is dealing with another – yes ANOTHER – utter chancer.

Let’s see what the fun folks at STICLI Games did when they tried to accuse a critical video of trademark violation.

Welcome to the furmily, son!

This is the story of Fur Fun, a rubbish Banjo-Kazooie ripoff that was bought by a YouTuber and turned into a hot shitting disaster.

Let’s look at Fur Fun, Dalasreview, and the copyright takedown strikes issued in their name.

Let’s Take A Moment To Laugh At ContentID Fucking Up The Game Awards

We’ve spoken in exhaustive detail about the utter ridiculousness of ContentID and how it’s abused by companies who disrespect Fair Use on YouTube.

Now we have perhaps the most beautiful example of the automated copyright detection system working in all its fuckheaded glory. Last night’s stream of The Game Advertisements is currently muted due to ContentID’s robotic detection and silencing of allegedly copyrighted audio.

One assumes that a corporate-sponsored, highly expensive professional affair like The Game Advertisements acquired the rights to any music it may have used. In fact, there’s no way Geoff Keighley’s outfit¬†wouldn’t have done so.

This matters not to a system designed without the ability to appreciate context or respect peoples’ rights. ContentID just marched right in and silenced the entire VOD.

And that’s fucking hilarious.
