“Can we copystrike pewdiepie?” // Twitch Drama #1


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 Oh 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!” “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 Stupid…twitch thots. 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 Yo! 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. We’re devastated Streamer: Yeah, honestly the fact that I was in his video (*Get ready*) is crazy! 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” Now, again 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 *eating noise* “Yeah, I wasn’t not heading out” And then, you couldn’t get more stereotypical than this. This is legitimately the transcription *Reading text* (*Good money*) Good- good money copy striking people Alinity, the most likable genius of all time Ehhh 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 transformative works 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 Poor woman 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 I think 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 option to 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 *Pew News music outro* A.S.S IS AVAILABLE ON EVERYTHING
