It's their game, if they don't want some shrieking racist millionaire making more money off their content, they've every right to take it down.
Exactly. If campo santo dont want their title associated with some shrieking fuckwad racist, the DMCA is the best way to get their game out of his videos. Its one fo the few uses of a DMCA that is 100% justified and in no way an abuse. What a strawberry floating idiot.
I cant stand PDP and if this just further shrinks his reach, then i wish hed shown what a shitheel he is sooner. Like you have to be properly, genuinely racist to go a strawberry float up a Disney sponsorship worth millions and millions because you wanted to say "death to all jews" in a video. Hes a strawberry floating cretin.
I'm a bit iffy about the DMCA stuff. YouTube's DMCA system is very open to abuse, as was shown recently with the Alex Mauer mess, and I'm not entirely at ease with Campo Santo going after Pewdiepie using the DMCA due to the precedent it could set and create a situation where less scrupulous devs could abuse the system. I'll have to try and expand my thoughts later when I'm at a PC instead of on the phone but I'm not sure this is the right course of action for Campo Santo to follow.
A few lower profile Youtubers were making the point that this incident will probably hurt their ad revenue even more than Pewdiepies earlier shitehawkery already has. Obviously this is bad.
Now onto to Pewdiepie himself. strawberry float that guy.
Eric Bischoff's autobiography title immediately springs to mind; 'Controversy Creates Cash'. More eyes on him, video watch rates up, more ad revenue. I mean he has 57 Million Subscribers and I can't imagine many people will unsub.

Can't stand him or his content...
JonTron's latest video doing well is sadly evident of this. Being a racist gooseberry fool for brains doesn't lose you a job in this industry, sure gains you a legion of apologists though :/

Maybe smaller isn't the right word. Priorities need to be established and for me, in this context, IP law pales in comparison to the mainstreaming of racism.
Campo Santo are making use of a bad thing to do a good thing. I think it's justified.
The part of my post you quoted wasn't about the DMCA issue.
After the previous round of Pewdiepies horrible behaviour got mainstream attention a whole swathe of gaming related videos were deemed unsuitable for monetisation. Because of that a lot of gaming Youtubers saw a significant reduction in their income through no fault of their own. This latest incident may cause the same thing to happen again. That's a shitty state of affairs.
