I'm going to guess he had too many copyright notices on his videos and so they took him down, since YouTube (and copyright holders alike) don't seem to understand that "Fair Use" is a thing.
I'd wager that AVGN was getting ad money from his videos, which means that it doesn't fall under Fair Use.

Want to use a song in your video? Contact the copyright holder. Artists have a right to be compensated for the work the produce.

He uses his own songs for the videos, and rarely a song from a game he's reviewing (which is from <16 bit era).

I dont see why he was terminated, he never uploaded a full movie or show, he just reviewed. So really the people who arr quick to say "he deserves it" is a hasty moron. There's nothing about lets plays and reviews to be breaking policy(though it almost happened). This was a very bad move on youtubes part.
Now, would that be more or less moronic than blindly defending the guy based on your own admission of having zero knowledge about why he was terminated?

Wouldn't that same logic apply for your earlier assertion in this thread? An assumption despite the lack of knowledge for who he was and why he was terminated?

Then what copyrighted material would he have been flagged for?

Yes, but I was just being flippant and sarcastic. Obviously I don't actually believe that because I never heard of him, he is automatically guilty of... whatever.

Also, I do think some folks need to take things more lightly around here. Come on, it was, honestly, a pretty obvious joke. And with that, I'm outta here.

I read this thread and I still don't know what he got banned for.

What exactly did he do?

He'll get it back. LittleKuriboh has had his account taken down like 10 times.

If not, just go to Cinemassacre.com

I never watched this guy, but if his work is anything similar, he'll probably be back up soon too.

Take me into your heart! Accept me as your savior! Nail me to the -blam!- cross, and let me be reborn!

Seriously? That sucks. I just recently started getting into him. He wasn't that funny, but I liked his videos because of all the games he would show off.

It's unsure yet. AVGN himself probably doesn't even know yet. This thread was a report on an event, rather than a report on a report.

This is his website. All of the videos on youtube can be found there, except for a few obscure ones from the really early days which aren't worth much more than nostalgia, if you'd been around that long.

Major props to my hommie Sheeef. He made Recon possible for me. Long time recovering emails and passwords. And it was his. lol.

I don't go onto YouTube to watch teh YouTubers or whatever. If I need to look up a tutorial or walk-through of a game, I'll be on there. But no, I don't go on YouTube on a regular basis and subscribed to these people.

So to me, I couldn't care less.

Thanks! Now I have something to do tonight.

Now I'm pissed, he must have violated some terms of service with the movie he was making. I loved his review videos.

  • 01.08.2013 1:22 AM PST

Allons-y!

It takes him like 6 months to upload a video after one's already been up on Cinemassacre. Just go there instead, that's where he's got everything else.

  • 01.08.2013 1:22 AM PST

still here

I just gasped harder than I ever had before.

A cornered fox is more dangerous than a jackal.

And from FOX, two phantoms were born.

Just go to Cinemassacre.

In this case as Youtube is the one who writes and enforces the rules, we should be able to assume that when they terminate someones channel for ToS violations, it means the channel violated the ToS. I'm 99% certain Youtube knows the ins and outs of its ToS more thoroughly than anybody on this forum.

Name's John. I'm a 21-year-old firefighter/EMT from lolhio who doubles as a die-hard Halo fan. I've been enjoying the franchise since 2001. My favorite iteration of Halo would have to be Halo 2 simply because I never got to experience the joy of a full-on Halo: CE LAN.


If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Oh yeah, and boot Zome.

My sincere apologies for my comments made in FT. I did not pick up on the sarcasm in your original post.
