On the 18th of October, the developer of Day One Garry's Incident issued a copyright strike against my channel, effectively censoring the criticism of their game. This is an account of what happened and why it should never be allowed to happen again.


Hailey Rose : Someone stole one of my videos 6 months ago, and I put a copyright flag on it... that person got mad at me and decided to flag half of my best videos as HIS material (obviously it wasn't) and even admitted in writing on a public forum that it was out of spite and "to get back at (me) and force (me) to apologize".  I woke up the next day and saw that my entire channel got shut down when he continued to do it.  The copyright system is even used to BULLY PEOPLE.  It's ridiculous.  I managed to get my channel back because I marched into the YouTube office in Los Angeles... but in the meantime I signed this petition to revise the copyright system:

RastaTailSpike : I'm glad Genna opened up the comments on his videos again, this was the place where I found TB and it's here that I've been wanting to say goodbye. Thankyou John.

Murrehh : This is why I applaud Deep Silver (the company behind Ride To Hell: Retribution) because they accepted everyone's thrashing of the game fairly.

Awesomesauce 935 : -Garry's Incident is the single worst game in history, i have made a petition to valve to remove it from steam and am attempting a lawsuit- best gaem evar dont delete me.

GrizzlyGamerTV : Those 3,129 dislikes are fake accounts made by the people at Wild Games Studio.

Mark : I dunno why TotalBiscuit doesn't work for a news channel? His voice would make any one listen!

TheJoker3456 : I made a video on my gaming channel called 'The Elsa Scrolls V: Let it Go. I used the audio from the English version of the Let it Go music video. About half an hour after my video that took me a total of 6 hours to make, (not including upload and publishing time) I receive an Email telling me that I have a Hebrew company has claimed THAT I USED THE AUDIO FROM THE HEBREW VERSION OF LET IT GO IN MY VIDEO, AND THAT THEY CAN NOW PUT ADS ON IT.

Not Alex : You would make a great lawyer

Verlisify : lol I would love to hear this video ruined Wild Games Studio

Jonathan McGaha : The fact that this video has over three million views and the original review which the developers tried to censor has nearly 800,000 is a perfect example of why this sort of underhanded tactic to stifle criticism doesn't work out.

The Oshawott Man : It's happening again but this time it's Nickelodeon for flagging negative reviews about breadwinners the people who is affected by this is themysteriousmrenter and rebeltaxi99

Hunter H : Totalbiscuit, you should be a lawyer.

Σ - HershyCo : TotalBiscuit: Makes a video suggesting the copyright system needs to change... YouTube: Okay sure! *YouTube makes it worse* GG YOUTUBE, GG.

Thomas thE Cuck : I love this video, i like to just keep it on in the background, i find it .. soothing. 

Good Griefer : How unprofessional of wildgamestudios. 

Jindorek : Tobuscus once had his own music video banned because someone else reposted it and then claimed it was theirs. As for you TB, run for president of the world. I'd vote for you in a second.

Thomas Bishop : Game devs: Y U NO LERN! Seriously... its blatantly hilarious how new developers try to get away with this shit. Line 'em up and knock 'em down TB. Give no quarter.

SmellyWelshHobo : Totalbiscuit has owned them this is a prime example of a company failing to grasp the power of social media

Wacko Doodle : This incident of garys incident has not only made me avoid their game by over 500% from a maximum of 100%, but also introduced me to TotalBiscuit. In a way Wild Games Studios have actually promoted TotalBiscuit and demoted themselves for acting like children and abusing the system. This could all be solves if they did one simple and easy thing: Make a better game. And I know hard it is to fix a broken game (having made a few games myself) but part of the fun in game developing is fixing the game from bugs; its what beta testers are for and honestly they made something worse when they could have fix the game themselves.

ReptileOS : Totalbiscuit logic: Get really, REALLY angry at someone. Within seconds, calm down without even a large breath. BEST. GUY. EVER.

Alber : I just wanted to thank you for standing up for the people without a voice in this. Without you and other big channels, us small channel would just die with no one even knowing what's happening. It's great to know that someone has our back here because YouTube has totally sold us out to protect themselves.

Braden Woods : Total Biscuit, a YouTube user named TheJWittz had one of his videos removed for no reason, the flag being "inappropriate content." He tried to send a copyright appeal, but the box didn't have enough characters. One of his buddies at Maker Studios asked YouTube why it was taken down (the response being "spam, scam, or commercially deceptive content"), but the guy also said that getting the information was like pulling teeth. However, he has been uploading regularly for 4 years (the banned video being up for 2 years), the video had over 2 million views, and he had never had a copyright claim in the past. Could you help?

RayneSaltair : Puts WildGamesStudio in my little red book of death IE never buy a title from this company.

João Serra : I blame youtube over all of this... They been doing the users experience worse and worse. Youtube need some competitor because right now they own internet videos and do whatever the hell they want.

Rambo Snoop : It's nice to see a 'larger' youtuber looking out for the 'smaller' ones.

Curtis Beatson : The only reason that this game really got in is because it contain 'Garry's' (a blatant reference to Garry's Mod :P)

AH-64D Apache Longbow : I have an image in my head of Stephane sitting in an empty office in the small hours, creating account after account on YouTube and thumbing this video down. Over 3000, Stephane, keep at it big guy!

Steeven V. : why does this exist anyway, the way i see it its like, a video game company make a virtual 3d world that you buy and explore, you make a video out of it and get a copyright notice and that your video is removed. What about real world, if i take a video in central park, will the mayor of NYC flag my video ? Will the engeniers flag my video if i take a video in the metro ?? thats ridiculously absurd.

EZGames 69 : These are just a bunch of stupid people who clearly have no common sense. That's probably why the game was terrible, because of the idiots who made it who thought it was good.

JellyfishOverlord : So, FUN Creators makes Wild Games Studios look like innocent puppies compared to them. After all Wild Games Studios did the right thing in the end, can't imagine FUN doing the same...

Gao Li : On another note from steam: I gave bad critiques for the Sonic & Racing Transformed DLCs on steam which were removed the next day. I purchased the product, I gave a negative critique, it was removed, I cannot comment anymore.

RoamingIRaccoon : On the positive side, this whole incident has raised awareness about the type of bullshit some companies are using to stifle criticism of their works and has brought the attention of a lot of people to this awesome channel. Liked and subscribed :)

Alliance Trooper : Copyright should be used against people blatantly saying "Sonic is mine, All the work, Mine.", Not people making money from your game, etc. If someone shows your game in a video, Take it as a complement, Free publicity, Especially on more prominent channels, Such as Angry Joe or Escapist, People make money from this to pay bills, Buy essentials, Feed their families, If you wouldn't break into their homes and steal their cash in front of them, Don't use the bullshit Youtube ID system to do it either.

Eddie Marais : Did you get the video put back up in the end?

McRae4Ever : Get Well Soon TB

showstealer1829 : You know there is a scarier thought to think of here with the FUN saga. TB has two copyright strikes now correct? (One for the "WTF is..." and one for the "Let's NOT Play..." stream) It only takes one troll with a fake account to blow this channel to Hell.

Broccoli M : The best thing i love about this is that hes stays sort of calm through this

Winterchild : now their terrible game is in the bundlestars bundle... oh well. 

rjc0234 : congrats on getting over 3 mil views on this :P nice to expose them

winterx6 : Psshh, game publishers should be happy as youtubers are promoting their bloody games! Doesn't matter if it's a bad review or a good review, as some will like the game and others won't. 😒😡 gosh

Lukas Christensen : Don't give in, Mr. Biscuit. You have our support, and I'm sure you know it!

Shovel of Fortune : I found this through Angryjoe, and was kind of surprised at how misleading the thumbnail was.  Good on you for defending those who are unable to defend themselves on youtube, I'm sure you won't see this, but I'm sure they appreciate it, as do I.

Philosjutsu : I felt like clapping many times in this video. Masterfully said!

Värska : Good video as always Jontron

Mushe : It's happening again with the creators of the awful Guise of the Wolf, "FUN" is the name of the company. All this nonsense is covered on TB's subreddit. I hope someone can destroy that evil company.

Kovács Zsolt : Message for people: TB and other "youtube flagships": hold on, we believe in you! CrapCreators: If you make a bad game, atleadt takr the critiqe and learn from it. Don't try to oppose the consumers! Dear consumer soldiers: Keep standing tall for our defenders. Defend them to defend ourselves! Youtube: Fix the system. Stupid and mad people keep abusing it. It's not right.

Wither : lol your such a badass biscuit ;)

Muwex : This must be seen by everybody.

Jessy Wallace : Can we have an aftermath video please? :)
