Youtube user ThunderF00t has a channel in which he puts out videos regarding science, religion, and the like. His longest running series is "Why do people laugh at creationists?", which is quite funny, but the big stink he and another user have been in recently is over something more serious than youtube debates. They began some time ago debating religion with one another some time ago, but eventually this broke down as user VenomFangX (the Christian debater) filed DMCA complaints against Tf00t.
Long story not-as-long: the take-down notices were made under false pretenses, subject to perjury (big fine and up to 5 years in prison). VFX has denied that he made requested the claims, but had a friend use his account at his behest, though this friend has replied saying this is untrue. Good news is that Thunderf00t knew his rights and is currently having his attorney write up a settlement with VFX to keep from taking him to court for an attempt to subvert the legal system and use powerful legal tools to silence someone.
Much drama (and a bad joker impersonation) to be had if you watch the video chain. I almost feel bad for the VFX guy since he jumped in legal waters that were way over his head, but his lies and attempts to censor and bully opposing views to his (not just tf00t, but 150 videos in total) makes that feeling dissipate pretty quickly. Part of me wishes this would go to court to set precedent for others who would try this.
You've gotta remember that the internet can be serious business when you start filing legal complaints on people. Especially when you try to shut up someone who's intelligent and knows their rights. What does the rest of this group think about this?
