Warner Bros. is allegedly "threatening to destroy" a popular YouTube modding channel over, er, some silly Mortal Kombat 1 videos

As in style as they may be, Warner Bros. has seemingly threatened to “destroy” YouTuber ToastedShoes’ channel over his Mortal Kombat 1 mod movies.

Whereas they’ll clearly get you in a little bit of hassle, mods for preventing video games are literally fairly in style, primarily as a result of it is simply plain previous humorous to look at essentially the most random of individuals or characters duke it out (take this Mortal Kombat 1 Kendrick vs Drake mod, for instance). Nevertheless, YouTuber ToastedShoes has discovered himself in that aforementioned hassle, claiming that Warner Bros. is “threatening to destroy” his YouTube channel, leaving him unsure in what he must do. ToastedShoes is understood for a wide range of in style modding movies, with Mortal Kombat 1 being amongst so of his hottest.

“This morning I obtained an IP Infringement Notification straight from Warner Brothers stating that the Mortal Kombat mods in my content material ‘infringe’ on their mental property rights,” ToastedShoes wrote on Twitter earlier this week. “I have been requested to delete all Mortal Kombat 1 movies from my channel or else they are going to subject copyright strikes and basically delete my channel in its entirety.

“For over 6 months Warner Brothers have had 0 points with individuals modding the sport and [Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon] himself has shared numerous mod movies and clips praising them. The clips of my mods have over 1 billion views throughout all platforms which have allowed me to deliver consideration to the sport in addition to to proceed supporting the group of builders I work with. My group of modders work with me on each an element time and fulltime foundation and the income from these movies pays their wages.”

ToastedShoes went on to clarify that the e-mail he is obtained cannot even be responded to, so he has no approach of contacting Warner Bros. to find out what’s infringing on their copyright. In an electronic mail to Eurogamer, ToastedShoes stated that he’s but to “hear from Warner Bros. or NetherRealm relating to the stop and desist.”

That is clearly a little bit of an odd one, given how lengthy ToastedShoes has been doing this for, however sadly in conditions like this the large guys will all the time have the facility.
