Capcom's YouTube Takedown Over Evil Ryu and Oni Akumfa

January 25, 2011 -

Capcom attempted to quell the leak of two secret characters from Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition this week by issuing copyright notices against YouTube videos. The videos featured Evil Ryu and Oni Akumfa, two charcters that were to be announced by Capcom later. Now the company has confirmed the characters but users who had videos on YouTube can't turn back the clock and some of them have lost whole channels thanks to YouTube's "three strikes" rule. A user with multiple copyright notices can have their entire account suspended and have videos deleted.

One prominent user, Street Fighter tournament player J.R. Rodriguez, lost his channel and more than 50 videos were deleted, according to published reports.

The two characters can apparently be unlocked via a built-in password system, but the passwords themselves were leaked or discovered. Some say that producer Yoshinori Ono has taken some heat for it.

By the way, I just discovered that the video is still up on Gametrailers as User Content.

Youtube policies are a mess and often used by companies and even internet trolls. The user is defensless in any sense. I still can´t see what damage are users doing on posting trailers of games they like when "leaking" is actually a strategy used by companies to promote their games. They also are not getting a penny from it.

Copyright infringement is nothing more than civil disobedience to a bad set of laws. Let's renegotiate them.

Maybe, but not everybody there is for profit. Most of the users aren´t there for money making, including me. And most of the users don´t upload videos from movies or TV shows and expect to get money.

You know, discouraging people from posting video about Video Games is going to cause publishers more harm than good.

Re: Capcom's YouTube Takedown Over Evil Ryu and Oni Akumfa ...

Gaaaa copyright needs to be updated to stop this kind of abuse....

Not much that can be 'udpated' here.. the problem is with how youtube implements its policies....

Re: Capcom's YouTube Takedown Over Evil Ryu and Oni Akumfa ...

A fair use "news and or clip" stress test  would ensure such thigns can not be taken down....

Considering youtube is not doing any real due dillegence, I do not think such a test would have any impact.  Thier whole test is 'too many people complained, we will take their word for it, DELETED'.

Andrew EisenNintendo has worked with plenty of western or non-Japan devs. It partners more often with devs in its own country but I wouldn't say it doesn't like western devs.08/26/2014 - 7:36pm

E. Zachary KnightNintendo has had a fairly decent track record with teaming up with external development houses to make games based on their IP, at least recently. I hope they keep it up.08/26/2014 - 3:14pm
