H3H3 announces lawsuit against Korean media company MBC: “I’m on a divine vertical path”
H3H3 Productions announced its intention to sue Korean media company MBC for taking down the latest episode of this week’s H3 Podcast. According to Ethan Klein, host and co-owner of H3H3 Productions, MBC used a clip of him without permission in one of their projects and then proceeded to block his new podcast episode. because he watched them watch what he claimed were stolen clips of himself. .
Klein confirmed that they were able to get the episode back on Tuesday by cutting the controversial clip from the episode, but said, “I’m still suing these sh*t pieces, I’m still on a path divine vertical.. I will be looking at a framework to hold these media companies accountable.”
The new lawsuit comes even as H3H3 and Kleins are facing their own lawsuits from Triller and Ryan Kavanaugh. Triller is suing them for using a clip from Jake Paul’s boxing match with Ben Askren on a podcast in the Summer of 2021. Kavanaugh, who co-owns Triller, suing them for defamation about their response to the Triller lawsuit, which Kavanaugh alleges targeted his reputation.
“This is legal harassment:” Podcaster Ethan Klein is suing again, this time for defamation.
Klein’s new copyright lawsuit is being filed as YouTube is re-monitoring its handling of copyright claims. As reported by Philip DeFranco, last week anime reviewer Totally Not Mark had 150 views claimed by animation studio Toei, requiring Mark to go through a months-long claim process for the film. with every video if he wants the working years back. communication. This has led to criticism of YouTube’s copyright complaint process, which in many cases appears to favor claimants over creators.
At the same time, YouTube’s newest streamer Ludwig has found myself getting banned multiple times during the first few YouTube streams because YouTube’s content ID system is not suitable for streamers’ reactive style content.
As a result of false copyright claims against YouTube content that are inconsistent and sometimes fatal, it is not uncommon for H3 to be disappointed and hopeful that it has been forced to take more responsibility for companies that claim creators’ content on dubious grounds.
Ethan and Hila Klein are known for their key views on fair use issues, having won the landmark fair use case against Matt Hoss in 2017, the result of which is money. legislation that recognizes fair use as a legitimate legal defense. From what Klein stated on Tuesday, he hopes to take a similarly principled stance against MBC with his latest lawsuit.
