POKIMAN is accused of using her legal team to shut down videos critical of her on YouTube.
Jeremy ‘TheQuareting’ Hambly is a YouTuber who caused controversy when he said Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was the one who “bullied” the creator.
“Pokimane had her legal team contact me … and ask me to take down some of the videos,” he explains.
A representative for Pokimane alleged that the videos were not for legal use, but neglected to use YouTube’s systems and processes to remove them.
TheQuartering pointed out that if they go through the appropriate channels on the platform, they will have to “commit to court”.
He went on to speculate that her team doesn’t want to turn this into a legal battle, but has a different agenda.
“They just want to bully the creators. They want to scare you with legit stories.
“Threatening lawsuits. And asking you to take down videos critical of Pokimane.”
This is not the first copyright/fair use scandal that Pokimane has been involved in.
In 2019, she was called by PewDiePie for trying to remove the video with a copyright strike.
At the time, he branded her a hypocrite, citing examples of the Twitch star (and others) featuring other people’s content in their videos.
The Last Pokimane sorryadmits she didn’t ‘get it right’ about fair use at the time.
“I think Poki leans towards fair use 3 years ago?” TheQuartering tweetedagainst that weakening.
“Basically anything that makes a creator look bad, they’re going to bully and bend the law, in my opinion, to get people to remove that content,” he said of reps. Pokimane.
“They go around and they’re going to get her in legal trouble,” he said, adding he was prepared to spend an “exorbitant amount” to protect his video.
