YouTube Channel "GTWorld" is filing copyright notices for ACC videos

Discussion in 'ACC General Discussions' started by Serta Farenz, Oct 2, 2018.

    To Kunos or to anyone who could know.
    The channel above <https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-yHapH6mW1ceZ_5PDUf1_g> is sending copyright notices to whoever posts Assetto Corsa Competizione videos, claiming copyright over content of the user's videos with the user driving Assetto Corsa Competizione.

    I myself got such a notice and have disputed it.

    Kunos, does your policy wrt videos stated here <https://www.assettocorsa.net/forum/...eos-and-monetization-official-statement.4752/> still hold for ACC?

    Is the channel GTworld acting on your behalf? (I don't think so, but I'd rather ask and know than assume)

    If the answer's "yes"+"no", can you talk to the channel to stop this behavior?

    Please let me/us know.
    Thank you

    I guess they can't tell the difference between ACC and real life. :D

    Which speaks for Kunos' craftmanship :)

    WTF??? Good job killing free advertisement for the(ir) game...

    Wait, wait, wait. We don't know (and I don't think) that Kunos has anything to do with it.

    That's why I asked here as I don't know any other venue for my questions.

    I don't even know if the channel GTWorld has anything to do officially with Blancpain, although it looks very much like it.

    My guess is it's a mistake/ automated system/ new guy..etc..

    The channel must have something to do with Blancpain, their website have direct links to that youtube channel, I always thought it's their official youtube channel:


    And when I wrote "their" game, I referred to Blancpain and not to Kunos, after all ACC is their official game... I know (or hope at least) Kunos would never do such things.
  9. Serta Farenz

    Serta Farenz Gamer

    Quite possible. But if this takes hold there won't be many Assetto Corsa Competizione videos out there. Which would be a pity, as the sim holds a lot of promise (I'm drooling over the Bentley already, and Misano's quite the track)
  10. Serta Farenz

    Serta Farenz Gamer

    Ah, my mistake.

    Yeah, I also assume Kunos doesn't have anything to do with that.
    That's why I'm asking here.

    Doesn't it say in the intro that we should share ACC? ... :oops:

    Yeah, I don't think Kunos has triggered the copyright complaint. But I would like to be sure they didn't.

    (P.S.: congrats on your channel, man, I'm one of your subs since a long, long time!)

    Perhaps they hate when they want to see an actual onboard video from the race and all they can see in youtube search is onboard videos from racing games and simulators, especially when games starts to look 1:1 like real life in thumbnail :D (I hate that too) :D

    My thoughts exactly. Somebody got hired to start in October.

    Management: "Vet anything that's not affiliated with us."
    New guy: (Vets everything on Youtube to look good on their first week)

    what section of the video copyright is claimed?

    i have video on my YT and did not receive any claim.

    And I accept my videos are not THAT watchable as I'm a crappy driver :-D Still...

    (P.S.: If you're the mod-maker: THANK YOU for your mods!)

    One where I'm just driving Nürburgring (Last corner IIRC). Nothing special happening, no music involved (other than the sweet music the Huracan's motor produces...)

    Good! I hope it stays that way.

    You don't use any logos in the intro or anything do you?
  19. Don't share the game mate :D
    And a warm welcome my young padawan :)

    Well, I use the Logo of ACC - but that's fair use, and it was not the contended part of the video.

    BTW the video is a review of ACC, and showing any part of ACC is fair use (up to a point an while it's pertinent to the review...)
