Freedom of speech issues in gaming critique

The Cynical Brit, a well-known video game YouTube critic, relays the details of a recent incident in this video:

Basically a game development company used the "copyright protection" legislation to take down a video review that harshly criticized their game, and got away with it (for now at least).

[Edit] After the general public on the Internet was outraged by this event, Wild Games Studio was pressured to restore the original review:

Well you know, this is not new.

A whole bunch of companies are abusing youtube, to take down certain videos or even bann accounts.

We had mad game videos on the net before, they just do not want anybody collecting youtube dollars.

People just need to boycott the videogames that these companies make.


Boycott buying videogames and together the problem will go away.
