A quick rundown of what h3h3Productions has gone thru for over a year. These 2 made a video criticizing another user called MattHossZone, something that was clearly protected under Fair Use. Soon after their posting, Mr. Hoss decided to file a case of defamation. In other words, we hear in interwebz land would call this a case of chronic butthurt.
There are many parallels to what I went thru on Youtube almost 10 yrs ago but it never went this far. I too received a DMCA over someone not liking a post I had done and not long after, he filed a defamation suit against me. The content maker who sued couldn’t go to the courthouse due to him having anxiety and also couldn’t afford the travel costs.
He tried getting some of the early court hearings done via teleconference but the judge refused and ultimately the case was thrown out. Soon afterwards he made attack videos against the judge and eventually was featured on Fox News!

I’m not gonna re-explain this whole situation if you’re not already in the know. It’s a real long story but AgentOfDoubt did a great job summing up the situation well. And he also made another post concerning the priming effect and confirmation bias.
Naomi here’s my assessment of this situation and ultimately what’s going on. I don’t think a lot of these guys truly believe you’re this horrible sociopath that they’ve made you out to be. They’ve done this not because it’s the honest thing to do…. but rather it’s the safest thing for them to do…
What do I mean by this? These guys may be shallow, hateful cunts but I don’t think they’re stupid. With the level of subscribers and viewership they get, they treat their precious little YT channels like a business (they’d be fools if they didn’t).
