The purpose of this thread is to list all significant lawsuits involving youtube itself. There will be a sorting of lawsuits as the list grows, but for the time being we just add the ones not already in the list.
-some guy pretended to own minecraft related videos, put 2 false DMCA claims and threatened to make a 3rd one if the creators didn't pay an extorsion fee (and SWATTED one of the creator for talking back at the scam). Youtube is suing the copyright troll.
lgbtq creators VS youtube for auto-demonetizing them for "the gay thing" (being lgbtq), claiming sexual content where there clearly isn't. Youtube also said to have been hiding their videos, removing subscribers(!!!!!)
Viacom sues youtube for copyright infrigment on videos it has mostly uploaded itself, using 18 different agencies to do so and make them degraded in different ways to make them look like stolen leaks of unique source.
