YouTube account CardGamesFTW has been terminated

Christmas disaster. Little Kuriboh’s main YouTube account, CardGamesFTW, has been terminated. Visiting the channel will now present you with a notice that CardGamesFTW was terminated after receiving “multiple third-party notifications of copyright infringement” from Nihon Ad Systems, Inc., one of the Japanese producers of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters anime. The offending video, says LK, was the Deleted Scenes Montage.

Last month, Little Kuriboh had a run-in with YouTube’s Content ID System that locked away a few of CardGamesFTW’s videos. The videos eventually returned without issue after LK challenged the system’s findings.

Today, the account was shut down just as Little Kuriboh was uploading this year’s Christmas Special to YouTube. LK says that he will attempt to remedy this situation, but that we shouldn’t expect the account to return for “weeks.” For now, all we can do is wait and hope that someone employed at YouTube has a benevolent holiday spirit and will side with LK.

As a reminder, Little Kuriboh still has an official account on Blip.tv where fans can watch all of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged episodes and more. Check my YGOTAS streams and downloads pages for all of the direct links.

  1. You know what the sad thing is? Some of the people are blaming 4Kids for this, even though they had nothing to do with it. Shows how much maturiy they have. -_-

  2. I’m sure they’re just misinformed. Those who know better can do their part to put the correct information out there. After that, it’s up to the misinformed to do their due diligence and check their own facts.

  3. I think he just got it back recently, but it doesnt matter, after all if youtube has a problem with it then they can do what they usually do and remove the video, but he has so many fans that they probably will just upload the videos themselfs so therefore youtube and the company will not win because fans will keep the videos up…forever!

  4. Yup, LK has indeed gotten the account back. In this case, it wasn’t YouTube who had a problem with the videos. Rather, it was one of the producers of the anime who called for their removal.

  5. It was banned again yesterday!

  6. Yes, I already know!
