The AVGN Youtube Account has been Terminated

In an odd turn of events, James Rolfe's (A.K.A The Angry Videogame Nerd) Youtube Account has been found terminated today. All that remains of the page is a looming message from youtube: "This account has been terminated due to repeated or severe violations of our Terms of Service." and an appropriately placed "D:" logo


changed the article to mention videos are back up on Cinemassacre now and the account has been reinstated on youtube

Everyone that supports these new potential laws for blocking game content from being used in internet videos needs to be prepared for this; the death of fair use and power of corporations to prosecute without court.

Youtube is just "progressive" that way, doing it that way now in fear of being sued.

Me and thousands of other users have already had problems with Sega recently.

In my case I posted a demo playthrough of Ryu Ga Gotoku 5 (known in the west as Yakuza 5).

While my channel is generally left alone by companies, I got a copyright notice on the "First 20 minutes" of E.X. Troopers and had my WHOLE VIDEOS sound muted for having a May'n song (games opening). Talk about lame!
