Activision is issuing copyright strikes on YouTube videos that “promote cheating and unfair exploits” within its Call of Duty series, Eurogamer¬†reports.

If your YouTube channel is based on Call Of Duty glitch videos then today will be a sad day indeed and Activision is issuing copyright strikes on YouTube videos that “promote cheating and unfair exploits” within its Call of Duty series.

The report from Eurogamer arrives as Gaming network Machinima warned it’s username via its newsletter this week that videos showcasing glitches in Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare are currently being targeted for DMCA takedowns, and affected accounts will receive copyright strikes. Any YouTube account holder will know these strikes are bad news as if you get one to many it’s time to say goodbye to your account.

Machinima’s statement reads:

“Activision is being particularly vigilant about their Call of Duty videos lately; issuing strikes on videos showing glitches,”

“If you post videos highlighting these glitches, your channel may be liable to receive a copyright strike so please be careful.”

Activisionisn’t keeping quiet on the matter as they issued a response to Eurogamer reading:

“We’re excited that so many fans are having fun playing the game and posting videos of their gameplay,”

So it looks like it’s time to say goodbye to those glitch videos and I can’t say I’m sad as nothing angers me more than players camping or using glitches to their advantage. What’s your thoughts?

BeginnersTech was an idea I had one Sunday when I was bored. It is now not only a website but a successful YouTube channel that takes me all over the world. Don’t ever let anyone discourage you. Chase those dreams.
