Samsung ‘blocks’ exploding Note 7 parody videos

Samsung appears to have filed copyright claims against YouTube videos mocking its recalled Galaxy Note 7 handset.

Many gamers have showcased a modification to video game Grand Theft Auto V, in which sticky bombs were switched with exploding Samsung phones.

But some have reported that their videos have been blocked on YouTube following a copyright complaint.

Samsung has not yet responded to repeated BBC requests for comment.

Critics have warned that trying to remove gamers’ videos will only draw more attention to them.

Really sucks

One US gamer – known as DoctorGTA – said restrictions had been put on his YouTube account as a result of Samsung’s complaint.

“It’s going to take three months to get the strike removed from my channel… I got my live stream taken away,” he said in a video.

“It really sucks, because I really worked hard on this channel.”
