So. Youtube just sent me this message. Apparently Blizzard is not happy. They threw the copyright hammer at me. I don't know what to think right now.

Blizzard actually gives explicit permission to use their games in non-commercial videos, you should reply to YouTube with a link to us.blizzard.com/en-us/company/legal/videopolicy.html which says in part "As a community content creator, you are permitted to create video productions using Blizzard's Content, and to distribute them freely on your website, or on other websites where viewers can freely view your Production."
I think the reason why is because your using "World of Starcraft" name.. you should change the name to something else.. like "Universe of Starcraft" or something else, and indicate properly that this is a free mod from starcraft II..
Wouldn't it be "Activision Blizzard Inc." if they filed for Copyright? They haven't been Activision Games in a very long time, since the merge with Blizzard Entertainment. Or if it was Blizzard themselves angry about it it would have been from "Blizzard Entertainment" because that's what was claimed when the Fall of the lich king video was leaked out..
tbh it looks like you were hit by fake copyright flaggers..
Hmm, looks like it's from Activision rather than Blizzard Entertainment. Perhaps someone from the Activision side of things went ahead and had it pulled, rather than check up on Blizzard's community policies.
Activision does technically still exist as separate entity to Blizzard, with the parent company being Activision Blizzard or at a higher level, Vivendi SA.
If Blizzard was unhappy with it I would have expected to see Blizzard Entertainment or Activision Blizzard there, rather than Activision Inc.
After I finally got XBL gold (bought a 12 month subscription card for 40€), me and my friends were playing BC in a party. This guy came to our squad and decided for some reason to get under stairs and start idling there, so we couldn't squad spawn on him. Me and one of my friends were special ops, so we chose to punish him with tracker guns (or whatever those are)...
