Day One: YouTube Takedown Incident

This video from cynical British reviewer TotalBiscuit explains how his review of Day One Garry's Incident got spiked after the game's publisher/developer Wild Games Studio invoked a YouTube takedown/strike, in spite having sent him the game code to review (thanks Quboid). He also goes into a little history of how publishers have been able to exploit YouTube's automated copyright complaint system to their advantage over the years. In a classic example of the Streisand effect, this fiasco is only going to draw more attention to his scathing commentary on the game.
