Totally Not Mark Toei Allegations: Why Were His Videos Down On Youtube?
Fans have chastised Toei Animation, the company behind Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball, for lodging a slew of copyright claims on an anime YouTuber's channel.
Toei Animation, according to a YouTube video by Totally Not Mark, reported over 150 videos on his channel for copyright violation in less than 24 hours. The creator, on the other hand, contends that all of these films were made in the spirit of fair use.
He further claims that nine of the videos taken down did not contain any Toei material and were merely sketching videos, bolstering his argument that Toei had not examined his clip before flagging it copyright as YouTube requires.
This is one of, if not my favorite YouTuber, and the ONLY reason I watched One Piece at all. Toei must fix this, it's bootleg and pirating until they do. https://t.co/TCAkBOFCci— James ن (@GoldSpacePotato) December 8, 2021
Totally Not Mark describes the claim appeal procedure on YouTube in an almost nine-minute video, which can take months per video. After losing the capacity to produce income along the process, the YouTuber is left with one video at the end.
He argues that restoring 150 films that were taken down would take more than 37 years.
