Samsung uses DMCA takedown notice to remove GTA V Note7 parody video

Back when the Note7 fiasco was in full swing, YouTube user HitmanNiko uploaded a video of his GTA V mod, where he modified one of the explosives in the game to look like the Note7. The video did get quite popular on the internet and several others like it were later uploaded.

It seems though as Samsung has gotten quite butthurt over it, as the company filed a bogus DMCA takedown notice to YouTube citing copyright violation claim, following which YouTube deleted the video. It’s obvious here though that other than Samsung’s ego nothing else was being violated by the video, but considering how broken YouTube’s laws are (that’s a story for another day) it’s no wonder that Samsung got away with it.
