YuGiOh: The Abridged Series PETITION!

Filed under: interesting, Video, videos, youtube — youtubemovie @ 11:32 am

Youtube Commments:
Hayl no. YGO Abridged isn’t a breach of IP regulations – LittleKuriboh never claimed ownership of the footage he’s using… The series is fully covered under freedom-of-speech laws in most countries worldwide.

Good luck, LittleKuriboh! W00t for the Abridged Series.

#3. Reaver119

sign my name.
NOW.
Damn it youtube, I guess all we can post now is videos of ourselves ranting about the molecular substance of a goat! Am I right or what? Aren’t parodies allowed anymore? Jesus f*cking Christ man, Youtube is getting worse and worse by the day.

Why not. Signed. RaSeInt Studios/Cryptography and You supports this petition… I do have a question though. Are you assuming youtube moderators are just going to browse and come across this petition, or are you going to contact them after a number had been reached?

Also, yes, AMVs seem to be becoming the next phantom villian to the recording industry. It’s not quite the best defense to claim something as one anymore.

I highly doubt that anyone from youtube will do anything about this, if anything, destroy his account, because unfortunately youtube is now part of google, and google has to save face always. Otherwise they wouldn’t be around. But SIGNED! Cause I love the series, and yes the CREATIVE genius of the LittleKuriboh

Man, I have to admit, it isn’t fair to take Yugioh Abridged off, but honestly, I don’t know if this petition will really be /recognized/ by youtube. Mable back when it was..you know, run by two guys form the top of a pizza parlor, but now, Google and all….
Well, none the less, you have my support, who knows? Mable it can make a difference..
-Juliet Kuehn, because real names look better than “B4K4xni”

*snort* If i’m not mistaken, LK is a fan of yugioh himself^^’ He’s picking on the 4kids version, and if you’re a fan and have, you know, watched it in japanese uncut, you’d understand that too. Bashing someone whos making a video to support something he’s a fan of in the way you did was a rather unecessary way to express your opinion. Kthanx. *signs*

this isnt copyright infringment, its a spoof, under fair use in copyright laws, you can make vidoes and publish them as long as they are for educational purposes, if you use enough to prove a point, which littlekuribou did, he poked fun at scenes from for kids, and the most important of all, if its a spoof, which this is. If you take this down, go sue wierd all for his work cause he publishes other people’s songs as spoofs.

Signed.

If enough people sign It’ll be at the top of commented and viewed and the public will notice. This …might… do something but let’s be optimistic

*signs*

come on you other 500k+ people who viewed the first episode and subsequent episodes!!

I think there’s a bit too much optimism about this working. Nobody cares about online petitions, after all…

But, this is for a damn good cause, and LittleKuriboh’s work has no reason to be taken down, not any more than any of the actual episodes people post up. So consider this my signature and my agreement with everything you’ve said here.

-Aceticacidplease

This was an ok series but what really annoys me is the fact that the removal was completely unfair…just like the guy says in the video its not really that much different from an AMV or any other parody!

PETITION SIGNED,

omegaweapon2005 (real name: David Morbey)

I’ll sign, I absolutely loved the Abridged series, and I don’t think it’s fair. Other people have done simular stuff… and this is far better than anything I’ve ever seen. Little Kuriboh is a god and I don’t care what anyone else says.

ps. Pohatu… grow up.

I thought this series was ok but whats really got me annoyed is that its a parody and therefore unfair to remove (especially as i dont see youtube removing any Red vs Blue episodes) so count me as signed.

PETETION SIGNED BY:
omegaweapon2005 (Real name: David Morbey)

SmilingSadly signs.

Also, not to be pessimistic, but this is never going to work. The videos aren’t going to be allowed back, and I shall miss them forever.

(On the upside we were finanlly able to see what LittleKuriboh actually looked like though …)

~la~

I would rather watch “The Abridged Series” than the actual Yu-Gi-Oh!, so I will sign this 50 kabillion times, and so will my sister, who loves and respects LittleKuriboh. I also think that youtube should pay LittleKuriboh to re-post his work because it’s soooo gooood!

Signed by dosdavonyos x50 kabillion, and damn proud of it!

Signed Daragon1028 (Andrew Dorough) & i agree, the abridged series isn’t a copyright infringment any more than about 60% of what is on this site. if you’re going to take this down you will have to take down songs people sing that aren’t their own, every single AMV, & every single thing that has any corralation to anything. because that is what the abridged series is. just a cartoon, w/ a voice over in which he only once quotes the show. therefore negating your infringment rule.

TOTALLY FREAKING SIGNED. Legally, I cannot see how they can do this, as — just as you said — they have to take down all AMVs. Not only that, but I’ve watched tons of actual anime episodes here (subbed of course). Not only are the fansubbings illegal in the first place, but posting direct episodes on here is total infringement.

So, SIGNED.

Okay, YouTube must be run by “Gay Clowns” since Google or whoever the hell it was that took over. I say the Pharaoh should give them a “MIND CRUSH” now how’s that for stepping on Copyright infringing toes. Also, you it isn’t like he actually said he made this, he said he made the ABRIDGED version of Yugioh, not to mention trying to copyright infringe on something EVERYONE practically knows to be Yugioh. Oh, and also I’d like to sign the petition (Just fuel for fire is all) BURN YOUTUBE!!

LittleKuriboh is a natural at comedy and it’s a damn shame that he can’t get his talent to the masses because YouTube is too busy pandering to the CEO’s of whatever company has their panties in a bunch.

It’s protected under parody.

Signed.

ok…this woody4424 and im going to singn this petition because….well i dont know i guess because i watched blunty3000`s video so u SHOULD quote SHOULD thank blunty because without him im sure you wouldnt have half the signatures that u haave now so im gona sign my name one more time for ur pettion im woody4424 and ur welcome

It is not copyright infringements if it isn’t the entire episode, it doesn’t even have the same audiot so why are they complaining about it? What’s next? Will they remove all movie trailers or tv show trailers? Because that is more of a “copyright infringement” than his videos were, even though that isn’t infringement either, so bring it back! Here is my signature!

hell yeah i’ll sign! i’ll die without these wonderful fun videos. It harms nobody and actually make people interested in watching the original so where is the harm? LittleKuriboh is the most amazing amv maker out there please dont stop this too.. please

Youtube, I love ya, but ya suck! Just f***ing delete half, if not more, of the users on here because they f-ing posted AMVs for people’s entertainment. I’ll be first if ya want but this is so stupid! People understnad that half most of the videos of animes, amvs, or manga on here are not made by the actual people who posted them, you bastards! Sorry for the language and such hate but I’m tired of this happening!

Check out my video “Devil Barbie.” See how Barbie reacts when Ken breaks up with her! It’s a short hilarious video, click on my name, NGMmedia, to get to video. Thanks, I’m sure you’ll like, and please rate the video when you’re done watching it. Thanks, again.

well i will sign this however i have to disagree with you on one point he did esencially do the same thing as an AMV however! there is a difference. He used copy written characters ideas ect. such as yugi (yuugi in japanese) and duel monsters. these are copy written so you tubes fear of 4KIDS attacking them is natural. still thats like saying OH NOES WE MUST REMOVE EVERY SINGLE FAN FIC/MOVIE/AMV/ANYTHING ANIME RELATED FROM THE NET!

Signed. This is ridiculous. If he was posting whole episodes or trying to turn a buck that’d be one thing, but what LK does constitutes fair use. If parodies are illegal, Wierd Al would be in jail (Al’s even stated that while he gets permission from everyone out of professional courtesy, he isn’t legally required to).

I signed, just to post this. It’s a shame that Youtube felt the need to delete such creativity and for using an invalid excuse. According to the Fair Use laws, LK has a right to post his videos since they are considered parody and satire. I doubt Youtube will read this, but I must say: Shame on you, Youtube, for taking down something you supposedly promote: creativity. Go back and read the cases on FairUse before deleting stuff without valid reason.

Signature applied.

I hope Youtube provides some answers or reasoning behind this. If they’re going to be deleting stuff like Kuriboh’s work, then they need to go and delete a lot of other stuff, too. Like about half of what’s on Youtube, probably.

I suppose the real question might be who is paying Youtube to actually care if these are on here.

Totally Signed! Taking down Littlekuriboh’s hilarious Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged Series is an injustice. It’s satire (not to mention non-profit satire) and therefore it should be protected under “Fair Use” as it is NOT in violation of any copyright laws. Hopefully, youtube will realize the error of its ways and not only put Littlekuriboh’s awesome videos back, but also apologize to him for causing him such a hassle. Let justice and the REAL laws (i.e. the right to Fair Use) prevail!

Yeah, I’m signing too. Though I’ll abmit having an online signed petition might not be enough to make something like youtube bring it back. Afterall, it’s not like we can sue them into submission. That’s what all this is about, they took it off so their asses don’t get possibly sued and even if they do bring it back, what’s gonna stop 4kids from stop being the assholes they are and bringing yet another lawsuit against Youtube? I’m just saying..

But even if 4Kids tried to sue them, they would lose because it’s a parody; just like people can’t sue Weird Al or tons of radio stations for using their music for parodies AND making a profit (even the off-Broadway musical, Forbidden Broadway, uses copyrighted songs from Broadway musicals for parodying purposes). Of course, 4kids could sue youtube for the ACTUAL TV episodes that are posted on this site, but that’s another story entirely…

I agree, but petitions hardly do anything these days. I agree that the infringement laws shouldn’t apply to little koriboh since it really wasn’t, but to get something done we all need to bitch. Do it Hogwarts style and bombarge them with letters! Hazzah! To victory!

I KeitoKakashi89 sign this petition. I believe this is oppressing the First Amendment of The United States and should be allowed to be viewed all over the world. It’s a very well done voice over and should be praised for it’s great creativity that’s bring more viewers to YouTube.

Death T-2 signs! Satire and sarcasm are completely fair play according to copyright law, and this view must be upheld. There are better cases of genuine copyright infringement floating about than the non-violating Abridged Series that should take on higher prioroty.

Signed.

Also, I believe that it is within the bounds of copyright law to create a parody of a copyrighted product (which YGO:TAS clearly is)–thus, at least with my extremely limited knowledge, this should be legal… Right?

We need a lawyer to come in and tell us for sure, IMHO. Regardless… Signed, signed, signed.

Signed! You can’t have it both ways. If you’re going to ban this then “over nine thousand” and all other parodies using footage should be taken down as well. Otherwise, don’t target single parody videos just because of their content / popularity.

I’m signing. Seriously, a few weeks ago, my subbed GX episode 85 (which I subbed myself, mind you) was taken down, and I’m starting to worry about my AMVs. They really should at least try to consider what’s in whatever they’re viewing, and not take it off for some inadequately-explored reason.

*sigh* This is so totally the opposite of super-special-awesome. Whatever that is…

What the fuck? I can name about things all over this website that violate copyrights:
Naruto episodes
Bleach episodes
TNA PPV matches
UFC PPV matches
Family Guy episodes
Chappelle Show episodes
Fullmetal Alchemist episodes
And they block something that isn’t even the show itself? You have my vote! Fuck Youtube and Google!

its sad to see this but mabye we should just let you tube die i say this becuase that LK wasent the only one hit a bunch of my friends for example we should move on to another site ehhh its very sad but i will help[ just becuase im big fan of show signed

Yes it can be taken down because of the footage used, even though it’s a small portion, the show it’s self is still copyrighted. Plain and simple, sorry and yes it was still a nice little series.

If you wanted it allowed, a petition will not change You-Tube’s policy. They have been stricter because of the fact that they can be sued for another companies content being on their site without the companies permission.

I saw this coming a mile away when Google joined youtube. I loved the series, and we will fight in the streets, we will fight in the hills, we will fight in the internet eve nif it pertains no relevence at all. WE WILL FIGHT FOREVER TOUGH AND FOREVER FORWARD!

Signed

Well, at least we aren’t 30 year old nerds with egos larger than their heads. Dude, it’s not like you actually know everything yourself. By the way, do you even have friends. You don’t seem to be the kind of guy that would be pleasant to be around. Call people insults like a bunch of monkeys with car keys is not a good way to make friends. Seriously.

Thanks akl2k7 but it’s cool I’ll take my heat.
Well Monkey with car keys? intertesting.
Regarding the ‘Doctrine Of Fair Use’ for the US acording to how I understand it so long as his not selling anything or harming the product there is no reason for his videos to be remove well this monkey has a mouse and fare knowledge of the subject😀

Yur looking under the WRONG law!!!
At least you tried, that’s more than most do.
Keep trying. Look at ALL intellectual property laws, don’t just try to find the ones that support your position. In a courtroom the opposing attorney will be using THOSE laws and if you can’t address or defend them YUR A LOSER!!!
As for akl’s personal attacks, just what I’d expect from a fucking tard that can’t address the real issuez!

Good riddance. While I do agree removing it for copyright purposes was unjust, the series was a disgrace to the original genius that Yuugiou is. Removing it was a step in the right direction. The next step? Removing the creator… one way or another >.>

Signed

Proud fan of LittleKuriboh
Indeed, if anything he undid the damage 4kids did to the original series of Yugioh because I can honestly say besides the manga version his is the best interpretation of Yugioh yet. By saying what L.K. did was illegal is pretty much saying all the AMV’s on here on illegal too. We don’t want that now, do we?

Signed by Prodigs. You made a perfectly valid arguement.

I had my abridged series taken down by Funi when I first put it up, thankfully I was able to get it back up. But now, it’ll probably be gone tomorrow. MasokoX has had his new ep removed, and Tioh has had the second episode of Death Note: Abridged removed, which I feel is one of the best YGO:TAS knock-offs.

I’m signing. Not only because the series is just plain awesome, but also because it’s aggrivating. If I thought it was the worst thing ever created, I’d still be angry. Like you said, it’s pretty much an AMV, but with Voice-Overs instead of music, so following this rule, the thousands of AMVs here on Youtube should also be deleted. I hope this gets worked out soon so everyone who makes AMVs or anything similar can get justice and not have to worry about their videos being deleted as well.

Wow, I haven’t seen a push for something this big since they canceled Family Guy. I’ll definitely signed. Because if it’s taken down for copyright infringement, what makes Yugioh TAS different from any other abridged series.

~~~Playuhplayuh~~~

Let’s look at the 4 factors of the fair use doctrine (17 USC § 107):
1. Purpose of use.
Clearly parodical and for no profit. Score 1 for LK.
2. The nature of the copyrighted work.
YGO is original enough that a reference is recognizable. Alright, 1 to 4Kids.
3. What amount/proportion was taken.
25% of the video, none of the audio. Is a tie fair enough?
4. The effect upon the work’s potential market or value.
TAS hardly threatens YGO’s market. LK++.
2.5 to 1.5. What’s up, YouTube?

You are so right on, man!
I mean, WTF?! What exactly did he do wrong? I mean, if they’re going to do that, then they may as well take off every single AMV and lose so many people! Boy, I know all my frineds are going to be as ticked off as I am!
–signing proudly to this petition as Sato no Tenshi: The Angel of Sugar!

SO FUCKIN SIGNED!!As in the words of DreMarx”youtube isn’t youtube it’s fucktube”and in my words it’s fuckeduptube. though i personally don’t like yGO the original I LOVE THE ABRIDGED !!!SOOO funny ^_^again sry for the swears BUT DEFINETLY SIGN ME UP!!!

Okay, I would like oto bring up to those people that said that 4kids was getting screwed. 1) LK was not selling this nor was he making any money from it so they were not getting screwed. The point of copyright infringement is when someone takes a whole episode and posts it with out persmission or when someone is takings characters from it andusing it for money.

Signed.

Copyright law protects parody as “fair use” and this was clearly intended as a parody.

The law recognises and respects that there is a need for humour in this world and that, yes, the original copyright holders may not appreciate the joke of their creator being poked fun at (e.g. they likely wouldn’t give permission to a satire or parody that was too good at making fun of their work) and so exempts parodies under “fair use”.

Sorry YouTube, legally this isn’t copyright infringement.

Signed.
And if anyone who is in charge of thi s stuff reads this, I realize that the Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series Episode One may be deleted by now. if that is true then what would work would be posting on this video and sending a message to LittleKuriboh (if you watched his video it is strongly implied he has it, just does not want to get his account deleted for uploading it) that it is fine if he re-uploads it.

Signed (Copyright infringment would only have applied had he not added comedy) Sure he condenses the awful show into a bearable 4 minute delight, but he cut out the stuff he didn’t like and added in stuff he did it was modification it wasn’t a carbon copy of the original show but was actually watchable

You have to be possibly the gayest person I have ever seen. In fact before I posted I had to ask myself,
Hmmm would I rather reply to such a faggot or see Yu Gi Oh the Abridged Series come back. I decided by a slight margin that I would rather see the series come back. Is still hate your gay ass though.

I don’t have a lot of knowledge about laws regarding copyright infringement, but what Mittopotahis is saying makes sense. TAS wasn’t full episodes of yu-gi-oh, they were condensed clips replaced with his own voice acting and script. Little Kuriboh wasn’t making profit off it, and if anything, Yu-Gi-Oh was being promoted free of charge without losing any profit. What’s the big deal with giving giving people something to laugh about after a hard day? Is anyone being harmed by these clips? No.

if u think im a dumbass and this is the greatest thing ever, then i guess i won’t sign it, i mean, i like YTAS but lk already said that hes moving to a different site and its not youtube whos being a dumbass, its all the people who flagged lk’s video, so why don’t you call them dumbasses?

Shrew here, signing this petition. “Copyright infringement” is bullshit. YouTube has the most disgusting double-standards I’ve seen, and I come from a family of such “values.” It’s a pathetic excuse that moderators use to back up whatever flimsy reasons they have for removing something that doesn’t strike their fancy. Excuse me for noticing, but it’s true. Hopefully, this petition will work.

PLEASE DON’T READ THIS. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However, if you don’t post this comment to at least 3 videos, you will die within 2 days. Copy and paste this, to be saved

Signed! Mos def.

C’mon, Youtube, you’re throwing away one of your biggest phenomena, all due to some fallacy that I’m sure the original copyright holders of Yu-gi-oh could care really less about.

If the original creator of the series even knew this was going on (and could understand it), I’m sure he would be flattered by the parody and continued fan interest, not “angry” because of some sort of defamation…

I’m a kleptomaniac, I stole this petition from school!
I also pose the question, why does the company care so much about a 5 min parody? As a matter of fact, after I watched these parodies, I went to go find more information on Yu-Gi-Oh so it actually got them another fan.

I think it might have been because he didn’t put the “this video is purely fan made and has nothing to do with the original animators” disclaimer in the description. They take down AMVs that don’t have that on there, too, and since YGO: TAS is virtually the same thing, they might have treated it as such.

I think this is my first comment…

Great series, and Parody is a valid way of using copyrighted video. There should have been no reason for YouTube to take it down. It was probably some media mongrel at the 4Kids that was browsing and said, “Oh, there’s a clip of Yu-Gi-Oh, better fire off an e-mail to YouTube…”

Anyway, keep up the great work LK.

Signed,
A Friend

Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridges Series is like amazing! Like Mittopotahis said it isn’t copyright, just taking a bit (and we mean abit) of an episode and putting a new voice on it. I want it pack. Youtube have gone too far! *Gasps* Yes they have! You have my vot

Much Love
P.S. I hope this works!

I think that Mittopotahis makes an excellent point: People who make YouTube music videos for TV shows and movies are doing the exact same thing, only ripping off the video AND the audio. This is RIDICULOUS, and YouTube should be ashamed. I absolutely support LittleKuriboh, TAS, and this petition! ~ Aluriaphin

i have already signed but since i did i have seen many responses and that youtube has been taken over by suits and that it is no longer a useful place to post videos or anything else. I would suggest to all users who have videos that you care about on this site to start moving them to a more worthy system.

Signed.

I still am trying to figure out why would YouTube would actually take YGO: Abridged Series. Like what the guy says, its like an AMV, so there should be no point in that. Also counting how many other REAL Yugioh episode that can be actually found in YouTube and yet I don’t see nothing much about them against those. Also, its not really known as copyright infringement, since LittleKuribo isn’t really making a profit out of it.

Parodying is legally allowed. The Abridged Series is merely a parody. While it does make fun of the dub, it is fully dependant on the dub’s existance, therefor does not altogether discredit said dub. Check out Japan. People can not only make fanworks based on popular media, but can make money off of said fanworks, and Japan does just fine! LK is making no money from this. Therefore, there is NO REASON to take down his or other fanworks. Thank you.

DueelQueen signs her name.
Heh, I bet the only reason LittleK’ was picked on is because he’s more popular then the orig YGO show is. He also has more viewers then 4Kids. [4Kids got jealous.] Google may own UTube, but I bet it was 4Kids who put pressure on Google 2 take LK’s vids down. I blame 4Kids. Those b*stards!

I’m signing. I want the Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged Series back, goddammit.
Practically all the stuff on youtube is copied from somewhere else, like music videos, and whole episodes of TV shows in fact, so why are they taking down the Agridged Series when it clearly isn’t a whole episode, and it’s him that’s doing all the talking?

All of you collectivist idiots signing this apparently don’t grasp the fact that someone created the original work, and that they’re the only ones who have rights to distribute, edit, or sell it. You backward little communists can’t seem to grasp the idea that nothing is free, and nothing should be.

First of all; parodying original, copyrighted work is protected under the fair use policy. Which is why teachers are permitted to photocopy textbooks and distribute the printouts to their students without getting hounded by authors. Second of all, what does communism have to do with any of this? Do you even know what communism means or are you just throwing the word around in a desperate attempt to sound intelligent? Ask Santa for a dictionary next year, kiddo.

Signage! Question – how precisely are you going to get youtube’s attention for this? I would really like to see the abridged series back.. it’s like, an endless source of amusement for me and my friends and you’re right, it is just like an amv. I don’t think it counts as being copyright infringement because little kuriboh is not making any money from it. at all.

give back ygh:as!

i sign we have nearly 2000 now! there are other ways we can protest like the chain messageing people do like save little kuriboh copy and past 3 videos etc. but dont copy this one seriously. i mean it. u other peiple decide what it to be. more methods but im not gonna say

Eh. Good Idea but I’d rather it be on google video only. I like having the option of watching it AND downloading it if I wish. And the latter is what I usually do. And I hate how all the google video search results are tainted with youtube links. No offense anyone but I like to download vids to watch on my ipod.

Little Kuriboh is not making money nor does he claim to own Yu-Gi-Oh! I belive his files were wrongfully taken down. He doesn’t post full episodes nor is he taking money away from the company that owns it.

I suport this petition

-Peorth Undead

Signed. Copyright infringment? Feh. More like certain lawyers have sticks shoved way too far up their butts.
LittleKuriboh even says “Yu-Gi-Oh is owned by Kazuki Takahashi” in the description for every episode.
Hope someone will notice this.

signed
To youtube: How is it copyright infringement when 1. He gives credit to the owner of Yugioh and 2. he doesnt benenfit in anyway from it except with fame? Please bring back the Abridge series for u have no valid reason to put a halt to it.

i think its pathetic how people think that putting videos on youtube will make the people who run it actually see it… this si quite pathetic and everyone is complaing when the problem isnt as big as u think it is. LK can put his vids back on and NOTHING will happen! they arent going to be removed again theyll jsut have to be rewatched! this is not as big of a deal as people r acting liek it is…

I’m signing, Little Kuriboh is a genius and the abridged series should definitely be allowed. These people are being ridiculous; he even said that Yugioh belonged to Kazuki Takahashi.
They had a reason to ban Lilaskin because he was taking the dialogue from the original japanese version and redubbing episodes, but he didn’t state that it was him doing the voices only and got banned. However, they cannot ban Little Kuriboh for the same reason. They’re just being ridiculous.

signed, Zephray

i just hope you know, youtube won’t change their mind no matter what we try. They’re being sued by Viacom for “copyright infringement” as we speak for the same deal. So they’re not going to make any acceptions. If you wanna see Yu-Gi-Oh! TAS, just go to LittleKuriboh’s new sites

I am signing, and would make my own video response like so many people have, except, my voice is dead right now. I fully support the Yu-Gi-Oh abriged series. I realy hope youtube gets it’s act together, deleting only what needs to be deleted, and hope LittleKuriboh can get his rights back!

“Several EXCLUSIVE rights typically attach to the holder of a copyright: * to produce copies or reproductions of the work and to sell those copies (including, typically, electronic copies) * to import or export the work * to create derivative works (works that adapt the original work) * to perform or display the work publicly * to sell or assign these rights to others”
(continued…)

COnsider Tha Wulf’s named signed on the imaginary petition! Seriously, It’s only copyright infringement if there’s an intention to profit from something that doesn’t belong to that individual. Yu-gi-oh is basically a redubbed parody that actually makes it more enjoyable to tolerate than the damn watered down 4kids shit. Parodies are the ultimate pleasure! Suck my hairy balls Viacom!

I agree because if someone who could say draw and colour about five minutes worth of yugioh and put a dubbed voice on it then that couldnt be infringement and neither should this. its a parody only a significantly funnier version made by someone else. littlekuriboh also makes his own jokes.

Signed

…In america

Signed. Tell your friends about this video and ask THEM to sign as well.

If Youtube won’t listen, then try Metacafe and all the other good websites that don’t go overboard.

In fact, Wikipedia has gone overboard as well; removing the page about the Abridged series. The same thing happened with Sega and YTMND when they thought people would mistake the YTMNDs for the real thing.

On snap! What littleKuriboh does is an art form! youtube recently have just gone too far with the copyright laws! I say, let the people have their fun, His work is satire! Did campbells soup call copyright on Andy Warhol? I don’t think so.

Viva la revolution~!

  1. I have to say, Yugioh Abridged is probably one of the funnier things on YouTube, but instead they take this off and keep crap like the Numa Numa stuff. I mean honestly, wtf.
