Deja Vu: Critical IG Videos Getting Flagged

Feels like it's 2008 in here. Various videos bashing the Irate Gamer are being taken down for "copyright infringement". Whether they're parodies, commentaries, or even simple "Bores n Doors" they're facing the illegal iron fist of... Cry Wolf Productions?

Back when the first flaggings started, they were also for copyright infringement. But the company was Y2B Productions, Bores' little one-man company that legally has no copyright and thus the flagging was illegal. After about a year he came to his senses and stopped trying to hide the videos pointing out why he's wrong as the task was futile and it only made him look like a bigger douche.

But who is Cry Wolf Productions? Right now, nobody knows. Searches have brought up a distribution company located in Texas, far away from where Bores lives. It could just be a fake name for a group of trolls that don't like seeing their idol getting bashed. It could be Bores using a new name, knowing that Y2B Productions would immediately give away what he's doing.

So as a warning to anyone with anti-IG videos on YouTube, put them on private. Wait for this bullshit to blow over and bring them back up. That's all I can really say.

  1. What's wierd is that even a review (a neutral one btw) was also removed by that same company

  2. Yeah, I should of put them on private, but I did say I was going to redue my "Tekken" rant, once this whole thing is over. Not sure if I should put that video I did on NC17 on private as well, since I only used Bores footage to show how "original" Kenny was. But to be safe, its on private.

    ReplyDelete
  3. "Cry Wolf"? Really? That doesn't sound suspicious at all... the name basically gives it away. Crying wolf... I guess Bores thought that was clever or something. Hopefully someone hacks him and gets the videos un-flagged. Or the whole thing just blows over. Either way.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Also, does anyone have Bores' phone number from the DVD? I Googled "cry wolf productions" and found this: http://www.manta.com/c/mtg4k21/cry-wolf-productions-inc

    If the number there is Bores, that gives him away immediately. If it isn't Bores, someone could still call and find out what all this flagging is about.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I wasn't sure about the safety of setting videos to private so I went ahead and deleted the other two Bores n Doors videos I had up. Heh, I was even expecting copyright infringement on those videos that I deleted shortly after considering how dumb YouTube's copyright policies are.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I don't know if I looked it up right or not, but I went to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office website and looked up "cry wolf productions". Unless it's deep in there and using the search engine doesn't go that far or whatever, there's no trademark. Wouldn't that mean whoever's flagging the videos is doing so illegally?

    ReplyDelete
  7. @skyrunner Yes. That means these are illegal flaggings.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Look like Bores didn't learn a thing from last time then. Now someone needs to call that number and see who picks up. Maybe ask them about the flaggings...

    ReplyDelete
  9. …Really? Hiding behind a company that isn't yours, Bores? …Yeah, that's really pathetic.

    ReplyDelete
  10. The number is not valid. It can not be completed as dialed.

    ReplyDelete
  11. i just tried the number and it doesnt work it says please enter area code and the area code is 214 and it dont work so if there is any other solutions let us know

  13. No, we are not posting Bores' home phone number.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hold on, I'm not going to dismiss the idea that this is actually Bores, but I think it's probably one of his insane fanboys posing as him perhaps. I don't really see how Bores can go a year flagging videos, then taking a two year break, and then go back to flagging videos.

    It doesn't make sense to me.

    ReplyDelete
  15. When has Boring Man EVER made sense?

    He just seems to think he can get away with it this way perhaps.

    ReplyDelete
  16. well he cant hide forever he should just at least admit what he is doing because people like us are getting flagged and some people have gotten suspended because of this do you think we should file a counter dmca claim or just forget it because he did this a few years ago and people were pissed and now it is happening again. he cant do this and expect to get away with it

    ReplyDelete
  17. That little turd got my YouTube account cancelled. I had several videos mocking the Irate gamer using clips from AVGN, Nostalgia Critic, etc. Then I get a notice that "Cry Wolf" productions had them removed for copyright infringement. Parody or commentary falls under fair use and isn't infringement. If he gets so butthurt about these YouTube clips, he needs to just stop making videos all together.

    Also, someone should let DLAbaoaqu know so all his ICBINAVGN stuff doesn't get deleted too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. If Youtube makes it THAT easy to flag videos, it was only a matter of time till some reviewer / fanboy will exploit the hell out of it.
    And if Bores never faced any repercussions in 2008, why should the current flagger?

    ReplyDelete

  20. Sadly it is that easy evidenced by the lengths LIAT went to to remove anything critical of him even to the point of using bots to auto flag videos. Bores may be resulting to similar tactics.

    ReplyDelete
  21. On a related note, if it is Boring Man doing the flagging it just shows how hypocritical he actually is given the number of clips he stole outright in his 'History of Video Games' video series.

    If he's trying to stifle criticism doesn't he know this is the wrong way to do it?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have a theory on why he suddenly used a different "company" to flag videos. Not only to cover his ass, but because it enabled him to take down y2b2010, since Youtube wouldn't take down a video from what they thought was the same company.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Just found that DLAbaoaqu deleted all his stuff with Boring Man in it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I hope he puts it back up on Blip. It's not fair that he can't voice his opinions.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @asw2457

    i mentioned that in the last blog. he didn't delete it, he just made it private. the videos are still there, only specific people can watch it (for now)

    @Isolder74

    i think asalieri's blip channel had the same problems as his youtube, so that might not help at all. also, bores has been a perfect example of hypocrisy long before this.

    Are you talking about me? Good thing I'm atheist, so I don't care in the slightest. Also, your comment was terribly worded. I thought we were God's creation?

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Charlie Are you the one doing all this false flagging?

    ReplyDelete
  32. It's pathetic how Boresdozer: A) Can't take constructive criticism at all; B) Fakes copyright "infringement" flagging, completely oblivious what fair use is; C) Trolls people in PM when he's confronted about it.

    Considering Boring Man likely (key word: likely) has a friend or two that are YouTube moderators...I'm very afraid my account could be next to go down.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh hey Charlie, nice to see you're still failing at trolling. Once again, here are my questions. Answer them and I'll stop bugging you about them.

    "Tell me, what was the point of this (bothering the good commenters of this blog just because they have a differing opinion than yours)? Besides wasting our time and making yourself look like more of an idiot than you've already proven yourself to be, I mean.

    With that out of the way, answer me this: why are you so diligent in defending Bores? He probably doesn't know who you are. I doubt he'd care even if he did. And you know, I hope you enjoy that whole fanboy defense thing while it lasts, because all things come to an end. That includes your precious Irate Gamer. What will you defend after that ends?"

    ReplyDelete
  34. Also, Charlie, if you're the one flagging videos... you know you're breaking the law, right? Using a non-existent company to flag videos without good reason (and no, taking down a video because they're talking against Bores is NOT a good reason) is quite illegal.

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Chucky Charlington Jones III
    Glad you took my advice and came back to fail once more.

  36. If all else fails, take the batdanmn approach and keep making new accounts.

  37. Apparently Season 2 & 3 are coming in August.
    5 bucks says not many people will buy it.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh yes, I forgot to mention that. On Facebook he said Volume 2 AND 3 are coming in August.

    Why not just make one big volume? Hell, why bother at all?

    ReplyDelete
  39. He's a money-grubbing idiot, why else?

    ReplyDelete
  40. I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to put his shit on iTunes, but they wouldn't put it up for $4.99 per episode.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I wouldn't buy it even if it came with a free copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga.

    ReplyDelete
  42. According to GBAura (who mentioned this on DLAbaoaqu's channel), Cry Wolf Productions is apparently not only run by Bores, but also by Jfreedan and retrogamer3. Yup, three people working together to take down any videos that criticize their work.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I suspect it could be Karbia Yuan. He said he flagged DLAbaoaqu's videos and many of his followers.

    BTW, long-time reader, BatDan. Great blog.

    ReplyDelete
  44. …Do I have the right to compare Bores' actions to what LifeInATent did a few months ago?

    ReplyDelete
  45. I wish Chris Bores would pull a Uwe Boll and just challenge his critics to a fight.

    ReplyDelete
  46. It isn't Bores. I just found a completely un-Irate Gamer related that got false flagged by "Cry Wolf Productions". It's just some dickhead taking advantage of the fact that YouTube can't tell its ass from a hole in the ground.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Y'know, I wonder what the Archfiend would have to say about this? He's usually good with this sort of thing.

    ReplyDelete
  48. @ TabrisMacbeth

    so, what was the video that was flagged about? was it related to any other reviewers?

    ReplyDelete
  49. God I hate censorship. It is as if the fair use part was forgotten by everyone with a huge ego.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Bulletin on The Archfiend's channel:

    "Can anyone offer an ounce of proof that Chris Bores is behind 'Cry Wolf Productions' recent false flaggings of numerous videos? No?

    K, now shut up."

    ReplyDelete
  51. @blueluigi

    I wouldn't be surprised either. KLibertyJohn + RetroRapist3 + Cry Wolf Productions/Bores in a Texan disguise = 3 strikes and you're out.

    @PanicPagoda

    Bores doesn't have 1.000.000+ subscribers, so it's not interesting/profitable for him.

    ReplyDelete
  52. ZOMG Did anyone see My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic live? THEY RAPED TWILIGHT SPARKLE, APPLEJACK AND RAINBOW DASH NUFF' SAID!!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. @Epic I wouldn't put it past that creepy lunatic. He is to Irate Gamer what Game Dude and Retrogamer3 is to AVGN.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I don't follow what this is about BatDan? Could you link me to a Cry Wolf Productions video? Is this a suspected Bores made-up company or is this another company pretending to be Bores or making parody videos? I don't understand.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Why do you all still try to communicate with Charlie? He's just a troll with not the slightest interest in intelligent conversations. Just ignore him.

    And I hope this whole "Cry Wolf" incident won't attract copycats. This is a dark age for Youtube...

    ReplyDelete
  56. this shows that youtube is dying slowly

  57. @TTBurger88:

    If YouTube force those huge ass thumbnails on our channels as seen on the Cosmic Panda beta layout, that will be the last nail in the coffin for me.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Guys, stop paying attention to the kid. You all know for a fact that he won't respond to you logically. he has fun watching you all put @Charlie in your comments. just let him fuck off on his own.

    ReplyDelete
  59. me too u know what i say we make videos bashing crywolfproductions and see what they will do i mean they can't spend everyday on youtube false flagging videos and getting people suspended and stuff because if they are gonna take our videos down and get people suspended then we have a right to bash them and stuff

  65. Damn it, either one of 2 things

    A) Blip TV is beign retarded and it doesnt show me the channels of regular people on the search engine and only show the BlipTV partners and proles.

    B) King Flaggorah has reached Bliptv and deleted Asalieri's and Dooku from existence.

  68. LarryBundyJr confirmed that AnIrateGamerFan did all of the false flagging, not Cry Wolf.

    ReplyDelete
  69. My Bores n Doors was taken down. What pisses me off is how they send you to that Copyright School video, like they need to insult the intelligence of everyone who uses Bores's footage.

    ReplyDelete
  70. @LarryCooper
    So why do the messages people get when their videos get flagged say it was Cry Wolf? Perhaps he's just using another company's name for his own selfish purposes? Or maybe it's a company name he made up as an excuse to flag? Either way, surely there's a way to get him/her to stop?

    ReplyDelete
  71. Man, IG's new blooper video was just HILARIOUS! I just couldn't stop laughing!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Thank god, Bores' e3 coverage is finally over, and the last video he did was still pretty lame. The bloopers were not funny at all like the person two posts before mine claimed, they were the same as Bores other blooper videos.

    It also wasn't funny when Bores used Link's catchphrase from that piece of crap Zelda cartoon at the end. Heck, that line was lame back then, and it's lame today.

  73. I'm pretty sure Slow was being sarcastic.

  74. Maybe it's time to try this again....

    http://www.petitiononline.com/byebores/petition.html

    ReplyDelete
  75. I've been thinking about something. I used to think Bores would flag videos because he cannot take criticism, but then another theory presented itself. It starts with the reason why Bores started the Irate Gamer Show; Money. Now in any business, if there was any legitimate threat to the company's reputation, they would probably go out of their way to silence anyone who would taint their image, and that would include censoring comments.

    In the case of the Irate Gamer, I think Bores is censoring comments and removing videos because he thinks it will ruin his chances of raking in money from his fans. He probably thinks that if people continue to see these anti IG videos, maybe people will step back and ask themselves "Is this guy really legitimate? Maybe I shouldn't watch this guy."

    The less views Bores gets, the less money he gets to grub and spend it on God knows what. This is my view on the situation, I really doubt that a grown man in his thirties can't take criticism, at least, that's how I view it.

    ReplyDelete
  76. everybody get as many people as u can to sign the petition so we can get rid of him for good

    ReplyDelete
  77. hopefully youtube will read the petition and understand what is going on with this situation

    ReplyDelete
  78. So the person flagging the videos is some dumb fanboy using "Cry Wolf Productions", and not Bores. Why do I have a feeling AnIrateGamerFan might be Cyclopsis's sockpuppet account?

    @Gatuca

    Game Boob has another blip channel:

    http://blip.tv/thegameboobshow

    I still find it hypocritical that Jfreedan is buddies with someone that made fun of Vietnamese people (retrogamer3).

    ReplyDelete
  79. @vicviper592
    not only did AnIrateGamerFan take down the videos, but some of Chris' fanboys like lukestarkiller441 are defending him.

    ReplyDelete
  80. To the fanboys who want to defend the guy, just look for Guru Larry's comments on AnIrateGamerFan's channel

    ReplyDelete
  81. Apparently AnIrateGamerFan went to One176's channel and took down his IG related videos, along with the IG Joins Blistered Thumbs April Fools prank. He gloated to Guru Larry about the video being taken down on Youtube

    ReplyDelete
  82. Well, it seems the only evidence that AnIrategamerFan is the one flagging the videos is that he confessed to it. I'm sure most IG fanboys would love to falsely take the credit. Mnadtab and lukestarkiller probably would have taken credit had they thought of it first. Even Charlie falsely claimed he'd hacked BatDan's blogger account, this seems right up his alley as well.

    Still, anyone willing to take the credit should be equally willing to take the blame. They should ban both Bores and AnIrategamerFan from YouTube.

    I wouldn't be surprised to find that AnIrategamerFan just took credit for Bores's acts, or that of another IG fanboy. I wouldn't be surprised to find that Bores did it himself. I wouldn't be surprised if AnIrategamerFan is another one of Bores's sock-puppet accounts.

    @ Darthgamer

    Just because he's in his 30s doesn't mean he has the maturity or intellect of a 30 year old. I know from experience that he can not take criticism at all.

    ReplyDelete
  83. @Darthgamer:

    I don't think any company would swing the copyright infringement hammer if this flagging is illegal and can easily backfire.

    Besides, even if only half of Bores' fans are so fanatic as AnIrategamerFan or lukestarkiller, he doesn't have to fear that "hate videos" might change their mind.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I wonder if the Irate fanboys will false flag Linkara's IG parody.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Word of mouth says that Bores hates that someone has falsely flagged videos on his behalf and wants nothing to do with AnIrategamerFan.

    ...even though Bores has done the same thing before, and still has AnIrategamerFan on his 'friends' list....

    ReplyDelete
  86. @Doresh & Dave

    Very true, Bores doesn't really act mature. And yes, he probably doesn't have to fear the hard core fans changing their minds, but maybe people that don't obsess over things like internet reviewers. I just felt like pitching that idea and seeing what people would think about it.

    ReplyDelete
  87. @TTBurger88

    Yeah, online petitions are useless. You really think YouTube/Google is going to "fire" Bores just because a few people hate his work ?

  91. You know, previously I didn't want the irate gamer to leave because there are so many bad things about his videos that he's a good video material.

    But if he's going back to delete videos that speak bad of him, he shouldn't be on YouTube.

    However, I don't think a petition is gonna help.

    And even if the petition gets more signatures than the amount of subscribers the irate gamer has, I don't think YouTube is gonna give a shit, I'm sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Alright, I read more of the above comments, and apparently it wasn't Bores who filed those claims. That basically proves that YouTube is still incompetent and accept all bullshit copyright claims. I really hope it's not Bores who did this.

    But even so, I'm sick of YouTube accepting those claims.

    ReplyDelete
  93. what if we were to spam copyright claims against Bores? I doubt it would do anything since partners can do whatever the hell they want.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Don't bother, it won't do anything. I'm sure a lot of people flagged Shane Dawson's videos, and his channel is still up.

  95. @Blaze The Movie Fan
    Haters only managed to flag Shane Dawson's videos twice for copyright claim and offensive material (hint: Martin Luther King Jr. Speech). He has two strikes on his account and shouldn't be able to upload, but he is still uploading....
