You Tubers (the big ones anyways) should get together and form some kind of association / union which would give them a bit more force to protect themselves. You get a few people boycotting and that's not going to stop anyone. But a united group of the top 500 let's players? That might give them pause.

I picked up the Lego movie game yesterday when it was on sale for $14.  I loved Lego City but haven't loved the superhero games as much so I hope it is more like the Lego City.

That kind of already exists.  Polaris, (which I believe AJ is a member of) provides some blanket protection in cases where streamers get hit with take down notices.  The problem is that it prevents them from losing their channels; it canít do anything to combat the practices that put them in danger in the first place.

There are some other large groups as well but Polaris is one of the most powerful since it is technically owned by Disney.

It isn't. Lego Marvel Superheroes is more like undercover than Lego Movie.

A multi-channel network really cannot do a whole lot to protect an individual from claims. Really the only service a MCN can provide exposure at the cost of a share of the individuals intake. When the Call of Duty exploit/glitch videos were being claimed by Activision the networks told their partners to not touch the clips in question as they couldn't help them with the claims. Regardless of whether you agree multiplayer exploits should be shared, saying that it violates copyright is laughable at best and murky at worst.

Coupled with the fact that YouTube does nothing to punish those, Orchard Music Group for example, that continually claim content that was never theirs to begin with or claim the content again that they previously gave up on. Adding to the stupidity a channel operator can never appeal more than two claims at a time or risk having their channel shut down regardless of whether the claims are valid or not. If a company wants to be a dick they can tie down a video for months basically killing any revenue the user may have made.

Really what the channels need is for the courts to hear a case on whether or not a game company (It may end up being more broad than that) can claim a let's play or any recorded footage if the person creating it adds to it (Transformative work). Hopefully they could also join up with the EFF to provide good legal counsel.

I know Video Games Awesome had counterclaimed a video to the point where if the claimant again asserted that they didn't have the right it would go to court. But I do not know if the claim was dropped or not.

What needs to happen is that the businesses that send DMCA notices and other crap like listed above need to actually be responsible for doing so in the first place. There IS a fine for sending a false one...which everybody on the planet (at least those who generally send the claims anyhow) is completely immune to getting hit with.
