The Digital Millennium Copyright Act is a law enacted by the US in 1998 that governs copyright issues relating to digital content on the internet. It has also been interpreted as a way for YouTube, Facebook, and other companies to essentially force users into stifling their creative output. This was brought to the forefront in 2014 with two very specific examples: a small company called Game Reviews and a much larger one called Turner Broadcasting, Inc. [TBS]

It was uploaded to the site on October 4, 2008 by user Murr_Rae, and was titled ‘TBS v.
