Douyin users released Dota2, World of Warcraft game video, and Tencent complained of infringement, Douyin: Tencent had to delete a large-scale complaint
On November 24 news, Douyin officially released an announcement, stating that some users reported that their dota2, World of Warcraft and other game videos released on Douyin were removed from the shelves due to a complaint by Tencent. Douyin said that it has been verified that these Dota2 and World of Warcraft video links are indeed subject to infringement complaints by Tencent. Since 2019, Tencent has proposed that its game screens and game-related elements (including all game elements such as characters, skills, maps, etc.) appearing in videos posted by users shall be copyrighted or exclusively authorized by Tencent.
“Due to the large number of videos complained by Tencent, our staff failed to accurately determine whether the relevant game belongs to Tencent, which caused some unreasonable complaints by Tencent to be erroneously implemented.” Douyin said, Tencent requested through complaints, prosecutions and other means. TikTok removes related videos created by users. We cannot agree with Tencent’s claims, but they must be handled in accordance with the law.
It is understood that Dota2 is an online battle game, developed by the well-known American game company Vavle, and is operated by Perfect World as an agent in China, not a game owned by Tencent.
Public information shows that since 2019, Tencent has initiated more than 20 lawsuits against headline products such as Douyin, Watermelon Video, and Today’s Headlines, claiming that the copyrights of game videos such as “Glory of the King” and “League of Legends” made by players belong to Tencent itself. Relevant videos and live broadcasts are removed from the audio. According to people familiar with the matter, Tencent has sent more than 300 lawyer letters to Douyin regarding game videos.
