Samsung to sue Galaxy Note 7 parody videos
Samsung appears to have filed copyright claims against YouTube videos mocking its recalled Galaxy Note 7 handset.
Many gamers have showcased a modification to video game Grand Theft Auto V, in which sticky bombs were switched with exploding Samsung phones.
But some have reported that their videos have been blocked on YouTube following a copyright complaint.
Critics have warned that trying to remove gamers’ videos will only draw more attention to them.
