Indian Court is Forcing PewDiePie to Take Down Videos Now

Today has been a normal one in the world of PewDiePie vs T-Series as a lawsuit by T-Series has led the Delhi’s High Court ruling that YouTube must remove two videos PewDiePie made that were joke diss tracks against the company, as reported by Indian legal blog Bar and Bench.

The interim order was granted by a Single Judge Bench of Justice Jayant Nath in a suit preferred by T-Series owner Super Cassettes Pvt Ltd., seeking to permanently restrain Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg, better known as PewDiePie, from uploading the songs titled ‘T-Series Diss Track/Bitch Lasagna’ and ‘Congratulations’.

It is T-Series’ case that the lyrics of the two songs are, on the face of it, defamatory, disparaging, insulting and offensive.

Man, I like this even less than I like watching PewDiePie’s videos.

Just a side note here, I can’t believe this is still going on. Everyone knows T-Series is going to end up the biggest channel on YouTube, but for some reason people keep showing up to follow PewDiePie because of that weird campaign going on.

Anyway, I don’t like living in a world where an Indian court tells an American company to make a Swedish guy take down his videos and he does. It’s kind of like a cyberpunk nightmare.

But we now have the courts getting involved in YouTuber beefs. This is what our world is. The countries in the world with the least freedom of speech are going to tell multinational corporations what they can and can’t say, and those corporations are going to listen because money, and we’re going to live in a world where adult humans connect only to children’s media and write endless think pieces about how anything that handles mature subject matter is problematic and shouldn’t be made and oh God it’s already happened.
