* In April 2015, Super Bunnyhop made a video concerning Creator/{{Konami}} based on the information that he was told about the company.[[note]] Namely, the company was trying to downsize by treating its employees bad enough to quit, since [[ValuesDissonance it's more acceptable to run someone out of their job than fire them]].[[/note]] [[SmallNameBigEgo Konami didn't like this]], so they attempted to use [=YouTube=]'s copyright claims system to have the video removed. They briefly succeed by claiming about 29 seconds of ''VideoGame/MetalGearRisingRevengeance'' footage used in the video. However, the video was restored by ''[=YouTube=]'' because Konami didn't properly use the copyright takedown.[[note]]This is the first recorded instance of [=YouTube=] actually going out of its way to prevent abuse of its copyright takedown.[[/note]] Super Bunnyhop then made a follow-up video. Unlike most most examples, he used the opportunity to point out that the controversy was actually beneficial for everybody, including Konami.

* ''VideoGame/NoMansSky'' suffered a good bit when a Reddit user was able to purchase an early copy of the game and posted his findings to the site. Many fans were upset over this, but the creators stated that fans should just ignore the findings, that this sort of thing isn't the real deal. Even more, Sony ended up forcing Youtube to take down a video from Creator/RoosterTeeth's "The Know" news channel talking about the findings, which two of the many hosts [[WhatTheHellHero called out the company for when they found out how they did it]]. This is a game that also did an embargo on early reviews, which sent up a lot of red flags.

* North Korea's protest against the film ''Film/TheInterview'' got it a lot more publicity than it would have on its own. Even its banning hadn't stopped public attention, as the issue of the film's cancelled premiere turned into a full out matter of freedom of speech. A significant amount of analysts even predict that at some point the whole film would get leaked, either by different hackers or those who worked on the film, just to see what all the fuss is about. Sony did it one better: they officially released the film on [=YouTube=], who put it on the front page. Even further, North Korea particularly objected to one specific scene [[spoiler: where Kim Jong-un, caught in an exploding helicopter, dies in slow-motion as his skin melts and his head explodes.]] Guess which particular scene quickly circulated throughout the Internet?
