Word is going around that Vox Media, the owner of The Verge, is going after YouTubers that vlogged about the infamous Gaming PC Build Guide from The Verge. Is you may remember, this video was posted in September, and quickly went viral because it contained a shocking amount of errors.
The video has long been deleted, but now Vox Media is bringing the matter back into the spotlight by serving copyright notices to at least some YouTubers that made fun of the video:
Vox Media, parent company of The Verge, has long since deleted the video after a massive amount of backlash and mockery. While it was an entertaining video to say the least, I’m glad it was removed so that no newcomer to the custom PC world would have accidentally followed their poor building advice. The problem today stems from the fact that Vox Media appears to be now trying to scrub the internet of the video by going after critical TechTubers and other YouTubers who made fun of them. The first victim is Kyle of Bitwit who used his caricature Lyle to lambaste The Verge’s video.
