Glad I'm not the only one who got contacted. The scumbag is throwing around his trademark notice and he doesn't even have one: https://www.trademarkelite.com/trademark/trademark-detail/88474539/DINO-HAZARD

Current status of trademark = "Dead"

The Dino Hazard game seems pretty dead too. He has a YouTube channel, but it's all about dinosaurs. Nothing about a dinosaur game: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjcEWCkuafL02yvkujCwL4w

The Steam page for the game is here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1287540/DINO_HAZARD/

Would be a shame if it got review bombed!

We were also contacted. I think the content producer should just be warned about it, but it hasn't been flagged yet.

I'm trying to talk to the developer to better understand what he means.

You don't need to have a valid registered trademark. A registered mark only serves to increase your capacity to defend your trademark. A Common Law mark is sufficient within the US which specifies first to use and first to market. HOWEVER, that doesn't change the fact that we may be looking at trademarks within 2 different countries AND it still in now way changes the fact that the guy is attempting to claim copyright on YouTube videos for a Trademark dispute. Which is still illegal.

Just got this message from the Dinohazard dev: 

"When you completely erase the video, Youtube automatically removes the flag."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that 100% bullshit? A Copyright strike doesn't just magically go away when you delete a video!!

I think the only way it goes away is if you appeal it and you win the appeal.
