    If you had a world record speedrun uploaded to YouTube, the Guinness World Records might have tried to copyright claim it earlier today. Record holders began to notice that the world record-keeping organization was copyright claiming dozens upon dozens of speedrun videos after requesting permission from some content creators to re-upload the speedruns on their official channel. These were not copyright strikes, therefore none of the channels were affected negatively by the claim, but the monetization of each video was frozen. When the issue was brought to the attention of Guinness World Records, they stated that it had been an error with YouTube's automatic content ID system, and that they were working to undo all of the falsely made claims against the speedrunners. Guinness also mentioned that if any speedrunners are still affected, they can reach out to their official Twitter account to resolve any copyright problems.

    Well, at least it's an error and Guiness isn't going to go full Disney on YouTube content.

    Youtube copyright claims being false? never. I could upload a video of myself defecating and Procter & Gamble would file a claim against me out of spite for not using Charmin

    Haha I saw the video by Karl Jobst earlier today about this.

    The Guinness World Record account promptly replied to the video and the comment has since been pinned.

    Hopefully the mishaps is solved by now.

    Someday we're going to get our Karma and an alien race will come here claiming that we infringed on the name and likeness of their planet (Earth), and blow us up. :P

    "Waste" is subjective. Look at all the people watching NHL or NFL or NBA on their TV. Hell, people pay money to watch this stuff on their television. It's all about what people concern as a waste. I like speedruns because it shows what years of dedication can do, and sometimes you pick up on a trick or a strat you can incorporate into your own gameplay.
