I like how this parody isn't even egregious, yet they take it down because they think it'll negatively affect perception of them

Once again, they've forgotten that the people who actually give them money watch them do this shit and decide that they don't have our interests as gamers at heart. To clarify, they're willing to throw false copyright strikes at something that's completely fair use - Their almost draconian DRM is why people raised hell in the first place. Don't they see how this could negatively effect their brand for no tangible gain?

I suppose they don't want to be connected to a political campaign, but who would honestly think that not taking this video down = EA's endorsement of Trump?

And in doing so they might as well have paid for Trump's television time to air this commercial. It went viral because of the censorship. There is hope, you're all awesome.

EA already has a perception problem, this only cements it. To aggressively go after it with bullshit takedowns exploiting these draconian laws only makes them look like complete cunts, not to mention it's insulting to Trump supporters to be this ultra cunty about it.

EA: That company that can go fuck itself, it's logo means 'fuck this product'.

They just pissed off the half off America with the most disposable income. Enjoy the broke SJW demographic.

Because at this point people have positive perception of EA.

Gamers are the ones upset at them right now, but I meant the mainstream media who will say "Oh look this company is indirectly endorsing Donald Trump" who people perceive as a racist.

I'm just glad to see him somewhere besides the Golf Course, frankly.

Oh, wait, he went to a baseball game in Cuba, that's right.

I would have thought that if they were trying to take this video down as frantically as the title claims, the first place it would have disappeared from would have been youtube, but it is still up and going there. Weird, given that pooptube is the poster child of DMCA claim craziness.
Honestly, I am not surprised EA is throwing out a DMCA claim on it, it has the whole 'Mass Effect' thing going on and DMCA claims are all the rage these days. But come on now, the title to this post makes it look like this is valuable information that is being censored by EA. FFS, of course EA are going to get all pissy about the whole mass effect thing. I am sure if someone whipped up a Bernie Sanders video with a 'Walking Dead' theme to it, somebody out there would poop out a DMCA turd.
Also, the information in this video is nothing new at all. It is the same old shit wrapped up in a slightly different coat. If you are pro Trump none of the info in the video will surprise you... It's why you are pro Trump! This isn't censorship, there is nothing to fight here. The video's creator figured he was being all clever using the whole Mass Effect thing, but all he did was stupidly give EA an easy reason to take a nice big shit on the video.

Well done on the whole panic mongering thing though.

I have become so cynical that I suspect that the reason the uploader deliberately used copyrighted material is so that it would be taken down (or so that he could say people are trying to take it down) and then he could cry martyr.

Same here! :D Streisand effect in action, I would likely not have even seen this video if EA hadn't tried to suppress it.

EDIT TO ADD: If you are joining in on the rehosting, make sure to alter the video somehow - otherwise YouTube will stop it from going through as a duplicate video. A quick way of doing this is through VLC media player: Open the Media menu > Convert/Save > Click 'Add' and select the source file > Click Convert/Save > Leave defaults alone, set output file location > Save.
