Destiny 2 creator – Game developer Bungie has sued YouTuber Lord Nazo for 7.6 million dollars (about 7.2 million euros). On behalf of CSC Global, an organization that protects music rights to the Bungie game Destiny 2, he sent nearly a hundred fake copyright claims to YouTubers, writes The Game Post Friday.
Lord Nazo, whose real name is Nicholas Minor, got a claim from Bungie himself in December last year for uploading songs from the Destiny 2 soundtrack.
The YouTuber then decided to send the same kind of claims to competitors.
He did so on behalf of CSC Global with the aim of taking videos from innocent channels offline, Bungie reports in the indictment. “In doing so, he caused a disruption within the group of people who play Bungie games.” In total, Lord Nazo allegedly sent 96 fraudulent claims.
Bungie also accuses the YouTuber of sending emails to CSC Global in which he made threats. The topics included texts such as ‘It’s your turn now’ and ‘Start running, the clock is ticking’. Recipients forwarded the emails to Bungie.
According to the indictment, Lord Nazo did not erase his traces properly. For example, the first load of claims came from the same IP address with which he logged in to Destiny 1 and Destiny 2.
Only after the media wrote about fake copyright claims in late March did the YouTuber switch to a VPN to hide his location.
