Tencent Issued a Copyright Strike on Dota 2 & Took Down All the videos on Chinese TikTok

TikTok is a social media platform for creating, sharing, and discovering short videos. And recently they got complaints from users that their non-Tencent game video got taken down by Tencent including WOW and Dota 2 even though these two games don’t belong to Tencent.

This happened because of the DMCA strike launched by Tencent. Back in 2019, Tencent announced that “Game-play videos that contain footage of Tencent-owned games are also owned by Tencent ” and after that Tencent issued a copyright strike on their gameplay video, and after that many videos on TikTok were removed. After the recent incidents, TikTok showed that none of these two games are owned by Tencent and those videos were taken down wrongly. TikTok tried to find out if the reported videos were Tencent’s IP or not but they failed. TikTok is also working on recovering the reported videos as soon as possible. Tencent’s CEO and TikTok’s CEO had bad blood many years ago and it is still going on. Tencent intentionally or unintentionally took down the videos even though they do not own any of those games. Many users are trying to find out the reasons behind this incorrect ban.
