I had made my own video showing my gameplay of GTA: Chinatown Wars. I uploaded to Youtube as usual. The next morning, it was taken down. I had a message that said the following:

I felt so bad, cause not one of my gameplay videos has had any problems with copyright issues until this one. I know for a fact that there are more videos on Youtube under that same tittle, but why did Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc went after me? If they would have done a little more research, they could have found out that I only use my videos for review reasons. Is that not allowed?
Oh, well, I guess I'm just a little man and they are a big company. They can oppress whoever they target. So I cannot retaliate, and the last thing I want is to have my Youtube account banned.
