The H3H3 vs Matt Hoss: It is over.

The H3H3 vs Matt Hoss: It is over.
I am not going to go through the entire history, but another YT person sued h3h3 over some butt-hurt feelings. H3 announced it on Twitter. In the end, the Judge made a judgment in the case.
From Tech Crunch, ((The key evidence in the record consists of the Klein and Hoss videos themselves,” Forrest writes. “Any review of the Klein video leaves no doubt that it constitutes critical commentary of the Hoss video; there is also no doubt that the Klein video is decidedly not a market substitute for the Hoss video. For these and the other reasons set forth below, defendants’ use of clips from the Hoss video constitutes fair use as a matter of law.” ))
H3's video didn't replace the original video and came back as review/parody more than anything else. The judge also dismissed the defamed aspect of the lawsuit. So, yeah this is a win for critics of work and parody.

I wouldn't put it past Matt Hoss to sue them again. Right now, his YouTube page is tanked and he has come across as a sensitive person that can't take a joke. That is just an opinion, Matt Hoss. Don't sue me.  
I'd love to hear Hoss' side of the story.
