It’s a simple fact; if a game comes out, people are going to mod it. As soon as a big-name title releases, the modding community gets to work creating all kinds of weird, wild, and wacky modifications. That’s exactly what’s going on with Mortal Kombat 1, and apparently Warner Bros. isn’t happy about one YouTube channel that’s spreading the word.

YouTuber ToastedShoes has shared that Warner Bros., the publisher of Mortal Kombat, is going after his YouTube channel due to the videos he’s created showcasing Mortal Kombat 1 mods. The YouTuber says they received an “IP Infringement Notification” from Warner Bros., and if they don’t remove all of their Mortal Kombat 1 videos, the channel will be hit with copyright strikes for each video.

If ToastedShoes were to ignore the requests, the subsequent copyright strikes would essentially shutter his channel. ToastedShoes is quite baffled by this response as there have been no problems with his Mortal Kombat 1 mod videos since the title launched, and furthermore, Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has shared MK1 mod videos himself.

Warner Bros. hasn’t shared any further clarification on this matter, but we’ll try to get a statement.
