IGN Copied my Dead Cells Review: What do I do?



I published my Dead Cells review last week and today IGN put out their written and video reviews today. It’s kind of flattering but the gentlemen doing the review 100% had my video up on his computer while he was writing his review for Dead Cells and copied from a lot of my script. The entire structure of my video is copied and many sentences are almost identical. What does one even do about this and does this devalue his review or does his score still count? [Update: review has been taken down]

  1. Honestly it pisses me off when people take things from smaller producers/channels thinking "no one will notice." It's not theirs yet they somehow feel as though they can take it. Now, if a game is simple enough so that almost all reviews will be similar, that's one thing. But when it's the exact same progression through the video, borderline copy pasted quotes, and straight up laziness? That's where there's a problem.
    The issue with thinking "no one will notice if I take this from a smaller channel" is that if you're big enough, someone will notice. People think they're untouchable until they trip and fall.

  2. Yeah the IGN review is an almost word for word script of yours, under copy of intellectual property you could file a claim against them since your speech is being used for monetary gain by a competing group.
