The GPD has a strange interpretation of copyright

A Chinese company known for its handheld consoles uses other content on its own YouTube channel without citing the source.

The handheld console market has brought Steam Deck exactly what you would expect. The other players have activated themselves in order to show off something extra in exchange for the development of Valve, which is not an easy thing to look at the price of Steam Deck anyway.


The Chinese GPD however, he didn’t approach things from exactly the direction that would be appreciated, as the company began to compare Steam Deck to its own GPD Win 3 handheld console. That alone wouldn’t be a problem, but To their YouTube channel they upload material that takes Valve-related content from another YouTube channel and then compares the measured performance with their own system with a non-uniform test environment and little information.

Of course, any company is free to decide what tests to do with two systems, but the problem is that they get the content for Steam Deck without even labeling the source. Mostly otherwise a YouTube channel it’s about. Excerpts from the videos found here, and this method can be seen in the embeddings above and below for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Obviously, a channel called doesn’t like it either, and also filed a copyright notice YouTube, but it hasn’t worked much so far. In addition, Liam Dawe, a GamingOnLinux page owner also tried to call On Twitter GPD’s attention to the way in which other content is used is not very ethical, but instead of answering the GPD blocked the complainant’s access to the company’s Twitter page.

The whole situation is hard to understand because really all GPD would have to do is write to the owner of the channel and agree on the source designation. On YouTube, basically everyone cares to have more viewers, and that’s why not many channels tend to object if someone else wants to use an excerpt from their video, as it can be an advertisement served properly. And if the Chinese company in question doesn’t want to provide a link to a channel sharpened on Steam Deck, they will need to get a copy from Valve’s console, with a corporate background that can hardly cause a problem.
