GTA 5 AI Mod Removed At Take-Two's Request, Without Modder's Knowledge

Bloc, the creator of a GTA AI mod that allows players to speak to NPCs, has seen their work shut down by Take-Two, the parent company of Grand Theft publisher Rockstar Games. Eurogamer was first to report on Bloc's mods being removed from several platforms, in addition to the video showcasing it on YouTube.

In a statement posted on YouTube, Bloc explained that the removals--which ranged from an installation guide on cloud-computing platform Netlify and the mod itself, hosted on NexusMods--were sudden and unanticipated.

"Take-Two Interactive hit my channel with copyright strike about my video on GTA V mod and YouTube removed the video immediately without giving any chance to explain myself," wrote Bloc. "The reason for this takedown shown by Take-Two Interactive to YouTube was because I used their [Grand Theft Auto V] in the video. 

No one from Take-Two Interactive contacted and ask me anything prior to this, they just took down the video out of nowhere." Bloc also adds that a copyright strike on their channel "hinders my ability to monetize for the upcoming three months and remains as a mark on the channel."
