According to a report from Kotaku, Activision has reportedly been striking videos that shows glitches in Call of Duty titles, especially some of the map glitches in Advanced Warfare. An exert from a Machinima email to partners stated that Activision has been “issuing strikes on videos showing glitches.”

Activision responded to Kotaku stating that they’re operating under the same policy has always, which means they’re only going after videos that may help other players cheat.

“We’re excited that so many fans are having fun playing the game and posting videos of their gameplay. We love watching the videos ourselves. Occasionally, some folks post videos that promote cheating and unfair exploits. As always, we keep an eye out for these videos—our level of video claims hasn’t changed. We are appreciative of the community’s support in helping to ensure that everyone has the best playing experience possible.”

But, Machinima is stating that Activision is going further than that – taking down many videos that have been showing off Call of Duty’s less polished elements. A search on YouTube shows that there are still many Call of Duty glitches videos still up and untouched.

Machinima issued the following statement:

“Recently Machinima notified it’s network partners that posting content about Call of Duty videos may receive a strike if flagged by Activision. Machinima was prompted to take this action in order to inform its network partners so that they would remain in good standing on YouTube. When a channel receives a certain number of strikes it is possible that they may be blocked as a YouTube partner. Machinima’s actions are to protect not only its network partners, but its publisher partners as well.”
