They're trying to copyright the term "react".
So if you posted a video like 'Potatoes React to Mashed Potatoes' or something without consent from the Fine Bros. It would be taken down.

Not only are they trying to trademark the word "react" but have also have elders reactkids react, as well as try watching this without laughing, etc. trademarked/applied for trademark.

They basically just want to monetize other peoples' contents that will be under their "React World" umbrella, otherwise, people could be penalized or their videos could be taken down if they make reaction videos that are "similar" to the Fine Bros. videos on their own. It's simply corporate greed.

Thing is, the Fine Bros made a stupid mistake of making the announcement before their trademark application gets approved. This means that people can still contest their claim on this trademark. Also, the word "React" is so broad that it poses a danger to a wide variety of existing contents as well as their creators that may be related to "react". This is what caused this whole drama to Youtubers.

Upset youtubers = upset subscribers...
and the domino effect goes on.

And obviously the whole trademark thing makes the fine bros look so selfish and hypocritical because they did not start the whole "react" concept. However, the Fine Bros scrambled to fix the shitstorm they started after losing so many subscribers and decided to cancel their trademark applications. Announcement here. The whole thing was just stupid and funny.

Also the whole point of React World was, if example you're a Youtuber and make "You reacting to: Cats" and you join The FineBros team.
They will automatically get the rights to "You reacting to". So in the end, all the people who join React World will give the rights to your show to them.

Really retarded.

I don't really think that they completely thought their shit through tbh, it was really really dumb of them to try to pull this shit. I always thought their videos were cringey and dumb anyways tbh
