The Fine Brothers trademarked "reaction", "_____ reacts to", and various other series they have done, and the Internet interprets it as them trademarking reaction videos in general which is too big of a genre for one entity to own. The public isn't that off though, as the Fine Brothers have been known to take down various reaction videos, like a Ellen DeGeneres kids react to typewriters clip. Thus, they have been steadily losing subscribers. Last week they had ~14 million, now they have lost 100k subscribers and are at ~13.9 million.

 

The video announcing their trademark, portraying it as something for the community or something

 

Satirical take on this

From my POV they did not need to take such actions. They already make more than enough money with tons of reacting videos, plus side series or whatever else they put up.
I low key want them to get their accounts deleted now, or hacked... or lose all subs, or all of the above

I'm loving all the videos mocking on them. They're losing so many subscribers, it's crazy. I really want to see their next update on this :lol:

 

Oh, and just a correction. Their peak was at 14.08 mil subscribers, not that close to 15 mil :p

I actually find some of their videos so dumb. Mostly because of the people in them. This is no surprise for me

I understand why they might want to do something but jfc....

 

they went after Jimmy Kimmel and the Ellen show before...

 

Their own friend Philip DeFranco made a video about them saying they did something stupid.

 

Making a response video was probably not a great idea because they don't do well in front of the camera lol.

 

Eek. I do respect them though they created really cool awesome videos, hopefully they can climb out of their hole they have dug.

The only thing I paid attention to was the Mega64 clip and it was hilarious.

That's the best part xD However, doesn't make much sense without some boring context.

The context is right at the beginning of their video.

I'm still sitting here wondering how they even got that to trademark.
I thought they were just filing it , but to actually have it is ridiculous. 

On a side note I saw someone in the comments want to trademark the word "porn".

They did it to themselves... trying to trademark such a common word and hating on other people and media.

 

Here's a link to watch their subscriber count drop.

so how does the trademark work? by simply using the word "react"? because youtubers should just change their titles to "respond" or something similar.

Youtubers could and some people already have changed their titles to mock the Fine Bros, but why should they? The Fine Bros. aren't the creators of the word and reaction videos and similar things that media do have been around even before the internet was around.
