NJPW Interfering With GIF Accounts

Various Twitter accounts associated with making and sharing GIFs of New Japan Pro Wrestling have been reporting that they are receiving copyright notifications from the wrestling company. Popular GIF maker Mr. Lariato mentioned that he’d received many copyright notifications, while GIF maker Italo Santana found his account (@BulletClubIta) suspended. Reactions to GIFs vary from company to company, and New Japan has no specific GIF guidelines.

This is a big blow to all that cover NJPW. For a long time, GIFs have been a way to share the little moments that make up the overall experience of a show. NJPW is doing themselves a big disservice by punishing these dedicated, passionate fans.
