Ethan Klein took to Twitter to announce the news, “We won the lawsuit. Video coming soon. Huge victory for fair use on YouTube.” In her summary of the case, Forrest said, “The key evidence in the record consists of the Klein and Hoss videos themselves,” adding, “Any review of the Klein video leaves no doubt that it constitutes critical commentary of the Hoss video; there is also no doubt that the Klein video is decidedly not a market substitute for the Hoss video. For these and the other reasons set forth below, defendants’ use of clips from the Hoss video constitutes fair use as a matter of law.”

Matt Hoss Vs. H3H3
Hoss sued Ethan and Hila Klein after the two uploaded a video of critiquing one of Hoss’ “Bold Man” persona videos on their YouTube channel, H3H3. The “Bold Man” a fictional character who claims to be confident and funny, with the ability to pick up women.
The couple’s reaction video was for Hoss’ “Bold Guy vs Parkour Girl,” in which he goes on a parkour-heavy cat and mouse chase with a girl he sees on the street. Hoss sued H3H3 believing that they committed copyright infringement, breaking the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, and defamed him. In the summary issued by the judge, Forrest explained that the Kleins did not break copyright laws, “Because the Klein video does not ‘offer a substitute for the original,’ it does not (and indeed, cannot) ‘usurp a market that properly belongs to the copyright-holder.’”
According to sources, YouTube star Philip DeFranco started a GoFundMe page that raised over $150,000 for the Klein’s legal fees. During an interview, Ethan said, “They didn’t give us money because they like us, they did it because they want to protect that principle — to show them we can’t be bullied.”
H3H3 posted a video about the case, thanking fans for being at their side, and re-posted the previously taken down reaction video to Hoss’ “Bold Guy vs Parkour Girl.”
