The saga of Sony and Naughty Dog's "Last of Us Part II" DMCA takedown and copyright claim extravaganza concludes (?) as we once again look into the case of YouTuber HeelvsBabyface (and compatriot JustSomeGuy), who has had the copyright claims placed against him lifted, not even two days after Sony rejected his dispute and looked like they were going to take the process all the way to the end of the line.

But is this a victory for the content creators...or something else?

Sometimes the other side doesn't do what you expect...in Virtual Legality.
