James Swire (born: May 30, 1997YouTuber who mainly does comedy and gaming moments videos. He often streams on Twitch and sometimes makes highlight videos.), better known online as Jameskii, is a Danish
Jameskii has a wide range of YouTube videos and series on his channel: one of the earliest and most known series is called "VRChat in a nutshell" where he experiences VRChat and meets people with different types of personalities and characters from other games. He usually plays with a lot of his friends. He has also played other games, such as Roblox, Fortnite, CS:GO and Apex Legends for funny moment videos. In 2018, he was primarily making solo videos due his crazy neighbor situation.
Before August 22, 2018, Jameskii's real appearance was unknown. However, that day, he posted a selfie on Twitter, and a week later, on 1 September, 2018, he uploaded an official face reveal video on YouTube.
The channel in trouble
On 19 December, 2018, James received his first copyright strike because one of his Roblox videos contained about 30 seconds of a song made by Tekashi 6ix9ine.
On 4 January, 2019, Jameskii made a video about five copyright claims he received by CollabDRM on a Tik Tok video which contains a video clip of Rebecca Zamolo. However, she wasn't aware of the situation and CollabDRM had also attempted to sue him for defamation and making false claims that he haven't replied to them. They also tried to offer him "licenses" ($300/each license) to the clips as long as he would delete his statements and remain silent. Anyhow, the situation didn't end up getting resolved and as a result, Jameskii had to remove his video to not get a strike.
On 1 February, 2019, he received another copyright strike because of a sound effect on a VRChat video, but it has been withdrawn.
Jameskii got several copyright claims without any claims by other companies, which seriously affected James' mental health. He talked about having a "painful surgery because of existing health condition escalated by stress caused by Collab situation". Fortunately, there weren't any signs of cancer or other diseases and he is currently recovering from it.
