Ethan and Hila are being sued for a video they created about youtuber MattHossZone.  In my and many others' opinion this is an attempt to step on freedom of speech via a broken copyright system and most people's confusion over Fair Use.

The class acts that Ethan and Hila are, they did not ask for viewers to support their defense fund with money, but this situation is bigger than them.  If they are bullied and drained of funds because of this ridiculous lawsuit and/or they lose this case it could set a terrible precedent for other creators.  Now it's H3H3 productions, but tomorrow it's you and your favorite creators being scared into keeping their mouths shut.

They have estimated that defending this to the end could cost them around $100,000(USD), even if they win.  Let's start out with a small goal as any little bit helps.  I'll get the ball rolling with a $5,000(USD) donation.

Please join me in donating to H3H3's defense fund and taking a stand together as a community.  If you don't have the cash, please just get the word out about this.

Thank you,
Philip DeFranco

One of the final updates from me. Thank you to everyone who helped raise awareness and the $166,600 for the Help H3H3 Fund. I started this with the hope to help raise just a fraction of what you guys donated. You're amazing.

As of today I am handing over full access to the funds to Ethan of H3H3 Productions and his lawyers, Ryan Morrison, and Michael Lee. If you haven't heard about how the money will be used by Ethan and now FUPA I recommend you watch the video I've attached. Its very exciting and none of it would have been possible without you guys.

All the best,

Philip DeFranco

Update #1: Wow you guys are amazing. I mean all of you. All the people sharing this page and every single donation whether it be for $5 or $4000.

You guys killed the $15k goal and I'll be raising it in $5k increments so we have these reachable steps on the way to getting $$$ to help Ethan and Hila against this ridiculousness.

Also for those asking, Ethan and Hila did not start this GoFundMe page, but I have spoken with Ethan since it launched and hes been blown away by your support.

My next step personally is to hand over control of this campaign to Ethan and Hila in the next few day(s).

-Philip DeFranco

Funny thing is. This case is going to have a lot of public interest. Matt Hoss will more than likely destroy the little pathetic channel he has built from all the hate he will garner and h3h3 productions will skyrocket on YouTube.

Never seen anything like this. The internet is really banding together to serve justice to injustice. You can't tell me that Ethan and Hila haven't shed a tear over this. This is a beautiful moment in the history of the internet.

Best of luck with the case Ethan. One of my videos was taken down because I said the Veggie Tales game was bad. After a dispute, I was told to "go easy on the Veggie Tales boys" leading me to believe I infringed upon no one, but received a channel strike only because I shat on the game. This shouldn't be allowed. Papa bless.

#HelpH3H3 Spread the word! This isn't about h3h3 alone, it's about fair use for the entire Youtube community vs some douche. If bad guys win this, we can kiss a lot of our favorite channels goodbye.

Please counter sue them (Matt How's AND the attorney) for slander, falsifying court documents, perjury... And the big one... Emotional and financial hardships! You are going to win your case, hands down. These guys need to know that they can not bully creators! Teach them a lesson, and use the money you win toward charity and/or better recording equipment, so you can make more videos using the fair use law! Best of luck guys! You've got this!
