The pair’s management have confirmed that the company will rescind all “React” trademarks and applications, discontinue the React World program and release all past Content ID claims.
Ryan Morrison, who offered his services as an attorney to help fight the plans, reacted to the news on Reddit and Twitter.
He wrote: “Is what they did initially right? No, of course not. But I don’t offer my services to destroy their company or see endless employees laid off.”
Morrison then encouraged the public not to attack the channel, acknowledging that there will still be viewers looking to enjoy the Fine Bros’ content. He added that the Fine Bros had sent him evidence that the trademark applications were dropped.
