Saw this on TPU:

ChannelPro Tosses Elric Phares Out of Motherboards.org | techPowerUp

So far there's only been one side to the story - I'm curious to hear the "bad guy's" (ChannelPro) POV. Anybody in the industry know anything? It could be a case of getting screwed over by a sellout contract but it could also be retaliation for harsh employment termination. But then again to insinuate allegations of embezzlement would be a pretty stupid thing to do on Youtube if there was no basis towards them.

Where's that video being hosted? If it's youtube, the fact that it hasn't been pulled says a lot.

I'd be interested to hear both sides of the story. It's all fine and good to get behind someone "rah rah rah" but realistically I could post a video tomorrow on my cat tips channel saying NCIX screwed me and they would have no way to defend themselves because as a business the optics are terrible if you seem to be the kind of company that airs its dirty laundry publicly.

Incidentally NCIX has not screwed me and everything is peachy keen on my end.

If Elric is right, then Channel Pro will get what's coming to them. If he's wrong, then holding the Facebook account, defaming them publicly, and directly pulling potential revenues away from their business could end very badly, so I sincerely hope he knows what he's doing.

This industry is full of blow hards and inflated egoes. Many of us know bits and pieces of the story and I won't be the one telling it.

However the reactions I have seen so far are just ridiculous and immature.

Indeed.

First comes the greed, then comes the "oh crap, I just signed away my site!", then the outburst of anger and finally the "shit, I need to take down that Youtube video so it can't be used in court against me!". Too late since I am SURE the YT records will be subpoenaed....
