Rumble is a Toronto-based video sharing website[1] founded in 2013 by Chris Pavlovski.[2]

Features[edit]

Rumble allows users to post and share videos, and enable creators to monetize and distribute video content across the Internet.[3][4]

History[edit]

Rumble was founded in 2013 by Chris Pavlovski.[5] In 2016, the company partnered with Getty Images,[6][7] and in the same year partnered with ProSiebenSat.1 Media.[8]

In February 2016, Comscore ranked Rumble as the 47th top "content video" property.[9]

On June 28, 2016, the company had a trademark registration for the word "rumble" approved by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.[10]

In July 2017, Rumble filed a lawsuit against DMG Media, publishers of the British daily newspaper the Daily Mail, for copyright infringement on a number of videos published on the platform.[11] On January 9, 2018, DMG Media had a motion to transfer the case from the Central District of California to the Southern District of New York dismissed by the presiding judge Philip S. Gutierrez.[12]

In 2018, the company announced it would invest $20 million in its video creators' network.[13][14]

On September 2020, American political commentator Dan Bongino acquired an equity stake in the company.[15][16][17]
