I watch a lot of gaming videos, I do tend to purchase the games I really enjoyed watching. I think getting rid of the Twitch/YouTube streamer's ability to use gameplay footage would have a negative effect on game sales. Remember Funcoland? they used to allow you to try out games for free before you purchased them, to help make sure you were actually buying a game that fits your tastes, It's kinda like that. Not every game has free demos out there for you to try before you buy, and with games/consoles slowly getting more and more expensive I would probably stop buying new games if I didn't have somewhere to watch an example of gameplay. Watching a movie via stream is much different than watching a game via stream. Watching a movie via stream gives me the feeling of "already seen it, probably don't have to buy or rent that now". That is a loss for the movie industry. With a Video game playthrough, every experience is just different enough to keep me intrigued, and make me want to try playing it myself. (Avengers movies will always be great, but no matter how many times you watch them, they are the same movie. Every time you watch or play minecraft it's a completely new/different world/experience to watch/playthrough). So obviously Marvel (and other movie studios) should watch their product closely to make sure no one is broadcasting it for free without their permission, and Mojang/Microsoft should continue working with the MC community (because it's free advertising, and keeps their game soaring in popularity). I wish Nintendo would learn from Mojang/Microsoft (Nintendo has been known to harass creators from time to time, and has actually sued on multiple occasions, when instead they should capitalize on the popularity of their games, especially some of their old IP's which cost almost nothing to reproduce and sell digitally).

Lawyers. To quote Don Henley, "The more I think about it, Old Billy was right." Your assumption that all "bedroom bloggers" are in this for the monetization is specious at best, as the typical video blogger doesn't get enough from YouTube ad revenue to survive on Top Ramen without another source of income. I suppose that's something you've forgotten on your way to corporate sponsorship.

Recently I got copyright striked for a video that contained a sound effect of a city ambience even though my video was of a game play through with no other music in it. It got a copyright strike because some person had actually used a similar sound effect in a song which was copyrighted. My video was demonetized and still is, simply because of a sound effect in a video game that appears to have been later used for a song. The world has gotten so seemingly stupid that you can’t even play a video game without being striked for something that sounds nothing like music. You could literally go outside and record some sounds upload it on YouTube and find yourself with a copyright strike because some other guy recorded the same type of sounds and used it in a song which was then copyrighted. Music is a very dodgy industry with no stability and little credibility. Your success counts on being able to give your creations to music publishers to exploit you for a trashy business deal or for them to use your creations to sue or monetize from other peoples stuff that sounds just a little bit similar, and that’s down to an AI system to judge, makes no sense at all. It’s broke as hell.

Although video games do only get exposure on YouTube, I know that I personally have bought several games because I've seen it on YouTube. Even using your example of the untitled goose game, a comedy game, I didn't buy that because I saw the jokes and was not impressed but I did buy the Stanley parable because I saw part of what the game offered that I enjoyed. This can be extrapolated to native games, I bought observation even though I knew most of the story because of a YouTube video

Stuff like this is why I have an issue with having to obey a legal system that was invented in another country whose government I can not elect just by using a product that was invented in the said nation. How shall I put this; if the original laws were actually good, I wouldn't have an issue with the US directly influencing so much of the world. That's why I like working democracies - if something is wrong, I can name the issue and try to change it through civil protest or by joining a party/ funding a new organisation, without getting into the details of it all; what I am saying is that as a citizen of the EU which is without a doubt the messiest big federal institution on the planet without actually being a normal government or fully democratic, it is STILL better for me than the US legal system because I am NOT a US citizen. The laws which are being talked about in this video influence my daily life and yet I can not influence them in any way. In summary, if you ever wanted to know why certain Europeans of smaller nations like my own country Germany have a problem with the unequal relationship between the US and its European allies and advocate for the EU despite knowing how many reforms are necessary to make this hybrid actually work, this right here is it. The US has every right to implement whatever laws they see fit and I have every right to fundamentally disagree with the idea of being ruled over by people and systems I can not influence. It's the same reason why I condemn China just a million times smaller because, despite all my criticism, the US is of course still fundamentally democratic and a close ally of my own national and supernational representation and especially as a German ( and a self-proclaimed European), I think it is the responsibility of old friends to look out for each other and to speak out when something is going wrong. America, I know we have shared a rough history in the last decades and what I said doesn't make this any easier but we still see you as allies and more importantly, as friends. Don't you ever forget that.

Frankly, that photographer's "opinion" should be the law. The thing with ideas (intelectual property) is that once you share one with someone else, yours is not lost, it's still there. And that other person has their own personal interpretation of the same idea. You should legally own your idea, of course. But this right should stop, just like any other right, where somebody else's right to hold their own idea begins. Simple. Reinterpreting a song (even for profit) would remain always legal, people doing it for free shouldn't even be bothered with this stuff, however reusing somebody else interpretation or original song for profit should remain illegal. It's completely unacceptable that the state helps these big companies preserve their monopoly on content at the expense of the tax payers or, worse, that the state helps to legally pursue people who aren't making a profit at all.

Photographers may depend on people paying to use their work to earn a living, but the problem with the argument "you're cheating them out of money they deserve" is that people posting stock photo based memes online aren't going to start buying the right to use them if they're made aware of this. They'll just stop using them instead so the creator gains nothing - arguably they even lose a good amount of potential free publicity.

9:30 Small Content Creator hides behind the fact that they are “small” while making millions doing straight out copyright infringement. When they are sued they’re just hiding behind and leveraging the “Major companies attacking small content creator”. That’s mostly is the case, hypocrites hiding is sheep’s wool. Behind the production of a major Movie there are small and independent production companies who might earn way less then these small Youtubers do. There are individuals animating, editing, and putting their hardest into the production of a movie. These Small Content Creator/YouTubers who might make millions yearly are unethical to both Big Companies and Small production houses, and they get away hiding in their smallness. I do think the public should be further educated about this since there is so little light shone on this matter.

I think that the only reason game streamers are not worth sueing, is because in almost all cases, they end up giving the original producer a lot more sales. Going to court is only going to cost them money and lose the respect of the gaming community. Only rarely do they negatively impact sales. But 2009's resurgence of Skate 3 sales because people like Pewdiepie and Vanoss were playing them in silly ways, giving EA millions more income on an originally failed game, is 100% a better outcome than sueing streamers, losing money in court, only getting a few thousand out of them and the hatred of fans will stop the income of additional sales.

I sort of agree with the copyright laws, too many internet twits have shouted ' fair use ' and ' transformative ' .... I'm not into this particularly, but I do think that if the content someone has stolen is just being used to make money then the owner should get recompense. If you are talking about games then it is totally screwed up :)

This explanation would suggest its actually pronounced like G.I.F cause every one of those letters stands for something.

You're so right about the change in youtube Tom, at the beginning there was no monetisation and I think at that time there was more variation in content. Since Youtube allowed monetisation I think a lot of creators have looked at what is easily mass produced for easy profit and then whenever they are content claimed they rant constantly about the system. I've even seen people defend these type of people saying that if youtube didn't want them to do it why do they offer a monetisation platform... as if youtube OFFERED them to be on the platform.

It can be positive or negative as long as it is meaningful commentary, the problems with letsplays from this perspective is the amount of footage they use. If a lets player got taken to court over copyright most likely they would lose because usually there is waaaaaaaaaay more gaming footage than is necesarry to make their point, it is equivalent to just watching a movie and only talking about some parts of it (this prob won't happen because there is little to gain for the company and it would be bad press)

Negative and positive. And considering many large companies like IGN are paid for good reviews, a AAA developer might well be happy to remove all playthroughs off the internet and only leave the big company reviews that they paid for. There have already been game developers who have removed only let's plays that were negative about their games. Leave the positive ones be.
