Exclamation Copyright uses for comentary videos on Amnesia The Dark Descent and Penumbra:Overture

Hey everyone,


I'm a new youtuber who has made comentary videos on the games "Amnesia : The Dark Descent" and "Penumbra : Overture". I want to monetize my videos but I need the proof that Frictional Games allows people to make commentary videos on their games. So, could you please send me the link where I can find that proof? I searched for hours and didn't find anything. So I need your help guys.
If you could tell me about Frictional Games' copyrights, it would help me a lot.
Have a good day ! Big Grin


With all due respect,

Kazakov.

This has been discussed numerous times.

YES, you are allowed to monetize your videos on Youtube.
NO, you may not claim the game as your own or sell the game.

Can you send me the link proving it? I trust you, it's just that I don't think that your comment will convince youtube. Because when we monetize the video, they make a huge inspection, searching for any copyright infringement, you know. So if I get the link wrote by Frictional Games saying that I can do it, that will be a proof that will surely convince Youtube.


Thanks,

RE: ajshlasd

Your proof lies in all the Youtube channels involved in Amnesia Let's
Plays, such as PewDiePie, ChaoticMonki, CinnamonToastKen, Morfar, and
many many others.

I will look for the post, I'm sure Jens has answered it before.

I did search post after post but none had a Frictional Games member post
in it. Others have said they have been told by PM. If you would like to
PM, you may do so. But remember how many channels have Amnesia videos,
and no one has ever claimed copyright. You're fine, believe me.

I believe they not only allow monetization, they encourage it, since the games themselves are made popular by word of mouth. Have you ever seen a commercial on TV for Amnesia? No, because it doesn't need one

RE: Copyright uses for comentary video

The proof is hidden within the forums reserved for moderators and admins. It is not publicly available, but we can guarantee you that FrictionalGames will not come after you, unless perhaps you start claiming their work as your own.
