Monetising replays/videos from Wargame ALB on youtube

Postby Keinutnai » Wed 29 May 2013 01:35

Since Wargame will be released soon, I have a question:

Does Eugen Systems mind if players monetise their youtube videos about Wargame ALB?

Is it explicitly allowed?

It would be great if it was specified somewhere explicitly (and if it already is, where?)

And who owns the background music? Eugen Systems or they just got a licence to use it?

Youtube can be very picky about these kind of things.

I dont know what exactly you are reffering to but you may post replay videos on YT or other gameplay material of wargame. However I dont know if you are aloud to alter the trailers if it is that what you mean.

I'm making my own trailers from replay footage.

And I wonder if I can monetise my videos.

If you use replay/gameplay footage you are aloud to alter them as you wish.

So can I monetise my replays with wargame music or not?

Do you mean make your own videos from WALB and making money out of them using Youtube Partnership program or do you mean making videos from WALB and selling those videos under your name?

might be a good idea to see if it's focus or eugen is responsible for this sort of thing. In any case, making money of intellectual property that isn't in the public sphere without permission can be a risky buissiness. Always ask for permission.

I think you should contact Focus and ask them if you can monetise your youtube videos containing wargame footage.
Try sending a PM to Freki.

I mean that I make epic videos that people like to watch, tick the "show ads" box and earn a couple cent from the video per month.

Id like to have a link to wherever eugen officially states that they allow anyone to post ingame footage online, preferably mentioning that earning revenue from ads on youtube with wargame replays is also ok.

Thats just it though. You make money off of the advertisements ,not the footage itself.
