    Christmas 2017

    Yet you did. Gosh, the irony. Anyway, I'll spend most of my days with my relatives and friends eating lots and lots of tasty dishes. We stopped gifting presents around 2014 since we all collectively agreed that buying something that someone doesn't necessarily want or need in a time where everyone is just procrastinating to the last day to get a christmas gift is overly stressful and needlessly exhausting. I only gift my closest friend because he is not part of the family and I specifically want to gift him something. We all just want to spend time together and share stories and laughs, that's our, and also my, most important gift.

  3. Hm, I can neither confirm nor deny what DSP said or didn't say. The point you bring up seems valid to me though, given that it's somewhat contradictory what he may have said. My advice to you would be to watch closely what he says in the upcoming future regarding not-so-well-known games and ad revenue. Here's to hoping he answers your question in this topic directly.

    Fair Use

    I seemed to have overlooked that part, sorry. The circumstances can make this part difficult though. I heard that some of the detractors use third party content for editing which would very likely increase the probability of content I.D. claims. Such claims are completely out of hand from the original creator. All control of display and revenue of the ads that appear on such a videos would go over to these third parties and the uploader wouldn't see any cent of it. So you need to differ between those who don't use transformative work to edit their videos, don't use third party content and still activated ad revenue on content originally from DSP (which is at this point just copy&pasting his content) and those who edited their videos heavily, resulting in a different product and got claimed because of third party content I.D., losing all control over ad revenue display and gain. Again case-by-case basis. Latter are, most likely, in the right when claiming fair use, even though they have ads enabled, because it may not even be the uploader gaining the ad revenue, but a third party. The former on the other hand, I agree. No claim of fair use would hold up if you just copy&paste the content, don't edit in any way or just very slightly to the point where you cannot consider it transformative. And claiming first party ad revenue from such a video would only violate the four factors of fair use even further. Considering that fee you mention, I don't see DSP making any off-hand agreements with detractor channels to pay a sum of money for them to keep his content on their channels. If anything, DSP would have to go after them personally, sueing them to set a clear precendent.
  5. I don't like the practice either but I can see where he's coming from. As much as I like seeing DSP playing obscure or niche games, he has to have something else in the back to still keep him supported. I think that's the reality most of the fans will now have to face, especially in a situation like this. Also, I believe DSP mentioned how he wanted to focus on Twitch being his major income, even overcoming Youtube one day. So I don't think the ad revenue of Youtube is the problem here. He wants to primarily generate attention on Twitch and get cheers, tips and subs. Hence, he will focus on what generates very high attendance on his streams and brings out people to support him. Youtube is only secondary in this.

    Fair Use

    A paraphrase /ˈpærəfreɪz/ is a restatement of the meaning of a text or passage using other words. Source If you check the wikipedia page for Fair Use you can find examples of products sold for profit and still deemed fair use by court of law (see U.S. fair use factors, "1. Purpose and character of the use", third paragraph) Quote: [...] The Campbell court held that hip-hop group 2 Live Crew's parody of the song "Oh, Pretty Woman" was fair use, even though the parody was sold for profit. Thus, having a commercial purpose does not preclude a use from being found fair, even though it makes it less likely. Unquote. So you can say is that selling your presumed product of fair use for profit is making it harder to be considered fair use but not entirely exclude the possiblity. The evidence here is completely anecdotal and the final judgement will probably be decided on a case-by-case basis. There is no such thing as certainty in a court of law because every case and its circumstances are different. Opposing judgements can be ruled out even if situation and case were virtually congruent. All you should go by are the four fair use factors. Your product being very transformative and possibly non-profit can help with ruling in favor of fair use.
  8. I follow the H3 Podcast and seen him on there, he seems like a really awesome guy and a very entertaining streamer. It's sad if he actually did this, but I can respect anyone more if they admit to their mistakes. Dr. Disrespect (and the person behind it) could've left everybody in the dark about it and I think it's a very big gamble for him to come forward like this. I hope he can move on positively from this point on and everything works out for him in the end.

  10. Thanks for the offer but I'll rather focus on DSP's twitch/youtube and this forum. And I derailed this thread too long for now so let's get back to the topic.
  11. And I guess I was expecting you to substantiate your argument. Guess I expected too much. I don't check twitter feeds because I stay away from twitter in general.
  12. Well, add some reference material for those who have no clue what the hell you are talking about.
  13. Nier:Automata, hands down. I don't want to make a list so here are other very worthy contenders I personally played: Hellblade - Senua's Sacrifice RUINER ECHO Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony Resident Evil 7 The Long Dark (EA before 2017 - full release in August)
