So, I heard this rumor that SEGA does not allow 'tubers etc to make a profit from their vids. Will this be an issue?

Thanks, I know :D

You need to do a search for SEGA on that page, it isn't in the initial thread iirc.

Here's some of what I think it's about. Perhaps it is worth investigating before SEGA and the CoH-community starts tapdancing on each others toes.

We have been contacted by our Youtube parter who told us only about Nintendo. At this point I'll contact SEGA and let you guys now :)

My CoH 2 videos have lately fallen into the "Under Review" pit where they can't have any ads on them and they never get reviewed - if SEGA would release some sort of statement about this, that would help solve things. I don't really give a shit but it might annoy some people who want to make CoH 2 videos. On the plus side I haven't gotten hit with any takedown notices or whatever so that's good.

You can monetize your COH2 VODs, it's under fair use.

A lot of my CoH 2 videos get their monetization disabled.

Do you know why, exactly?

We never got a single issue monetizing our videos, both mine and those of COH2.ORG :o

No, it's random. YouTube sometimes decides that you need to provide proof of monetization rights. Lots of game companies provide that by posting it on a website or something but SEGA and Relic don't. Lynx told me to PM him about it a while ago but then Lynx got fired before he responded.

Marcus, it seems to be entirely random, so maybe you and CoH2.org are lucky. Out of my 46 CoH 2 videos, 6 can't be monetized until I provide some sort of proof, which is a much higher percentage than the videos I upload about other games, but that might just be random. I have no idea how the heck it works - it must be automatic or something because I can upload 2 CoH 2 videos at once and one will be fine and the other won't let me monetize it.

Do you have a Youtube partnership? Or any other sort of partnership with another network?

Dude probably gets like 800 PMs already. Plus Noun ignores me anyways. Once he had a question for me on Steam, and either I friended him on Steam to answer it or he told me to friend him, then he later rejected my friend request, so I posted here or something and said "what" or whatever, and he was like "sorry I get like 800 friend requests, friend me again" and I did and then I think e rejected it again.
