    What. Where had you previously announced that new rule? What do you mean that TG will handle on a case by case basis?

    SO Wes can have copyright music in his videos, but YOU might decide that I, or someone else can't?


    The way I see it is from now on we ALL can have copyright music playing in our vids!

    Please explain.

    Perhaps it will be based upon criteria, such that considers how much, and how loud, etc.

    The explanation is easy. In cases where TG ADMIN believes that it can not legally defend a particular submission due to copyright music inclusion, it will be forced to either mute the video or take it down.

    The issue is not binary and has a legal slope. TG advises not to include copyrighted music where possible.

    In all honesty, I think the music artists should feel honored that they are being played during a DK record-breaking run. Great job again, Wes. :)

    They might, the companies behind them who love nothing more than $$ wouldn't but regardless... Jace has cleared this question up so... Let's congratulate Wes on this fantastic run! Well done sir!

    OK. Just so that we all are clear on your stance on music in submissions........

    My question being……….”TG advises not to include copyrighted music where possible”.
    But it is OK if we do? Ie…Wes has done it twice in a row now. I just want to confirm that YOU don’t have a problem with Wes or anyone using what is most likely copyrighted music?

    Further, you’ll mute or take down the vid ONLY if you get a complaint from the copyright holder ? Otherwise it’s OK? Is that right?

    The goal is to keep instances of unnecessary copyrighted music to a minimum whenever possible - however the fact is that sometimes when a video game performance is recorded, external audio can be captured along with the performance. The performance is what matters in this instance and is the reason people will watch the video. It is not for adjudicators to judge or disqualify a performance based on the appearance of copyrighted music - it is a matter for TG ADMIN.

    TG ADMIN will mute or take down a video if it believes that it can not legally defend that particular video from a claim.
