Yo, if you are one of those people who make a living off making Let’s Play videos on YouTube, that’s good, but keep in mind: You are making your living by filming yourself playing video games.
I’m pretty certain this whole genre will begin to become oversaturated as heck given how easy it is to do. If you are 100% certain this is what you want to do, you better have a backup plan if things go awry because they probably will in a few years time.
Not to mention that you are making money off someone else’s intellectual property. If a company decides they want that money for themselves, who are you to tell them off?
The people making money for themselves don’t deserve a cent, unless the entire video consists only of content they own in full, or if they’re getting sponsored. The people who make Let’s Plays to raise awareness and advertise freely for a company they like ought to be thrilled that they are directly benefiting the company once Content ID notices roll in. Because isn’t that the whole point of being a fan?
