    Exclamation Monetizing from Youtube videos containing Paradox Interactive material!

    Hello!

    We have understood that many of you are having videos containing material from our games removed from Youtube because you need written consent from us.

    Our legal department composed a letter which hopefully will be enough for Youtube, so feel free to use it (see attachment in this post).

    Please let us know if Youtube accepts it, or if we need to do something else.

    Best Regards
    Björn

    I just want to say kudos to Paradox for going out of it's way to help those who want to do this. It is not every company that will take a step like this!

    If enforcing the rules to-the-letter results in stupid situations, it means you have stupid rules... and you SHOULD enforce them to-the-letter, otherwise they'll never get changed.

    While it is nice, they have much to gain from this as well, considering what an effective source for advertising these let's play videos can be.
    I think more people who interact with me should know about the neuropsychological disorder, Asperger's Syndrome; that I am diagnosed with, in order to at least to some degree understand the background to my by some people perceived as strange personality.

    This kind of thing is what has kept me a loyal Paradox customer for years. Well, this and great games, but great games alone are not enough to enter the group of awesome companies!

    Wow, kudos to Paradox for being such nice guys.

    I think this is a great choice because a youtube let's play brought me to buy the games in the first place.

    Good news for my planned EU4 LP

  13. #13
    Clicked on this genuinely expecting to see a "don't make money off our content" post. It's great to see a game development studio still in touch with it's fans and smart enough to realise that a good LP will lead to increased revenue too. All my money has been well spent with Paradox, continue to make time sink games guys and you can continue to take my money!

    Thanks so much, Paradox! You guys are awesome.

    You have a point, However isnt this a healthy relationship? Where the Consumer and company treat eachother with mutual respect and both gain from it?

    Hello Bjorn,

    Here is an email reply I received today from an unnamed support person at YT after providing them the aforementioned PDF. Apparently the PDF does not mention the audio content, and therefore disqualifies the video (at least for now) I have asked them not only their name but also what video they are referring to. All they have said so far is it is a paradox game and that the agreement PDF was provided.

    Would a modified agreement mentioning audio be possible?

    Thanks in advance

    -Shen

    Jeez...

    We'll update the letter.
    You can always check out my reborn twitter attempt: @BjornB_pdx - it kind of sucks though. But sometimes there is interesting/useful info there
