YouTube on YouTube Game Takedowns

YouTube has responded to the rash of takedowns of game-related videos sending emails to some of the impacted users. Kotaku has the letter, which unapologetically explains the content matches at issue, noting many of these are music-related, saying: "Be aware of music. Many games allow you to turn off background music, while leaving sound effects enabled. And if you're looking for music you can freely use (and monetize!), check out our Audio Library." There have been numerous reports of erroneous takedowns during this process, but nothing in the letter addresses these.

If you want to monetize it, get permission. It's pretty simple. No one's saying you can't engage in Fair Use otherwise.

Get who's permission? The game companies license music for their game. They also allow you to film their game and post videos on youtube. But the music creators are saying that their music that came along with a game aren't licensed. BS. If I made a movie using licensed music, then I allow you to take clips from my movie, there is nothing the original music licensee can/would do about it.
