Oddworld's Position On YouTube's New Content ID System
Posted on December 12, 2013 in News by Oddworld Staff
This week, YouTube went live with their revised Content ID system which allowed copyright holders to flag YouTube videos, preventing the content creator from earning any money from YouTube’s ad revenue services.
We at Oddworld Inhabitants, Inc. would like to reassure YouTubers that we continue to give our explicit permission to anyone on the service to broadcast using Oddworld games, including Abe’s Oddysee, Abe’s Exoddus, Munch’s Oddysee, Stranger’s Wrath, and the upcoming New ‘n’ Tasty (and any updated, HD versions).
This includes Let’s Plays, commercial trailers, and screen shots.
The issue is explained in detail in the video above.
In fact, nothing makes us happier than to see you guys enjoying our games, and it’s something we encourage wholeheartedly. So as we’ll continue to push our content through our own YouTube channel, we have no plans to issue copyright claims to others.
If you are on the end of one of these new ContentID copyright flags as a result of showing Oddworld game footage, please contact us.
