    Microsoft change game content usage rules

    (not sure if this should be here or offtopic but

    With halo 4 close to coming out, they've basically made it so you can't make money from their videos. Machinima etc etc. In changing the game content usage rules this means you can no longer make content resembling red vs blue and make money off of it.

    Personally it doesn't really effect me, but well yeah.

    Why would this piss anyone off? I mean, unless they're prone to flying off the handle at insignificant bullshit.

    I don't understand.
    ^ The above should be taken with two grains of salt and a fistful of "chill the F* out".

    I don't get what they are trying to do. But I think if you make a living by selling people your video game strategies, you would be in violation? Ten years ago the courts would have laughed that out, but today, with free speech being so poorly thought of...

    Hrm.

    The second part, while not an onerous request, should not be something that can be enforced with force of law (aka guns, etc.).

    How, exactly, is a basic copyright notice going to "piss people off"? You know, many platform developers have something similar to this and those that don't will have "terms of use". Just a few days ago i clarified that anyone could use designs like mine under "Free Usage" but that they couldn't copyright or otherwise protect the design (as i have original ownership). I don't see how needing to include a copyright notice like this is going to annoy people.

    Just a standard "Illusion of choice" agreement. (Meaning if you chose no you cant use it so it creates the illusion you have a choice)

    I did change the title from the pissing off people part, but doesn't seem to want to change.

    I don't see a problem with this at all. I actually kind of like and prefer it.
