It is sadly nothing new since our homemade content has been stolen by Youtubers and others for a long while now but enough is enough. Whether these guys crop our videos and claim them as theirs or they are kind enough to credit us makes no difference for us as it basically means we're losing visitors and money to keep the website alive. The About page and the download page are clear though, the content we produce (direct feed or off-screen videos) is ours and it is not free of use by any means. As a result, anyone uploading our content to their benefit without our direct authorisation will automatically get a copyrights strike from now on. The survival of Gamersyde is at stake here so we won't let people make money on our backs without fighting back. We therefore ask our community to remain vigilant and to let us know the minute they see some of our content on Youtube or other hosting services. We also ask those who upload our content not to take our warning lightly, even if you have the best intentions. Thanks in advance.

I'm already not playing Battlefield because I'm not crazy with what DICE is doing with it. They've got a lot of work to do. (1 Hour ago)
EA is far from out of the woods, but I don't think this is the steep downhill incline you imagine for the industry. I'm not buying the doom and gloom. (1 Hour ago)
If they can develop revenue streams that don't negatively impact the user experience.. most will try. (1 Hour ago)
And while publishers may want to pursue service models, there are relatively good ways of handling that. Add to this the fact that most developers don't really want to ruin their games. (1 Hour ago)
EA is already dropping the ball all over the place. But people are reacting to it, more than ever. (1 Hour ago)
wait until EA slaps that shite into Battlefield to an absurd degree. You'll be on here crying your lamps out about it. (2 Hours ago)
