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.

Agreed on all accounts. People should fuck off with such ridiculous behaviour.

I'm glad you guys are fighting back. I believe I speak for everyone in the community that no one wants to see Gamersyde disappear and we will do our best to fight for it.

I don't watch much Youtube content, specially of something that is on Gamersyde, in fact I delete the Youtube version of a trailer as soon as the Gamersyde version is posted, but if I see something that's from Gamersyde on Youtube I will warn you guys.

One of my favorite quotes is: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." by Edmund Burke.

Will gladly help!!!!
Maybe put a little watermark in the video so people can easily spot
that the content belongs to GSyde.

I can understand you, I hate when people steal others work. Youtubers know that feeling too...
BTW off-screen content could be tricky if the event don't allow recording

i'm surprised you've only just taken this stance tbh. i'd have starting issuing copyright strikes the first time it happened.

I really like allgamesbeta.com, but they have been stealing from you and uploading to Megaupload for ages. Lately they added "courtesy of Gamersyde", but I don't know if they've talked to you.

One question, someone from China use your videos and upload them to the local videoplatforms like Youku or Tudou which you may even not heared about. What would you do then?

As for myself also from China, I found this site much earlier than those video-host and keep watching the videos myself.

As you may know, you guys have a lot of fans over the world, and youtubers are just part of the whole group

If those youtubers are fans they have to realize they are killing us by stealing content, even when crediting us. Sooner or later we'll have to shut down the site if we can't make enough money to keep it running. The reason we're bringing it up now is that this e3 is not looking good for us. Sure, it's not just because of the stolen content, but it's making things way worse.

Glad to see GSY decide to take actions, I was worried when I first read J-F Mammet's reply, I thought you won't do anything more than ask those guys to credit you. Copyrights strike was just what I'd expected.

i think maybe it's time to say enough is enough if it's such a financial burden?

It's not a financial burden when Youtubers don't make it worse (and the ad company supposed to take care of the campaigns does their job...).

I love gamersyde because I can download the videos in high quality and play them off of my large screen off a HDD...

I hate websites take advantage of this because I would hate to lose this feature.

I hope that this can be curved for you, if not I would understand if you had to lock up the videos.

Cheers and keep up the awesome work.
