Is it okay to activate the monetization on youtube videos with Spelunky gameplay? Could someone tell me this or maybe you, Derek Yu, could tell me this? Smiley

Thank you.

To my knowledge, you can only do that with videos you own copyright to.

As your videos contain Spelunky gameplay in it, you do not quite have copyright to it.

So no, you can't do that.

Unless, of course, you have Derek's permission.  Smiley

The big Let's Players have licenses from publishers. Because Spelunky is an open source game. I though maybe there is a public license for adverts on youtube videos. So I asked first here in the forums. Smiley

Then you need to get permission from Derek himself.

Copyright law does not work like that (I think).

I'd recommend Twitter as a decent way of contacting him. Or a PM here/on TIG.
