    Default Illegal to use YouTube upload feature in RIFT?

    S.978 states it will be illegal to stream or upload any copyrighted game content. RIFT includes the ability to do this from inside the game. Is this going to be against the law?

    Not even close to being illegal. I believe said law (or whatever it's called) is for transferring pirated games and such, not in-game footage of stuff.

    Nothing to do with pirated games - that's S.968. S.978 makes it illegal to post screenshots or videos of a computer game on the Internet.

    Not sure why this was moved to Off Topic - this directly impacts a function of the RIFT client!

    Where does it say in this description that it is illegal to post screenshots?

    This is nothing we need to worry about, Trion gives us permission to release this type of content unless we are under a Non Disclosure Order, you have nothing to worry about, its more aimed at people leaking screenshots and posting infringing videos.

    Makes unauthorized web streaming of copyrighted content - WE ARE AUTHORIZED PEOPLE GEEZ

    Yup screw the economy. Screw equal Rights. Screw the fact that we are involved in 3 wars. Screw the fact that our infastructure is falling apart. Screw the fact that we may default on our national debt. Lets waste time and energy on this useless crap. And Congress wonders why most Americans think our government is not effective.....

    If Trion gives you the tools to post pictures and video online, then that is your permission to do so. You are using the ingame tools provided by Trion to make the pics and video available.

    Trion does give you the tools to post pics on twitter, and video on YouTube. You can even Facebook your whatevers ingame, from my memory. Not like my friends and co-workers would want to know, but its there.
