Game manufacturers should have clearer licensing policies for users


 Video streaming and copyright is getting more attention.  Ian Corzine’s comments on the topic were discussed here Sept. 29.  Now Richard Hoeg and Virtual Legality weigh in after some muscle "twitches" (pun intended). 

Now Alex Hutchinson stirs a controversy by maintaining that streamers should pay game creators for licenses just like the pay for other content (the problems with music are much better known, especially after the fight in the EU recently).

Hoeg says that publishers should be offering reasonable licenses as a matter of course, rather than waiting and then issuing punitive takedowns (especially with Twitch)
