[QUOTE] [URL=http://forums.majorleaguegaming.com/topic/264727-mlg-to-pick-up-king-of-fighters-xiii/]eSports controversy, in my KoF? It's more likely than you think![/URL] well, at least to the modest extent that some KoF videos are being taken down in Major League Gaming's name, but they're denying involvement, so that apparently it's a case of Youtube overreacting. Either way, interesting times, when you're used to KoF being under the radar. [/QUOTE] I think people really twist the idea of copyrights way too much, and since I actually [URL=http://www.copyright.gov/]understand it fairly well[/URL], let me clear things up on how things should take place. MLG can own the rights to display KOF all they want, but copyright law never entitles an external company to the exclusive rights to distribute, perform, display, reproduce, or make derivative works thereof. MLG is not authorized to make a call on copyright infringement over other peoples' streams (and this is why people are panicking); they are only authorized copyright over their own streams/videos. The only one, by copyright law, who has the actual ability to injunction somebody over videos is--take a wild guess! Therefore, if videos get taken down, it really is a mistake of Youtube's paranoia, but ultimately, it's not MLG's say, unless they lie and claim a video belongs to them. In light of such, KOFXIII having higher pots may well entice higher level people to play to the bestest of their ability just to get a taste of that green, which would lead to some really high quality (but expensive to watch) matches, but it would also give SNKP some moneys, and SNKP in turn may think "Oh crap, people love KOF, even if it's just for the higher pot, we should make a new one!" In a business sense, it could be one of the smarter things SNKP does, and that would be a win-win situation if it keeps them from relying too much upon their Pachinko and mobile dating game nonsense.
