Changes to Video Monetization Policy

First post First post

After concerns were raised by members of the community relating to clarity of our policies surrounding giveaways and raffles of ingame items hosted by Twitch streamers, we have amended the Video Monetization Policy to include information regarding what is and is not acceptable in terms of giveaways and raffles used to boost the profile of Twitch channels.

As such, this policy has been renamed the "Monetization of Videos and Streaming Policy" given that it now includes information relating to promotion of twitch channels.

Given that this policy includes changes that will affect some of our streamers and the giveaways that they run, we would like to give seven days of notice regarding this policy change, which will come into effect at 23:59:59 on Wednesday, July 1st 2015.

If you would like to discuss this change in policy, you can do so in this forum thread.

Get ready for massive amounts of sodium.

Tedium and difficulty are not the same thing, if you don't realize this then STFU about game design.

Seems fairly clear, wonder how many people are reading this and looking for the loopholes saying 'yeah but . . . '

Probably one of the top-3 clearest rulings I've ever seen from CCP. Kudos on that. At least we shouldn't expect months of "but can I use Video FX to with a reverse looping macro to run my 37 accounts?"

In short -

No sub-only giveaways - for EVE items / isk

And if you are using a loyalty point system, you can not use it for EVE Online related giveaways...


Sounds right to me

Quote:
If in-game assets are used in giveaways to promote popularity of a stream or video, there must be full parity between users who are viewing the content for free and those who are subscribed, and all viewers of content must have the same access to giveaways and the same chance to win prizes regardless of any subscription fees paid.

The 1RONBANK Twitch Stream seems to follow this exactly, (as far as I can tell, anyway) - except for one thing. (Maybe?)

Subscribers to their stream can 'Win'*** more than once per day, but non-subscribers, only once.

I take it from this, that that would have to change - for 'full parity' and 'the same chance to win prizes regardless of any subscription fees paid'...?


*** 'Win' doesn't guarantee actually winning anything, (in standard draws).

Correct. Some things will need to change to be compliant with CCP new policies.

It is great news to get a defined policy to follow and very much welcomed by vloggers and streamers.

Thumbs Up CCP!

This is totally unfair! This will ruin my whole streaming revenue plan!

/me goes off to read the policy now, and start a twitch account

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

Oh it won't matter to the "lawyers" how it's worded in the long run.

This is good for nipping confusion in the bud before someone plays rule games.
