Very interesting news from the guys at Pixel Eyes Productions - they’ve been trying to enable revenue sharing through ads on YouTube, and they’ve found the following:
YouTube won’t let them revenue share until they can prove rights to the video (not too surprising)
Valve won’t even respond to emails from them (slightly more surprising, but we’ve seen this before from several games companies - Microsoft being the big exception.)
Machinima.com DOES have revenue sharing enabled.
I’d be really interested to hear more on this topic from someone at the Machinima.com team - anyone?
Also, has anyone had more luck talking to Valve?
