About sharing videos of The Plan

Hi folks!

We have recently received mails from people who have done a Let’s Play of our game, The Plan, and received a copyright infringement claim on their video. Because of this, we would like to clarify the following:

We do allow Let’s Plays of our games, but we are not the copyright holders of the music used ingame. This means:

  • Users who post videos of the game and make ad revenue, do not share the authorization we obtained for use of this music.
  • If the video is without commentary or review, it is also concidered to be a ‘public performance’, which violates the copyright for the music’s owner.
  • We are not at liberty to ‘share’ our permission with people doing a Let’s Play video, which means we can not allow monetized Let’s Plays of the game.
  • Reviews of the game are however protected under the 1st Amendment rights, which covers free speech.

It is also worth noting that people have received claims from AdShare MG, which have no affiliation with Camerata. If you have made a review of The Plan and received a claim from AdShare MG, it should be safe to dispute this claim, and it should typically drop within 24 hours.

    …thinking you are Norwegians.
    How come American laws apply instead of Norwegian ones?

      Hey, and sorry about the late reply!

      While I would have to consult with someone in the legal business to confirm this, I do believe it’s due to the fact that Youtube is a US based company.

    I’m trying to download The Plan but the download stops around 70MB. Is it a problem of mine or from the website? Thanks for the attention.

      It seems to work on this end. What version are you trying to download?

    What is about sharing Let’s plays about Among the sleep?
    In this blog post you talk about “the Plan”. But you write :”We do allow Let’s Plays of our games, but we are not the copyright holders of the music used ingame.”

    I comment the playing in the videos, upped them on youtube. And now i want to move my youtube account to the next level with monetize. Many publisher allowed that on youtube.

    So the question is, you too? And what is with the music. Is it ok, cause i comment the movies, or what i must do now, if i want to make let’s plays with among the sleep or the plan?

    best regards

      Sorry about the confusion, I might have worded it badly. It is only the music in The Plan we are not the copyright holders of.

      We do allow monetizing videos of Among the Sleep, and you should face no problems using the music from AtS 🙂 As for The Plan we can not, as mentioned in the original blog post, allow monetized Let’s Plays.

      Hope that helps, and let us know if you have any other questions!

      Best regards,
