Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Does twitch split its ad revenue with the people streaming?
There might be special cases, but I don't believe so.
I thought not, or else Bazza wouldn't be asking for donations given how popular his streams are.
Again: Youtube is a case of a copyrighted product being reproduced for money without the consent of the copyright holder. And if you don't protect your copyright, you lose it. Expect to see more announcements in this vein going forward.
Copyright is not trademark. You lose trademarks if you do not protect them. You do not lose copyright over your work if you do not exercise it. This is a choice, not a necessity.
