Rockstar outlines user upload policy on GTAV launch day
Parent company Take-Two says it is "happy for fans" to upload gameplay footage, but says videos with spoilers and in-game entertainment will be flagged for removal.
Rockstar Games parent company Take-Two Interactive has laid out its policy concerning copyright material as Grand Theft Auto V launches today.
In a post on the Rockstar Games Support page, the company said Take-Two Interactive is "happy for fans" to upload gameplay footage, but outlined a few guidelines that gamers should adhere to unless they want to receive a takedown notice.
The first relates to spoilers. Videos showing the end of the game, pure cutscenes, or any other "big reveal" from the story will be flagged for removal. Take-Two said it is OK to show cutscenes as part of a larger playthrough, but isolated cinematics will be removed.
In addition, videos featuring in-game entertainment like TV shows or other performances will be removed. "We prefer fans to experience these in the context of the game's world," Take-Two said.
Overall, Take-Two said it has the right to remove any content it finds "objectionable" on a case-by-case basis and also to change its policy whenever it wishes. Questions about this policy can be directed at Take-Two via firstname.lastname@example.org.
