The idea that a person would have some sort of legal case against a person that uploaded their game to You Tube is absurd.

 

The only credible argument for requiring permission I have seen is from Maxroelofs. And to be clear he is not saying that there should be any MT rule against it, rather that the person would not upload as a respectful gesture to an opponent who had objected.

 

Personally I have always* asked permission of any player I have uploaded games from, though several opponents, such as Hielco and MTinsley, made clear that i needn't have asked them. But I always felt it was a matter of courtesy rather than something there should be rules about.

 

*If I am playing against someone that is banned from the site, or that is engaging in abusive chat,stalling or deliberate disconnects, then I would put the whole game up online (if I could be bothered, and if the game was not awful, which it often would be ) without any thought to their 'secret setup' or feelings about such things, and I would be very amazed if the MT intervened after such a player objected.

Your last point is a pretty interesting argument here which I hadn't thought about, but I fully agree with it.

It is not absurd–perhaps unlikely, but the people at YouTube who are responsible for what content is allowed and not, can be swayed to make the decision to remove or block certain uploads. That specific authority of YouTube's, to specifically block or remove, has its basis in the legal world; thus, you see, it is not absurd.

But this is now going off the primary focus and debate...the debate is not whether or not the MT can remove YouTube uploads...but rather:

 

What is going to become the established protocol concerning forum members uploading game videos to YouTube?

 

If it becomes established by the MT that players must acquire permission before uploading a Stratego match, then that is clear–MT will need to enforce that policy accordingly. If no permission becomes the policy, then MT has nothing to worry about regarding such uploads.

No --not MT work Napo 2 unless the MT is contacted by a player it seems. I feel if a match is uploaded and a player had requested it not be. If The person had been contacted by that player to please take it down and refused then maybe a MT mechanism would help prod the player to do it. If some player started a collection of videos of Plat. players flag/bomb placement some may feel this MT intervention was a good thing--maybe. Take this thought a step further what if a player is upset with another and starts loading videos of the match's one after another after another showing exclusive bad moves. One would hope that there was some recourse.
