Aren't they already? BIS isn't thinking about Machinima, they are thinking of their own coffers. Which they should ofcourse, only that all the bloody let's plays out there are free advertising for all those games. BIS could just look at it as paying for advertising, and they wouldn't have to spend a dime on it. Further, the more and broader the audience, the more potential for customers... This is advertising guys! You're just making a regime that eventually everybody will leave out because they can't bother the bureaucracy.
PS! I don't do let's play, I don't plan to do let's play - I just enjoy them - and buy the games!
PS2! Ever heard of Minecraft. Like that would happen if it wasn't for youtube????

it's no free advertising, they make a cash on our content, not just theirs creativity
consider it like mixing up music, mixing/rehashing movie content, all that if generates profit usually needs license/IP owner approval

I first thought that monetization (Im not YT partner) was something like 1 cent per view (lol), but then I hear that somebody have to click the Add in the video, and nobody does that, and you cant tell your friends to do that neither, and since I only have like 180 subscribers, it doesnt even worth for me anyway, it was only to support a little bit our server :s
again @carlgustava you don't understood the license term nor the subject ...
media subjects are approved to use what we release via press releases and press channels ...
which You obviously not aware of theirs existence at all nor of existance of press-kits
